A popular eatery in Edina near the Southdale mall, this Schlotzsky’s Deli is loved by many! But congestion during the lunch rush, outdated displays, and the need to add new food features made the owner realize some updates needed to be made to this well-loved space. Taking on the slow process of remodeling on their own for over a year’s time, the Schlotzsky’s owner then decided to enlist professional help and invited us here at Sass Construction to take control. In under two weeks we were able to make major changes and left the deli with a fresh look and convenient layout!
Before the remodel the display surfaces were bland and smooth, and the room wrapped around the food service area with limited seating. The register was always congested during lunchtime because the soda machine display was right behind it.
The goal of the remodeling project was to:
1.) Bring in the Cinnabon Unit for a large feature display
2.) Add updated style with new textures and colors
3.) Provide a larger and more open seating area
4.) Move the soda machine around the corner (out of the way)
With fresh ideas, good design, and efficient work, we were able to meet all of these goals quickly and effectively! We brought in brighter colors throughout the eatery and a beautiful stone veneer along the cabinetry to bring some texture to the eye. We also custom made the cabinets and countertops to a perfect fit. We worked with Coca-Cola to move the soda fountain to the other side of the room, adding ease to the ordering process and creating a roomier environment all around.
Schlotzsky’s Deli is now better than ever, offering customers a more comfortable experience all around and proud of their new updated look. Peak at the before and after photos below, and then stop into the Edina Schlotzsky’s Deli to enjoy the look and experience for yourself!
