DENVER — A new restaurant chain has opened its first location west of the Mississippi in Denver. ClusterTruck is a delivery-only restaurant chain based in Indianapolis.
Channel 9News reported that the company’s Denver location opened its so-called ‘secret kitchen’ last week near downtown. It serves breakfast, lunch and dinner to a limited area around the kitchen. Customers order their food online from 11 virtual food truck menus.
While owning a building seems like something every successful business should do, that’s not always the case. For many companies, it makes more sense to continue leasing space, freeing up time and capital that can be better utilized in other ways.
The choices are then cooked from scratch and delivered within 15 to 20 minutes. Dishes run about $10 each, and delivery is free.
“Delivery-only works out great for a lot of people, especially people that are based downtown that don’t have easy restaurant options to be able to walk to,” ClusterTruck Denver executive chef Dave Hopkins said. “We’re there when they want something that they don’t want to cook. We’ve got up to 100 different menu items. They’ve got great variety and they just order it and we bring it right to their curb.”
ClusterTruck’s delivery zone is online.
