Description:  The team at Upfitters has been building food trucks for almost a decade. We have top name clients including The Salvation Army, Samaritan’s Purse, Cousins Maine Lobster, Arizona Cardinals and George Brazil Heating/Plumbing/AC- just to name a few. We are a family owned and operated company founded on Christian beliefs with the goal to make dreams come true. We have licensed welders, plumbers, electricians, etc on our manufacturing team.

In the office, we have CAD designers and professionals who are capable of drafting up the vehicle of your dreams. Our guys in the shop then create this drawing into your perfect truck. We have hundreds of satisfied clients and our product is all around the world. In 2011, we went to Northern Canada with two shipping containers that we upfitted into a kitchen and dining room in only 10 days. In 2010, we upfitted two containers into a kitchen and dining room and sent those to Haiti.

We started this company to see dreams come true. The founder and his wife originally built the first trailer for her to run on her own. Before it was finished, someone made an offer they could not refuse. This happened a second time. That’s when he realized how many people had a dream of getting into the food truck industry and decided he wanted to make those dreams come true. We are now a company with almost 50 employees.
We specialize in every kind of food truck. Do you have a unique idea? We can build it!
