Owned and operated by Marv & Lois Kuiper. (Kuiper is pronounced kiper as in wiper or viper..) From concept to design to finish, we have been building commercial kitchens, restaurants and bars for 20 years. We get it done.

Marv and Lois Kuiper            If we can't do it, you don't need it done..!!!
(Marv and I make a great team. We renewed our vows in 2009 and plan on doing it again - we just work!) 

We've gotten involved in laundromats  and here's our latest... Megawave Coin Laundry in Hopkins.

Los Ocampos in St. Paul is one of our masterpieces.  Owned and operated by Armando and Lilia O Campo.  Their dream was to take an old Baker's Square and turn it into a modern upbeat home for their specialties. It is beautiful.

We helped another lady realize a "dream come true" when we built her a brand new laundromat.  All Washed Up is owned and operated by Shantea Holmes.
