Financial Factors

The CamKiosk® costs about half the cost of other carts - helping you to generate profits more quickly. In fact, the Cambro's CamKiosk could payback in only one or two months of operation. Made of durable polyethylene, the carts are lightweight and won't dent, crack, bubble, chip or break. They are easy to clean-just wipe them off. The CamKiosk holds a surprising amount of food. With special thick foam insulation, food temperatures are maintained.
