It’s not just Budget Shipping Containers customers’ who’ve enjoyed mouth watering deals this year, we ourselves have had a taste of mouth watering all american food after supplying and delivering a brand new 20ft shipping container to TGI Fridays! Being used simply as a little extra storage space this 20ft one trip shipping container looks very smart indeed at their Cheshire Oaks site.
The TGI Fridays chain is now pretty much a household name. Opening in 1965 New York they’ve came a long way and now have over 900 locations worldwide! Their popular American cuisine and cocktail juggling staff make the whole dining experience very enjoyable.
This particular branch was located at the Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet, Ellesmere Port – somewhere we’ve delivered containers before for our friends at Wagamama (just across the business park) – click here to see the container Wagamama took from us.
Going to be on show around the back of TGI Fridays, a shipping container with a smart exterior was more desirable than a used one in its original shipping line colours or liveries. The company we were in direct contact with was Dawnvale, a kitchen hospitality specialist who look after a number of TGI Fridays restaurants. After liaising with Barrie at Dawnvale we decided a used container (in its original shipping line liveries), although structurally sound and wind and water tight, would be a little too rustic for TGI’s and, wanting their choice of colour, was never going to work.
Barrie and the TGI Fridays team took a new 20ft one trip shipping container in blue RAL5010. Although we can repaint any shipping container externally in your choice of colour, our new range of containers come in blue or green as standard and have no large shipping line liveries on the side. So 3ft high letters saying “china shipping” is not an issue with our new build one trips. They are as new as new can be in the UK with only minor dinks or dents from their first trip in from China. Very nice units indeed and the one at TGI Fridays was no exception.
Shipping Containers are becoming a popular option for business parks with a especially with all the adjustments and modifications we can do. Extra workspace, additional rooms or as a solution to storage problems. They suit pretty much anyone anywhere – and operating nationwide we’d like to think we can too!
