This brand includes such iconic restaurants as Kentucky Fried Chicken, Taco Bell, and Pizza Hut. Franchise facilities are located throughout the United States. The goal for the prototype restaurants is to create an efficient space for maximum work flow that results in high quality and consistent product, shorter production time, and lower overall costs.

To ensure consistent products and efficient operations, items such as kitchen equipment are critical to the restaurant operations. Therefore, coordination with kitchen designers and specialty suppliers as well as electrical requirements and plumbing systems ensures compliance with franchise guidelines. Together, there is a combined commitment to consistent growth and development, as well as providing the most convenient, desirable and accessible restaurant facilities and locations across the country.

Remodel challenges include adapting prescriptive elements onto a variety of building types to maintain a consistent look between all facilities. Developing creative structural solutions for the facade framing to maintain consistency has allowed for a faster construction process so renovations can be completed in four weeks or less.
