Description:  25+ years ago, Kevin Carlin, a caterer, when finding no way to produce quality food on location, set about helping others in the same industry by making High Volume Modular and Mobile Kitchens and Facilities. He founded Carlin Manufacturing with partners in 1981, a year after his first build. Now we work with some of the biggest names in the Food and Corporate Industry, along with Military branches, Universities, and Red Cross to provide top quality Kitchens. Our products have reached to over 30 countries throughout the globe, in the former of long kitchen trailers, containers for shipping, even classic food truck designs. We use industry-leading design, state-of-the-art materials and equipment, and years of experience to make the best product for our customers.

There are two main locations for our company, a Midwestern base in Illinois (which mainly focuses on our military kitchens) and a West Coast in Fresno California. We partner and do the custom builds for Kitchens To Go, along with many other leading manufacturers, check out their website for further pictures and videos of our work.

About Andrew

A graduate in Bachelors of the International Culinary School at the Art Institutes, Andrew Steifer has spent his days obsessing over everything food and drink. While working towards his Wine Certification, he started writing his own Food Truck Blog focused on reviewing all the mobile vendors of Minnesota.Being the first person to stubbornly pursue a blog like this for their newly budding street food scene, it's safe to say Andrew's love of food trucks is almost dangerous, at least to his wallet. He's been writing since 2013, drinking since 2010, and consuming every delicious morsel he can find every chance he gets.
