Airport vending kiosks have become the leading retail solution to meet the needs of passengers all over the country. All A Cart Manufactures every possible portable unit imaginable. Our units are intended to Increase overhead while maximizing the best use of the minimal space allowed within an airport. Since 2011, the rules and regulations have become strict, and security is top priority. This includes vending and retail establishments.
All A Cart has a finger on the pulse of the airline industry and has stepped up to the challenges that many vendors face. As many are phasing into self service vending machines, we believe there is a greater need for service related products. Services provided by a staff member will generate more revenue. Food and beverage carts, novelty items and airport vending kiosks that sell merchandise, novelty gifts, books and electronics far outsell vending machines. It is mainly because self serve machines can only carry a specific product limit. This puts a cap on the variety, options and goods that a vendor can offer to the passenger. Ultimately this results in minimal returns, regardless of whether or not the overhead is more affordable.
Our vending carts, kiosks and portable buildings can offer the airline passenger an exceptional retail experience while bringing the highest return to the vendor.
Rated A+ by the Better Business Bureau, All A Cart Manufacturing has set the standard in high quality manufacturing and mobile retail solutions. Providing custom airport vending kiosks, there is no form of portable unit, cart or concession stand that our team cannot create. We approach this industry differently than other tradional factory lines or overseas distributors. We collaborate and design each unit to meet the needs and wants of your business. Each vending product and vehicle is hand crafted and built in the United States- in Ohio.

All a Cart is a specialized manufacturer that offers custom products for other businesses, such as airport vending carts and kiosks.
When it comes to passenger services, we have the unique ability to custom fabricate any form of concession or sales unit. Passenger sales make up a large portion of overall sales within any airport. Since the rules and regulations have become more strict, sales of products have increased because passengers are unable to carry them through security. Basic items such as bottled water have become one of the largest areas of growth for many vendors across the country. In addition, the more traditional sales are still climbing, such as books , newspapers and magazines.
Airport vending carts and kiosks are a flourishing business because designated areas within the structure are often limited, therefore our mobile units offer flexibility. There is no need to invest in unnecessary construction or inspections, as our carts and kiosks come complete and ready for sales.
We can customize any and all sales units such as portable buildings, carts or stations to meet the needs of your products or services. There is nothing we cannot build, fabricate, generate or design.

There are often assumptions about what it is that we do (or don’t do). Specialty fields such as mobile vending can be clouded with a touch of mystery and even confusion, especially those new to the industry.
Here’s the thing- we are not your run-of-the-mill hot dog stand manufacturer and we do not just build custom food trucks. In between those two areas is a plentiful selection of mobile vending solutions, and we do it all. But it is important that you understand that we don’t slap together a pre-fabricated kit or unit. Our mechanical team is not there to screw seams together on a food truck or slap on a logo and call it a vending truck. This is likely what has set our business apart from the others and we take pride in that fact. All A Cart is an industry leader and we have taken that role and position very seriously.
Mobile distribution vehicles and portable buildings are designed and custom built by our experienced team and rolled out customized and tailored. Often our customers are left breathless because exceed expectations even after the very first consultation.
So here is the way that we see it. No two businesses or individually owned companies are exactly alike, right? Even if you sell similar products or services as your competitor, it is usually not done in the same exact way. Because it not performed in the same exact way, then you would require different tools and features. Are you following along? This is where we stand out and how we can launch your business higher than you ever thought. By adding or suggesting key elements and accessories, we are able to enhance your daily operation and delivery of services or products. These key suggestions could ultimately be the key to increasing your volume and overall profit. So, with all of that being said, why would you purchase a standard “cookie-cutter” food truck or portable vending cart? More than likely, it is because you did not know that you had any other options.
When it comes to designing and creating a vending solution that meets your needs, we take many factors into consideration. All A Cart will discuss your individual specifications, needs and special requests to come up with the best option and plan. It is important to us and we make a commitment to deliver nothing short of your vision.

Times sure have changed, especially when it comes to the job market. One of the biggest shifts is the current interpretation of chasing “the American Dream”. Somehow that phrase means something quite different than it used to mean a century ago. Nowadays many aspire for independence and financial freedom, abandoning their hopes for job security, advancement and a comfortable retirement.
Interestingly enough, those willing to take the risk by branching out on their own are succeeding in more ways than one. Naturally there were “booms” along the way, such as the technological industry. In certain niches like technology, the evolution of new and improved resources made it difficult for independent contractors to sustain themselves, let alone compete with large corporations. But there is one area that is climbing and rising to the top of the heap: Mobile Vending; more specifically Custom Food Trucks.
