Project: Evaluate and recommend alternatives to allow COSTCO to expand the food court without carts and kiosks while maintaining modularity
Solution: Designed a modular food court using a system of quick-connects for gas, electric and plumbing. The result was to design and manufacture a modular wall system capable of being relocated with little down time. The modular Food Court was designed and custom built to fit all locations The system was manufactured, shipped, knocked-down and assembled within a few days and allowed COSTCO the flexibility to relocate on demand.
Project: Restaurant Equipment
Solution: Sell restaurant equipment small wares directly to COSTCO. Program was tested and launched in Southern California
Project: Currently multiple suppliers of Sushi nationally which was a $65 million dollar business in 2001with lack of consistency to expand nationally.
