Warren Thorpe and the Total Fitouts Wide Bay team showcased their expertise in hospitality commercial fitouts by transforming French Hot Bread, a popular bakery and cafe in Maryborough. The project, led by business owner and commercial fitout expert Warren Thorpe, was completed in just five weeks despite the bakery continuing to operate throughout the process.
The owners of French Hot Bread had a clear design vision and sense of style, and they wanted to create a new experience for the rural town while maintaining the business’s friendly and local atmosphere. The team at Total Fitouts Wide Bay were up to the challenge, and they were able to deliver the project on time and to budget.
The original bakery space was deep set, dark and deep purple, but the end result was light, bright, airy, and inviting. The fitout featured white, wooden panels, wainscotting, and contrasting accents creating a provincial style that perfectly matched the owners’ vision.
Bespoke workbenches were hand-installed, and ample seating was fitted across the space, ensuring that customers had plenty of space to relax and enjoy their baked goods and quality coffee. The front of house featured display cabinets, built-in benches, upholstered seating, and bespoke signage.
To create a timeless hospitality fitout, the team at Total Fitouts Wide Bay restored and added traditional trims and features on the ceiling, and wainscotting was installed throughout the space. Plants and warm lighting completed the ambience, making the bakery a popular destination for both locals and tourists alike.
Warren Thorpe’s years of fitout experience allowed him to offer substitute and different product ideas to save money and time, such as swapping out expensive and hard-to-supply folding doors for a more cost-effective, easy to source selection. Using the in-house designers at Total Fitouts Wide Bay helped to maximise these benefits for customers, ensuring that they got the end result they desired on time, with quality, and within budget.
Total Fitouts Wide Bay’s commercial fitout services are the perfect choice for any business looking to transform their space into a beautiful and functional environment. Their team of experts can handle everything from design to construction, making the entire process seamless and stress-free for their clients.
