Why a container kitchen?

-Construction time: kitchen containers are typically ready much faster than building out on site from scratch! This means you are up and running faster for a quicker ROI!

-Customizable: Mobile container kitchens can be customized to meet your exact needs with no wasted space!

-Strong and weatherproof! Shipping containers are made of heavy duty steel, and are naturally weather tight! We insulate and reinforce this frame to create an even stronger construction!

Upcycling: a 40’ container is made of over 8000lbs of steel, by not letting a container go to waste, you reduce the amount of new construction materials!

-Food safety requirements: your prefab shipping container kitchen meets and exceeds all food safety requirements!

There is usually no foot traffic by customers as the orders are typically placed online through delivery apps and picked up by the driver to be delivered! This unique design lowers the liability of having customers in the store, and allows for a lower cost than a full dine in restaurant! These units can be freestanding and utilize external water and power connections!
