Cook General announces partnership with Norsan Restaurant Group for the new Frankie’s steakhouse at the 1818 Club
Oakwood-based general contracting group — Cook General Contracting — announces a partnership with the Norsan Restaurant Group and The 1818 Club of Gwinnett.
The 1818 Club, Gwinnett County’s premier private business and social club, recently announced upcoming renovations to its main dining area to improve the quality of membership for its guests. Located in the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce building on Sugarloaf Parkway, The 1818 club has partnered with the Norsan Restaurant Group to upgrade the quality of the food and beverage program.
The Norsan Restaurant Group, who have been long time members of the club, now can increase the perks of membership through the restaurant experience. Bringing in elements of an upscale supper club, the Norsan Restaurant Group will take over the management of all food and beverage service for the facility.
Norsan is partnering with Cook General Contracting and Robb McKerrow of r*development, to create an atmosphere second to none for both members of the club and the public. Robb, an architect with a life-long love affair in designing and building almost 1000 restaurant locations has brought to life the amazing concept of the new restaurant — Frankie’s— that will be located on the 3rd floor of the facility.
Cook General Contracting is overseeing the renovation and construction of this project. Greg Swinks, COO of Cook is privileged to be a part of a project that will bring such an impact to the Gwinnett community. “Our construction process of demolition and renovation will not only bring a new look and feel to the club, but also provide the guest of the building with a new outdoor patio area and glass wall to bring more life to the dining experience.”
The Norsan Restaurant Group owns and operates local favorites like Luciano’s Ristorante Italiano and the Zagat-rated Pampas Steakhouse. The 1818 Club, which prides itself on connecting businesses within the community, will retain its private membership status. Only members will have access to the club for breakfast and lunch, and will maintain exclusive use of the backroom bar and Capital Member’s lounge.
However, after 5 p.m., the main dining room will begin opening to the public under the name Frankie’s – The Steakhouse and offer dining service seven nights a week to the community.
