From Detroit style pizza to corned beef sandwiches, Detroit has its fair share of culinary innovations – and the ingenuity doesn’t stop with the food they put on the plate. Detroit is also home to the notable shipping container restaurant The Restaurant Collective & Beer Hall.

The two level building is constructed out of 21 refurbished containers – a sustainable and cost effective solution for standing up a restaurant quickly. The creators of the 10,000 square foot structure said that they wanted to create something that represented the city of Detroit itself – well traveled but given new life.

Using a storage container like the reusable ones we sell at Rent-A-Container is a great way to cut down on the waste of constructing a new building. Will you open the next sustainable shipping container restaurant in D-Town?
