Although Isuzu’s aren’t typically outfitted to food trucks, it can be done! This truck will be the mobile unit of the Rolling Grind coffee truck. This video walk-through takes you on a guided vehicle before it’s been wrapped so the exterior will look different once this is complete. We hope this video gives you some great ideas of what can be done with an Isuzu!
As you can see on this Isuzu the kitchen area is not connected to the cab. On most food trucks these two areas are connected so keep that in mind if this is important to your business. On the outside you’ll notice a Powertech Generator is installed inside the protective box. Coffee machines, in particular require a lot of power to operate so this is not an area you should cut corners. Coffee machines, espresso makers, and blenders all require a lot of power. The last thing you want to happen during a rush is to have the power go out during a rush.
Inside the Isuzu Coffee Truck
After entering the truck, you’ll notice the wide-range of equipment already installed. On the left side of the kitchen is a bar with two Blendtec kichen blenders installed to make smoothies and other drinks. There’s also a commercial grade Bunn coffee grinder installed so beans are as fresh as possible. There is also a commercial grade espresso maker a refridgerator installed to keep everything cool.
Moving over to the right side of the kitchen there’s a six foot serving window installed to provide customers with their beverage of choice. Directly below, a 50-gallon water tank is installed. There is a large sink with cutting board and separate hand-sink. There is also a propane water heater, which is the only propane power used in the entire vehicle. Finally, there’s a broom closet installed where cleaning equipment can be installed. Overall, this Isuzu build turned out really nice and will serve the customer well for years to come.
