These are used to provide a wide range of temporary catering solutions at events including music festivals, sporting events, corporate hospitality catering, summer balls, conferences and exhibitions, air shows, scout camps, religious festivals, TV and film sets and many many more.

Event Kitchens for any Requirement

PKL supply a wide range of temporary event kitchens starting from small Portable Kitchen buildings through to large-scale open plan kitchens, used as pop up restaurants or banqueting facilities. We also supply a wide range of support facilities such as coldrooms, dry storage and warewashing units, which can be linked to our Portable Kitchens. In addition, PKL are experts in the supply of large-scale temporary catering facilities for use at major events around the world such as the Athletes Village kitchen and dining complexes at events including the Olympic and Winter Olympic Games.

If your event is taking place in an existing building or tented structure, PKL Mobile Canopies are the ideal solution. Mobile canopies have been designed specifically for use in venues such as marquees or stadia and come supplied with extraction and fire suppression. Mobile canopies can be installed with catering equipment at PKL, so they can be delivered to site ready for connection to services.

The Introduction of CDM Regulations

The introduction of CDM regulations will mean a higher level of safety standards for the events industry, similar to that seen within the construction sector.  Venue owners and event organisers will often see legal liability for compliance falling to them as the main contractor, and unless managed carefully will be liable for any wrongdoings by subcontractors working on an event.

PKL has supplied temporary catering facilities to large construction companies for many years and as a result is fully compliant with CDM regulations. We have already been supplying a CDM compliant product and service to the events sector for many years.

For more information regarding changes to health and safety regulation within the events, see our blog post about it here.
