Gas Station & Convenience Store

Revitalizing Paradise: A Modular Solution for BP's Gas Station and Convenience Store

We're delighted to share our project supplying a modular convenience store for British Petroleum (BP) in support of the recovery efforts in Paradise, California following the 2018 Camp Fires.

BP Modular Gas Station and Convenience Store in Paradise, California

In April of 2020, BP commissioned Kitchens To Go to design and construct a permanent two-module facility to replace their convenience store that had been destroyed during 2018’s Camp Fire which ravaged Northern California’s Butte County and all but wiped out the town of Paradise.

 

Since the fire affected such a large area so significantly, the rebuilding process in Paradise had become slow in the months following the event, with costs skyrocketing and local construction teams in very low supply. BP reached out to Kitchens To Go to create a factory-built solution that could circumvent the significant costs, long timelines and local challenges that a site-built project would bring with it.

 

KTG’s facility was designed, built, transported and installed at the Paradise site in April of 2021 – just under a year from its commission – far quicker and at a better price point than comparable stick-built projects in the same area.

PopMarts™ by Kitchens To Go®

Transforming Foodservice Operations with PopMarts by Kitchens To Go

Finding ways to engage new habits and traffic patterns became of the utmost importance, and intersected cleanly with the value that KTG brings to the market.

PopMarts™ are a Turnkey Solution

In July 2020, we introduced PopMarts™ to address the new challenges emerging from the outbreak of the pandemic. It quickly became clear that foodservice operations would have to find new and innovative ways to reach customers; many were forced to drastically alter their behavior. Finding ways to engage new habits and traffic patterns became of the utmost importance, and intersected cleanly with the value that KTG brings to the market.
PopMarts™ are a turnkey, low footprint, relocatable foodservice solution to assist with physical distancing requirements, de-densification efforts, speed of grab-and-go service, and frictionless retail experiences. PopMarts™ are 20’ containerized units that can be placed in strategic locations to create outposts to engage new traffic patterns, pull customers away from more dense locations, or even capitalize on newly underutilized real estate. PopMarts™ can be anything from grab-and-go meal stations to convenience store or grocery concepts. And, moving the container seasonally or to follow demand is simple.
Modular construction continues to gain popularity and there are multiple reasons why building modular is the best choice for any budget. While the unit is being constructed, site preparation is occurring simultaneously. Having the building manufactured at the same time that site preparation is going on greatly reduces the overall construction time so whether utilizing a container to launch or expand business, the benefits of choosing this option over a stick-built structure remain the same—quicker ROI. The same goes for shipping containers. Shipping containers and purpose-built structures are perfect for housing kitchens of all shapes and sizes and are right on trend. Whether you’re serving gourmet cuisine, light fare, or simply expanding your program to incorporate grab-and-go or convenience stores, there are no limits to the imagination.
Operators can either lease the KTG branded PopMarts™ or create the configuration and appearance that best integrates with their brand and specific requirements of their operation. Each PopMart™ comes preloaded with equipment so it’s ready for business the moment it’s placed and stocked. And, each unit can be prewired to be integrated with an existing POS system or a contactless mobile payment solution.
With a quick production timeline, operations can make substantive changes faster than ever before with PopMarts™. And with the flexibility, relocate-ability, and low footprint of these containers, operators have the opportunity to reach their customers where they are in ways that traditional construction simply can’t—opening the door to a truly reactive foodservice operation that can be limber enough to tackle the challenges of a dramatically shifting industry.
PopMarts™ by Kitchens To Go® were recognized by the Fast Company editors with a Fast Company 2021 World-Changing Ideas award.

Federal Reserve Board

CASE STUDY

Federal Reserve Board

Kitchens To Go provided a six-module complex solution, that included a temporary kitchen, servery, and dining space during scheduled renovations at the Federal Reserve Board.
Client

Federal Reserve Board, Washington D.C.

The Need

Interim Kitchen, servery and dining space needed during renovation.

 

The Solution

A six-module complex consisting of two Kitchen/Prep Modules with dock doors, one servery module, three dining modules, and one walk in cold storage unit.

project description

Extensive planning and permitting was required to place this six-module complex into an interior courtyard of the historic Eccles Building in the center of Washington, D.C.. A 550 ton crane was used to lift the modules over the building and then place them within eleven feet from the building and the courtyard fountain.

The lift took place between a Saturday and Sunday to minimize disruption to traffic and employees. The finishing kitchen, with integrated dock door and cold storage, allowed for ease of deliveries from both the commissary and suppliers. Due to the expected length of the project, 3+ years, the General Contractor opted to purchase the entire complex.
