First Vision

Every restaurant begins with an idea.



Solve problems before they arise.



A restaurant is never done.


We Open
You may open 1-3 restaurants in your lifetime, we open hundreds. This is our bread and butter and we know how to make this a seamless process. 

We Design
Good design goes beyond eclectic tables and funky lighting. We design to make your space not only look incredible but also to perform and profit.

We Develop
We work with you to find a space for a concept or a concept for a space. Partnering with both developers and chefs builds a partnership for success.

We Fix
Improving upon an existing restaurant can often times be as challenging as starting from scratch. We rebuild, reassess, and rediscover the ways in which your business can be reimagined.

What I paid RealFood was some of the best money I spent on the entire project. They made that money back times ten on savings and value. And I would do it again in a second.

Chef Nookie Postal, Commonwealth Cambridge

RealFood took us under their wings, working on food costs, staffing/labor costs, reorganizing kitchens, redesigning menus and much more. Over the past year, our sales have soared and costs have lowered! We are forever grateful.

Patricia Gaudreau, Blount

I am extremely happy that we chose to work with RealFood on our restaurant’s expansion. Not only were they knowledgeable and experienced, they were incredibly responsive to our needs, and really became an integral part of our team.
