Coffee shops and tap rooms. Sushi bars and full service restaurants. Single stores and master plans. Plus a wide range of others. Natina’s work traverses the gamut of retail. She is our food & beverage specialist and chief Caribou Coffee expert – having designed the original lodge concept in the early 90’s. Most recently she led the design for the newest Caribou Coffee at Minneapolis-St.Paul International Airport which has quickly become the busiest in the nation. She is detail-driven, skillfully translating brands into spaces customers enjoy and employees are proud to work in. Her secret to delivering grade-A projects? Her clients trust her. She is passionate about delivering design that works. Over 250 retail and restaurant projects later and she is hungry for more. From small scale regional restaurants like Punch Pizza to large scale master planning developments like Central Park Commons, her goal is to improve the customer experience. That’s the competitive advantage, she says. When she’s not designing, Natina is busy riding her bike long distances – she’s completed Minnesota’s MS150 10 times. Proving she is the ultimate competitor. One that fights for her clients and their brand.
