From the start, restaurant and kitchen construction have been a significant part of our portfolio. Our clients and projects include national and regional restaurant operators as well as independent operators.  Many of these relationships are rooted in such extensive history, that clients come to us in pre-planning stages to assist with budgeting, lease negotiations, and much more.  Our relationships with restaurateurs have taken us as far south as Virginia, and as far north as New Hampshire.  We truly love this work.


Fortunato Construction Group has built more than 100 new restaurants
and has completed dozens of renovations. 

One of the ways we measure our success is by how often our clients choose to work with Fortunato Construction Group again and again on future projects. Over the years, we’ve worked with dozens of clients on multiple projects, from renovations and expansions to new construction. 

This considerable repeat business reflects how carefully attuned we are to the concerns of our clients. We anticipate challenges in advance and provide guidance they can trust. Our team is experienced at navigating the process of the planning, design and construction and can offer guidance on what to expect, recommendations for keeping the project on track, and the leadership to ensure a successful project.

The following is a representative list of restaurant clients that entrust us with their projects over and over. It is not exhaustive, but is indicative of our depth and breadth of experience.

With your personal dedication and commitment and with the outstanding performance of your firm, this project was a great success. Your commitment to quality on-time completion and client relations is invaluable and greatly appreciated.
