Project Profile: La Lupita

We’re currently constructing the third La Lupita location in Lenoir City, Tennessee, where the business is currently using a leased space. We have previously completed two locations for Manuel, the owner of La Lupita, with one in Maryville and the other in Loudon.

We expect the Lenoir City location to be complete by April 2015. The new location will feature a 5100 square foot  Hispanic grocery store and restaurant space, as well as a  2100 square foot  adjacent Laundromat. Below are pictures of the property prior to breaking ground:

La Lupita is renowned for its authentic Hispanic cuisine and well-known for its baked goods. The Loudon location was completed in February of 2011 and features a restaurant, grocery store, hair/nail salon and Laundromat and is slightly larger than the Lenoir City location.

The Maryville location was the original La Lupita, and it was our first time working with the business.  This location varies from the Loudon and Lenior City locations, because the Maryville store features retail space instead of a Laundromat.  We were able to help the Owners overcome poor soil conditions in that old tanks and trash were found under the expansion site. These are some pictures of the original building:

At Leon Williams Contractors, we are excited to be part of La Lupita’s growth, and looking forward to helping Maria and Manuel continue their expansion as they offer authentic Hispanic food to other East Tennessee communities.
