Grandio Group Acquires Iconic Gibbys Restaurants
The Grandio Group announced the acquisition of Gibbys restaurants, a leading reference in Quebec for fine seafood and delicious grilled meats. The successful upscale tradition of Gibbys will remain the same and will be supported by the recognized know-how of the Grandio Group.
The announcement last month stated that Gibbys became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Grandio Group, which will maintain the management team and the current employees of the two restaurants, located respectively in Saint-Sauveur and Old Montreal.
The founders, brothers Gibby and Allan Rosenberg, were true foodies who traveled the world discovering world-class restaurants. Carefully curating the ideas from their finds, they opened their first restaurant in Saint-Sauveur in 1969. Their initial success boosted their confidence and prompted them to open their second location in Old Montreal in 1972.
For over 50 years, Gibbys has offered the finest seafood, including fresh, succulent oysters, a wide array of fresh fish, and its expertly aged and carefully grilled steaks.
The group of passionate Quebec restaurant entrepreneurs says it is thrilled to welcome Gibbys and its employees to the Grandio Group. “Gibbys is an iconic brand, known as a premier celebration venue and a popular destination for those who want to enjoy high-quality steak and seafood. We will continue to operate both Gibbys locations with the same care and attention to detail to honour its founders and keep their story alive,” said Jean Bédard, President and CEO of Grandio.
Entering this partnership with the Grandio Group is a natural fit, as was the acquisition of Moishes and its distribution brands in 2018. In fact, the official reopening of Moishes in Montreal’s Quartier international is still scheduled for early summer 2023.
The company also offers event catering, food trucks and ready to cook meals. For more information, visit www.grandio.com.
