“With the recent explosive growth of delivery apps, we felt it was the right time to experiment with a ghost kitchen,” said Kurt Pahlitzsch, VP of Operations, Doherty Enterprises. “Our first-ever Applebee’s ghost kitchen in Wynwood allows us to explore the business viability of getting Applebee’s meals to more people without the sizable commitment of opening a brick-and-mortar restaurant.”

Delivery from the new kitchen will be available seven days a week from 11:30 a.m. to midnight. The ghost kitchen will be in the Wynwood Eatery at 1900 NE Miami Ct., Miami.
