US Food’s Charleston CHEF’STORE



Frampton Construction completed work on a US Foods facility in downtown Charleston, S.C. in August 2018. The approximately 59,000-square foot facility sits on a nine-acre site with frontage on Meeting Street and consists of a CHEF’STORE, a “Culinary Innovation Center”, and office space.

Constructed with structural steel and concrete tilt panels, the building boasts a façade that includes architectural metal wall panels and concrete tilt panels with brick inlay.

Designed as a one-stop shop for restaurant operators and food industry professionals, the store features an assortment of more than 5,000 food products as well as restaurant-grade equipment and other supplies.

The store also features a state-of-the-art, Culinary Innovation Center area where restaurant operators have an opportunity to sample products, learn about new food trends and menu concepts and consult with US Foods culinary experts on how best to use products in a variety of applications.

Hoyt & Berenyi and Robert Johnson Architects are the civil engineer and architect on the project. This is Frampton Construction’s third project for US Foods. The two completed projects are in Tempe, Arizona, and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

What Customers are saying

Frampton was originally interviewed for our Corporate Office in Columbia and although not selected, the Frampton team not only impressed me but also the owners of the company so much so that we decided after that interview that Frampton should be included on our very short list of contractors to handle our projects throughout our service area in the Sunbelt.  Like all of our contractors we started out with a couple small renovations projects and progressed to much larger turnkey/design build service centers. Frampton has been a pleasure to work with. Their attention to detail and continuous improvement for quality and cost control to the owner is very much appreciated. The Southeastern team looks forward to many more successful projects with the Frampton team.
