STAGES OF A CAFE

We are completing the FRESH MARKET cafe’ in Tupelo, Ms this week.  I’m very excited about their opening.  We have gone through a lot to get there, but it has been a great experience.  We were given a building that, in any other circumstance, would be a tear down situation.  It was a mess!  A big one. It had been a fast food restaurant and ignored for a year or two after it closed.  I will tell you about the phases of this exciting but crazy project.  This first photo, if I can find it, is the way we found the building.

EXISTING BUILDING -a year ago.

This is actually showing the “good” side of the building.

We did reuse the structure.  Gutted the interior and started over.  So I suppose one would call this an adoptive reuse?  Maybe not.  But it is a very good “redo”.

I hope you enjoy the journey.
