Quick Service Restaurants

Serving up results.

CTM’s comprehensive menu of design, engineering and architectural services have made us a leading choice with Canada’s biggest names in fast food: Tim Hortons, McDonalds, and Carl’s Jr just to name a few.

CTM works with corporate franchises and individual franchisees to come up with custom solutions that best fit the site-specific space, setting and marketplace – while respectfully following the brand’s corporate standards.

We are comfortable designing to any store configuration: be it a free standing building, strip mall bay or c-store sublease. About 20% of our business involves designing unique food service spaces for independent restaurants or emerging franchises.

What is the secret to our success?

CTM’s design team follows a proven recipe to ensure an efficient workflow within the restaurant and drive-thru areas, which helps to optimize customer flow, queuing and seating. We configure the kitchen and service areas for maximum efficiency. We take the time to learn about your business, your processes and your priorities. And we apply best industry practices to the little things that are often overlooked: such as the placement of menu boards, condiment and beverage stations, waste receptacles and washrooms.

The result is a safe, efficient restaurant layout that maximizes profitability by keeping customers coming back for more.
