The Wonderful World of Restaurant Depots

Being in the restaurant equipment business for over a decade, One Fat Frog Restaurant Equipment has seen a lot of unique and innovative designs and themes for restaurants. There are video game bars, pirate-themed restaurants, and other approaches that help eateries stand out from the pack.

One criminally under appreciated style are the restaurants inside of old train depots. Restaurant depots are peppered throughout the country, offering patrons a unique and cozy dining experience. These restaurant depots commonly have dim lighting, wood and brick interiors, and the best ones are located inside authentically restored train depots.

In Beverly, MA, one of my favorite ocean-side towns in New England, there’s the Depot Restaurant & Saloon, located right on the Beverly stop on the commuter rail. It’s a great place for a few beers while you’re waiting for the train to Boston.

Right here in Orlando the historic Church St. Station has seen restaurants come and go. Most recently the new owners opened a New Orleans-style MoJo Bar and Grill at the depot.

There’s also the Train Depot Restaurant in Oregon, the Train Depot in California, the D&R Depot Restaurant in LeRoy, New York, and loads of others around the country.

The great thing about depot restaurants is that while there are many in the U.S., the market isn’t over-saturated with them. If you’ve been thinking about opening up your own restaurant depot or train station restaurant, head into One Fat Frog Restaurant Equipment in Orlando and let us put you on the fast track (or, fast rail in this case).

One Fat Frog also accepts quick cash deals towards any piece of used restaurant equipment for a depot restaurant. Paying in cash means you’ll still get all of the same complimentary services as if you paid through financing or credit, but you’ll also save a ton on top.

Every piece of equipment for restaurant depots comes with a 30 day parts and labor warranty. Our staff of specialized, certified, in-house technicians comb over every inch of the equipment before it goes out. Everything will be looking and running like new by the time it arrives at the depot!
