INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – An Indianapolis startup that operates delivery-only restaurants is planning to open additional kitchens in Broad Ripple and Fishers. ClusterTruck’s expansion comes less than a year after opening its first suburban “ghost kitchen” in Carmel.
The company says the Broad Ripple location is set to start serving the midtown delivery zone on Monday, and the Fishers delivery zone will open October 8.
“Since 2016, our customers have begged for an expanded delivery zone here in Indianapolis, but our only solution to ensure the model delivered on its promises was to add ghost kitchens across the city,” said Chris Baggott, co-founder and chief executive officer of ClusterTruck. “We believe hungry people should never have to choose between the convenience of fast delivery, the food quality of a sit-down restaurant, and the personality of street food. And, with takeout and delivery continuing to be a preferred method of dining, the timing felt right to increase our footprint and provide a convenient, crave-worthy breakfast, lunch and dinner menu to delivery zones serving Broad Ripple and Fishers.”
ClusterTruck says it is also set to open its second delivery-only restaurant in Dublin, Ohio in November.
ClusterTruck’s software uses custom algorithms and machine learning to optimize kitchen and delivery operations. The company says its systematic approach to meal delivery ensures that nearly every order gets to the customer within seven minutes of the meal’s preparation.
The new Broad Ripple and Fishers kitchens will serve the same menu as ClusterTruck’s Indianapolis and Carmel kitchens.
