The company’s award-winning Bolt-On Kitchen solution, recently recognized with a National Restaurant Association Kitchen Innovations™ (KI) Award, has been used in a variety of temporary environments, from renovations and expansions to disaster response. In fact, Kitchens To Go’s Bolt-On Kitchens are frequently seen arriving alongside first-responders at disaster locations, such as Hurricane Sandy, Hurricane Katrina and Joplin, MO after 2011’s EF5 tornado that hit the city.

In each instance, the commercial food service operations in these locations did not have the luxury of waiting the typical eight months’ time that is usually required to gain permit approvals, design and then build a new kitchen on site. The Bolt-On Kitchen can be deployed in less than half this time, and in some instances can be up and running in under 30 days, providing a high quality commercial kitchen solution that arrives on site and ready for installation and operation.

Unlike temporary solutions, the Bolt-On Kitchen is a customized pre-constructed, code compliant turnkey kitchen that's permanently affixed to a building, enabling reallocation of interior space. This value was demonstrated in several recent projects, including projects at a school, at a software company and at a government facility.

When deployed at Phillips Academy in Andover, MA, four modular Bolt-On Kitchens were attached to the school’s outdoor hockey arena, which was converted into an enclosed open dining space. This space served as the temporary dining commons for a two year period during the renovation of the historic on-campus dining commons. After the renovation was completed, two of the four modular kitchen units remained in place to provide foodservice and catering support when the former hockey arena was converted again, this time into a special events center.

Another deployment occurred at Micron Technology in Manassas, VA, where Kitchens To Go’s modular kitchen units were connected to an existing Micron Technology production facility to provide foodservice production, servery and dining space. In addition to dining, the attached clear span space was used as a gathering place for company meetings and special events. The additional Bolt-On space allowed for the existing interior foodservice area to be “re-captured” for microchip production, thus providing a higher return per square foot use of the existing building.

The Bolt-On Kitchen has also been deployed by the U.S. government. After completing construction of a new special events center at the Washington Naval Yard in Washington, D.C., it became apparent that there was a need for additional foodservice production. The only viable option to meet the requirements of the catering program and banquet rooms was to add kitchen space through a Bolt-On Kitchen. The exterior of the bolt on facility was constructed to match the exterior façade of the existing special events center, making it a seamless and attractive addition.

“Our temporary kitchens, including our Bolt-On models, have been installed in less than one month, are code-compliant and have the ability to serve our clients for years to come,” said Ralph Goldbeck, AIA, and partner, Kitchens To Go. “Our products are built to meet the highest specifications required in the U.S., and our modular solutions have earned their reputation as quality products that exceed our clients’ expectations time after time.”
