Time Square’s Snackbox: Lunch, Shipped Straight to You

People are constantly reinventing how things are made, designed, and done. You’ve probably already heard that the only constant thing in this world is change, so it probably won’t come as much of a surprise to you that even the places where you go to grab some food on the go have been redesigned.

Shipping Container Snackbox

Sure, you’re used to grabbing a burger, hotdog, or taco from a stand at the corner of the street.  But from a shipping container in the middle of New York’s Time Square?

This literal “snackbox” was brought to the Big Apple by Montreal-based firms Aedifica and Muvbox. It’s basically one of those shipping containers used to transport all sorts of stuff on huge ships and barges, only it’s been fixed up and converted into a tiny food vending station.

Shipping Container Snackbox

The 20-meter long snackbox was created for restauranteur Jonathan Morr, who’s selling iconic New York street food from an equally iconic canteen. The box itself is completely portable and is entirely self-sufficient: it gets its supply of water from a tank that’s embedded into its floor, while it’s powered by a hybrid energy system that combines electric batteries and a generator.
