Project Background

Bradley’s Kitchen at Winter Park Resort was one of our coolest and most exciting projects to-date showcasing the endless possibilities for a mobile shipping container kitchen. With a more than 75-year history, Winter Park is Colorado’s longest continually operating ski and mountain adventure resort where guests can experience world-class skiing, stunning views, and pure mountain adventure in this Rocky Mountain oasis. The Winter Park team approached us to help create a mobile, functional, and durable shipping container kitchen that they could move around the resort from season to season. Enter Bradley’s, a 40’ custom mobile shipping container kitchen serving gourmet chicken finger and burger options to excited guests all year long. The mobile kitchen fits perfectly into the Rocky Mountain backdrop and was the ideal solution for the Winter Park team.

We took this project from “napkin-sketch” through our 4 Phase Process – design and analysis in Phase 1, fully approved plans through the AHJ in Phase 2 – including ADA compliance and integration with the site development team, complete build-out at our Denver facility in Phase 3, and delivery in Phase 4.

Location

The mobile shipping container kitchen can be found moving between locations at the base of Winter Park Resort in Winter Park, Colorado. Winter Park is an alpine ski resort in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and is about a ninety-minute drive from Denver. In the summer and fall months, you can find the container kitchen at the base of the gondola serving mountain bikers and hikers. In the winter and early spring months, you can find it at the base of Mary Jane Mountain serving ski-in/ski-out skiers and snowboarders. With delicious food, an eye-catching aesthetic, and a convenient location, Bradley’s has become a staple for Winter Park guests and locals.

Project Timeline

Bradley’s followed our standard 4 Phase approach for a mobile kitchen with a correlating timeline. Phase 1 took about three weeks to complete with a focus on the aesthetic design elements and the kitchen layout. We worked hand-in-hand with Winter Park’s team to move the project through Phase 2 and collaboratively develop comprehensive construction drawings while getting sign-offs from the local AHJ. Since this unit is classified as a mobile unit with on-board water tanks, we were able to move quickly through Phase 2. With approved plans in-hand, we jumped into Phase 3 and built our first 40’ mobile container kitchen in ~12 weeks at our Denver facility (a build that takes us half the time now). Delivery in Phase 4 was a bit tricky given the mountainous region, size and weight of the unit (and the fact that it was snowing sideways during the delivery), but we got the unit installed at the base of Mary Jane Mountain and it was up and running in time for ski season.
