Quick-serve restaurants Green Leaf’s, Bananas Smoothies & Frozen Yogurt, and South Philly Steak & Fries to be completed in early October
Tampa, FL (RestaurantNews.com) South Florida-based general contracting and construction management firm Eclipse Building Corp. began construction on three restaurant concepts in the food court of the eagerly awaited Tampa Premium Outlets, a 440,000-square foot, 110-store outlet mall owned by Simon Property Group. One of Simon’s largest outlet malls, Tampa Premium Outlets, is slated to open on October 29, 2015.
Eclipse Building Corporation, which has offices in Fort Lauderdale and Tampa, was hired by franchisee Raitom LLC to head the build of Green Leaf’s, Bananas Smoothies & Frozen Yogurt, and South Philly Steaks & Fries, which accounts for almost 40 percent of the outlet’s food court. The three gourmet eateries will occupy 1,320 square feet of the outlet mall’s food court and offer freshly made menu items daily. Eclipse will handle all aspects of the build-out, from concept to completion.
“We are excited to be a part of the Raitom team and have the opportunity to work on one of Tampa’s premier shopping destinations. This is just the start to many more great things that we will be involved in throughout the community,” says Todd Whalen, founder and president of Eclipse.
In addition to its work on Raitoms’ eateries, Eclipse is currently bidding other food court and retail vendors that are part of Tampa Premium Outlets. Eclipse has extensive experience in the restaurant and retail industry with a clientele that includes such mall standards as For Eyes, J. McLaughlin, Build-A-Bear, Fresh Healthy Café, Perfumania and others.
“Eclipse brings a tremendous value to our projects, and not just for the competitive cost; their intimate knowledge of the restaurant industry, along with their two-year warranty and maintenance services made them the obvious choice,” says Thomas Winterburn, owner of Raitom LLC.
Construction on Green Leaf’s, Bananas Smoothies & Frozen Yogurt, and South Philly Steaks & Fries is expected to be completed October 5, 2015.
