This will be questionable. You would have to look into city regulations to see if they will allow modification for a commercial product. A lot of times they will. We just opened a brewery our town and we were able to get our cold room which is 15 ' x 6' build from scratch instead of paying crazy money for a pre-fabricated one.

That would be a question better suited to your local health department. They will the entity to regulate. Their concern will be ease of cleaning and proper holding temp.

But, what you need to consider is the cost savings over building a keezer that will get beat to hell as opposed to buying one built to withstand abuses.

Assuming you will be serving from half barrel kegs, a consumer grade freezer is not built to withstand the abuse of having those "dropped in" routinely.
