TGI FRIDAY’S on expansion course

 

REINHOLD KELLER successfully remodelled both TGI stores in Oslo

TGI FRIDAYS – everyone will probably have seen or even used the acronym TGIF at some time or other. It means nothing more than Thank God it’s Friday! And it is exactly this Friday spirit heralding the weekend to come that TGI FRIDAYS wishes to convey to its guests for the entire week – and has now done so in more than 900 stores since 1965. And all along the lines of “Here, it’s always Friday!”

Casual dining style is what TGI calls its deliberately relaxed atmosphere. Brought to life by its staff but of course also by the style of the interior fittings. In a casual, laid-back, stylish and hip ambience with lots of real greenery, framed by the New York skyline, delicious cocktails meet a huge selection of American specialties while screening major sports broadcasts at the same time.

A fun fact on the side is that the bartenders at TGI FRIDAYS take part in the World Bartender Championship every year and mix drinks alongside their peers to compete for the title of the world’s best bartender. So definitely worth a visit.

The comfortable and at the same time functional furniture offers the franchisee variable possibilities to be able to respond to the individual seating wishes of the guests.

Two projects in Oslo

A total 900 stores in 60 countries. It is obvious that such a powerful global player in the catering industry would also rely on the expertise of an interior fitter who has meanwhile acquired over 40 years of experience in this segment. In this case, TGI’s franchisee was even aware of REINHOLD KELLER'S accomplishments from its many successfully completed BURGER KING® restaurant renovations. So, the logical conclusion was also to benefit from this portfolio when renovating the two TGI stores in Oslo. Both restaurants involved their own particular challenges, as both are at the high-traffic locations of Central Station and Oslo City. Greater demands were placed on perfect project management due to difficult delivery conditions and limited assembly periods, as in Oslo City a hotel is located directly above the TGI store, while at Central Station retail outlets are both opposite to as well as below the restaurant. But this is exactly what makes REINHOLD KELLER distinctively different: with adaptability, flexible thinking and of course the required wealth of experience, all procedures from production to final assembly were timed perfectly, so the client was able to serve juicy burgers to guests again right on time.

REINHOLD KELLER as your one-stop shop

But REINHOLD KELLER’S services are not just about project management. Our project managers also stand alongside the client as a sparring partner even before any project actually starts, providing advice on design issues as well as construction development. This was also the case with these two projects.
Plus, after the statement from TGI, “This is, we believe, the most beautiful TGI we have ever built!” we look forward to upcoming projects – maybe even as the general contractor. Further expansion is definitely planned.
