SG Echo Delivers on Initial Two Innovative Modular-based Restaurants for Domino’s®
The Company has delivered two units in Arkansas stemming from a contract with a franchisee of the largest pizza chain in the world, with plans to expand
MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Safe & Green Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: SGBX) (“Safe & Green Holdings” or the “Company”), a leading developer, designer, and fabricator of modular structures, announced today that its subsidiary, SG Echo, LLC, has designed, delivered and installed two Quick Serve Restaurant (QSR) units in Arkansas on behalf of a franchisee for the biggest pizza company in the United States, Domino’s.
The first store of the initial two orders, which feature single module units, is located in Marion, Arkansas, and has been functional since November of 2022. The second store, located in Osceola, Arkansas, has been up and running since March of 2023.
These two stores, operated by Domino’s franchisee Ty Turner, served as a proof of concept for future stores with the national chain, with the plan for further select roll outs of modular-store fronts across the country. Safe & Green Holdings serves as designer, engineer and architectural consultant.
“I’m impressed with how fast we were able to get up and running with Safe & Green Holdings’ modular solutions,” Ty Turner explained. “The process was efficient and cost-effective, and I appreciate the speed at which a store can evolve from an idea on paper to fully functioning and operating.”
Safe & Green Holdings, formerly SG Blocks, has a proven track record around the world of repurposing secondhand shipping containers to give them a second life. The Company, which still utilizes shipping containers for certain projects, has applied these sustainable methods to all modular builds that the Company creates, via the single module approach. Single modules can be relocatable, providing second use for projects that otherwise would live only one life in a singular location before being demolished.
Additionally, modular methods reduce much of the environmental impact associated with traditional construction, with 80-90% of the build often being completed within the Company’s own factory walls, reducing noise pollution as well. Modular is often viewed as using materials far more efficiently, minimizing waste, and reducing carbon emissions.
“We have a wonderful working relationship with Domino’s and its franchisees,” Paul Galvin, Chairman and CEO of Safe & Green Holdings, noted. “Not only is Domino’s a global leader in the QSR industry, but the team recognizes the opportunity to deploy a fleet of sustainable and green modular storefronts, which aligns perfectly with our mission to make the restaurant industry more environmentally friendly and efficient. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.”
Safe & Green Holdings provided the concept design, design development, and construction of the units. The units arrived on-site already roughly 90% completed from the SG Echo factory.
“These modular builds from Safe & Green Holdings enable our organization to get freestanding lobby-less units up quickly, affordably and with lower environmental impact than a typical build,” Kenneth Guevara, Domino’s Senior Manager of US Development, noted. “We’ve had a great experience with the initial two units, and we look forward to discussing future plans together.”
Safe & Green Holdings will keep the public up to date on potential future storefronts and plans between the two companies.
