Seth Chandlee accelerated this retail remodel from the agreed-upon two-week time frame to completion in just three days utilizing fast track construction methods. He compressed the time of each stage of construction and he overlapped each of the construction components to enable the owner, Hank Cheatham, to reopen for business in record time thereby saving him a lot of money.
The former black and white wall paper and red wainscoting – the colors of the University of Georgia – were replaced with fresher finishes that included the use of one-hundred-year-old oak planks. The planks were used in building bench seating, wall details of 2.5 feet, and a unique floating ceiling feature that was created in the center of the dining room. Individual lighting elements that hang down at varying lengths were installed in this floating wood feature. New paint colors and trim were added. The concrete floor was exposed and polished to reflect the fresh inviting atmosphere that is now warmed by the rustic elements. All of these changes only enhanced the team spirit in bulldog country.
Stuffed Burger is the brain child of Hank Cheatham and the flagship store for his franchise. Hank had this to say about his experience: “Chandlee and Sons is amazing! In the restaurant business, time is money. During a renovation every day you are not open, you are losing money. I called Chandlee and Sons to discuss my ideas and expectations. Two weeks later, the design, the schedule and the prep work was completed. Then they began the renovations. They were completely finished in three days leaving the restaurant looking stunning! You don’t know how ecstatic I was to have this done two weeks ahead of schedule. That’s two weeks of profit that I had written off!”
“When everything is riding on your budget and the amount of time it will take, you want to be sure that every detail will be taken care of. I recommend Chandlee and Sons for any construction need – they will give you the results you want. I can’t thank Seth and his team enough for such an incredible job. It was a great experience to work with them. They far exceeded my expectations and their quote was the most competitive. Thanks again!”
This Stuffed Burger restaurant is located in Suite 304 of the Georgetown Square shopping center at 1860 Barnett Shoals Road in east Athens, Georgia.
