Hissho Sushi Test Kitchen

 ♦︎ Interior Upfit ♦︎ Charlotte, North Carolina ♦︎ 60,000 s.f. - Warehouse/ loading docks/test kichens ♦︎ 11,000 s.f. - New corporate office

In Phase 1 Most of the work was focused in the renovation of the front-of-house as their new corporate office. The client had an opportunity to purchase an old food processing/ distribution company. With some upgrading, most of the facility was move-in ready and met their needs for large-scale storage, frozen food distribution, and test kitchens. Some upgrades to restrooms and kitchens were necessary.

In Phase 2 the client wanted a new test kitchen, tasting room, and presentation area for guest and clients. They wanted separation between these areas while maintaining the opportunity to have them flow in to one another when needed and a modern and colorful theme.
