We offer a complete line of mobile food service equipment including concession stands and kiosks. These concession stands and kiosks come in a variety of designs. A typical concession stand as you would find outside a department store such as Canadian Tire is essentially a structure or container that is considered to be semi-permanent. These structures or containers are transported with a flat bed truck and usually raised onto concrete blocks. Some of these containers have heavy duty castors that allow them to be rolled into place but they must either be removed or the container must be secured by some other means such as a chain. They are not mobile in nature since they have no axle, hitch, or trailer wheels. Due to their semi-permanent setup they are designed to be used for long periods of time usually spanning months or years. The structure or containers can be built out of any material but usually a stainless steel exterior is preferable since they are fully exposed to the elements.
Shipping containers have recently become popular for this usage. Although shipping containers are not stainless steel they are constructed with a steel alloy commonly referred to as Cor-Ten Steel. Cor-Ten Steel is a high strength, low alloy structural steel using copper, chromium, silicon and phosphorus as alloys. This alloy displays a greater resistance to corrosion compared to traditional steel. Although Cor-Ten is designed to better withstand corrosion it still fails in comparison to stainless steel.
Kiosks are much smaller than a food concession stand. They are typically used indoors and setup temporarily for fairs, trade shows, exhibitions, and festivals. These units are designed with or without castors and usually have a lower cabinet style body, a counter top, and an upper cabinet box which contains lighting and doubles as a sign. These units can be used for anything from food and drink vending to live product demonstrations. Some of the units we have built over the years have contained fridges, freezers, and sinks with hot and cold running water. These units will need to be plugged into a standard 15-Amp power outlet.
