Project Spotlight: Restaurant to Food Trucks

APEX Specialty Vehicles partnered with Bado’s Pizza Grille and Ale House to expand upon their existing restaurant/bar and catering business. The Mt. Lebanon, Pennsylvania-based restaurant custom-built a pizza and griller truck that travels around the area attending festivals, events, and broadening the catering reach.


APEX worked directly with Bado’s team to design and engineer the 22-ft step van with the most effective and productive layout that resembles their restaurantexperience. The high-end mobile kitchen is equipped with the following:

– (2) A/C Units (25 amps)
– 12kW Cummins Generator
– Bakers Pride Single Deck Pizza
– True Pizza Prep Refrigerator
– Exhaust Hood, Range Oven
– Refrigeration System
– Multiple Work Tables for Increased Productivity
– Solwave Commercial-Grade Microwave
– Triple Sinks, Fire Suppression System

The extension of the brick and mortar with this custom pizza and griller food truck has allowed Bado’s to expand their footprint and business throughout the community. From catering to community events, the branded food truck is equipped and ready to serve quality food!
