Incorporated in 1996 by Jason Walder, Wathco has established itself as the leader in commercial renovations and remodels.  What sets us apart from our competition is that we can pull permits in all 50 states as well as having a dedicated traveling construction crew on all our projects.  At Wathco, we are well versed in the projects/brands we work on prior to starting any project, which helps contribute to an on-time completion.

They are a true extension of our development department and always have our best interests in mind. Their on-site personnel treat the projects like they owned them. There is never a short cut in quality, the pricing is always just what they said it will be with no surprise change orders, and they are 100% on time.”

  • I just completed a tour of Hardees remodeled restaurants in the Southeast and I wanted to thank you for the terrific work Wathco has been doing on the Hardees Restaurant remodel program. The quality of your work was exceptional and the restaurants look great. You continually show a “can do” attitude no matter what problems you encountered and managed to finish on time and on budget. Your dedication is one of the reasons we have had so much success with our remodel program. You and your company are a please to work with and I am looking forward to working with you in the future.
