Unique Pizza and Subs Corporation, in cooperation with the online restaurant commissary The Virtual Warehouse Inc. (VRTW), researched numerous mobile kitchen manufacturers before deciding to team with All A Cart Manufacturing Inc. of Columbus, Ohio. VRTW contracted with All A Cart on July 11, 2008, to produce 30 18- foot step van mobile kitchens. Each unit was custom designed by James C. Vowler, president and CEO of UPZS, and Rick Proctor of All A Cart. Mr. Jim Vowler believes, “These units will expedite the growth of the UPZS franchising efforts and customer service.”

Morris, president of All A Cart Manufacturing Inc., “We are proud to announce a strategic alliance with The Virtual Warehouse Inc. which is the commissary for Unique Pizza and Subs Corp.
