Creamistry Ice Cream – Buford, Georgia
Chandlee and Sons Construction Company contracted with Nivish LLC on February 19, 2018 for the build-out of a retail store in the Mall of Georgia development on Buford Drive (Georgia Highway 20). Mall of Georgia is a 41-acre, super-regional shopping mall in Gwinnett County. It is one of two-hundred-nine properties developed nation-wide by Simon Property Group, LP, whose headquarters are at 225 West Washington Street in Indianapolis, Indiana – their website is www.simon.com.
Custom Design and Development Corporation in Norcross is the architect for this commercial construction project, Creamistry – a fast growing liquid nitrogen ice cream franchise developed in California and now spreading across the United States. This Buford location is one of two located in Georgia, a second location is in Savannah.
Carey Hughes, a Senior Project Manager for Chandlee and Sons, is responsible for the construction of this restaurant project. The scope involved demolishing existing walls, flooring, ceilings and mechanicals. The crew sawed into the existing concrete to create a plumbing trench. We supplied and installed metal framing, insulation, sheetrock, acoustical ceiling tiles with grids, floor tile, wall tile and backsplash tile, quartz countertops, epoxy floor system and cove base, sneeze guards, a 5-ton HVAC unit and ducting, electrical lighting and wiring, and lavatories and toilets. Some items such as doors are being repurposed. Wall surfaces will be painted according the Creamistry specifications. This retail project requires specific window treatments and fees per Mall of Georgia.
On May 19, Seth Chandlee, CEO of Chandlee Holdings and Founding Partner of Chandlee and Sons Construction commented on the Chandlee Construction Facebook page, “Mall of Georgia is the chosen location for the State of Georgia’s second Creamistry location – a second store is in Savannah. Creamistry is expanding its proprietary nitrogen instant ice-cream trademark in Georgia. Chandlee and Sons Construction is happy to have been chosen as the design/build commercial construction firm for their newest location. Each time we replicate a brand image for a company, we learn everything about that brand. Now that we have turned over a corporate approved replica, the brand maintains its desired goal. The detail finishes are what set each brand apart from the next! Should we ever build another Creamistry – we can do so in our sleep. And kudos to Chandlee Electric for a professional job!”
Creamistry is in Suite VB02 at 3333 Buford Drive in the Village Shops center of the Mall of Georgia. The franchise website is https://creamistry.com .
