Blendily's FIRST STREETFRONT RETAIL HOME
Our design process began with spatial planning. Our space would house a retail area, production kitchen, back office & storage, and flexible seating for customers. We solidified our brand colors and textural elements that we wanted to include.
From start to finish, the design to build process took a total of 6 months. The interior display and seatting area tables were designed & built by Founder Ivy Chuang herself.
Our 1532 NE Alberta location opened its doors in November 2018.