The options are literally endless as to what type of product or service you choose to sell out of a vending cart, truck, kiosk or concession trailer. Food, Beverages, Novelty Items, Ice Cream, and Merchandise are the most popular, but we are seeing an increase in new innovative vending.

In recent years the interest in hybrid vehicles and GEM cars has increased, right around the time that gas prices were on the rise. As a manufacturer who focuses on mobile vending solutions of every type, AllaCart began to work on these electric and hybrid motorcars for customers who showed an interest. However within the last year, we have seen their popularity double, almost triple- and it’s an exciting change!
Since the early 1970’s, AllaCart has been manufacturing and designing all types of mobile vending devices and vehicles, such as:
The environmentally favorable method by which this mighty machine is propelled is what attracts many buyers to this type of mobile unit. This zero emission motorcar meets and exceeds federal guidelines allowing it to be permissible on the street. Many customers will ask if we sell “street legal” GEM cars, and our answer is YES! We build, modify and custom fabricate food carts and trucks- but our newest line of hybrid and GEM cars perform exceptionally for:
It takes approximately 6-8 full hours to completely charge up. Once driven, you will get approximately 35-40 miles. If it is on need of some more power, it can be plugged in anywhere, at any time and will charge with ease. These make for fantastic street vending vehicles because often a vendor will take a short trip and stay stationary for the course of the day, at which time it can be re-charged back up. We also offer a hybrid vehicle if you are in need of more mileage than this currently offers.
As a top rated specialized manufacturer with over 40 years of experience, we have seen trends come and go- but we believe that this one is here to stay. As the vending industry (as a whole) has evolved in many ways, especially over the last 15 years- it is possible that this type of mobile unit may phase out the older models over the course of time. . Fortunately, as a forward thinking company- we have evolved with the technological advances and are able to deliver you modifications, upgrades and accessories specific to your needs.

More recently, we were proud to manufacture a special vehicle intended to be used as a form of public service. A local library has taken their reading materials and hit the streets- in an electric vehicle we built for them. This new and improved approach to distributing valuable resources has brought a community together in a whole new way.
Some of our food, beverage and merchandise vending vehicles:
Adding to the already extensive line of vending carts and trucks, AllaCart Manufacturing is excited to present the all new electric book mobile. The Grandview Heights Public Library has recently unveiled their very own compact vehicle, manufactured by Allacart, and the residents LOVE it!
The library system has efficiently and effectively found an inventive approach to circulation of their reading material. Their slogan “slow down and read” is saturating the town while generating excitement. This electric vehicle has been specially designed by AllaCart to transport library books and resources to the neighboring areas -as well as additional services from staff members. Visitors will have the ability to browse current reading materials, obtain a new library card and learn about current events and special resources being offered through the library.
This mobile library will maintain a regular schedule circulating throughout Grandview Heights and Marble Cliff- visiting places such as summer programs, schools, pool clubs and other local events. The interesting twist on this new delivery system is that materials will be replaced and changed according to the theme of the venue or targeted audience. This is a fantastic way to get the community together while also sharing public resources with them.
Since this low speed, energy efficient electric vehicle has rolled out, the response has been tremendous. Funding for this new mobile project has come from the Grandview Heights Public Library Foundation- which is a privately funded organization. Many residents have already started to plan a visit to this cool “POP-UP Library” as the buzz is quickly spreading through town.

This mobile unit plans to hit the streets every week day to deliver children a well balanced meal. It is understood that safety is an issue for many working parents, especially during the summer months. Many parents and guardians ask that their children stay close to home, which is why many are welcoming this new and improved delivery system. This food truck will allow the county to reach more children in need.
AllaCart Manufacturing proudly designed and fabricated this custom food truck on behalf of the department. This portable distribution vehicle features everything needed to safely and effectively deliver nourishment to local areas. As a reputable manufacturer for mobile vending businesses across the country, Allacart ensures that this vehicle will be built to last for many years to come. The graphic design features a strawberry and vines with children climbing to the top. This symbolizes how nourishment will assist the local children in reaching new heights.
Coordinator for the free-meal program, Kay Snyder, has shared that the truck will be visiting 2 different sites per day. These meals are available to children between the ages of 1 through 18. The beautiful part about this summer offering is that there will not be a requirement for the recipient to prove financial need, income or proof of ID.
