The idea behind the restaurant is rooted in a recent development known as a “ghost kitchen,” wherein delivery-only food services like MrBeast Burger employ existing kitchens to complete orders. The 19 MrBeast Burger locations in Connecticut are all housed in pre-existing kitchens or restaurants. The virtual restaurant hires outside contractors to provide the space and the crew, which allows it to fulfill orders without having to hire its own staff or open a physical restaurant.
