All Day Kitchens announced  a $20 million Series B fundraising round to support its debut in Chicago with plans to expand in the San Francisco Bay Area and launch in Texas and other California markets in the coming year.

This latest round, which brings their total funding to $37.5 million, was led by Founders Fund, with participation from Khosla Ventures, Doordash CEO Tony Xu, and Opendoor CEO Eric Wu. 

All Day Kitchens’ mission is to empower restaurants to thrive in the digital ordering and delivery era. The company offers restaurants a network of conveniently located satellite kitchens to quickly reach new customers without upfront investments associated with opening a brick-and-mortar location. This plug-and-play solution allows restaurant partners to immediately bring in revenue as soon as their first sale is made. All Day Kitchens also offers culinary consulting services led by a team of chefs from restaurants like Chez Panisse and The French Laundry. 

With 10 satellite kitchens throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, All Day Kitchens has partnered with San Francisco institutions since 2019 such as China Live, Nopalito, pictured, and Dosa; new local brands like Mac ‘n Cue by International Smoke from Michael Mina and Ayesha Curry; and popular fast-casual brands such as Oren’s Hummus, Poki Time, Glaze Teriyaki Grill and more. 

"Our partnership with All Day Kitchens has allowed us to bring our beloved food and overall brand experience to many more customers who were simply out of reach before,” said George Chen, Founder and Executive Chef at the accoladed fine dining restaurant China Live in San Francisco. “The team cares about the quality of the food and diner experience just as much as we do at our restaurant. It’s a true partnership and the level of hospitality and attention to detail is unmatched.”

Now Live in Chicago

All Day Kitchens is now live in Chicago, well timed to help restaurants reach new customers throughout the Chicagoland area as the industry enters an anticipated upswing. All Day Kitchens has partnered with an eclectic mix of local restaurants including beloved independently-owned spots such as ROOH, Demera and established fast-casual brands including Devil Dawgs, Cheesie’s and uncooked. Locals can expect additional favorites such as Mott Street, HaiSous and Volare in coming months. 

Restaurants were forced to evolve their business models to accommodate the heightened need for takeout and delivery during the pandemic. As dining restrictions are lifted and the industry recovers, All Day Kitchens offers a solution for restaurants to continue serving their customers via takeout and delivery without interruption to their dine-in guests, staff and operations, while ensuring quality and efficiency.
