National Restaurant Association Show, Visit Booth #2784--DTG, the leading provider of industrial-strength power systems and mobile workstation solutions, today launched a new generation of its popular mobile Chef PowerStation. The next-generation carts offer increased power and output capacity, as well as features and functionality that accommodate the needs of mobile food and beverage operations in hospitality markets, such as sports stadiums, clubs and resorts, and other event venues, where the ability to untether concessions from fixed locations can drive a better patron experience, reduce wait times and boost profitability.
DTG’s new generation of battery-powered mobile Chef PowerStations now feature increased power capacity leveraging new models of DTG’s Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) batteries, which offer advanced power to mobilize food and beverage operations for up to 18 hours. The new models also provide improved ergonomics for food preparation, and additional options for refrigeration, heating and storage.
“A new wave of challenges is forcing hospitality businesses such as restaurants, resorts and event venues to find new ways to reach more customers with innovative offerings,” said Steve Shaheen, DTG CEO and co-founder. “Our mobile hospitality workstations are helping businesses differentiate themselves and elevate their food and beverage services at a time when consumers are becoming more discerning with their discretionary food and entertainment spending and their time.”
DTG’s Chef PowerStations were recently featured at the Chef-to-Chef event, a premier conference by Club + Resort Chef, where some of the nation’s leading chefs used the new workstations in a variety of formats including a culinary competition in front of a live audience. According to Kevin Silk, Executive Chef, Savannah Yacht Club, “The DTG workstation was a great tool for the competition; it had plenty of power for the oven and my other electric appliances and had a lot of tabletop space for me to utilize for prep. I could definitely see my club using these for action stations during events or for cooking classes! I would recommend these carts to all of my colleagues.”
The Chef PowerStations have also been used to meet the food and beverage needs at Texas A&M football games at Kyle Field in College Station, Texas, a venue that seats more than 100,00 fans. In partnership with the Levy Group, the mobile workstations were employed to reduce customer wait times, increase profitability, and address critical staffing shortages.

The company brings workforce automation and unrivaled battery system power to the point of task. DTG is privately held and based in Wilmington, Mass.
