Our dish room needed to be replaced. We sought the help of Bakergroup, who we worked closely with to design a state-of-the-art facility. We have more than doubled our capacity…increased staff efficiency….and significantly reduced our energy use. This project turned out just as we had hoped.

Bakergroup took our 60s-era cafeteria and knocked it out of the park with their redesign! It instantly went from a place no one wanted to be to a place where everyone now wants to be! Hats off to the entire Bakergroup staff!
