Outdoor Patios Made Out of Shipping Containers for a COVID-19 Winter

RoxBox Containers introduces a new and innovative way to ensure restaurants and events can operate through the pandemic winter with shipping container outdoor patios. 

Based in Denver, CO, RoxBox has been creating beautiful and innovative spaces out of shipping containers for years. Having worked with numerous food and beverage concepts with our other containerized solutions for kitchens and bars (including The BeerCan), we wanted to help our restaurateur and event friends with a better solution than Chinese-made plastic tents.

Per a recent 9News article & video:

In July, the Colorado Restaurant Association (CRA) asked 170 restaurants if they think they will still be open in six months. 65% said they were not sure.

“We’re extremely worried about what winter looks like,” CRA’s President and CEO Sonia Riggs said. “Some restaurants are going to do whatever they can to take advantage of that outdoor seating as long as possible, and others just say they don’t know whether it’s worth it or not.”

Let’s try and make sure more restaurant shutdowns don’t happen here in Colorado!

Introducing the PatioBox:

PatioBox comes in 4 different models with numerous upgrade options like roof-top decks:

  • X-Large  – 2×40’HC double-door containers modified & combined to create maximum space with multiple openings, lights + electrical, heaters, and 3 glass roll-up doors
  • Large – 2×40’HC containers combined w/ openings, lights + electrical, and heaters
  • Medium – 1×40’HC double-door container w/ lights + electrical and heaters
  • Small – 1×20’HC container w/ two openings, lights + electrical and heaters
Custom units and configurations available upon request

PatioBox allows for a heated and rad space with circulation to allow for continued revenue through the winter even with COVID-19 restrictions. By adhering to CDPHE guidelines, we’ve created multiple different temporary outdoor patio models with heaters that will fit in innumerable spaces and allow for continued operation through winter – plus they look way cooler than a tent. These structures can ultimately be integrated into a more long-term development plan and have optional roof-top decks. 

We also have other Food & Beverage shipping container units to combat COVID-19 barriers:

  • Bars
  • Kitchens
  • Pick-Up/Delivery Kiosks

Certain PatioBox models are available for rent/lease and we also offer financing for those interested in purchasing. For a limited time, we will be supporting local organizations by offering discounts/ lowering prices – the struggle is real and we’re trying to help. 

Unfortunately, there will only be a limited number of PatioBox units available. 

Winter is coming…
