MOVE Systems is a veteran-run company that creates a turnkey, high-tech, sustainable mobile food cart platform for chain and independent restaurant concepts. MOVE has helped brands like Dunkin’, Nathan’s Famous, and others have a cost-efficient, mobile presence to reach customers in locations beyond the limits of their brick-and-mortar stores.
MOVE has successfully helped brands create carts to test new products and concepts, engage customers before a grand opening and at special events, and drive additional revenue during construction, remodels, and peak times. Beyond the cart, MOVE provides an entire platform of product, process, and data services, enabling a capital-efficient expansion of current brick-and-mortar operations.
At the core of our mission, MOVE Systems is continually seeking ways to reduce emissions by eliminating the need for idling gasoline generators and engines. Our solutions focus on providing the energy necessary for urban living while not sacrificing the air that we breathe. In conjunction with Allcot Group, MOVE has developed a carbon credit program to help combat the global impacts of greenhouse gas emissions. We also work with local non-profit environmental organizations, Energy Vision and Empire Clean Cities, to foster cooperation and sustainable initiatives in our community.
Built in America
We are proudly Built in America. We believe in returning manufacturing to the heartland, and for us that is Walker, Michigan! By combining innovative, energy efficient technology with advanced manufacturing processes, we are reinvigorating the community by promoting professional development at the grassroots. As part of our effort to invigorate manufacturing in America, we are also proud to host the local public high school system Kenowa Hills’ innovative Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) program at our production facility -- the only public/private program of its kind in the state of Michigan.
At MOVE, we are powered by veterans seeking to support veterans. We are honored to hire and retrain US Armed Forces Veterans as part of our mission and vision for the organization. We take pride in identifying and onboarding veteran businesses and work with organizations that relate to our values such as First Data Salutes and supporting the nonprofit Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.
