The first and only mobile, ghost kitchen in New York, Rollin Ghost is something extraordinary. Offering six unique food concepts, their array of menus make them a great choice for any event or catering needs.

As a ghost kitchen they provide opportunities for local chefs and restaurants to promote their concepts while on the road. The idea behind Rollin Ghost comes from local executive chef Jason Tepper.

Cool but, what is a Ghost Kitchen?

A ghost kitchen is a new concept in the restaurant industry that involves setting up a facility that is solely dedicated to producing virtual brands, or restaurants without a physical location.

Benefits of a Ghost Kitchen

Ghost Kitchens provide kitchen space for rent, allowing entrepreneurs to launch their own virtual brands with minimal overhead costs. They are cost-effective and convenient and allow businesses to focus on creating high-quality food products while avoiding the costs associated with running a traditional restaurant.

The Art is in Sandwich

In addition to the Rollin Ghost, Chef Tepper also runs a locally owned sandwich shop out of Patchogue New York called 'The Artisan',  offering a delicious selection of sandwiches, sides and salads. Like the Rollin Ghost, all ingredients are locally sourced, including fresh vegetables and house-smoked meats.

We tried and LOVED the Bahn Mi sandwich. This delicious sandwich features tender slices of Vietnamese pork, complemented by creamy mayonnaise and a mix of pickled root vegetables for a tangy crunch. Fresh English cucumber and jalapeno peppers add a refreshing touch, while a generous sprinkle of cilantro brings a burst of herbaceous flavor.

The Artisan is available for catering and comes with great reviews.
