“Russo Modular builds Dutch Bros at our controlled manufacturing environment in Phoenix, Arizona, and then transports the building kits complete with finishes across state lines.” He explains, “Seeing how modular has allowed Dutch Bros to schedule a total construction duration of less than 60 days from demo of the existing building to re-opening of the store is spectacular.”
Russo goes on to say how important this is, not only to Dutch Bros, but to the community of Klamath that within 3 days the site transforms from an empty lot with a concrete foundation to a building that is 98% complete.
Getting to this point requires rigorous planning and coordination with different teams, but Russo talks about their modular construction process as a huge win for corporations and franchises. Clients benefit exponentially from modular designs with repeatability. The systematic creation of multiple units essentially converts to cost reduction right from the start. He also mentions how their new patented frame design is giving them the edge in QSR modular usable space.
“It’s all about the ability to control—control of quality, control of time, control of costs, control of coordination,” says Russo.
As an added source of pride, the company manufactures environmentally-friendly structures. They use sustainable steel products and environmentally conscious components for longer lasting builds with less waste.
