Shipping Container Restaurants
Would you like to test a new market for your restaurant, but don’t want to work out of a food truck? Do you have a great idea for a new restaurant concept and want to be both eco-friendly and cost effective? Or are you looking to expand your restaurant to new, permanent locations quickly? These are all excellent reasons to build a shipping container restaurant.
Huge names such as Starbucks and Taco Bell are seeing the value in shipping container restaurants. Starbucks has already opened container restaurants in Chicago, Seattle, Denver, Salt Lake City, and Portland. Taco Bell built a prototype that was stationed at the SXSW Festival last year. Since Taco Bell is growing so rapidly, they will need to build around 300 new stores a year to keep up with demand. Brian Niccol, the CEO of Taco Bell, has stated that “We think we could do 100 to 200 of these container stores. But it has to be in the right climate and right location for it to make sense.” Both Starbucks and Taco Bell are pushing to become more environmentally friendly and for new stores to be LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified. All Starbucks container restaurants are LEED certified.
If you are looking for a durable, eco-friendly building for your restaurant, but aren’t a fan of the corrugated metal/industrial look of the containers, don’t worry! We are able to apply any type of aesthetics you want. We can make the containers look like a rustic BBQ shop, a clay walled cantina, and everything in between. Our designers and engineers will work with you to come up with the perfect design that incorporates your restaurant’s theme.
We can have your restaurant up and running in no time with less building costs. For more information on building your own temporary or permanent shipping container restaurant, contact us through our website or call us at 1-800-869-1277.
