Mercado Grocery – Grand Prairie, Texas

Being a multi-versatile grocery, this Mercado Grocery facility located in Grand Prairie included over 35,000 square feet of retail, food preparation and stock area. Five freezer/coolers are located throughout the store supporting a full kitchen for prepared meals, tortilleria, a full bakery and a meat market/ preparation area. Additionally, a juice bar is located adjacent to the produce area where smoothies and juice drinks are prepared for customers.

The masonry and stucco design is in keeping with the Spanish motif and incorporates brilliant colors with high gloss tiles for ease of cleaning as well. The colonnade at the front of the store provides for covered areas for vendors to sell merchandise specific to the request of the owner. This project was stopped during the design phase.
