“In my case, WT handles my bidding for a GC, YUM A&E coordination, architectural plans, site development & plans, environmental testing, meeting with city, county and state permitting departments, meeting with planning and zoning commissions and boards, and conclude with on-site construction visits to ensure an on-time, on-budget project.  WT Development also offers ad-hoc small project coordination like adding a drive-thru window or increasing signage on an existing building.  No matter how big or small your project may be I can highly recommend that you consider WT Development for your next project.”

“...Shamrock and WT Development have teamed to address two major Taco Bell scrape and rebuild projects and one major KFC image upgrade.  From these experiences, I would list WT Developments' strengths to include site layout and design along with their abilities and persistence to navigate plans through the various levels of municipal and YUM Brand approvals.  I have found their fees for service to be reasonable and competitive.  I would be comfortable in recommending WT Development for any of your YUM Brand site development needs.”

We have been serving multi-unit restaurant and retail developers and franchisors since 1984, and we started polishing our skills long before that. As the endorsements to the left can attest, we are dedicated to client satisfaction. We understand that means an uncompromising work ethic, and being trusted with the most important and confidential project details.

Unlike most architectural firms, WT Development often provides consulting services for all phases of a project. We become familiar with all the project’s planning and implementation processes, and we respect project deadlines and budgetary targets. Our specialized focus enables us to anticipate and identify potential problems and to offer sound recommendations designed to keep projects moving forward.

WT Development is devoted to thorough project planning, effective execution and timely follow-through. This applies whether we play a small role in your project, or provide a full range of turnkey project management, architectural or engineering services. We know only one way to approach a project: as if we at WT Development were a partner and principal stakeholder in the project ourselves.
