Thoughts

The Toyota Texas Motor Manufacturing Plant is one of San Antonio's largest employers and still growing. To accommodate and attract a talented workforce, the company has begun remodeling areas of their San Antonio plant that will have big impacts on the overall working environment experience for its team members. One of these areas includes a completely overhauled kitchen & cafeteria with brand new seating area expansion. Once completed, the remodeled space will be called the 1794 Bistro, named after the ranch the plant resides on that was first established in 1794. A new contemporary industrial aesthetic will run throughout the bistro that marries clean lines, modern colors and touches of natural materials that relate back to the historic ranch. In addition, a once unused gravel landscape outside of the existing cafeteria will be transformed in a semi-covered fenced-in courtyard for additional seating.
