Festival Foods

Skogen’s Festival Foods, Inc.

Since 2011, Somerville has completed nine projects with Festival Foods, a family- and employee-owned company operating retail grocery stores located strategically throughout Wisconsin. Of those projects, most have been new store construction, ranging from 67,000 square feet to 86,000 square feet in first floor area. Working with an already established prototype model and corporate design standards, Somerville develops site specific project documentation, assists in acquiring local and state permitting and provides construction administration services. The design challenge for Festival Foods stems from aggressive procurement, permitting, construction and load-in schedules. Somerville meets those challenges by leveraging our full-service experience and capabilities, and by agilely coordinating with various providers as well as the client.

In 2016, Somerville partnered with the Festival Foods team on an exclusive 57,000 square foot build-out project in Madison, Wisconsin. Situated on the ground floor of the Galaxie building in Madison, Wisconsin, the store sits beneath and beside a mix of high-rise apartments, commercial spaces and enclosed parking. Given the stores unique location, our design team put a twist on the prototypical store finishes and adapted to the more contemporary surrounding urban aesthetic. Enjoy a beer or glass of wine on “The Mezz,” this is not your average grocery store.
