The Challenge

Rigsbys faced the challenge of redesigning its restaurant interiors to create a comfortable and exciting ambiance that resonated with the essence of smoked burgers, wings, and grill cuisine. The goal was to differentiate the Boiling Springs and Spartanburg locations while ensuring both retained the commonality of Rigsbys’ culinary identity.
