Viral Video Alleges That Grand Rapids Restaurants Are Catfishing You
I never thought I would see the day that I would get catfished by a restaurant.
All I wanted was to order some food from DoorDash and I noticed a few restaurants I had never heard of before.
I never order from restaurants I do not know without looking them up first.
When I typed in one of the places' names, a TikTok video came up.
Katie Marble unlocked a true secret for me. Restaurants are catfishing us! To do this, they use a term called "ghost kitchen".
Have you ever heard of a ghost kitchen?
Kickfin says that
Ghost kitchens are essentially restaurants without the dining space. Their focus is to sell and fulfill online food orders for delivery using third-party apps like Grubhub, UberEats, and DoorDash, or with their own delivery operation. As a result, they typically have no visible storefront.
Grand Rapids Ghost Kitchens
In the TikTok video, Katie listed a few of the ghost kitchens in Grand Rapids.
So, if you see these restaurants, now you will know what they TRULY are.
