Local Businesses Renovating Facilities

Published Thursday, February 27, 2020

Hoffman Planning, Design & Construction, Inc., an Appleton-based Design-Build firm, is managing renovation projects for three Northeast Wisconsin companies.  


At Abby Bank on Casaloma Dr. in Appleton, Hoffman will wrap up work in April on the renovation of the second floor of the office building. The renovation project involves about 9,100 sq. ft. to create office space for two building tenants, CASA of the Fox Cities and the Creative Group. 


Meanwhile in Ashwaubenon, Hoffman is leading the effort to convert the former Grazies Italian Grill into Parker John’s BBQ & Pizza on Oneida Street. The new restaurant is expected to open in late March, joining three other Parker John’s locations in Menasha, Sheboygan, and Kiel.


“We are pleased to have found a partner in Hoffman to help us bring Parker John’s BBQ & Pizza to the Green Bay area,” commented owner Aaron Sloma.


Hoffman is also providing design and construction services for the renovation and expansion of ACOCA Coffee on College Avenue in Appleton. Construction is expected to begin in spring and includes an upgraded full-service kitchen, a new coffee roasting space, and additional spaces for customers to sit and relax. The nearly 4,000 sq. ft. project is expected to be completed by early summer. 


“We’re very happy to have Hoffman as part of our team for the renovation,” said Bill Wetzel, ACOCA Coffee owner. “This project is going to allow us to serve our customers better by offering more food options and providing a larger area to relax and enjoy their coffee. We can’t wait until it’s complete!”
