Our Friends

We feel very lucky to call the people represented on this page our friends. It is not often that one can take on a monumental task without the help of friends and family, with our project, Restaurant North, we were blessed as both friends and family helped us along the way...

 

STEPHEN WILKES

The world renowned photographer who so graciously blessed us with his masterpieces. Stephen is a friend but now also part of our family, thanks to Stephen and Betty. It's hard to imagine that it all started over a glass of Chateau d'Yquem...

ProCIBO


UNT-dining-room.jpg

Founded in 2010, ProCIBO (prō/CHEE-bō) is a project management consulting firm specializing in restaurant openings and restaurant finance.  From budgeting and site selection through design and construction and into opening and operating the restaurant, we work every step of the way with chefs, owners, developers and restaurateurs to open their restaurants on time and on budget.  Our mission is to be an unyielding extension of our clients, functioning with their very best interest at heart and upholding the shared standards of excellence in the execution of our mutual goals. 

Whether it’s fine dining or fast casual, the first of its kind or the fifth of many, opening a restaurant is a complex process.  Writing a business plan, forecasting financials, structuring a responsible investment framework and conceptualizing the restaurant are all essential, but harmonizing physical design with financial control while managing a team of architects, designers, engineers and contractors requires fluency in different trade languages specific to restaurants. 

With over 50 years of collective experience in finance, operations, design and construction, we have a vast and versatile repertoire of knowledge to leverage in order to bring our clients’ projects to life.  We take great pride in diligently driving development schedules forward and managing overall workflow – without sacrificing quality – to make sure our clients’ restaurants sing when they open.  Our gauge of success is the level of gratitude and appreciation we feel from our clients and their teams after a successful restaurant opening.  Some of ProCIBO’s recent opening projects include Marta, Alder and North End Grill.  Recent business plan clients include Flex Mussels, SEAMORE’s and The Warwick Hotel.
