BBQ Container Restaurant

20ft Shipping Container Restaurant with Platform & Staircase

This two-story modular restaurant is one of our major projects to construct a shipping container restaurant for Young Boys Reutlingen, a football club located in Reutlingen, Germany, at Markwasen, that will provide a space for boys to eat, rest, and recover to their best condition before going onto the field. It is designed to incorporate a pop-up restaurant, a commercial kitchen, and a place to eat.

The BBQ restaurant container is built in a 20ft insulated shipping container that features a wooden deck on the roof platform we created, along with railings and stairs installed. As a steel structure, it is robust and stable enough to support people and furniture safely, allowing for the creation of a secure and unique outdoor dining area on its top. This container restaurant design allows people to enjoy their meals while having the best view of the games. The container is repurposed as a permanent outdoor dining establishment, so safety is paramount. All windows and doors are equipped with locks and latches. Once locked, it prevents unauthorized entry. In addition, the logo and restaurant name of Young Boys Reutlingen are prominently added to the container for brand display and promotion.

Inside, you'll find a spacious, bright, and versatile modern kitchen. From fryers and grills to refrigerators and range hoods, all the equipment in the kitchen is top-of-the-line commercial-grade. The gas equipment is connected to the main gas pipeline. Standard 220v outlets are installed on the walls near the workstations, allowing for the use of additional appliances. Sink systems and pressurized water systems are standard.

ETO Shipping Container Restaurants

The Best Solution for Your Mobile Restaurant Business

These modular structures, in essence, are portable restaurants made from shipping containers. They are set up in outdoor settings like food courts, private properties, or attractions as pop-up restaurant buildings, often with several units stacked together to create distinct areas for cooking, serving, and dining. With robust and durable structures, these modular restaurants can serve customers for years, much like traditional brick-and-mortar establishments, but at a lower cost.

Opting for a food container restaurant for your concession business can give you a competitive edge in the fiercely competitive food industry.


- Fully Custom-built Design -

These versatile structures can be tailored to specific needs, allowing for unique and creative restaurant designs. From container dimensions to modifications like insulation, lighting, and layout, we offer various options for internal and external constructions. This level of customization ensures that shipping container restaurants can adapt to specific restaurant concepts, themes, and preferences.

- Less Construction Time -

At ETO, building a restaurant in a shipping container is faster than constructing a physical restaurant. Construction and site preparation often happen simultaneously. Once constructed, the container restaurant can be directly transported to the designated location and put into operation. It is entirely possible for your restaurant to open and start generating profits within two months from the initial design to the final installation.

- One-of-a-kind Industrial Look -

The distinctive industrial look of shipping containers can be the standout feature of your restaurant. With their rugged, modular design, these containers offer a unique and eye-catching aesthetic that sets your food business apart. This not only creates an innovative approach to dining but also builds a strong brand identity for your restaurant.

- Portability & Mobility -

Shipping containers, originally designed for transport, offer remarkable portability. They can be effortlessly picked up and loaded onto trucks, with all the equipment conveniently housed inside. The entire restaurant can be relocated from one site to another without the need for disassembly. For even greater mobility, consider adding wheels underneath to create a mobile restaurant!

- Modular Restaurant Construction -

Converting a shipping container into a restaurant offers the flexibility to design without being constrained by fixed floor plans and configurations. Shipping container cubes are versatile modular units made of robust steel, capable of withstanding immense weights. It is possible to flexibly stack them to create a multi-level modular building. Additionally, when extra space is needed, new containers can be seamlessly integrated to expand the available area.



Durable Shipping Container Restaurants

Designed for Outdoor Environments

Containers stand as one of the most durable outdoor transport units. Restaurants constructed from them almost rival traditional brick-and-mortar establishments in terms of durability and weather resistance. Even after years of exposure to the elements, they do not fade, rust, or peel. To further enhance their longevity in outdoor settings, we've implemented the following modifications during the construction process.
  • All shipping containers are constructed from high-quality steel. No easily deformable plastics or wood susceptible to erosion.
  • All welding joints are reinforced using a special welding technique and polished for structural integrity.
  • A special sealant is applied around the ventilation openings for waterproofing.
  • The walls, doors, and roof are made of corrugated cold-rolled steel with a thickness of 1.2mm.
  • A protective coat of paint, coupled with a specialized anti-rust layer, shields all surfaces from the rigors of weather and natural elements.
  • The galvanized steel frame reinforces the container's strength, allowing it to bear even greater weight.
  • There is a layer of cotton insulation in the middle of the walls to resist high temperatures from the external environment.
  • Floors, constructed from stainless steel, incorporate an anti-slip design for added safety.
  • Concession windows can be locked from the inside.

How to Turn a Shipping Container into a Restaurant?

Our Standardized Processes Make Everything Fast & Easy

Everything begins with meticulous planning, and shipping container restaurant construction is no exception. Our team engages in thorough discussions regarding every aspect of your restaurant's design, such as ventilation, insulation, plumbing, electrical panels, compliance, and more, offering guidance along the way. Following this, we create a turnkey shipping container restaurant design tailored to your needs, budget, and local regulations. This includes detailed 2D container restaurant designs and layouts. Given the multitude of factors to consider, this process can be quite intricate. To expedite it, consider the following aspects:
  • Business Concepts: We've built custom shipping containers tailored for various food businesses. Perhaps, among our prefab shipping container restaurants, there might be one that just needs a few modifications to suit your restaurant concept perfectly.
  • Shipping Container Dimensions: Standard shipping containers come in lengths ranging from 8 to 39 feet, with a width and height of approximately 7 feet. Modifications can be made to these dimensions based on specific requirements.
  • Design Ideas: Do you have photos? We can replicate existing shipping container buildings with the same high quality. Alternatively, browse our gallery for prefab restaurant containers and get inspired!
  • Equipment: What is the restaurant concept? Pizza shipping container or container bar?
  • Health Codes and Regulations: Shipping container restaurants must adhere to local building codes, health and safety regulations, fire codes, and other relevant guidelines to obtain permits and operate. What specific requirements do local health and fire departments have?
  • Budget: Providing us with your budget in advance can help us tailor a solution that meets your expectations.
Once the drawings are confirmed by both parties, our team will commence work, utilizing advanced manufacturing techniques and high-quality steel and equipment during construction and modification to high standards within our factory. Each individual module goes through careful measurements and thorough quality checks to make sure it is strong and fits perfectly into the overall structure.
