Mobile Kitchens Ltd specialises in the hire and sale of temporary catering facilities and ‘stand-alone’ foodservice equipment.

Short term hire of our versatile units or ‘stand-alone’ equipment for an event, festival, wedding, exhibition, concert or town show, provides an efficient and economic solution to the caterers’ needs in most outdoor environments. Production Kitchens, Prep Kitchens, Dishwash Units and Walk-in Cold Rooms are all available in a variety of sizes and specifications, and can be delivered ready for use. On site they can be positioned close to your marquee.

They are easily installed to services, usually in combination with Propane gas cylinders, which provide a convenient and powerful energy source. Constructed from foodsafe materials and complete with extraction, fire suppression system, hot water services and drainage outlet, a single unit may be all that is needed.

The standard specification of our smallest Production Kitchen unit includes a six burner oven range, salamander grill, twin basket fryer, upright fridge, hot cupboard, single bowl sink unit with integral hand wash basin, plus ample power points to plug in Microwaves, Food Processors, Toasters etc. Internal equipment can be interchanged and clients can effectively specify their preferred layout.

Some advice when considering temporary catering facilities

  • Ideally the site must be accessible by road with any entrances and gateways no less than 3 metres in width.
  • Space to manoeuvre a large Hi-ab truck needs to be considered and overhead cables/trees in the vicinity of the installation should be a minimum of 9 metres above ground to clear Hiab lifting gear.
  • Ground should ideally be level and any soft areas made firm by means of purpose-built trackway to support the vehicle and cabin delivery.
  • Linking of units to form a co-ordinated complex and weatherproof access to an existing building can be specified.
  • All service connection points are provided on the exterior of each unit, and we can provide our own engineers to connect your services, if preferred.
  • Power requirement for single units is from 63 Amps single phase, larger complexes may require a 3 phase supply.
  • Water connection can be made to any potable source at mains pressure, such as a stand-pipe.
  • Grey water from sinks will need to be connected to mains drainage or, if not available, to a temporary waste tank.
