Selecting an experienced general contractor or construction manager is the most important decision a restaurant owner can make as they head into a new construction, renovation or expansion project. Restaurants are fast-paced and complex projects where contractor expertise in plumbing, lighting, HVAC and kitchen equipment is invaluable to the success of a project and on-time completion.

ICI is known throughout the Chicago area and beyond for our restaurant portfolio and for our talented team of restaurant construction experts. In recent years, ICI has completed more than $100 million in restaurant construction projects across the country. Our portfolio includes 10 high profile restaurants in two square miles of downtown Chicago. ICI has the internal resources, a solid restaurant subcontractor base and the market-specific knowledge to complete projects ranging in scope from individual family-owned and operated eateries to large-scale national roll-outs of franchised restaurants.
