July 6, 2017

Scot Byrd took his wife, Millie, to the Mall of Louisiana to get her official response to the food at Crispy Catch!  (She loves fish, hushpuppies, & fries).  The verdict is in.....  WOO-HOO!!!  Really good!  


June 30th was the "Covfefe Cookout".  Covfefe means "secret festival".  Fefe from the Cajun word for festival and Cov from covert.   Everyone in the QUAD ONE PLAZA had a great time.  


The BBI Architects' staff joined our neighbors from Covalent Logic, Funderburk & Butler Law Firm, Cassidy Turley Real Estate and ATB Services - as well as a few friends of the firm.  What a great way to kick off the Independence Day weekend!


CRISPY CATCH - Coming Soon!

March 28, 2017

The Mall of Louisiana will soon enjoy a new culinary treat!  This thin fried catfish is so delicious, other restaurants are going to be complaining how the Crispy Catch is catching all the business!

The "Tackle Box" is our personal favorite!  But the fish tacos are fantastic, too!  I want to buy those boudin balls and "corn bobbers" by the box!


You can learn more about Crispy Catch by going to their website, here.


Retail Plaza with Rotolo's Restaurant

November 21, 2016

Working with the owner of Rotolo's has been a real pleasure!  Mitch Rotolo has been very successful in building an excellent chain of restaurants that bear his family's name.


In this particular case, Mitch has decided to build the entire plaza where his restaurant will be the centerpiece of the retail center!


This will be a uniquely attractive retail center located close to the LSU campus, where the Rotolo's story really began!  There is already a long list of potential tenants vying for the opportunity to house their business at this location in this great looking 17,000 SF retail center.

BBI Architects worked closely with Mitch Rotolo and his director of marketing, Christina Bourg in setting the stage for this new location.  This location will be a showcase of the newest ideas in taking the next step in the Rotolo's brand!


You can learn more about Rotolo's by going to their website, here.

Here a few pictures of a very successful regional chain in North Carolina we are proud to be working with!


A first class environment for a first class operator that specializes in traditional American fair, good old hot dogs and hamburgers, with some other other great items.  Everything Dairi-O serves is simply delicious!  The design of the building speaks for itself!

When "Restaurant design + development" magazine was looking for experts in restaurant design, it was no surprise that one of their choices was Brent Bueche, president of BBI Architects.  Here is a great article on how to design an excellent restaurant and keep in mind the needs of the mobility challenged.  Nice article by contributing editor Amanda Baltazar.


Shelley's Donuts

May 22, 2015

One of the most rewarding things in restaurant design is helping that entrepreneur with their very first location.  Balancing a professional appearance with a limited budget is very typical and a fun challenge!  The donuts are fabulous, Daniel!  Best of luck to you!!!
