Containerized kitchens are high cube 20’ x 8’ and 40’ x 8’ units with high volume production capacity. Containerized kitchens may operate stand alone or multiple units may be connected to create a commercial kitchen complex. Containerized kitchens allow easy integration with free span structures that can provide additional prep, dining, and serving areas.
