The Vitamin Shoppe, Inc.

 

Client:

 

Olshan Properties                 Ken Enghauser, Director of Construction.

 

Project:

 

Convert a former Wendy's restaurant into a retail space for The Vitamin Shoppe.

 

Challenge:

 

The Vitamin Shoppe wanted the space renovated so as not to be easily identified as a former Wendy's.  They did not want the renovation and construction costs to be very high to keep their lease rate affordable.  The property had set vacant for a period of time, so there were also some overdue maintenance issues to deal with.

 

Solution:

 

The exterior where the drive thru had extended was redesigned to be flat and drive thru windows were sealed and covered with matching brick and stucco accents.

 

The interior was gutted and redesigned according to The Vitamin Shoppe specifications for it's equipment, merchandising displays, break room and employee accommodations.  The colors, materials, and finishes were all specified by The Vitamin Shoppe.

 

The parking lot was was repaved, resealed, and parking areas repainted.  The landscaping was redesigned and refreshed.
