If you are in the market to buy or rent a mobile kitchen trailer, we at Mobile Kitchens USA know that it’s not a “one size fits all” prospect. For example, an Italian restaurant might utilize different equipment than a bakery would, and vice versa. Similarly, a mobile kitchen should be completely tailored to your menu, as well as your specific food service needs.
Every mobile kitchen trailer from Mobile Kitchens USA is customizable. From the overall size of the unit to the storage space, shelves, appliances, power supply and more, you can get a mobile kitchen space set up exactly as you need it.
Mobile Kitchens USA has put together some of the factors to consider when customizing your own mobile kitchen unit:
Finding the right size for your mobile kitchen trailer will depend on many factors: you want to ensure it’s big enough to handle your needs, but not going to take up too much room. Consider how much space you will need for equipment and storage to meet your daily food service expectations. The size of the kitchen may also depend on the size of the staff you plan to have working in the kitchen. If you have simple food prep requirements, a smaller unit may be the way to go.
Consider the size of the appliances you will be using for the amount of food you plan to serve. Even more importantly, the type of cuisine you serve will dictate the types of appliances you need. For example, when it comes to the oven, you may want to look at a cook-and-hold oven versus a multi-cook oven or a smoker oven. Do you need warming cabinets or holding drawers? What size refrigerator or freezer will you need? These are all important questions to ask before configuring the set-up for your mobile kitchen appliances.
Storage & Shelving
Make sure your refrigerator or freezer is not only big enough but that it also has the proper settings for your various ingredients. Shelving, cabinets, drawers and even food warmers also need to be considered for the ideal mobile kitchen size and layout. Depending on the cuisine you serve and the number of ingredients you need to store, this will help you figure out how much storage space is necessary.
Figure out if you will be running your equipment on natural gas, propane or electricity. You will be responsible for supplying the power source, but the mobile kitchen can be set up with the required appliances and equipment to run as needed on your power supply.
Decide whether an air conditioner or heater is needed inside the mobile kitchen. Will you need a water tank? Is it necessary to have stairs, a service window or a handicap ramp for customers or kitchen workers? These are all important things to keep in mind.
There can be a lot to consider when selecting the right mobile kitchen trailer. Mobile Kitchens USA can customize the ideal mobile kitchen unit for your specific food service needs. To learn more about mobile kitchen units available for purchase or rent, contact Mobile Kitchens USA today!
