Pantry Cabinet Installation

I have a Pantry cabinet to install in my kitchen and the way the cabinet was constructed I'm having difficulty attaching it to my wall. There are no areas on the cabinet that match up with a stud in my kitchen wall. Does anyone have any ideas? Thank you.

"the cabinet was constructed"

" There are no areas on the cabinet that match up with a stud on my kitchen wall."

What do you mean by the above?
Is this a full-height pantry that sits on the floor?

I edited the post above to be more clear. This is a tall full length pantry cabinet that does sit on the floor. It is in the corner of the room and has a spacer between it and wall it is next to it in order to allow the door to open all the way. Behind the cabinet, there is no stud to drill into. Not sure how to secure the cabinet to the wall. Thanks for any help.

Is the wall behind the cabinet drywall? You could cut open a section of drywall that the cabinet would conceal and install cross pieces from stud to stud.

Yes, the back it dry wall and I can cut it out and place a cross beam. This is a great tip. Thanks for you help!
