2900 Ranch Trail — Del Frisco’s Headquarters

This 35,000 SF single-story office building was build for Cheddar’s Casual Cafe.  Billingsley Company beat a tight construction deadline and the entire project was completed in 190 days, from lease execution to tenant move in.  The project began in December 2012 and lost 23 days in the first 60 due to rain and snow. Even with weather delays, the Cheddar’s team moved in on time.

“We loved the challenge to deliver on this incredibly tight schedule. We just wanted to show it could be done and we are the ones to do it,” said Lucy Billingsley, Partner. “Cheddars has a leading edge office space and start to finish it took just over 6 months to design, build, and start moving in. Irving is also a smart and easy city to work with. They really helped us get this done.”

3 years later, Cheddar’s was bought by Darden Restaurants and had to move their corporate office to Florida.  Within 60 days a lease was signed with Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group.

“This is an incredible opportunity to acquire a space that aligns with the growth plans for Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group,” said Norman Abdallah, CEO of Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group. “The quality of the space, large test kitchen, and proximity to our current office were all important factors in our decision.”
