Here are 5 things we recommend keeping in mind when renting a mobile kitchen trailer from Mobile Kitchens USA:
Obviously, it really helps to have a budget in mind. How much are you willing and able to spend to rent your mobile kitchen trailer? There are many different sizes and configurations to consider (see #2 and #3) and customizable features that you can include (see #4). You want to be careful not to spend more than you should. You want to have a budget planned out and then Mobile Kitchens USA can help you find the best solution to fit your foodservice needs and your budget.
2. Type of Temporary Kitchen
At Mobile Kitchens USA, we offer a wide variety of different temporary kitchens and mobile kitchen units. We have mobile kitchen trailers, skid kitchens, tent kitchens, multi-unit kitchens and even specialty units like mobile dishwashing trailers and mobile refrigerator/freezer units. Each temporary kitchen can be customized to meet your needs and delivered directly to your site for easy setup.
3. Size & Space
Just as there are different types of temporary kitchens, there are different sizes and interior/exterior configurations. You want to select a size based on your foodservice and storage quantities. You want to have ample workspace and food prep areas for your kitchen staff. You may also consider having service windows and stairs/ramps on the outside for customers to place orders and pick up their meals. Choosing the ideal size and configuration will depend on how you intend to use the mobile kitchen.
You can choose from one of our pre-fabricated commercial kitchen layouts or work with the Mobile Kitchens USA team to customize your mobile kitchen trailer. Let us know the types of appliances you need, along with cold and dry storage space, workspace, dishwashers/sinks, etc. Do you need hot and cold running water from an exterior water tank? Do you need heating or air conditioning for your staff? Are the appliances being run through a natural gas line, electric line, generator or propane? These are all good questions to ask as you customize your mobile kitchen unit.
5. Lease Period
Lastly, you will need to know how long you are planning to rent the mobile kitchen trailer. Is the rental only for a few days, a few months or longer? We have some clients who are doing a major kitchen renovation at a school or hospital campus and they need to have a full temporary kitchen on site for several months in order to provide uninterrupted food service. Other clients may only be renting a mobile kitchen for a day or two for a special event like a wedding, concert or sporting event. Knowing your ideal lease period can help you maximize your rental budget.
These are some of the key things you will want to keep in mind when selecting, customizing and renting a mobile kitchen trailer or other temporary service units from Mobile Kitchens USA.
