With many different city and county regulations being enacted throughout California, restaurants are being forced to continually adapt to new ways of doing business. Some have been able to thrive. Others have struggled being limited to take-out service or significantly reduced dine-in capacities. It’s not easy to change your business model so drastically, but it’s what restaurant owners have to do in order to survive.
More and more California restaurants have decided to increase their outdoor dining spaces as long as indoor dining remains limited. Tables are being set up outside and some are even bringing parts of their kitchens outside. It’s a smart move if you can utilize your sidewalk space or parking lot to allow for more outdoor diners and ample social distancing between tables. Some restaurants are even taking their services on the road with mobile kitchens that can be set up in different places around town as “pop-up” restaurants that draw a lot of attention from loyal customers and will likely introduce some new customers to their cuisine, as well.
With these outdoor expansions, restaurant owners are looking for different solutions to help provide the same level of customer service and food preparation that they are known for. Many are turning to Mobile Kitchens USA for custom outdoor and mobile kitchen solutions, as well as comfortable temporary outdoor dining rooms. Everything we do is custom-built to meet the needs of our customers, and this is more important than ever as restaurants look to expand and improve their outdoor dining services until we can get back to business as usual.
Let’s take a look at a few of our popular temporary kitchen and dining area options that are making a huge difference for restaurant owners throughout California:
Mobile Kitchen Trailers
If you are looking to mobilize your restaurant or set up a temporary kitchen, then you will definitely want to consider renting a mobile kitchen trailer from Mobile Kitchens USA. These mobile kitchen units give you so much more than a basic food truck. You can pick the size and type of trailer you need. It can then be customized with all the appliances, work tables, sinks and storage that you require to run a fully stocked kitchen. Everything you need will be in one custom-built unit designed to meet your specifications.
A mobile kitchen trailer can be taken anywhere and set up to run on different power sources such as natural gas, electrical or propane. They can be built with a service window for walk-up service. They can include heat or air conditioning to keep your kitchen staff comfortable. They can be arranged any way you see fit to keep your commercial kitchen running smoothly. We also have trailers specifically for mobile refrigeration, mobile freezers and mobile dishwashers.
If you are looking for something less mobile to set up on your restaurant property, then you will want to look at a Mobile Kitchens USA skid kitchen or container unit. These can be customized just like our mobile kitchen trailers. However, they are delivered to your lot and set up with a semi-permanent footing. All mobile kitchens from Mobile Kitchens USA can be rented for any period of time. You simply let us know your desired lease period. We’ll also take care of the delivery and removal of the unit!
Many restaurant owners are opting to bring in a temporary tent kitchen. These are extremely easy to set up and, just like everything else we offer at Mobile Kitchens USA, can be custom-designed. You pick the size of tent you want and the features you need inside (including climate control). These tents are more cost-effective than a full trailer or skid kitchen unit, but provide plenty of protection from the elements for your kitchen staff. Tent kitchens are a great temporary solution during the COVID-19 pandemic. Nobody knows exactly how long this will last and how dining regulations will change from month to month. Renting a tent kitchen from Mobile Kitchens USA gives you a lot of flexibility while allowing you to expand your outdoor dining services in these unusual times.
Tented Dining Areas
Perhaps our most popular product in 2020 has been our custom tented dining areas. These high-quality tents will provide cover for your diners and allow them to have a comfortable space to sit and enjoy their meals. Mobile Kitchens USA tented dining spaces can be sized and laid out to your specifications. You can provide your own furniture or we can offer up chairs and tables as part of your lease contract. The tents can include walls and windows for full protection from wind and rain (including climate control such as heating and air conditioning), or you may prefer an open-air design if your restaurant is based in a nice location where the weather is less of a concern.
Mobile Restroom Trailers
Another concern during the pandemic is public restrooms and keeping things as sanitary as possible. If you don’t want your outdoor diners or workers using your indoor restrooms, you can also put a mobile restroom trailer on site. These trailers will have full plumbing, sinks, soap dispensers, hand sanitizer dispensers and everything else you need to provide a sanitary restroom experience for your customers.
Custom Dining Solutions
