Checkers

Orlando, Florida

When Checkers needed an exterior remodel, they hired Simpson to install a panel system consistent with their branding. Our team installed a system consisting of tile, metal and stucco on top of the existing façade. The Simpson Panel system offers many client benefits. Installation is completed in a fraction of the time of traditional methods, and the system can be modified onsite. Materials blend seamlessly for a high quality look that can be recreated at multiple restaurant locations.
