Introducing the new 105,000 Sq. Ft. Goodwill Gary, Indiana Campus

Introducing the new 105,000 Sq. Ft. Goodwill Gary, Indiana Campus

After breaking ground about two years ago, Goodwill Industries dedicated its new 105,000 square-foot campus in Gary, Indiana bringing 100 jobs. We are the proud builder of the new facility, an Excel charter school, a career center, and an outlet store.

Goodwill Industries searched a long time to find the right location for the first-ever Outlet store in the area. Get ready bargain shoppers; the outlet store is different from a traditional one. Items are brought in from other stores that did not sell and will be sold by the pound. You heard that right by the POUND! A unique concept and bargain shopping experience.

Not only is the new facility housing a unique bargain shopping experience, but it also has an Excel charter school, a free high-school for adults eighteen and older. The charter school is for adults seeking their high school diploma. There is on-site childcare for adults with children while they are in classes.

The career center provides free training to individuals to work on resumes, cover letters, interviewing skills, and job search opportunities.

The new facility brought jobs, compassion, education, and a great bargain shopping experience!

Drive-Thru, Carry-Out and Curbside Pick-Up

Drive-Thru, Carry-Out and Curbside Pick-Up

       

 

 

 

 

 

As restaurants navigate the new reality of the Coronavirus, many consider alternative business models to continue serving customers, keep employees working, and a revenue stream. Some restaurants are offering carry-out, curbside to go, and delivery services. The enthusiasm for a drive-through concept gives people an additional protective barrier from other people.

The restaurant industry will see a new reality, post Coronavirus. What does it look like, and how can Ancon Construction be a resource? Restaurant concepts will invest in a drive-thru, pick-up window, and curbside delivery options. In addition to adding drive-thru windows, restaurant owners will need to be able to provide safe locations for curbside delivery and dedicated parking specific for partners such as Grubhub for delivery services. With the number of seats in restaurants restricted, these new options are opportunities to discover a new customer base and retain potential lost revenues.

Ancon Construction has been serving the restaurant industry for over 45 years. We can help you design and build your new delivery window and provide spatial planning for your curbside/delivery service. Every city has a different requirement for drive-thru windows and vehicle stacking. We can help make this process easy and maximize the footprint of your site.
