Scope

Located in Cowpens, South Carolina, this travel plaza faces I-85 and was formally Mr. Waffle.  Design South was retained to assist the new ownership with updating the existing building and store branding.  The interior and exterior are both defined by new architectural features.  These features emphasize points of interest such as updated entrances, refreshment areas, customer service, seating areas, and transform this out-of-date store with a new image. 
 
The plaza holds all the essentials for travelers: motel rooms, showers, fitness center, business center, media room, vehicle fuel, convenience store with coffee and refreshments, and space for future food service tenants.  The new coffee bar has a seating area with media screens to invite visitors to take a break from their travels. The amenities and new design help this travel plaza become a destination for truckers and travelers alike.
