Fast Food meets Shipping Container recycling in a brilliant concept that not only looks amazing, but tastes just as good. The Müvbox is a new concept emerged from Montreal, Canada and is a shipping container that opens up into a full-fledged mobile, outdoor fast food restaurant. Oh, and they serve local lobster.
This restaurant, called Müvbox, can picked up and take to anywhere - an outdoor festival, a new venue, a convention. With a push of a button, the shop goes from closed as tight as a drum to deployed in 1.5 minutes, and with only 3-4 employees the restaurant can be fully open and running in 15 minutes. At the end of the night, take down is just as simple, and all is safe and contained inside. Müvbox is constructed from a standard 20-foot shipping container and has been retrofitted with a modern kitchen and seating for 28 people. Solar panels on the roof generate 40% of the restaurants energy needs, and most likely the remaining 60% comes from propane to fuel the kitchen appliances. The shipping container is reused and the floor is made from recycled tires. The menu is primarily local, healthy, and fresh, serving local delicacies.
Daniel Noiseux, the creator of the concept, wants to expand this idea beyond his own restaurant into other local eateries around the world - possibly cupcakes in London, ptarmigan in Reykjavik, sushi in Japan, pizza in New York. But he also thinks that the concept is applicable for other types of businesses, since the shipping containers are completely customizable. It is a stellar idea and beautifully executed.
