If you are in the business of transporting food, such as catering, you know that food carrier boxes are among the most essential tools. Rugged and lightweight, carrier boxes are designed to transport food from your kitchen to the venue with ease so your staff can focus on providing world-class service, instead of wrestling with burdensome equipment.
There are a number of styles and features when it comes to carrier boxes, including front loaders and top loaders. Front loading food carrier boxes are often used heavily by catering businesses. This is because they are equipped with casters and wheels, making them portable and easy to transport. Many options that don’t have casters can be mounted on a dolly, allowing you to keep things moving. Many food carrier boxes can hold as many as 16 pans at a time, which means you can use a few of them to serve an entire party.
Cambro is a popular brand for insulated boxes. Their boxes are fitted with polyurethane insulation, which is a resilient material that is great for keeping food at or close to its original temperature for four hours or more. The way these top loader boxes are built make them a good choice for moving full-sizes pans and fractional pans.
Vollrath is another common brand for food carrier boxes. Their boxes are collapsible top loader EPP boxes. These boxes are made of durable, lightweight material that can maintain food and beverage temperatures for long periods.
Heated food carrier boxes are available too. Electric carrier boxes are power heated, allowing you to keep your food at the ideal temperature for an unlimited amount of time. The styles, designs, sizes and types of carrier boxes are endless.
