Kitchen Container FAQs

What is a shipping container kitchen?

A shipping container kitchen is a professionally equipped kitchen that has been set up inside a converted shipping container. The container is modified with electricity, plumbing, and storage facilities so that it can host typical kitchen appliances, such as an oven, fridge, and sink.  

As well as operating as a fully functioning catering space, shipping container kitchens can be moved to different locations, such as festivals, fairgrounds, or private events. This makes them a great option for those who are setting up a mobile catering business.

How much does a kitchen container cost?

The price of converting a shipping container into a portable kitchen unit depends on several factors. These can include:

  • Whether you are looking to convert a new or a second-hand shipping container
  • The number of shipping containers that you want to convert
  • The size of shipping container that you want to convert – we offer 10ft, 20ft, and 40ft standard height and high cube containers (all 8ft wide), as well as custom options
  • The additional features that you require – including, windows and doors, insulation, professional painting, the fitting of electricity, sanitary units and running water, access container ramps, and shelving

What are the benefits of a mobile shipping container kitchen?

There are many reasons why converting a shipping container into a portable kitchen is a great way to support your catering business:

  • Cost-effective: Cheaper than converting a space to build a stationary kitchen  
  • Portable: Able to move it in its entirety between different locations
  • Accessible: Ensure that visitors or staff have a comfortable, effective, hygienic, and convenient place to purchase meals
  • Great option for businesses: Ideal for businesses who move location or need a temporary measure whilst permanent canteens are being built

How can I customise a kitchen container?

Our range of shipping containers can be used singularly or joined together either on top of each other or side-by-side to create a bigger space for your mobile canteen. You can add windows and doors, lighting and electricity, toilets, ramps for easier wheelchair access, and anything else that you might need.
