The Grandio Group has acquired Gibbys restaurants in Quebec, Canada, for an undisclosed sum.

Gibbys was founded by brothers Gilbert Rosenberg and Allan Rosenberg and opened its first restaurant in Saint-Sauveur, Quebec, in 1969. A second location was opened in Ol Montreal in 1972.

The restaurant offers seafood, including oysters and a wide array of fish, as well as grilled steaks.

Grandio Group brings together Quebec restaurateurs in a single company and has more than 3,800 employees in more than 55 locations under various brands.

These brands include La Cage – Brasserie Sportive, Cochon Dingue, Lapin Sauté, Ciel !, Paris Grill, Café du Monde, Crémy Pâtisserie, Moishes, and now Gibbys.

It also offers event catering, food trucks, and ready-to-cook meals. 

The existing management team and employees working at two restaurants in Saint-Sauveur and Old Montreal will be retained as part of the deal.

Grandio president and CEO Jean Bédard said: “We are 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.”
