JK2 Scenic adds steampunk elements to Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen
ORLANDO, Fla. (Jan. 26, 2017) — From its gleaming copper-colored pipes to all of its gizmos and gadgets, Universal Orlando CityWalk’s Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen fully embraces the steampunk theme.
JK2 Scenic helped bring this theming to life with a custom build-out of the interior fixtures and millwork.
Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen is a full service restaurant, bar and confectionery, serving everything from classic dishes with a twist to gourmet chocolates and unique desserts.
JK2 Scenic, which is based in Apopka, worked with both Universal Creative and HW Davis Construction on the 17,500-square-foot space.
The firm specializes in bringing a “wow” factor to any project. At Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen, JK2 worked on the interior theming of the restaurant entrance and chocolate piping fixtures, retail store millwork, back of house cabinets, private dining room display cases and the exterior host station.
The work included creating a rotating cocoa bean fixture that displays the story of how chocolate is made, creating a faux cocoa bean display with hand-fabricated cocoa beans, and creating two themed display cases with rotating gears and flashing lights. In addition, JK2 Scenic fabricated the retail casework and shelving, the chocolatier cabinet, the host station, a center candy display, and many floor fixtures, display tables and display carts.
Because themed piping was essential to the steampunk feel of space, JK2 also integrated themed pipes and two large domed structures into the building, working to secure them around utility lines and to ensure they were at a precise elevation.
“Projects like the Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen allow us to show what JK2 Scenic can really do,” said Julie Holmes, head of the JK2 Scenic Division. “We bring dreams to life, and this is a fun example.”
Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen opened in 2016.
