It all started with a dream. The Catholic Diocese of Peoria had a vision to create a space where they could serve more people in the community. They developed plans but needed a team that could provide expert remodeling services to expand their current space and turn an old warehouse building into a high-functioning soup kitchen.


With blueprints in hand, Kelley Construction got to work. Our team began restoring and remodeling the warehouse by constructing walls for different rooms, implementing drains and vents for cooking areas, and even adding finishing touches to make sure the space looked exactly as envisioned. We applied our years of experience in commercial remodeling to exceed expectations and complete the soup kitchen in a timely manner.


Within a few months of the project’s inception, Kelley Construction transformed what was once just an old warehouse into the following:

  • Kitchen with full appliances, drainage system, and ample countertops/cabinets
  • Storage room to keep all food dry and secure until needed
  • Serving room for workers to provide meals efficiently
  • Oversized seating area to hold 10 dining tables