Food options and meals will include wraps, serving of vegetables, fruit and milk. Local products and produce will be used on the truck whenever possible.
The assistant director of the Columbus Parks and Recreation Department, Terri Leist, has said that this meal truck is intended to supplement the 275 meal sites offered throughout the County of Franklin. This includes, but not limited to: summer schools, centers of recreation and many local nonprofit organizations.
A milestone was hit on June 15th, when the staff members assembled over 25,000 meals. This unbelievable program has a price reaching upwards of 1.8 million; however funding is reimbursed by the Unites States Department of Agriculture.

When we fail to prepare a meal, the days of hitting the drive-through are diminishing as many are walking up to a Food –Beverage Truck window. Mobile vending is taking over the modern day convenience store, one day at a time. However, what is interesting is not the fact that many of us long for a delicious morsel or drink from one of these vendors, but what Americans are buying from them.
Here are some of the most popular food-beverage truck items we are seeing trending all across the US (in no particular order).
• -Short Rib Taco
• -Sirloin topped with egg
• -Deli sandwiches
• -Fried combinations on rolls
• -Soy BLT
• -Lobster rolls
• -Gourmet hotdogs
• -Specialty grilled cheese
• -Egg rolls
As you can clearly see, the days of ordering a burger with a large fry is quickly becoming a distant memory. As technology advances and many Americans take inventory of their health- these two things collide and meet at the food-beverage truck. In addition, ethnic blends are moving outside of the major cities and greeting suburbia. These hybrid meals offer a sampling of tastes from all over the country with minimal cost and commitment.
If you have not taken the time to sample a specialty food or beverage from a mobile vendor, you must make it your goal to do so. However, if you have the mind of an entrepreneur and have the dedication and drive that it takes to start your own business with food carts or trucks, we want to hear from you!

Take for example- our holidays. Years ago it would be unheard of to think of a family “buying take out” for the Thanksgiving meal. However in the present time, many restaurants are filled and several homes are reheating prepared foods and placing them on decorative platters. Why is this? Frankly, we have scheduled so many things in our daily lives that there just is not the time to spend cooking, preparing and serving. This quick solution has spilled over into many other facets of life.
What does the future hold?
As we see grocery stores deliver, restaurants with curb side pickups and pharmacies selling food, it is hard to not notice the change taking place all around us. The question is- are you ready to maximize financially from this trend? Depending on the area, the following vending solutions could change your life drastically.

-In the United States, an average of 350 slices are eaten a second

There are many different available vending businesses to choose from for those interested in this industry. For some this is a lifelong dream to start out on their own and for others, this could be the retirement phase of life .The bottom line is that you are drawn to this type of service and want to learn more.
This article discusses those interested in one of the largest take-out businesses in the United States: pizza. It is estimated that approximately 10% of the total food sales in the US are pizza sales and although restaurants are in every town, very few have convenient mobile vending trucks or carts.
Should You Start a Pizza Truck Business?
Step One: Self Evaluation
Look at your current financial situation and determine whether or not you can afford to start a new business. It takes approximately one year to establish and root a new company. Evaluating your financial records will help you to establish a budget to get started.
Step Two: Shop for Food Carts and Trucks
Identify the pizza truck that you would feel financially and physically comfortable in. Designing one from scratch or modifying an existing truck may be more affordable than you thought. If locating a food truck for sale is outside of your budget, consider a custom vending cart.
Step Three: Identify Township and State Regulations
Establish what town you plan on selling your pizza out of. Contact local and state authorities to find out what kind of restrictions, regulations and paperwork is associated with it. In some cases paperwork can take time to file and get approved, so this is a step that should not be skipped.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What kind of equipment do I need?
Discuss your plan with a qualified and reputable mobile vending manufacturer to establish a list of what you may need. Many of these trucks come with standard heating elements, counter sales, display features and hot and cold storage, but you want to be sure you have everything that you need before getting started. Do not skimp on features such as pantry space, electrical sources, and generator back up, as these are a large part of the business. Depending on the climate, discuss the environmental needs in your sales territory. For example if you live in a predominantly hot state, you may require additional shade and ventilation for your customers and employees.
Where can you buy a food truck equipped to sell pizza?
Selecting a mobile vending vehicle that is the right fit for you is essential. Referring back to the first step mentioned above, your established budget is large factor in determining what you can afford to buy. To discuss your need and wants with a qualified manufacturer, click on this link. You have the ability to specify exactly what it is you need and in return get a quote for what it will cost- with a simple push of the button.
Who can do graphics on the pizza truck?
