DGC Capital Transforms Aging Supermarket into State-of-the-Art Uncle Giuseppe’s Marketplace
$5M Renovation Delivers Old World, Fine Italian Food Experience
Mt Vernon, NY – May 18, 2021 – DGC Capital Contracting Corporation (DGC), a leading retail and commercial general contractor in the Tri-state area, is excited to announce the recent completion of Uncle Giuseppe’s in North Babylon, New York – a 32,420 square foot store with a new 3,586 square foot mezzanine.
DGC Capital was retained to convert an old King Kullen supermarket into an architectural masterpiece that is reminiscent of Old-World Italy with finishes that put you in the heart of Venice – featuring arches, Italian tile and a fresco of the sky over the produce department. The entire construction project took a total of 16 weeks – starting in mid-August of 2020 and finishing in early December with the store opening on December 18, 2020.
The marketplace includes all new utilities, such as:
- A modern kitchen with 55’ cooking hood.
- A fresh mozzarella room that is temperature controlled with a mozzarella making machine.
- A fresh pasta room with multiple pasta machines and a bakery with enough ovens to accommodate everything they make in-house.
- A new mezzanine, located in the rear of the store, which includes a manager’s office, human resource office, IT room, storage rooms, associates’ restroom, and a breakroom.
“Because of our ability to meet such a demanding construction schedule and the outstanding reception by the community, DGC is teaming up with Uncle Giuseppe’s again on 2 additional projects in Westchester County, NY and Morris County, NJ,” said Gerry Ryan, CEO & President at DGC Capital. “We’re extremely pleased with the outcome of the store and are beyond thrilled to have been brought onboard to create two additional marketplaces.”
The two additional upcoming Uncle Giuseppe’s projects, Morris Plans, NJ and Yorktown, NY are due to commence on 5/15/2021 and 6/1/2021, respectively.
