Dale & Thomas Popcorn is a national retail chain of gourmet popcorn. The brand is a collaborative result of respected entrepreneur Warren Struhl and Isaiah Thomas of business and basketball fame. The brand was in the beginning stages of its corporate retail program when Claro Development was brought in to assist in the development of the program from the ground up. Claro Development was engaged to provide the design, architecture, procurement, construction, and franchise development package for a national multi-unit rollout.
Upon completion of the development of the retail program, Claro was engaged to manage all aspects of design, development and construction of eight stores in five states within seven months. Additionally, the original flagship store located in Times Square was upgraded to match the new look and feel of the brand design. The store locations included large scale retail developments, shopping mall kiosks, and airport outlets.
Nominated for a Retail Store of the Year Award, the concept showcased Claro Development's ability to understand what makes retail great and the firm's ability to work with clients to create meaningful results.
