Joe’s Gourmet Market is a staple in the Metro Detroit Area known for fresh and in-season selections. Originally started as a family-owned farm stand, the family grew into a full-service grocery market with multiple locations.

Oliver/Hatcher renovated the 1967 building as well as added a 9,000 SF addition. The renovation included upgrades to both the interior and exterior of the building all while the store remained open for business.

The renovation included commercial food service and kitchen facilities, new walk-in coolers and freezers, open floor area refrigerated cases, and high-end architectural finishes.

Joe’s core business, fresh produce, was greatly enhanced with the addition of floor-mounted refrigerated display cases. The project team also implemented new interior retail sections including deli, prepared hot and cold meals, and specialty baked goods and coffee areas into the grocery space.
