At the Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Camp Pendleton in North San Diego County, trainees are physically and mentally challenged every day. It’s a tough job to train for the marines, so it should come as no surprise that these brave men and women can build up an appetite. Recently, the MCAS conducted a training event at Camp Pendleton, which required providing food services to lots of hungry troops.
Special Catering for a Special Training
For an event this special, the hosts hired Pot Licker’s Catering, Inc. to provide food for the two-week stint. Pot Licker’s Catering is a popular restaurant based in Mississippi, known for their barbecue, seafood, and Cajun/Creole specialties.
The folks from Pot Licker’s Catering came out to bring their delicious dishes to the team at Camp Pendleton. However, for this kind of engagement, they needed a kitchen facility to prepare and serve all the food required for the two weeks. That’s why they reached out to Mobile Kitchens USA for a short-term rental of a mobile kitchen trailer. Overall, it was a smooth process to transport, set up and break down the customized kitchen trailer at Camp Pendleton.
What They Rented
For this special training exercise, Pot Licker’s Catering rented a small 8’ x 17’ mobile kitchen trailer. All of our trailers are equipped with standard hood, fire and exhaust systems to be up to code. For cooking, this trailer featured a double-convection oven, a flat grill and a six-burner stove with an oven underneath.
The trailer was designed with a serving window to give the soldiers easy access to the food services. A set of steps was installed for kitchen staff and a roof-mounted air conditioning unit provided comfortable temperatures inside the trailer. Finally, the unit included a three-compartment sink and a hand sink for cleaning dishes and washing hands.
