We recently celebrated 25 years of business at the Maurer office with wonderful friends, clients and colleagues from near and far. And of course, no party would be complete without the delicious beer from local breweries we’ve designed (Trophy, Brewery Bhavana, Resident Culture, and White Street) and the always tasty food from Empire Eats. It was a festive event and reminded us of the privilege it has been to serve and work alongside so many great individuals in the city of Raleigh and across the state of North Carolina. We look forward to the next 25 years!

The Benchwarmers tenant space is under construction in the Transfer Co. Food Hall.
There is a large wood-burning oven that will be visible from the seating area. The kitchen is open to the surrounding space so the whole process, from start to finish, will be visible to customers. We can't wait to see the space come to life!
