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 25 years of 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 Paowalla, Itani Ramen, Marta, and North End Grill. Recent business plan clients include Ajjuma, Flex Mussels, SEAMORE’s and The Warwick Hotel.
