Kitchen Operating System

Livly was a startup venture initiated by Jonas Stokke. The goal was to let local food entrepreneurs scale beyond their physical limitations through cloud kitchens.


Livly set up hyper-efficient industrial kitchens that produced food on behalf of brands for takeaway only.

The restaurant brand could reach new customers in new geographies without the traditional cost, hassle, and risks associated with traditionally scaling a restaurant concept.

A single Livly kitchen could accommodate up to ten different food brands.

The challenges the technology must solve were notoriously finicky customers' preferences and challenging unit economics.


Firstly is organizing the flow of orders in the kitchen. The Livly operating system received orders from multiple streams and organized and sent them to the right chef at the right time. The backend would contain all up-to-date prices on the raw material, as well as individual chef performances.

The consumer-facing app allowed Livly to establish direct relationships with the end users but, more importantly, to curate the content to the individual needs while promoting menu items that increased Livly's profitability and kitchen efficiency.