In many cases, you can get the entire food truck equipped with graphic designs from a company that specializes in this type of industry. It is generally more affordable to get everything that you need all in the same place at the same time. Take time to break down the costs individually and then together in order to assess the most affordable option. Keep in mind that your business name and information on the trucks is considered free future advertising. Bold graphics and vinyl wraps are literally giant billboards seen by thousands a day.
What is a food commissary and do I need it to sell pizza?
A food commissary is licensed food establishment that provides services to a MFDV (mobile food dispensing vehicle). This commissary provides services such as the appropriate disposable of waste, storage of food and supplies, obtaining potable water sources and cooking preparations necessary for sale. The intent of this commissary is to provide support to operators in order to deliver food in a safe and sanitary manner.

Between the demands of our personal and business lives, many people in the United States are short on time and looking to cut corners in any way possible. Because obligations generally can not be overlooked, modern shopping conveniences such as food sales at local pharmacies have been on the rise. In more recent years, the influx of sales via Custom Vending Kiosks have gone up drastically.
The truth is, we are all in need of modern conveniences and in some cases we will overpay for the luxury of time. Vending machines used to be the “go to” source for those in a hurry, however many Americans no longer carry cash and rely solely on debit cards for transactions. This fall of vending machines gave way to the increase in food kiosks for sale and generated a new age modern convenience in many cities across the US.
A custom vending kiosk has the ability to merchandise a much broader range of products and services including, but limited to:
Because the economy has gone through significant changes since 2009, many patrons prefer to purchase one or two items at a modern convenience station versus waiting to do a large shopping order. The increase of sales through this type of vendor has increased by double compared to years in the past. This is a trending business model that seems to be gaining momentum in all types of cities and areas.
It is a terrific time to invest in the income generating convenience vending business for financial reasons, but what about personal ones? For many Americans, the dream of owning their own company and becoming their own boss is just a daydream, until now. The investment required to start up a custom vending kiosk versus a standard store is considerably less and comes with much less risk.

You have made the decision to go into the mobile vending business and you have been browsing food trucks for sale…now what?
Congratulations on your first step toward becoming your own boss and exploring the world street vending! We are one of the nation’s leading manufacturers of vending mobiles for sale and know that the process to “get started” can be a tad overwhelming. Here we list some food for thought and offer helpful tips to point you in the right direction.
5 Tips before buying a food truck for sale:
Try not to focus on current food trends or fads, as they typically do not stand the test of time. Instead, offer a medley of choices that all surround your particular specialty food.
It’s very tempting to place yourself in the same category as the food trucks for sale, but we discourage you from this. Even if you are purchasing an existing truck, you must establish and develop new recipes and build a solid menu.
Once the menu has been completed, now compose a make shift list of the ingredients that would be needed to prepare those items. Do you have too many? Will they spoil if they are not used in a timely fashion? Take this time to polish your menu selection and add or delete as necessary.
Contact a wholesaler that is in the business of distributing the food products that you need and get price quotes. Create an expense sheet and evaluate your menu once again to see if there is any way to cut costs without cutting taste and appeal. Do not choose the cheapest grade foods to save money; simply remove an ingredient or two during the start up phase (only if necessary).
Based on your chosen menu, you may now get to select the best food truck for sale that would suit your needs. As you may have already learned, each vending vehicle has a unique layout filled with personalized accessories.
We always recommend that you begin with a custom build because you would have control of the layout and personal branding. However, if the budget does not allow, you may be looking for already established food trucks for sale. In this instance, be sure to make a list of the features that each has and what you would need to add. Adaptation and upgrading an existing truck may cost more than a custom build, so be sure to do a price comparison before making your final decision.
Some of the custom fabrication that can be performed on food trucks for sale are:

Street and strip mall vending carts have been around for longer than most people may even realize. Throughout major cities such as Philly, NYC and Chicago, they are not only known but they are depended on for things such as lunch, the morning paper and novelty trinkets.
If this type of service is of interest to you, there are a few things you may need to know before you dive in. This lucrative and independent line of work can be a very rewarding career change, provided it is done with right.
Here are few things that you should consider before starting your own cart or food truck business:
Tip #1: Take a look at the need and location of a potential street marketing operation. You want to really make sure that you have ample access to foot traffic and easy accessibility for them. Major cities and industrial areas tend to lend the best return on investment, so start looking there.
Tip #2: Inquire locally and within your state to see what rules and regulations apply to street vending. Local ordinances change from town to town, so be certain to check with your township about things such as merchant and peddling licenses, advertising and location of cart.
