Bank of Vinita
As the oldest bank in the state of Oklahoma under its original charter, history is important to The First State Bank of Vinita. When the bank sought to remodel their main office it was essential that a sense of legacy was maintained while upgrading the functionality of the branch. The bank looked to IBT To accomplish the remodel by providing construction services and design input as well as construction management.
The remodeled branch offers additional service areas, a new conference room and maximized storage space. The reconfiguration also provides greater privacy to the sales and services areas. Materials such as ceramic stone tiles, rich wood tones, granite counter tops, a diversity of wall coverings and carpet designs segmented by areas convey the strong foundation of the bank and the breadth of services that are offered. These striking new elements are juxtaposed with historical features of the original bank, including a black marble safe, shoe shine stand and scale.
IBT works closely with Cinnabon to develop inventive designs and construction documents for their franchise restaurant locations throughout the U.S.
Cinnabon is a worldwide leader in cinnamon roll bakeries. Since opening in 1985, the franchise operates over 600 bakeries worldwide. These cohesively branded bakeries are located nationwide as well as in over 30 other countries.
Cinnabon bakeries are traditionally located in high-traffic venues such as shopping malls, airports, universities, casinos, amusement parks, military bases, train stations and travel plazas. An open air atmosphere is crucial for dispersing their unique Indonesian cinnamon smell. The premium cinnamon rolls are hand rolled and baked fresh in front of the customer, necessitating an open aseembly area.
Cinnabon stores vary from 200-300 square foot kiosks to large storefront locations; typically 600-800 square feet. The visible handcrafting area and the occasional dine-in seating are both addressed through innovative design. On occasion the Cinnabon store will be co-branded with a Carvel ice cream store.
