We are honored to be a part of FOX and Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back: Save Our Town to help rebuild local restaurants devastated by two “100-year floods” in 2016 and 2018 in Ellicott City, MD.
Due to these unfortunate events, the Ellicott City community has struggled to rebuild local businesses that the disasters caused. The celebrity chef himself, Gordon Ramsay, accompanied by his team of experts came to help rebuild three local businesses. We were honored to take on the role of designing and installing the outdoor lighting for two local restaurants, Little Market Café and Phoenix Brewing Company.
Since we specialize in the design, installation, and maintenance of outdoor illumination systems, we knew what we were doing! Our team was originally approached by producers due to the quality work done day in and day out by our Baltimore team.
For the Little Market Café, the rear outdoor seating area was transformed by a local landscape company, including a stone patio and fire pit. We did the finishing touches by installing bistro lighting to help complete the space and allow the café to have guests enjoy the space long after the sun goes down.
For Phoenix Brewing Company, a local artist was commissioned to paint a large mural on the exterior of the historic stone building, depicting Ellicott City’s rebirth. To ensure this mural would stand out after the sun sets, we installed bistro lighting in the alley between two buildings for any passersby to enjoy!
“We are truly honored that OLP could play a part in the rebuilding of Ellicott City, with Gordon Ramsay and his team,” explains Tim O’Brien, owner of OLP of Baltimore. “As a fellow local small business owner, I can only imagine the sleepless nights that these owners endured as a result of these natural disasters, not once but twice. The owners and this historic town deserved this makeover and we are glad we could play a small part with this incredible team and community.”
