General Mills

Betty Crocker Kitchens Renovation

Minneapolis, Minnesota


Blending aesthetics with technical precision, the Betty Crocker Kitchens includes 19 kitchens where General Mills tests new recipes. The ergonomically planned kitchens incorporate commercial-grade equipment with rich millwork and an open floor plan to encourage collaboration. A 50-seat demonstration kitchen includes a portrait of Betty Crocker--"America's First Lady of Food." An adjacent library houses more than 7,000 cookbooks.

Visually connected to second-floor offices, the test kitchens reflect the popularity of a shared cooking experience.
