We did this Fast Food Restaurant ( Panda Express style) renovation project in Glendale, CA. couple of months before the pandemic happened ( Such bad timing for the owner). But they were fortunate enough to do
to-go orders in LA County.
I just had to mention this project; the owner was awesome. He often gave me free lunch whenever I stop by to say hi if I am in the area. It was very nice of him, and the food is fantastic ( Wongs Wok). This project was my third restaurant project. It makes me panic when a project has to do with a commercial kitchen. Just so many signed off on job cards.
I have attached two comparison pictures ( Interior design / Actual completion). Let me know your thoughts! We tried to get the actual completion as close as the interior design plan.
The whole built out took a bit longer than usual. We anticipated the project being completed in 2.5 months for the construction. But it turned out the architecture made a mistake in drawing the plans ( Wrong location for the Grease trap). So we had to wait for city planning/building and safety for approval, of course, before we did the excavation and put it in the grease trap. So it took four months in the end.
