WELCOME TO THE UNITED STATES
When the Dublin, Ireland based fuel/food court giant decided to expand into the U.S. via the acquisition of a South Carolina based regional convenience store chain, they called on Upland Architects to assist. The team at Upland quickly helped align a re-branding program with the Applegreen team and their franchise partners to deliver newly formatted locations to better serve its customers with clean, well-lit stores along with new convenience food offers.
SPEED TO MARKET
Realizing that downtime in a fuel/convenience store environment is the biggest challenge to overcome, Upland Architects worked with Applegreen's franchise partners to develop layouts and concepts that maximized impact while minimizing the project timeline. Through building and fostering relationships, one of Upland Architects’ core values, a partnership team was created between client, architect, franchises, and contractors, contributing to the success of Applegreen in the Southeastern United States.
To meet an aggressive schedule, Upland Architects provided services including site assessment and verification, documentation and drawings, bidding services, and construction management.
DEVELOPING THE BRAND
Today, Upland Architects is helping Applegreen develop its US brand by working with Applegreen’s Dublin based design team. The vision is to synchronize the European design with the U.S. design to achieve global uniformity across both continents.
