In February 2021, Gillis Gilkerson announced the completion of renovations to the Arby’s fast food restaurant located at 1200 Forrest Avenue in Dover, Delaware. In as little as three weeks, GGI’s construction team upgraded the +/- 3,197 square foot space, modernizing both the interior and exterior of the building.
“Gillis Gilkerson did a great job with the project,” said Mike Abercrombie, owner of the property. “They developed an accurate budget with quality contractors who completed timely work.”
Project Manager Robin Steininger led the firm’s efforts based on her extensive experience in working with Abercrombie on fast food restaurant renovations. In recent years, Steininger has successfully revamped the Popeye’s in Salisbury, Maryland, and the Arby’s in Denton, Maryland, Selbyville, Delaware and Woodside, Delaware.
“These types of projects tend to be fast moving. We understand that every day the business is closed, revenue is lost,” said Steininger. “I credit the hard work and dedication of Superintendent Ivan Jackson and our subcontractors with pushing this project across the finish line under a tight timeline.”
GGI’s scope of work encompassed the installation of a new exterior insulation and finishing system (EIFS) in addition to a number of interior and exterior aesthetic updates. The restaurant is now open and in full-operation with a fresh façade, dining room, and bathrooms.
