Golden State Foods Innovation CenterChicago, Illinois
The Innovation Center serves as a place to gather, watch and experience Golden State Foods showcasing its food and liquid products. Inspired by the energy of its location in the West Loop neighborhood, the “The Chicago Kitchen Table” concept for the project comes to life. This space, like the kitchen table in a home, serves as the heart and soul that connects Golden State Foods’ products and their restaurant partners. This project achieved its goal of fusing the neighborhood culture with Golden State Foods’ global, gold standard image.
The project includes 4,300 SF of culinary areas (test kitchen and research & development lab) as well as creative office space (work lounge, conference rooms, and touch-down hoteling areas) in an open loft environment. Materials include classic, timeless finishes like wood, glass, brick, black iron, and concrete. They speak to the trusted and true foundations and values of Golden State Foods.
