Everyone loves Krispy Kreme donuts, they’re known nationally for their bright glowing sign that brings warmth to the heart of any gooey delicious loving customer. In 2010 Gardner/Fox helped bring the love to Philadelphia!
An old Popeye’s restaurant made the perfect home for the first Krispy Kreme! The renovation began with site work, including repaving the parking lot, installing fencing, installing signage, and landscaping the space. Next came the installation of an all-new aluminum roof, as well as storefronts, entrances, and fresh paint and siding.
The entire interior of the space was gutted and reformatted to Krispy Kreme specifications. The work included all new mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, floor and wall tile, drywall, and acoustical ceilings to create separate spaces for production, a prep kitchen, dining, and retail area. The final step was bringing in the magical production line that makes those legendary donuts!
The franchise has expanded since 2010 but if you stop by at the Fox Chase store, just remember, it was brought to you by Gardner/Fox!
