Location: Minot, ND
Desiring a less conventional convenience store experience, Pinnacle Express worked with Foss Architecture + Interiors to create a unique brand that can be used in all Pinnacle projects. This new facility in Minot, North Dakota was designed to create a sense of ‘country comfort’ in the ‘big city’. The 8,500 SF building is designed to look like a log cabin inside & out with logs, heavy timber trusses, rock, and a feature fireplace.
The building hosts a large retail area with checkout counters, support service spaces, large coolers, a coffeeshop with seating, a full kitchen, and an attached car wash. Site planning and design took into consideration safe and functional driving flows and included parking, gas pumps, service access areas, two vehicle drive-throughs, and a new Dairy Queen.
