VDC’s newest virtual brand TikTok Kitchen dominates the news this past week, as it looks to make viral TikTok creative recipes readily available for customers.

The year 2022 will soon be here!  Registrations and sponsorships are available for the 2nd Annual Ghost Kitchen & Virtual Restaurant Conference on June 9-10, 2022 in Dallas.

Feel free to share the Ghost Kitchen Digest with any co-workers, clients, or vendors whom you think would be interested.  There is no cost and no selling of email addresses.  Just doing our part to help us all stay informed.

There will be no Ghost Kitchen Digest next week.  Hopefully you’ll have the opportunity to spend time with family and friends over the next few weeks.  They are why we all work so hard in this industry, so don’t let that opportunity pass.

And now, the news…
