Forget idle hands being the devil’s workshop. When fiery chef Gordon Ramsay returns to the small screen on June 13 with a new show, 24 Hours to Hell and Back, his “workshop” is truly going to be Hell on Wheels. Or, to be more specific, it’s a 70-foot-long semi-truck called Hell on Wheels that unfolds into a state-of-the-art, self-sustaining mobile kitchen.
Ramsay is known for his hellish treatment of other chefs and restaurant owners alike, with shows like Kitchen Nightmares and Hell’s Kitchen, and this new series is no different. In 24 Hours to Hell and Back, the Michelin star chef extraordinaire will travel the country looking for restaurants on the brink of flaming destruction, only to whip their staff into shape and develop a new full menu — all with only 24 hours to do it in. The ticking clock is not their friend.
The Birth of Hell on Wheels, AKA MAXimus
It truly was a match made in “hell.” When Ramsay and his team set out to find the perfect kitchen set-up suitable for a chef of this caliber and TV worthy, they turned to Innovative Group for help. The show aimed to be presented in Ramsay’s typical style — heated, intense, nitty-gritty, and fast-paced — all while taking on the biggest restaurant transformation challenges to date.
When faced with the incredibly high standards of one of the culinary world’s most acclaimed (and colorfully demanding) chefs, Innovative Group’s team of solutionists™ knew they had the perfect solution to wow both Ramsay and his audience. After all, not just any pop-up kitchen would do.
Enter Innovative Group’s crowning mobile asset, MAXimus, as Hell on Wheels.
