Gail Smith, owner of Almost Home in Greencastle, IN, has been working with Emily McClelland here at the C&T Design Indianapolis office for the past year. What started as a redesign of the kitchen, specifically the dishroom and prep, cooking, and baking areas, rapidly turned into a much bigger project as an inspired Gail took off running. She is currently in the process of finalizing design decisions and getting that work completed in the front of the house now that the work in the back of the house is complete.
An article on the front page of Greencastle's Banner Graphic last week highlighted these changes as well as another exciting change. Almost Home now has a new executive chef, Troy Roberts, and a new attitude toward the food - "contemporary cuisine," as Gail refers to it.
As noted on their website, Almost Home was named a recipient of OpenTable's winner of the Diners' Choice 2015 award. We are excited to see what these new changes bring.
Best of luck, Almost Home!
Foodservice Equipment & Supplies Magazine's Dealer Sales Representative (DSR) of the month was named earlier this week.
Congratulations to Emily McClelland! She was named DSR of the Month for January and deserves it.
Emily has been a part of C&T Design since her college days when she spent the summer of 2007 interning at the corporate office in Indianapolis. After earning her degree from Purdue University in Hospitality & Tourism Management, she was hired on as a Project Coordinator in 2009. She took the opportunity to spend her first few years under the tutelage of the seasoned foodservice design and supply veterans Larry Simonel and Phill Strauss learning from some of the best in the industry. (Cumulatively, those two gents have more than 100 years of foodservice industry experience!) She has made quite the name for herself in the Indianapolis area in the few short years she has been in the industry.
