Franchise Collaboration: Jeff Ackerman, a new franchise owner for Potbelly, engaged MCP by inviting them to submit a competitive bid as the general contractor for their new store in East Peoria.
Selection Based on Relationship and Trust: Despite not being the lowest bidder, Jeff Ackerman chose MCP for the construction based on the trust and comfort level he had with Chris Tyra and MCP. The selection emphasized the importance of relationships and trust in the construction industry.
Coordination with Landlord’s General Contractor: To expedite the store’s completion, MCP coordinated closely with the landlord’s general contractor, who was responsible for a portion of the building shell. Overlapping the work with the building shell construction allowed for a more streamlined and efficient project timeline.
Effective Collaboration and Successful Outcome: Throughout the construction and the store’s opening, MCP worked seamlessly with Jeff and his team. The effective collaboration not only ensured the timely completion of the project but also contributed to the overall success of the new Potbelly store.
Building Lasting Relationships: Although Chris Tyra had no prior acquaintance with Jeff before the project, the successful collaboration led to the development of a strong friendship. Jeff Ackerman remains one of MCP’s best references, highlighting the lasting relationships built through effective project delivery.
Expansion and Continued Success: Several years later, MCP continued its successful partnership with Jeff Ackerman by successfully completing his second Potbelly store in Peoria, IL. This expansion of projects underscores the satisfaction and trust in MCP’s capabilities.
The Potbelly East Peoria project exemplifies the importance of trust, collaboration, and relationship-building in the construction industry. MCP’s commitment to delivering successful outcomes has not only resulted in the completion of a quality project but also in the establishment of lasting friendships and continued partnerships.
