3 Ideas for Shipping Container Kitchens

Check out a few of the great ways HCD Shipping containers can make your dream of a shipping container kitchen, a reality…

Container Prep Kitchen

For the catering industry, outdoor worksites, or any other business that needs to move from one place to another – and to move their food prep capabilities with them – a shipping container prep kitchen is ideal. It’s cost-effective and mobile.

With a high cube 20 or 40-foot container, you’ll have plenty of space for all your industrial-grade appliances, benches, sinks, and storage. We can modify your shipping container kitchens for lighting and electrical, plumbing, and to ensure you have adequate space for keeping your food refrigerated. With a 40-foot container, we can also include a seating area if you want to work a cafeteria into your shipping container kitchen space.

Shipping Container Kitchen Café

Want to jump into the food truck trend in Sri Lanka, without a truck? Instead of the mobile truck, you can convert a mobile shipping container into a mini café, bar, or restaurant with a fully-equipped kitchen. Paint the container to match your brand’s colours. Design it to suit the tastes of your clientele with windows, the right lighting, flooring, and other features. Create spaces for your customers with an indoor bar area, outdoor seating, or a seating space on top of your shipping container kitchens so they can enjoy the view while eating your food.

Container Office Kitchen and Lounge Area

If your business operates in a trendy open space around Colombo, Kandy, Down South or any other cities, consider working a shipping container kitchen into your layout instead of the traditional break room. Set it up for coffee, water, and healthy snacks. Include a seating area for your employees to enjoy their coffee break while brainstorming ideas, or just relaxing.
