Charlotte has plenty of amazing restaurants and cafes, but not all of them were built the same way. With Boxman Studios using shipping containers to build affordable, sustainable stores and restaurants, it’s no surprise that there is a successful shipping container cafe in Charlotte. Burr & Berry is an independent drive thru and walk up coffee shop serving up all of the classics as well as their own caffeinated creations in LOSO.

Using a storage container like the ones we sell at Rent-A-Container is the perfect low cost, sustainable way to start out your culinary endeavor. Because they are reusable and cut down on the waste of constructing a new building, shipping containers are a great choice for local spots like Burr & Berry looking to strike a balance between cost and quality.

Did you know that Charlotte is home to an impressive 3,500 manufacturers? Located 200 miles inland from the Atlantic seaboard, it might come as a surprise that manufacturing employs almost 150,000 people in the area.

When all of those products – from automotive parts to plastics, advanced textile to biomedical supplies – need to be shipped out, containers are a huge part of the equation.

Office Space


Being the largest city in the state of North Carolina, Charlotte employs hundreds of thousands of office workers. But thanks to the rise in Charlotte’s digital nomad culture, those workers have more options than ever when it comes to their office space.

Whether they’re a work-from-home employee based in Charlotte or just stopping in for a month or two, shipping containers make a great solution for extra space. With Rent-A-Container’s custom container options, you can customize your future workplace exactly to your liking – like windows to soak up dazzling views of Lake Norman.
