Could You Start Your Business Out Of A Shipping Crate?

When it comes to creative business locations, many business owners are taking it a step further and starting their businesses out of recycled shipping containers. Not only are these designs trendy – they’re environmentally friendly, too. For each recycled shipping container, around 3,500 kilograms of steel is being reused. However, not every type of business will be suited for using modified shipping containers as building to operate out of. Here are some of the types of businesses that have seen the most success with this unique form of construction.

Artist Studios

If you’re looking for a unique space to create in and display your artwork, a shipping container studio could be perfect for you. Shipping container studios have just enough space for you to work and display your favorite pieces, without you also having to pay for more square footage than is necessary. They can also be a great way to get more people in the door to check out your artwork, and maybe even sell a few extra pieces.

Restaurants And Cafes

With more and more people looking for unique and creative dining experiences, shipping crate restaurants and cafes have seen raving success as of late. Shipping containers can be used to create a variety of looks for your restaurant. Whether you’re looking to have a shipping crate restaurant that features industrial chic vibes or boho, small-town flavor, this could be a great option for you. The uniqueness of the structure will have future customers pouring in to check out the new restaurant on the block.

Pop Up Stores

Pop up stores are becoming popular among startups and other businesses on a budget. If you need a location to sell your products but aren’t wanting to pay rent on a full storefront, consider setting up a pop up shop in a shipping container. Pop up containers can also be fairly easily relocated, allowing you to market in a larger area.

Shipping containers are a great and trendy way to set up a wide variety of business locations. Depending on the industry you’re in, they might be the key to your next big success. For more information on modified shipping containers, contact IPME today.
