The “World’s Largest White Castle” is now officially open near Scottsdale, AZ. The Grand Opening was packed as you can see here and at one point White Castle was forced to implement a “60-slider limit” on customers after several customers had ordered burgers “hundreds at a time”, as was reported by ABC Channel 15 in AZ. Thank you White Castle for letting us continue our long tradition of building restaurants for you and we are honored to be part of making history with you! This particular White Castle is 4,589 square feet and at this point is the World’s Largest ever White Castle and the ONLY White Castle in the state of Arizona. If the popularity of this location is any indication of how much folks in AZ love sliders, we may need to build more White Castles soon so that people can continue to “feed their Crave”!
This is a rendering of what the new concept for Oberweis will look like when it opens in O’Fallon, MO. In the St. Louis, MO metro area we are pretty familiar with and love the Oberweis Dairy with its great selection of ice cream and milk products, however this new concept from Oberweis includes burgers and pizza as well! Yes, the new Oberweis location in O’Fallon, MO will feature not only the wildly popular Oberweis Dairy but also will have options for the burger and pizza lover as well. As you will not on this artist rendering, this new location features “That Burger Joint” and “Woodgrain Pizza” as well. The location is very convenient to the intersection of Mexico Rd. and Highway K and it’s less than two miles from the intersection of Hwy K and Interstate 70. Blanton Construction is very pleased to be building this new concept for Oberweis and we look forward to posting progress photos along the way.
White Castle is now in Scottsdale, AZ! Blanton Construction is wrapping up the first White Castle to be built in Arizona and the Grand Opening is slated for October the 23rd, 2019.

The Grand Re-Opening of the QuikTrip located at the intersection of Hwy 70 and Mid Rivers Mall Drive in St. Peters, MO opened this morning (7-25-19) at 5am. This was a full “scrape and rebuild” project, which required us to remove all of the old fuel tanks and lines and demolish the store and other existing structures and build everything new. People who frequent this particular QuikTrip often will be very pleased to find a bigger store with a greater variety of products and the very popular QT Kitchen. There still are separate entrances and cashiers for the semi-truck diesel fuel patrons and the automotive fuel customers and with the new counter configuration, you should find your time in line waiting in line to be less.
This building is now called T-Rex but it’s also known on the National Historic Registry as the Lammert Building. Located in downtown St. Louis, MO this gorgeous 8 story building was completed in 1898. We at Blanton Construction are thrilled to be working at this location and doing what we like to refer to as “the ultimate in recycling and making what’s old, new again.” Look at the fabulous wooden ceilings that have been uncovered from under ugly, dated, drop ceilings and will be restored to their former glory. The same is true of the columns in the building. The mix of old and new will bring this building into the 21st century and make it a productive work space again.
Sign installation in progress at QuikTrip just off Highway 70 at the Mid Rivers Mall Drive exit in St. Peters, MO. This full “scrape and rebuild” project is now nearing completion. This will be welcome news to those of us who stop at this particular location frequently because we work in the area, but also, I’m certain over the road truck drivers have missed this very convenient and friendly place to stop while it has been closed. I’ll be posting news about a Grand Re-Opening date very soon, so please keep watching.
It’s official! The QuikTrip just off of Hwy. 70 at Bryan Rd in St. Peters, MO just re-opened for business on Thursday, April the 25th at 6am. This store underwent what is called a “full scrape and rebuild”, which means nothing was really left from the former store, including the underground fuel tanks. In every way, this is a “new” store and not a remodel. This particular QuikTrip features the very popular QT Kitchen where there is a large variety of food selections and also a variety of ways to place your order. You can still simply come into the store, walk up to the QT Kitchen counter and order your food personally from one of the QT team members, or you can use one of the several self-serve ordering kiosks in the store or perhaps you are in a big hurry and it’s more convenient to order via the QT App on your smartphone so that your order will be ready for pickup when you arrive. QuikTrip truly strives to make your life easier by getting you in and out of the store quickly and with quality products. we at Blanton Construction are so happy that QuikTrip Corporation has once again entrusted us to build yet another one of their locations and we wish everyone at QuikTrip continued happiness and success!
