We also supply different sized preparation kitchens, coldrooms / dry storage facilities and warewashing units all of which are available to hire as standalone units or part of a larger temporary complex.

A High Quality Solution

Our temporary kitchens are designed and manufactured to replicate a high quality commercial kitchen environment and are supplied with a range of health and safety features including a full length extraction canopy and fire suppression for production kitchens, gas interlocks, food safe wipe clean walls, non slip flooring and coved architraves for ease of cleaning. Our modular units are designed and built to be a commercial kitchen first and foremost, and not just a modular unit with catering equipment inside.

Designed to Your Requirements

We have a range of over 10,000 items of commercial catering equipment which is used within our portable kitchens. This ensures that we can design a facility that exactly matches your menu requirements. PKL employs a team of CAD designers who will work with you to design your temporary kitchen facility.

Flexible Hire Periods

Our temporary kitchens are available to hire from just a few days to many years. Whether you are holding a weekend event or are undertaking a major refurbishment project, you can hire a kitchen from us for as long as you need with the added flexibility that if your project should extend for any reason, you can easily extend the rental period to suit your requirements.

Looking For A Larger Facility?

If you have a larger catering requirement, we have a huge amount of experience in supplying large scale temporary catering complexes, which are sometimes on site for a number of years and are capable of supplying 100s or 1000s of meals each day. If you do have a catering requirement on a temporary basis, we’ve provided some starting points below, to help you get an idea of the sort of facility you may require.

Proven Packages and Favoured Footprints

PKL Proven Packages and Favoured Footprints have been developed from our experience of delivering over 10,000 temporary kitchen facilities over the last 25 years. Proven Packages are combinations of our portable kitchens and ancillary units that have been linked together to form instant catering facilities capable of feeding anywhere from a few to a few thousand people each day. Similarly, our Favoured Footprints are pre-designed layouts of catering equipment combinations, designed to run along the production side of our temporary kitchens.

In both cases these pre-designed unit and equipment footprints can be used to provide an instant solution if required or can be used as a starting point for a more bespoke design to suit your requirements.

Open Plan Temporary Kitchens

For longer term or larger volume catering requirements open plan temporary kitchens provide an ideal solution. PKL is vastly experienced in designing and delivering open plan kitchens, having provided temporary catering facilities at the last four Olympic Games, capable of serving 50,000 meals per day, as well as facilities for the Prison Service, the NHS and the MOD.
Health and Safety Features

We have invested a large amount of time and resource to ensure that all of our portable kitchens meet the latest health and safety regulations. All of our temporary kitchens are supplied with automatic fire suppression (production kitchens), food safe wipe clean walls and non slip flooring.
