Project Description

In the heart of Orlando, McCree design-built a 18,000-square-foot building for Darden Restaurants in Orlando. This one-story facility, a test kitchen for Darden, serves as a multifunctional hub encompassing executive administrative space, consumer testing, dining facilities, and food storage. The facility houses state-of-the-art appliances, food service prep areas, and simulated dining rooms, enabling efficient menu experimentation for the restaurant chain. The project’s remarkable feat lies in its quick completion within nine months.


The project was completed on time, on budget, and to exceptional quality.
