Market Kitchen Cafeteria Design


Ready to improve or build your food service operations? Contact us to talk to one of our experts right away!

Designing a kitchen and dining area outside of the traditional restaurant setup requires creativity, foresight, and dedication. When you choose Rapids Contract and Design, you will work with a team that has delivered unique and functional retail kitchens and cafeterias, food courts, and food hall designs.

Grocery Store Foodservice Departments

Grocery stores can no longer settle for simply providing the ingredients for a meal – many have added mini food courts in the form of delis, buffets, and cafeterias. If this is something you wish to add to your store, come to Rapids for complete design services.

Our professionals will conduct a feasibility study, observing your store and providing feedback on the best location and setup for your dining area. Easy customer access and uninterrupted flow will be top of mind, so when your deli area is installed, dining customers will be able to effectively navigate the area without hindering grocery shopping customers.

Mall Food Court Cafeteria Design

Ensure that all guests in your shopping mall find your food court welcoming and easy to traverse with help from Rapids. A primary focus for all of our projects is communication, which is especially important to a busy, functioning mall. You will work with a team leader who will handle timelines, logistics, and communication with all vendors, contractors, and permit officials. To boost your confidence in the finished product, you can see your future food court before construction begins with our CADD services and 3-D walkthrough options!

Community Market/Food Hall Cafeteria Design

Food halls are increasingly popular as a way to test up-and-coming restaurant concepts and foods. They provide a launch pad without the massive commitment of a restaurant. Whether you own a food hall and want to create a space for people to rent or are a potential restauranteur who just purchased a share in a food hall, Rapids Contract and Design has the experience to build a flexible kitchen and dining area.

We create adaptable, compact spaces with all the kitchen equipment you need. The design can allow for the frequent vendor changes inherent in food halls. Customer flow will also be considered, as each area of the community market should be easily accessible.

If you are interested in saving money, you will have access to our LEED-certified interior designer. She will work to incorporate energy savings that help qualify your food market for tax credits.

An example of our work on a food hall is at NewBo City Market, where our team incorporated a fully functional teaching kitchen into an existing food hall for expanded functionality.

Rapids Contract and Design has the experience, knowledge, and skill to create any retail market foodservice concept from start to finish. Let us research, design, and install your retail kitchen and cafeteria to meet the needs of today’s consumers and restaurateurs. Contact us today.

Previous Work – NewBo Market (Kirkwood Culinary Classroom)

Rapids Contract helped Kirkwood build a beautiful culinary classroom at NewBo Market. It was paramount that this space be used as a genuine place of learning, which represented a unique challenge. The space was made into a fully functional kitchen and ADA compliant classroom, right in the heart of Cedar Rapids’ NewBo district.


Rapids Contract serves the United States with locations in Iowa, Minnesota, and Missouri!
