What They’re Saying

“Developing new restaurants in new areas is what I thought we were great at, until we partnered up with Andrew and the team at BCD. As it turns out, it’s what they’re great at. The experience, organization, and contacts they bring to our projects are just unmatched. The information and insight they exchange throughout the process of finding, securing, and developing a location has made our expansion less of a headache and even more importantly, it has allowed us to re-focus on what we actually do best: operating the restaurants.”

John Simeonidis
Co-Founder
Bareburger

“BCD has been an indispensable partner in our recent growth. They handle the nitty-gritty while not losing sight of the big picture, are always sensitive to cost, and they 100% do whatever they say they’re going to do. In addition, they are friendly and helpful in myriad other ways and are a pleasure to work with. I feel like our partnership with BCD is a competitive advantage for Dos Toros.”

Leo Kremer

“No matter how much experience you have building around the world, restaurant construction in New York City is a whole different animal. BCD proved to be an invaluable partner for us by providing insight into facing those challenges. While every town has its own nuances, the penalty for error in New York City is massive. BCD truly helped us mitigate that risk.”

Joe Abbruzese
VP of Construction & Facilities
Benihana

“BCD plays an extremely important role in the expansion of Mexicue. They opened our Times Square location on-time, on-budget, and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. We are now in the midst of our next project and we are thrilled to have BCD by our side again. Additionally, BCD is an exceptional value-added partner, having introduced us to other leaders in the restaurant industry who have made our growth and development significantly more successful.”

David Schillace
Founder
Mexicue

“Finding premium locations for a sandwich shop in the largest city in America can be tough, but when we hired BCD to help find our first New York City sites, they handled the entire process with ease. The BCD real estate team was extremely knowledgeable, hardworking, and familiar with the local market. They made us feel comfortable throughout the process and were always there with a quick response to any questions or issues that arose. BCD is an extremely impressive company and we look forward to future projects with them.”

“BCD has been an important part of our team as we have expanded. We were hesitant to bring on a Project Manager; however, Andrew proved himself to be invaluable to our growth at the outset of our first project together. BCD has helped us stay on budget, on time, and is effective at holding everyone accountable for their jobs along the way. We are now in the midst of our second project with BCD, and we cannot imagine building a restaurant without them – not only because of their exceptional services but because Andrew has become a trusted advisor to us on wide-ranging issues. Andrew has great knowledge of and connections in the restaurant industry, and has provided exceptional support as we have built our brand.”

Jeffrey Lefcourt

“The process for developing a Minus 5 Ice Bar is nowhere close to typical hospitality construction. On top of that, try doing it in the main lobby entrance of one of the busiest hotels in the world! We couldn’t have asked for anyone better than BCD to handle this task. They managed the construction complexities with tremendous skill, as well as navigating the personalities and politics of such a high-profile project with great dexterity.”

Andrew’s greatest asset to Crunch was his understanding of the brand.”

Doug Levine

“BCD has done a fantastic job kick-starting our latest phase of development. To go from 0 to 60, as fast as we wanted to, in such a short period of time, required us to bring in outside support. BCD’s ability to bring time-tested protocols and discipline to the development process was invaluable and, moreover, it allowed us to keep our corporate office lean and the associated overhead low.”

Chris Artinian
CEO
Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill

“Andrew was charged with the responsibility of standardizing key elements of our international rollout. In addition, Andrew was responsible for ensuring a seamless transition from construction to grand opening. To this day, almost all of the relationships and systems Andrew established are still in place and have proven extremely valuable.”

Joe Pozzuoli Jr.
Founder
Joe’s Pizza of Greenwich Village

“In the 1980s, we found our first location through a classified ad in the Village Voice and built it using a crew of unemployed artists. Things have gotten more complicated. Embarking on a restaurant project today without an experienced project management team is sheer madness. In fact, it was crazy back then, we just didn’t know about BCD. Andrew and his team run a professional, efficient job from start to finish. We’ve been using BCD for years and will continue to do so.”

Ken Sofer
Co-Founder
Blockheads Burritos

“We were extremely impressed with the manner in which BCD handled the re-design and renovation of Petaluma. Our restaurant is 25 years old, with very loyal regular guests who view the restaurant as a 2nd home. BCD effected the necessary changes while ensuring the essence of Petaluma was not compromised. Moreover, the project was on-time and on-budget and they scheduled the construction so that we could stay open for the duration.”

Anne Isaak
Co-Founder
Petaluma and Elio’s
