MODULAR BAR FAQs

Speed to Market: Our modified shipping container and steel-framed modular bars are an ideal solution for businesses that lack time. Building a brick-and-mortar bar can take several months to years, whereas ROXBOX can design, build, and deliver a bar within 2 to 6 months (depending on the design choices and level of customization required)

Cost-Efficient: Compared to building a brick-and-mortar bar, purchasing a ROXBOX shipping container or steel-framed modular bar can be a very cost-efficient solution and you can expect up to 20% savings. Our shipping container bar models start at $49,000.

Develop a New Revenue Stream: Installing a shipping container bar can provide a business or venue with an additional source of income. These businesses can either operate the bar themselves or rent out the bar to multiple vendors.

Efficient Design: Our shipping container bars have multiple service windows, which allow for maximum efficiency when serving crowds of all sizes. Furthermore, our walk-in coolers (accessible via the container’s cargo doors) keep drinks cold 24/7 and make it easy to restock your product.

Stress-Free Install: Building a brick-and-mortar bar can be a very painful construction experience that involves dozens of subcontractors. Additionally, traditional construction is notorious for errors, delays, and cost overruns. Opting for a ROXBOX shipping container bar means working with one modular partner to deliver a prefabricated building that can be operational within days of delivery.

Permanent & Mobile Designs: Our customers can design & build a permanent or mobile and that perfectly fits their needs and matches their brands. Our permanent bars will fixed to your foundation and connected to onsite utilities, while our mobile bars will come equipped with an onboard tank system and an SO plug for electricity.

Limited Space: For those looking to open a business in a location with limited space, shipping container and steel-framed modular bars have a small footprint and can easily fit in a tight space.

Unique Aesthetic & Customer Experience: Shipping container bars also offer food service businesses the opportunity to create a unique experience for their customers. With the right design, a shipping container bar can be a great and original way to stand out from the competition and attract customers.

Durable: Built from either a Corten steel shipping container or a custom steel frame, our bars are disaster-resistant and built to last many years. Simple paint touch-ups are all that is needed to keep your unit operating and looking good for years to come.

Sustainability: By upcycling a shipping container and modifying it into a bar, entrepreneurs and businesses can reduce their carbon footprint and help reduce the amount of construction waste in landfills. Additionally, our units are reusable and recyclable which makes them an even better eco-friendly alternative to brick and mortar alternatives.

The cost of your shipping container bar project is determined by the project pathway you choose.

ROXBOX Model: ROXBOX Models are modified shipping container products in the Food & Beverage and Commercial industries. ROXBOX models come standard with essential specifications and features, while offering customers the opportunity to customize their unit with a variety of optional add-ons and upgrades (at additional cost). Choosing a ROXBOX bar model therefore ensures the most competitive pricing among the three build pathways. The below prices indicate the starting price for each of our ROXBOX bar models. To learn more about each model, click here to visit out ROXBOX Models webpage.

• 20′ BeerCan Lite: Starting at $49,000
• 20′ BeerCan Heavy: Starting at $69,000
• 20′ BeerCan: Starting at $99,000
• 20′ BillyBox (Full-Service Bar): Starting at $105,000 (Permanent) or $121,500 (Mobile)

Custom Project: Custom projects allow our customers to bring their wildest visions to life. With custom projects, we work with your team to design + build your vision from scratch, bringing a concept to reality. Therefore, this pathway adds significant costs to a project. It is therefore challenging to estimate the cost of a custom project until after we have a discussion about your concept/vision and dive into the details of the project. Many variables go into the cost of a custom bar project, including (but not limited to): design, size of container(s), number of containers, equipment requirements, mobile vs. permanent building classification, architecture & engineering requirements, code & permitting requirements, signage/branding, project location, etc. Therefore, if you are interested in the cost of a custom project, please fill out an inquiry form in the “Contact” tab in the menu above and we will be in touch shortly.

Shell Pathway: By choosing the shell pathway, ROXBOX simply provides the modified container(s) with doors, windows, framing, insulation under the floors, and exterior paint while your team and/or a local General Contactor finishes out the project on-site and completes all on-site inspections. Therefore, “shells” are our least expensive and fastest option but are also our most limited as far as scope.

It is challenging to estimate the total cost of a shell project until after we have a discussion about your concept/vision and dive into the details of the project. Multiple variables go into the cost of a shell project, including (but not limited to): the size of the containers/modules, number of containers/modules, architecture/engineering requirements, and design costs.

Whereas ROXBOX models and custom projects will arrive on-site essentially turn-key and have already been fully inspected at our facility by approved 3rd-party inspection agencies, shells are limited to modifying the unit to the point of the first inspection. Once the shell(s) arrive, a licensed General Contractor takes over and finishes the build-out on-site with correlating inspections. Therefore, your all-in costs for the unit will be similar in the end but this pathway is seen as a more traditional construction pathway.

The timeline for your shipping container bar project is determined by the project pathway you choose:

ROXBOX Model: Choosing a ROXBOX bar model ensures competitive pricing, expedited project timelines, reduced architectural and engineering collaboration, and prompt delivery for your project. Therefore, if you choose this project pathway you can expect a 2 to 4-month delivery timeframe (timeframe variability dependent on the optional add-ons and upgrades you choose + time needed for code compliance, permitting, & inspections for permanent projects).

Custom Project: Choosing the custom pathway for your bar adds significant time to a project. Therefore, similar to the cost question above, it is challenging to estimate the timeframe of a custom project until after we have a discussion about your concept/vision and dive into the details of the project. Many variables go into the timeframe of a custom bar project, including (but not limited to): design, size of container(s), number of containers, equipment requirements, mobile vs. permanent building classification, architecture & engineering requirements, code requirements, signage/branding, project location, etc. Therefore, if you are interested in a custom project, please fill out an inquiry form in the “Contact” tab in the menu above and we will be in touch shortly.

Shell Pathway: By choosing the shell pathway, ROXBOX simply provides the modified container(s) with doors, windows, framing, insulation under the floors, and exterior paint while your team and/or a local General Contactor finishes out the project on-site and completes all on-site inspections. Therefore, “shells” are our least expensive and fastest option but are also our most limited as far as scope. By choosing the shell pathway you can expect a 1 to 3-month delivery timeframe.

ROXBOX can deliver a shipping container bar anywhere in the world where a shipping container can be delivered. International deliveries will have increased cost & time functions, but we are happy to talk through the various options available if your project is located outside the United States.
