Krispy Kreme Oasis
Hot Light Brands LLC selected Fox Architects to design these free-standing mall retail stores. The stores are tenants in the Wilton Partners-led redevelopment of a series of Illinois Tollway Oasis locations. Originally built in the 1950s these food service facilities were constructed over the roadway and included dual-access vehicle service stations.
Over the next thirty years these facilities fell into disrepair and utilization suffered. Wilton Partners contracted with The Illinois Tollway Authority to replace the Oasis sites and in turn approached Hot Light Brands to determine their interest in tenancy in the developments.
Fox Architects’ creative approach was to design a 1,400 SF facility that was pre-fabricated off-site and then installed in the selected Oasis locations. Our design integrates all the merchandising, retailing, and signage requirements of a conventional store into a compact, unified structure. These facilities have exceeded initial revenue expectations.
