Dunkin’ – Mahoning West

Intro

Dunkin’ – Mahoning West

As part on an ongoing expansion effort, Phillips|Sekanick Architects, inc. was asked to convert an existing quick serve restaurant into a new prototype Dunkin’ facility.  Working closely with the Owner, our design team developed a plan to reconfigure the existing building to meet the needs of the Dunkin’ Brand.  Reworking the entire interior and exterior of the building, the building was successfully converted to the new design prototype.

Dunkin’ – Mahoning West

Challenge

The vacant shell of a former quick serve restaurant provided Dunkin’ with the perfect opportunity to expand operations in the Austintown area.  The building size and configuration did not meet the current Dunkin’ standards and the exterior required significant alterations to reshape the structure and to include the well known Dunkin’ elements. 

Solution

Working closely with Dunkin’ Brands and the franchisee, the building was altered to meet the service requirements of the franchise.  As small addition and extensive alterations to the exterior and interior provided the Owner with a building that exceeded Dunkin’ standards.

Intro

O’Charleys – Strongsville

Establishing a new brand is always a challenge.  Having a brand stand out amongst the many competing options and opportunities is just as challenging. O’Charley’s, a relaxed, fast casual restaurant and bar operated by Covelli Enterprises decided to expand to the Cleveland market.  Understanding the need to create a new look with an updated image, Phillips|Sekanick Architects coordinated efforts to develop a new experience for both repeat clients and first time diners.

O’Charley’s Strongsville

Challenge

The O’Charley’s brand has been around for a number of years, yet its market reach has been somewhat limited in the fast casual market.  With the decision to expand to the Cleveland market, Phillips|Sekanick Architects was approached to develop a new image to that would elevate the brand and create a space that was inviting and which would stand out in the marketplace.

Solution

Choosing to move away from a more traditional look, the new design incorporated a mixture of materials, finishes and textures.  Focusing on the introduction of O’Charley’s to the client, a new, crisp, color palette was selected to highlight the entry way, while providing a clean, uniform around the remainder of the perimeter.