Tip #3: Determine what you would like to sell. Rules and regulations are different based on the type of merchandise you are looking to dispense. Try to pigeon hole your business and not offer too much of a variety. Create a “niche” for yourself and then investigate whether or not you can open your own station with it.
Tip #4: Apply for and follow up with all necessary permits required to start your business. In some cases, this is not a terribly difficult thing to do, but it could be time consuming. If you wait until the last minute, you may not be fully operational until you receive the appropriate paperwork.
Tip #5: Contact wholesale merchants and distributors to get price sheets and establish an account. When you are ready to start your business, this will be one less thing that you will have to worry about. If you are close to operational, then order a larger shipment for your first order. This will aid in determining how often you will need to re-order without the fear of running out of anything.
Tip #6: Gather and price promotional gear and order “grand opening” flyers for local business distribution. Offer free samples if you are able. Promoting your business may cost money in the beginning, but with enough elbow grease and the right work ethic, it will come back to you three-fold.
Creating a custom food and beverage cart can be overwhelming for those who attempt to do it themselves. Presentation and ease of operation are only a few of the things that need to be considered when building a work station. Visit our gallery to view our extensive line of merchandise and beverage carts, trikes and food trucks.
Food Trucks and Carts have been popping up all over the country, but which are ranking among the best?
From quick and common meals such as grilled cheeses and chicken wings to tacos and even fresh lobster bites, mobile vending stations are turning out some of the most inventive fusion foods on the planet.
Although from the outside these mobile food stations appear to be less complicated than a traditional restaurant, working a successful one is no simple task. While the cost to do business as compared to that of a conventional brick-and-mortar business is considerably lower, operators must obey local ordinances, work with mother nature and in many cases compete with traditional fast food establishments. Standing “out” is essential and that’s what the majority of these top rated vending food trucks have managed to do.
Some of the more popular hot spots have been listed below, as per the combination of tweets, fans, online opinions/ ratings as well as the number of visitors per year. Because food carts are also a large part of the industry, this list contains only the best of those with 4 wheels; not including trikes or towable carts.
Red Hook Lobster Pound – NYC
This has a plethora of seafood indulgences to offer and has left many satisfied customers hungry for more. You can find many types of shrimp salads and rolls, a lobster BLT, bisque and even delicious corn chowder.
The Grilled Cheese Truck- LA
The chefs profess that all of their food is “made with love”. They offer no fewer than 6-8 melts with combinations not seen in any traditional setting. Combining the amazing sandwiches with 21 sweet and savory additions, these meals can satisfy every possible taste bud and craving.
Wafels and Dinges- NYC
This dessert truck was established by Thomas DeGeeset after quitting his job at IBM back in 2007. Despite the economical changes many working Americans have suffered through, Wafels and Dinges has continued to grow, rising up through the ashes. Offering tasty combos of dough and your choice of sides, it is a celebration of goodness in your mouth. His unique and every changing sauces and toppings keep patrons coming back for more.
Korilla BBQ – NYC
This is a very interesting medley of Korean and Mexican cuisine wrapped up in one. They present foods in 3 forms: tacos, burrito or bowl. These oddly named creations cannot be described in words, but the customers leave happy and wanting more.
Sam’s Chowder Mobile (San Francisco)
This soup kitchen on wheels has gained much attention after being showcased on the show “Eat Street”. The menu features fried delicacies from the sea such as calamari, old bay fries with fish and chips and a fan favorite lobster roll.
These are merely a few examples of some of the highest rated customer reviews and overall media hype. Towns across America cherish and patron their own best kept secret in mobile food and beverage establishments. If you have a hidden talent or infamous recipe that you feel could “make it big” on the road, check out some of All A Cart’s custom portable kiosks and food/beverage vending buildings.
