When we first met with Parker’s Kitchen, a convenience store chain in Georgia and South Carolina, we discussed many ways in which Cuhaci Peterson could help them grow their program, but one that really resonated was CP’s understanding and awareness of scale. At the time, they were building a handful of stores per year and had the desire to build 20+ stores per year. CP began developing prototypes and introducing processes across the board, not just in drawings, but how we document and communicate all the moving pieces with the various partners at Parker’s Kitchens.
The goal being to structure this program to be consistent while avoiding big headaches as the program grew. We’ve been fortunate to have been engaged with a lot of large, national rollout work with other clients which aided us in this case. Along the way we have created a standard and small prototype. This has enabled Parker’s Kitchen to plan ahead, providing a new outlook on buying power and cost savings. For example, pricing steel packages or rooftop equipment for a year, instead of just a few projects. This provided Parker’s Kitchen a clear view of their projects from concept development to ground up.
