Food trucks have been all the rage in recent years. It’s a way to take your restaurant on the road and introduce your food to new customers. It’s easy to understand why food trucks get great social media followings and build such loyal customers, despite the need for a brick and mortar restaurant location. Of course, some food trucks are just mobile versions of standard eateries, ideal for catering, special events and general business promotion.
Is a Food Truck the Best Option for You?
As great as a food truck is for a business idea, is it really the best method for making your restaurant or catering business more mobile? That’s what we are going to explore today.
Depending on your business plan and foodservice needs, you may actually get much more bang for your buck with a custom mobile kitchen trailer. Of course, “mobile kitchens” is in our name, so we know a thing or two about taking high-quality custom kitchens on the road at Mobile Kitchens USA!
What is a Mobile Kitchen Trailer?
First, it helps to understand what a mobile kitchen trailer is. In a basic sense, it’s exactly what it sounds like. It is a fully contained commercial kitchen set within a mobile trailer. It can be transported around easily and set up at different locations. Where it differs from a standard food truck is your ability to customize the kitchen in terms of size, appliances and features. Your staff can have more space to work. You can have more storage room, work tables, sinks and dishwashing equipment. Whatever you can imagine, we can design into a custom mobile kitchen trailer.
A mobile kitchen trailer is a great mobile restaurant solution if you set up commonly at special events or do large-scale catering jobs. Smaller mobile kitchen trailers can be used just like a typical food truck. You can drive it all around and quickly set it up to start preparing meals and serving customers. We can create the trailer with service windows, walk-up stairs and handicap-accessible ramps. The inside can have full heating and/or air conditioning to keep your staff comfortable. Trailers can be set up to run on propane, natural gas or electric, depending on where you are setting up the trailer.
Better Kitchen Space. More Customization.
Compared to food trucks, a mobile kitchen trailer offers a more spacious commercial kitchen layout that can be infinitely customized. Mobile Kitchens USA has standard trailers available in a wide variety of sizes and configurations, with modular designs that are easy to customize with the necessary appliances and features.
It is ultimately up to you to decide if a food truck is better for your business or if a mobile kitchen trailer will offer a more effective solution for your mobile restaurant or catering business. The key thing to remember is that you have options and it is worth doing your research to decide what is right for you.
