This pillar covers everything in and around them, from what’s a dark kitchen to the best technology to make them strive. Here we speak about virtual brands, data-driven menus, and how to build a profitable delivery-only business.

Following these guidelines will help us review and potentially publish your post faster.

1. Get in sync with our style

To get a feel for what we publish, read a few of our posts and pay attention to the structure (short intros, headings, paragraphs, and images). You can also skim and explore other posts to better understand our style. This will help you craft a submission that fits in well on our website.

2. Same old idea?

It’s essential to ensure that your proposed topic has not already been covered on our website. If we have previously addressed the topic, we may still be interested if you can provide a more current angle or a fresh perspective. You can check if we have covered your topic by doing a site search on Google.