Clean: Wash hands and surfaces often According to food safety experts, bacteria can spread throughout the kitchen and get on to cutting boards, knives, sponges and counter tops. Here’s how to Fight BAC: Wash hands in hot soapy water before preparing food and after using the bathroom, changing diapers and handling pets. For best results, consumers should use warm water to moisten their hands and then apply soap and rub their hands together for 20 seconds before rinsing thoroughly. Wash cutting boards, knives, utensils and counter tops in hot soapy water after preparing each food item and before going on to the next one. Use plastic or other non-porous cutting boards. Cutting boards should be run through the dishwasher – or washed in hot soapy water – after use. Consider using paper towels to clean up kitchen surfaces. Or, if using cloth towels, consumers should wash them often in the hot cycle of the washing machine. Separate: Don’t cross-contaminate Cross-contamination is how bacteria spreads from one food product to another. This is especially true for raw meat, poultry and seafood. Experts caution to keep these foods and their juices away from ready-to-eat foods. Here’s how consumers can Fight BAC: Separate raw meat, poultry and seafood from other food in the grocery shopping cart. Store raw meat, poultry and seafood on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator so juices dont drip onto other foods. If possible, use one cutting board for raw meat products and another for salads and other foods which are ready to be eaten. Always wash cutting boards, knives and other utensils with hot soapy water after they come in contact with raw meat, poultry and seafood. Never place cooked food on a plate which previously held raw meat, poultry or seafood. Cook: Cook to proper temperatures Food safety experts agree that foods are properly cooked when they are heated for a long enough time and at a high enough temperature to kill the harmful bacteria that cause foodborne illness. The best way to Fight BAC is to: Use a meat thermometer, which measures the internal temperature of cooked meat and poultry, to make sure that the meat is cooked all the way through. Cook roasts and steaks to at least 145F. Whole poultry should be cooked to 180F for doneness. Cook ground meat, where bacteria can spread during grinding, to at least 160F. Information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) links eating undercooked, pink ground beef with a higher risk of illness. If a thermometer is not available, do not eat ground beef that is still pink inside. Cook eggs until the yolk and white are firm, not runny. Don’t use recipes in which eggs remain raw or only partially cooked. Cook fish until it is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. Make sure there are no cold spots in food (where bacteria can survive) when cooking in a microwave oven. For best results, cover food, stir and rotate for even cooking. If there is no turntable, rotate the dish by hand once or twice during cooking. Bring sauces, soups and gravy to a boil when reheating. Heat other leftovers thoroughly to 165F. Chill: Refrigerate promptly Food safety experts advise consumers to refrigerate foods quickly because cold temperatures keep most harmful bacteria from growing and multiplying. So, public health officials recommend setting the refrigerator at 40 F and the freezer unit at 0 F and occasionally checking these temperatures with an appliance thermometer. Then, Americans can Fight BAC by following these steps: Refrigerate or freeze perishables, prepared food and leftovers within two hours. Never defrost (or marinate) food on the kitchen counter. Use the refrigerator, cold running water or the microwave. Divide large amounts of leftovers into small, shallow containers for quick cooling in the refrigerator. With poultry and other stuffed meats, remove the stuffing and refrigerate it in a separate container. Don’t pack the refrigerator. Cool air must circulate to keep food safe. Foodborne Illnesses According to public health and food safety experts, each year millions of illnesses in this country can be traced to foodborne bacteria. While the likelihood of serious complications is unknown, the Food and Drug Administration estimates that two to three percent of all foodborne illnesses lead to secondary long-term illnesses. For example, certain strains of E.coli can cause kidney failure in young children and infants; Salmonella can lead to reactive arthritis and serious infections; Listeria can cause meningitis and stillbirths; and Campylobacter may be the most common precipitating factor for Guillain-Barre syndrome. Food Safety for… Meat, Poultry, and Seafood Lovers! We all know that meat, poultry, and seafood provide great sources of protein and other essential vitamins, but mishandling them may not be so healthful. Remember that all perishable foods, like meat, poultry, eggs, and seafood, need to be handled properly to prevent foodborne illness. Cook It Right Cook ground meat to at least 160 F. Ground poultry should be cooked to 165 F. Cook roasts and steaks to an internal temperature of at least 145 F for medium rare or to 160 F for medium. Whole poultry should be cooked to 180 F — measure the temperature in the thigh. Poultry breasts should be cooked to 170 F. Cook fish until it’s opaque and flakes easily with a fork. TIPS -Don’t forget to wash your hands with soap and warm water before and after preparing raw meat, poultry, and seafood. -Use a clean food thermometer to make sure raw meat and poultry have been cooked to a safe internal temperature. Wash the food thermometer in hot, soapy water between uses. Combating Cross-Contamination! S-e-p-a-r-a-t-i-n-g is