Johnny Rockets, Destiny USA

Nostalgia made modern. Johnny Rockets in Destiny USA was a turn-key project. Design and build highlighted new amenities reminiscent of the memorable company brand.


Relax and enjoy the wonderful colors of the Caribbean. This 17,000 SF restaurant makes you feel like you are not in Syracuse, NY. This project was a fun one to put together because UDC got to work with the artists. Looking into the ceilings is like looking down from an airplane onto the Caribbean Islands.

Funny Bone

One of the premier comedy club and restaurants. This is one of 19 locations. We had to make sure being part of Destiny USA Mall that the walls were all sound proof in order to keep sounds from the kitchen and surrounding tenants. Noise control is very important. Comedians are very sensitive to any noise disruptions during performances.

The superintendents are excellent and their team managed to have the least amount of change orders of any project that we have ever built. Joe is a straight shooter, professional, and totally upfront.

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que

UDC built two additions to the Syracuse landmark store and completely redid all finishes throughout the restaurant. The most remarkable part of this project: we kept the restaurant open the entire time while we completed all additions and renovations during the middle of the winter.

Located in Cortland, NY, this was a turnkey project for a local developer named William Cleary. This is one of many projects we have done for this developer.

Unique has built 20 restaurants for me because they’re reasonable and know where to save money. Joe is easy to wok with and I couldn’t recommend him more.

Cantina Laredo

When the project came in over budget the owner asked UDC to come up with alternate specifications to save money. UDC found a cultured stone that looked very similar to stone specified by Cantina Laredo. We were able to save them $25,000 and now they have the same specifications for all there restaurants. The design makes you feel like you’re in the desert.

Joe is very personable and truly knows what he is doing. He works well with all the subcontractors and is concerned about the success of every project.

Salvatore Ferragamo

Unique created a location experience for Salvatore Ferragamo that spoke to the luxury goods they are known for worldwide. Salvatore Ferragamo’s origins date back to 1927 and their locations feature high end shoes, clothing, as well as women’s and men’s perfumes. The location immersed visitors in the brand’s reputation with a store that featured a perfect blend of style, quality and craftsmanship.

Sky Zone

A trampoline park where UDC has done multiple locations. A fun place for both kids and adults. (Dodgeball, basketball, and foam courts.) The most challenging part was to construct stable ramps, platforms, mesh rails and handrails to study standards. UDC was able to achieve this.

Chipotle Watertown

An industrial motif marked by concrete floors, exposed piping, natural colors and ample use of plywood and stainless steel–reflects a company culture that champions the basics…simple yet precise…like the restaurant itself.
