An iconic Cincinnati restaurant, Skyline Chili, continues to grow franchise stores throughout the Tri-State region, bringing it’s motto “It’s Skyline Time” to Hebron, KY.
The Hebron location shows an upgrade to a more modern exterior design with patterned textured EIFS, cultured-stone veneers, pin-striped awnings, and brass light fixtures. The interior features Skyline’s classic service bar counter and fixed bar stools where diners can watch the food being cooked. There are two spacious dining rooms wiht a seating capacity of up to 86 people total. There are 11 custom-framed booths adjacent to large storefront windows which providing a lot of natural light.
While on the surface this project appears to be simple and modest, it is quite the contrary. A lot of detailed woodwork was involved. Throughout the interior is milled poplar chair rail, baseboards, casings, and rabbeted beadboard paneling. Flooring is run with carpet tile, quarry tile, and slip resistant ceramic tile. Additionally, the MEP scopes required a lot of coordination. MEP work is typically more complex at restaurant projects due to the array of kitchen equipment and the tight spaces wherein the equipment is installed. For example, on this project there were nine floor drains and 3 floor sinks within a 1000sf; 1 in every 9x9 space of the kitchen (i.e. a maze of underground conduit). Above the acoustical ceilings is another maze of ductwork, supply lines, and electrical conduit.