Essential! To prevent raw juices from contaminating ready-to-eat foods, separate raw meat, poultry, and seafood from other foods in your grocery store shopping cart and in your refrigerator. Take 2 Consider using one cutting board for raw meat, poultry, and seafood products and another one for fresh fruits and vegetables. In addition, don’t forget to wash your hands with soap and warm water and your cutting boards, dishes, and utensils with hot, soapy water after they come in contact with raw meat, poultry, and seafood. Clean Your Plate Place cooked food on a clean platter. If you put cooked food on an unwashed platter that previously held raw meat, poultry, or seafood, bacteria from the raw food could contaminate the safely cooked food. Seal It Up To prevent juices from raw meat, poultry, or seafood from dripping onto other foods in your refrigerator, place these raw foods in sealed containers, plastic bags, or on a plate or tray. Then store them on the bottom shelf, so they don’t drip onto foods below them. Marinating Mandate Don’t use sauce that was used to marinate raw meat, poultry, or seafood on cooked foods, unless you boil it before applying. Never taste marinade or sauce that was used to marinate raw meat, poultry, or seafood unless it was heated to the boiling point first. FAQs Q: Should I wash raw meat, poultry or seafood before cooking it? A: Washing raw poultry, beef, pork, lamb, veal, or seafood before cooking is not necessary. Although washing these raw foods may get rid of some of the pathogens on the surface of these foods, it may allow the pathogens to spread around the kitchen. Cooking these foods to a safe internal temperature will destroy any bacteria that may be present in the food. Use a clean food thermometer to make sure food has reached the proper temperature. Q: If cooked meat and poultry look pink, does it mean that the food is not done? A: The color of cooked meat and poultry is not a sure sign of its degree of doneness. For instance, hamburgers and fresh pork can remain pink even after cooking to temperatures of 160 F or higher. Smoked poultry remains pink, no matter how cooked it is. Only by using a food thermometer can you accurately determine that meat and poultry have reached safe internal temperatures. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does not recommend eating undercooked or raw meat, poultry, and seafood as these can be associated with a higher risk of foodborne illness. Q: Is it safe to eat sushi, the Japanese raw fish specialty? A: People in the at-risk groups (young children, pregnant women, senior citizens, and people with weakened immune systems) should not eat raw or undercooked fish or shellfish. People with liver disorders or weakened immune systems are especially at risk for getting sick. Foods made with raw fish are more likely to contain parasites or Vibrio species than foods made from cooked fish. Always cook fish until it’s opaque and flakes easily with a fork. Safe-Cooking Temperature Chart Beef/Pork Cook beef roasts and steaks to 145 F for medium rare or to 160 F for medium. Cook ground beef to at least 160 F. Cook raw sausages to 160 F. Reheat ready-to-eat sausages to 165 F. Cook pork roasts, chops, or ground patties to 160 F for medium, or 170 F for well done. Poultry Cook whole poultry to 180 F. Cook ground poultry to 165 F. Cook chicken breasts to 170 F. Cook stuffing to 165 F. Eggs Cook eggs until the yolks and whites are firm. Don’t use recipes in which eggs remain raw or only partially cooked. Fish Cook fish until it’s opaque and flakes easily with a fork. Avoid eating raw oysters or raw shellfish. People with liver disorders or weakened immune systems are especially at risk for getting sick. Leftovers When reheating leftovers, heat them thoroughly to at least 165 F.

Each ALL A CART unit is custom designed and fabricated to your particular needs and specifications. Following is a description and instruction manual of various component parts and systems. Your individual unit may vary somewhat from those described herin. Should questions arise requiring further explanation, please contact the ALL A CART factory or your local ALL A CART representative.
EXTERIOR PANEL AND FRAME CONSTRUCTION:
The counter-top, side, and floor panels are of all welded stainless steel construction, as well as the fame and undercarriage. These parts are impervious to the elements and corrosion resistant. The entire unit may be cleaned and maintained with any number of cleaning solutions. If the surface is scratched, the scratch or blemish may be removed by vigorous rubbing with SCOTCHBRITE or other abrasive pads.
The sink system is a custom fabricated unit, which consists of a portable water tank above, and a wash basin below which can accommodate additional compartment pans with drains. It also holds waste water, or can be drained into an auxiliary waste tank by opening the drain valve below the wash basin.
Removing the cap from the filler neck and filling until full fills the portable or fresh water tank. This tank has a small weep hole under the counter-top, out of view, which acts as a vent for air to escape as the tank is being filled. Do not be alarmed if you detect a small amount of water under the sink that may have overflowed from this vent hole during transport or filling procedure.
To winterize the sink, open faucet valve and drain contents of fresh water tank completely. Then, loosen left and right connections behind each faucet handle to drain water from each faucet valve assembly. This will ensure the trapped water does not freeze within and possibly crack valve assemblies. Warm water is supplied from the fresh water tank and is heated by the burner flame from the steam table.
