Partake Collective Redefines Ghost Kitchen Model With Pop-Up Spaces & Food Halls

Over the past few years, the term β€œdigital food hall” has gained popularity as vertically-integrated delivery concepts like Byte Kitchen, Oomi, Local Kitchens, and Wonder cook anywhere from 8-30 brands from a single kitchen. Unlike traditional food halls designed for sit-down occasions in office or residential areas, these startups targeted pickup and delivery with minimal front-of-house space. On the other hand, ghost kitchen landlords like CloudKitchens have also co-opted the term despite their lack of investment into on-premise dining outside of its Miami and NYC locations. But a year-and-a-half ago, Partake Collective opened up as a multi-use ghost kitchen in Long Beach, CA that is home to a diverse mix of prep, commercial, and pop-up kitchens attached to welcoming front-of-house areas that allow for dine-in of local residents in the Downtown community. HNGRY toured the space last week to get a firsthand look at the unique model and uncovered details about its forthcoming location in the Glassell Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.
