The new employee / visitor service and seating area were the driving force behind this project. Taking the “cafeteria” and changing it into a place where employees and visitors could relax and have a wide selection of meal options was achieved by moving the entire operation into a newly constructed space.
The overall objective for the Main Kitchen was to streamline the flow of food product through production and service. Enlarging the main kitchen included: equipment replacement, new tray make-up system, and condensing aged multiple walk in cooler / freezers and storage with new.
