1988 full size school bus for sale. Versatile kitchen is 210 square feet; we’ve sold burgers for 6 years in the parking lot of a hardware store. We currently have running water and hardwired electrical, although the bus is equipped to be mobile, if desired.

All equipment is UL commercial and NSF certified. An outside platform is attached to the back, built to hold a generator. Total of 8 propane hookups (4 inside, 4 outside). Engine and cooking equipment run on one convenient propane system. The ceiling is a bit low on the inside – people 6’1″ and above will be uncomfortable.

Bus is turn-key ready for stationary spots, but will need a generator to be mobile. We are selling to pursue personal opportunities elsewhere, but the bus and equipment are in good working order.

The kitchen was built for our current burger menu, but could also be used for tacos, sandwiches/paninis, breakfast, pulled pork, pitas, general concessions, hot dogs, grilled cheese, and many other things.
