World NZ! - World famous in NZ Café

World famous in NZ CaféWorld Famous in NZ is a slogan all kiwis will be familiar with due to its long association with the L&P brand of softdrink. Located next to the most photographed town icon - the famous L&P bottle itself standing 5.8m tall, the World Famous in NZ Café was built to capture the pure essence of L&P. Building on this brand association and surrounded by history, the new World Famous in NZ Café and Bar in Paeroa will make kiwis and tourists alike feel instantly at home.

Resene Zylone Sheen low sheen acrylic was specified for the exterior Insulclad sponge finish walls and interior broadwall areas, to give a lower gloss look than Resene Lumbersider. Brush and roller application were used on the exterior to achieve the world famous finish. A Resene Uracryl 403 Clear was specified on the bar top to minimise damage from daily contact during normal trading conditions.

The colour scheme was confirmed with confidence using a Resene RenderRite rendered image that illustrated how the building would look painted in the specified colours.

If you are planning to be in the Paeroa region, the gourmet L&P ice-cream comes highly recommended.