A push handle is mounted at the end of the cart.
The under-counter refrigerator supplied is AC/DC/LP powered. It operates using a heat absorption system. It does not have an internal blower fan. Therefore, opening and closing of the door should be kept to a minimum, since cooling recovery time is dependent solely upon internal coils reducing temperature.
AC operation is accomplished by pulling the plug-in cord out through the front panel access door, switching unit to AC setting, and adjusting temperature knob to desired level.
DC or 12V-battery operation is not recommended direct from battery, as the high usage rate will quickly drain the battery. The DC power is designed for use with the refrigerator connected through a wiring harness to a motor vehicle charging system as it is at idle or in motion.
LP (propane) power is converted to by hooking up an LP tank, opening the valve, turning the AC and DC switches off and then pressing down on the start knob while pushing the RED igniter button. Heat can be felt rising from the area to the upper right of the control panel as the refrigerator begins operating on LP power. The exhaust from the refrigerator LP system is ventilated through an opening at the bottom rear of the steam table heating compartment. This opening should be unobstructed at all times. The refrigerator door is provided with a locking mechanism that should be used when transporting unit. The manufacturer has provided a complete operating and maintenance manual, which you will find inside the refrigerator along with warranty information.
The cart is equipped with an umbrella-mounting pole which is removed during shipping.
To install pole, remove both steam table and ice bin outer pans. Then insert aluminum umbrella mounting pole into mounting hole located on counter-top-between steam table and ice bin. After aligning bolt hole, insert long bolt through walls between steam table and ice bin, then thread on nut and tighten. Umbrella may then be fully opened up and inserted into mounting pole.
LP (PROPANE) TANK COMPARTMENT (Optional):
Within the cart, by opening the storage compartment door, you may gain access to the LP tank compartment. It is a separate compartment designed to house (1) 20# (5 gallon) tank.
The door of the compartment has a fastener and should be fastened at all times.
The floor of the compartment is perforated to allow the escape of propane gas fumes should the tank develop a leak or a tank not be properly connected.
The LP system is equipped with a regulator within the LP compartment that has a LEFT-HANDED THREAD. Please beware of the opposite-than-normal thread and remember to tighten to the LEFT (counter-clock-wise), and loosen to the RIGHT (clock-wise).
A full pan steam table is recessed within the counter-top. It is LP powered, and also supplies heat for the hot water in the sink. To light the steam table burner, with the outer liner pan in or out, while holding a flame to the pilot assembly, hold down on the red thermostat starter button until the pilot flame stays on by itself. You may then turn the thermostat knob to adjust the burner to the desired level.
There are 2 adjustments available on the burner mechanism:
The first is an air adjustment on the end of the burner closest to the control. The ideal flame is blue in color. A yellow flame indicates not enough oxygen. By loosening a setscrew, the outer sleeve-type mechanism can be slid around to open or close the air intake, thus adjusting the oxygen supply to the burner, and in turn, determining the quality of the flame.
The second is an adjustment to the orifice that controls the volume of gas that flows into the burner. It is a thimble-sized brass fitting which protrudes from the end of the control valve opposite the knob and enters the end of the tubular burner. By rotating this fitting with a properly sized open-end or spanner wrench, one can raise by loosening (counter-clock wise), or lower by tightening (clock-wise) the size of the burner flame.
The outer liner pan is meant to contain 1/2 – 2 of water, which when heated will in turn heat the inner pan(s). The outer pan should not run dry, as it may cause the pan to warp from excessive heat.
The inner pans used, can range from full size to 1/9th, or any combination thereof, and be covered with an assortment of flat, raised, dome, hinged, or roll-top covers.
Two (2) or Four (4) casters are provided for ease of mobility – 2 are rigid, 2 are swivel with brakes.
To activate the brakes, simply step on the lever when in the up position. Lift the lever to disengage. Should the wheels become damaged, they are quickly replaced with ALL A CART approved wheels.
The swivel and axle mechanism all contain bearings, which should be lubricated once every 6 months. Each axle and swivel is fitted with a grease fitting for ease of lubrication.
Artwork and graphics which are applied to the side and end panels of the cart are of vinyl composition. Care should be exercised when cleaning over and around these areas. Avoid contact with sharp or abrasive objects. If you wish to remove vinyl graphics, this may be accomplished by heating the vinyl with a heat gun or hair dryer, and carefully peeling away the vinyl.
