Dark Kitchens

Get the tools you need to run a successful dark kitchen


Dark kitchens, ghost kitchens, remote kitchens, virtual kitchens—whatever you call them—are they the way of the future?

We can’t say for certain.  

But what we can tell you for sure is that we offer a variety of solutions to help your dark kitchen run smoothly and maximise efficiency—should you decide to take the leap.

Here are the basics you’ll need to run a dark kitchen:


automated labelling system

What makes a dark kitchen profitable? The short answer—efficiency and cost-reduction.

For dark kitchens to hit the mark in these two areas, they need to keep inventory organized, reduce food waste, and minimise labelling errors. An automated labelling system like the DateCodeGenie can help.

The DateCodeGenie allows ghost kitchen staff to create and customise labels for almost anything that needs labelling. This includes labels to help ghost kitchen staff keep track of which prep ingredients belong to which brand (since ghost kitchens often host several different brands at a time).

Ingredients lists, nutritional information, price, logos, use-by dates, inventory labels, tamper-evident labels—the DateCodeGenie can customise, store, and print it all with the click of a button. Easy.

An efficient labelling system can also help dark kitchen cooks and delivery drivers keep track of orders easier. This helps each order make it to the right customer, which increases customer retention and satisfaction.

NCCO offers several DateCodeGenie models—including the DateCodeGenie Lite and the DateCodeGenie Fit—that work especially well for ghost kitchens because of their smaller footprints.

SecureIt® tamper-evident labels

A safe and positive experience—that’s what keeps customers loyal to your brand. Part of creating that memorable experience means reassuring patrons that their delivery orders are safe to enjoy by the time they arrive.

SecureIt tamper-evident labels make that possible.

Every time your customers receive an order that’s sealed with an unbroken SecureIt label, they can trust that their food is safe to enjoy. That extra reassurance allows your customers to fully enjoy their meals and create a positive association with your brand.

NCCO International manufactures several tamper-evident labels that work for drinks, to-go bags, clam-shell boxes and many other types of containers. Thanks to their strong adhesive that resists moisture, SecureIt labels adhere to paper, plastic, foil and most other common materials used in to-go containers.


SecureIt delivery bags

Like our tamper-evident labels, SecureIt bags protect delivery orders and reassure customers that you’re willing to go the extra distance to keep them safe.

Strong internal handles slide through sidewall slots to lock the opening of each bag. Included SecureIt labels provide the final seal over the top. Each bag includes a pre-printed area for recording order information.

SecureIt bags include reinforced wide bottoms to accommodate larger orders, which means dark kitchen staff can fit more food into each bag. This extra carrying capacity also makes food transport easier for delivery drivers. And with fewer bags for each order, ghost kitchen staff and delivery drivers can better keep track of orders. This reduces the likelihood of misplaced orders and disappointed customers.

Bags come in white paper that lays flat for easy storage in dark kitchens where space is limited.

Each Bag Delivery System includes 250 bags and 250 25mm SecureIt labels. To explore your options and learn more, click the button below.
