A. You can talk to a sales person at 888-390-4479, all other inquiries at 888-892-4299 or contact our sales manager Keith, directly at 1-877-471-4438. Keith is a real concessionaire and chef with over 20 years of experience.

9. How do I know what equipment I will need?

A. Tell us your menu, needs and targeted audience and we will help, design and layout your trailer to maximize your profits. The more information you can provide us with the better we can assist you.

10. What comes with my concession trailer?

A. All concession trailers have common elements, including electric, water and plumbing, commercial hood ventilation and windows and equipment that can be modified.

11. Can you help me with my health codes and regulations?

A. Yes of course we will. You must contact your local health department as well as your fire marshal whom will forward to you the requirements that we will follow in order to build your trailer to meet all code and regulations.

There are hundreds of different health codes through out the U.S. all codes will require at least the following: 3-compartment sink with drain boards (drain boards vary state to state), hand wash sink, fresh and gray water holding tanks (gray water is normally 15% larger than the freshwater tank). Hot water, smooth, clean wipe able and light colored interior surfaces. Cooking operations will require a commercial hood ventilation system with a stainless steel backsplash and a manual fire extinguisher.

12. Do I need fire suppression and what is it exactly?

A. A fire suppression unit is an emergency extinguishing system in which nozzles are placed under the commercial hood over each piece of cooking equipment with an open flame (steam table exempt) if the temperature exceeds a certain amount (normally 450-500) a dry liquid powdered chemical will be dispersed and the gas will automatically be shut-off. This system also comes with a K-class fire extinguisher. Even if your local health inspector tells you that you are not required to have a fire suppression unit check with the fire marshal, he has higher jurisdiction than an inspector. Non remember if you choose not to have this unit installed and you travel out of your local area or into another state where it is required and mandatory, you will not be permitted to open and in turn will now be closed down before the event has even opened. Therefore you not only lose the money you would have made for the weekend but you would also lose your entrance fee. So to put it shortly, choosing not to have fire suppression could cost you a lot more than anticipated.

13. Do I need a generator?

A. Many festivals and locations will furnish you with power but many will not. So if you want to be 100% fully self contained the answer is yes. Remembered if you are to loose power at an event of festival the price of a generator would pay for itself in about 3 hours.

14. How will I know if my trailer is big enough?

A. It may be 16 feet long or it may be a 53-foot semi trailer, there is never enough room, so think about this when designing your concession trailer. Consider very carefully the options available like system cabinets instead of worktop tables for extra storage of dry goods or adding shelves wherever you can. Remember you never have enough space.

15. Do you sell used Trailers?

A. No

16. Do you export your trailers/food trucks outside of the United States?

A. Yes we export worldwide.

17. Will I need to pay sales tax on my trailer?

A. If a trailer is purchased and shipped outside the state of Florida, we do not collect sales tax on the transaction. You will be responsible for paying sales tax to your home state when you register the trailer.
