custom mobile kitchen for UC Santa Barbara

  • University of California – Santa Barbara

When UCSB was awarded the NCAA Men’s College Cup Soccer tournament, preparations were needed to host the thousands of fans that would be descending upon the campus. A customized concession trailer was designed to allow five-to-seven staff members fill the orders placed by customers at lowered serving windows. The 46’ x 8.5’ trailer features fryers, a four-burner cook top, a double-stack convection oven, a char broiler, hot holding wells, reach-in refrigeration, overhead air conditioners and three soda dispensing systems.

The trailer also serves other outdoor activities on and around campus that require high-volume food service. In addition, the mobile kitchen is a resource for the community during times of emergency.


mobile kitchen for UC San Diego

  • University of California, San Diego

UCSD is a highly progressive campus relative to the caliber and vast array of Dining Services offerings. With a surge in student body population, the Dining Service team was interested in incorporating a second food truck to their foodservice venues on campus. The 20’ food truck, aptly named “Flavors of the World” features a rotating menu of international cuisine, specifically focusing on unique, micro-regional offerings.

Several elements were incorporated into the design to ensure it would be as efficient, interactive and enjoyable as possible, both for campus customers as well as team members operating the unit. A raised roof along with sky lights, which provide more spacious and illuminated interiors, as well as a distinct chroming and powder coating package enhance the overall aesthetic. A sound system with exterior speakers and PA system minimize the risk of customers picking up incorrect orders while also enabling the unit operator to project music complementary to the food being served.


Frequently Asked Questions about Mobile Kitchens:

  • Is a mobile kitchen the same as a food truck?
    • A food truck is built on a drivable chassis. A mobile kitchen can be either drivable or a trailer that is towed. Depending on the size and weight, mobile kitchen trailers can be towed with vehicles ranging from a 1-ton pickup truck to a semi-tractor trailer.
  • How are utilities handled with mobile kitchens?
    • Mobile kitchens can be completely self-contained with on-board water tanks, waste tanks, propane and a generator. This allows the kitchen to function in any location. Depending on length of time in one location, various fuels and water may need to be delivered to the site for re-filling and the waste water tank may need to be emptied.
