"BUILD IT Toronto is fantastic from start to finish and beyond. They built our restaurant during the pandemic, which wasn't easy, and operate with honesty, integrity, quality, transparency, accountability, punctuality, loyalty and friendliness. I really don't believe you could get a better business and group of people to work. Everyone at BUILD IT Toronto is fantastic.
Building a restaurant is an extremely stressful thing. During a pandemic, you can just multiply that stress several times over. But they've got your back. Every step of the way.
The decision to work with them was definitely one of the best I've ever made in my life. I'm very impressed with how their business is run and the quality that you see not just in the finished product but in all the people involved in the project. I am so grateful we had them with us, and I look forward to when we can build again with them!
Thank you BUILD IT Toronto! You guys are the best!"
