Add some star power to your virtual restaurant

We’ve partnered with veteran restaurateur Robert Earl—founder of Planet Hollywood and owner of over 350 restaurants—to launch Branded Virtual Restaurants. They’re turn-key restaurant concepts you can launch with your existing kitchen and staff, and they’re only available from Grubhub. Check out our newest Branded Virtual Restaurant concepts below! 

One of MTV’s most influential personalities and successful DJ, Pauly D has now created a line of classic sub sandwiches.

This authentic menu features ingredients like genoa salami, capicola, artisan pestos and finished with the signature vinaigrette “drip.” Thanks to Pauly D’s love for authentic Italian sandwiches, there’s tons of flavor packed into each along with creative packaging to ensure a unique customer experience.

Mario Lopez is known by many from his work on Access Hollywood and Saved By The Bell. And now, the two-time Emmy-winner brings us traditional Mexican Tortas through his new virtual concept. 


This cuisine is packed with flavorful options such as Pork Carnitas or Chorizo & Egg, and even offers a healthier plant-based option. Quick service Mexican food is super popular and sure to help you reach a new customer base! 

Rap artist, Tyga wants to help up the party game with Tyga Bites. With his love of big flavor, Tyga has come up with flavorful chicken bites seasoned with a variety of spice dusts and dipping sauces that customers can mix and match.

When it comes to marketing, Tyga regularly promotes the Bites to his 39M loyal social media followers. Overall  you can expect a quick and easy menu, and many orders!

A virtual restaurant is a delivery-only restaurant concept that is operated from an existing brick and mortor restaurant location.

Virtual restaurants add an additional revenue stream for a restaurant. With no brick and mortar location or additional overhead needed to operate these concepts, they are a great way to get incremental profits for your business.

Virtual restaurants with Grubhub give restaurant partners the opportunity to open a second, delivery-only menu concept. With Grubhub, restaurants can launch their own unique concept or choose from our list of turn-key Branded Virtual Restaurant concepts to grow their business.

A ghost kitchen is a professional cooking facility for chefs, restaurant operators, and entrepreneurs to launch a delivery-only virtual brand. Think of a ghost kitchen as a co-working space for a virtual restaurant concept. Ghost kitchens are an excellent way for chefs who do not have access to a brick-and-mortar kitchen to launch their own virtual brand. Already established restaurants have also found success using ghost kitchens to expand their delivery capability beyond their brick-and-mortar restaurant’s neighborhood.
