Manufacturer: Container Concepts

Description: Container Concepts is a modular business solutions provider based in Santa Barbara, California. They design and create retail, food service, utility business, and events using container vans as their material. Each concept can be fitted with custom lighting, kitchen equipment, AV displays, and digital menus among others. Brand logos are strategically filled through fabrication.

The company believes in sustainable development, hence their use of recycled containers for every project. This modular concept can be placed in “Brown Space” areas such as old gas stations to give it a new lease on life. Container concepts like these can be transported anywhere in the world using its traditional transit option, which is shipping. The company uses a design-build pricing structure which gives their clients control over the final cost of a custom-build project.
