Utilising existing experience to oversee the expansion of Five Guys (France)
With over 1,500 restaurants across the globe, Five Guys (France) appointed Agilité Solutions to bring to life its vision for a new 500 sqm eatery in the Les Halles shopping district, Paris.
The US fast food chain was looking for a turnkey construction partner to strip out and refurbish its latest location, which was to be capable of seating up to 120 diners at any one time, and include a large outdoor area for increased footfall during peak summer months.
Agilité was chosen not only for its proven ability to work within strict brand guidelines, ensure consistent deliveries, and uphold customer expectations across borders, but because Five Guys had previously been impressed by the work of our country manager (Italy), Maria Luisa Daglia.
The cross-country collaboration saw Agilité bring together a ‘best in class’ network of suppliers for the project – including HVAC global D&B company Chapman Ventilation Limited – and the chain’s own branding agency, Black Sheep, based in London.
Laurent Delaunay, head of design and construction, Five Guys (France), explained: “We have worked with Maria Luisa Daglia and her team in the past and were impressed with Agilite’ capabilities in terms of delivering complex design and build projects and roll outs.
“Prior to joining Agilité, Maria Luisa was responsible for the fit out of Five Guys sites in Nice and Nantes. We are always keen to add more general contractors to our roster, so when the time came to source a partner for the Les Halles design, we were eager to work with her again.”
