JOYOUS JOURNEY

There was a time when traveling was an elegant and memorable experience.

A time when you would kick back and relax and forget about your destination -- and simply enjoy the journey ahead.

Dinner time did not consist of junk food, vending machines and snack bars.

Dinner was, simply put, dinner -- an experience you looked forward to having.

Special dining cars were beautifully decorated, furnished with what was (at the time) the most modern amenities.

And the food was incredible, rivaling any restaurant in the world.

Those days are long gone, but Mitchell Menaker wants to bring them back -- and deliver them right to your own neighborhood.

Menaker has spent more than 35 years bringing numerous themed entertainment retail and food and beverage concepts to life.

Entertainment-driven retail and dining centers and themed railroad projects will be the initial focus.

Menaker plans to place as many as 25 of these train dining cars in key strategic locations over the next 48-60 months.

Each train is one-of-a-kind and will vary in age, menu, history and appearance.

We also know the provenance for most of the railroad cars, providing another element to utilize to enhance the customer experience.


MAKING NEW MEMORIES

All Aboard Dining Cars will source vintage railroad carriages

By enlisting in the financial assistance of external investors and the incredible talents of skilled craftsmen, we will restore the exterior of the carriage to its original condition

All Aboard Dining Cars will then ship the dining cars to a variety of locations across the United States

Independent food entrepreneurs will then convert the insides of the carriages to create their own style of dining experience

Insome locations, repurposed sea containers will be converted for use as specialty retail, food and beverage and office venues

The dining cars and sea containers will be leased to entrepreneurs, with All Aboard Dining Cars retaining overall ownership of each dining car and sea container

By utilizing this model, All Aboard Dining Cars will receive rental payments without having the risks associated with operating a food business on a day-to-day basis

The Company business model is to initially enter into ground leases with landowners in order to minimize out of pocket cash needs. As the company moves forward with successful venues, it is the intent of the Company to whenever possible, purchase the land it will use to develop this concept. 


A WONDER
UNDER THE SEA

Sea containers provide a wonderful, sturdy and reliable opportunity for both retail and food entrepreneurs.

Sea containers are also much more cost-effective than building a traditional restaurant or retail venue from the ground up.

They provide a unique option to liven up the retail and dining experiences in virtually any location.

Their versatility is unmatched -- the venues retail and food entrepreneurs create will only be limited by their imagination.

PRESS MENTIONS

Our projects have been garnering some serious buzz from around the country.

“There is a lot going on in Sanford, and we want this to be a destination location,” Menaker said. “For the containers, we’re looking for unique food, art, a coffee shop, flowers or some other kind of unique retail concepts that would keep customers within the area.”
From the Orlando Sentinel

“Menaker Development and All Aboard Dining Cars plans to convert a restored historic railroad car into retail boutiques, galleries and food venues at the Santa Fe Railyard, according to a release. The project is scheduled to open in the summer.”
From Albuquerque Business First

The project has also been mentioned in the Albuquerque Journal Press and Sanford Sentinel.

We've also been featured on Orlando's Fox 35 News.
