Our Team

Running a restaurant is challenging, but managing a restaurant hall is even more demanding. SDG’s unique strength lies in the structure of our team. Our expertise extends from management to design to the creation of new meeting spaces. With our solid industry experience and insights, we create a complex restaurant mix that is both successful and profitable.

Currently, there are no defined competitors to SDG’s operations. We offer a distinct approach where we see the project through to fruition, from profitability assessments to space management. With innovation and expertise, we turn ideas into reality.

The work from our previous restaurant hall projects has provided us with invaluable lessons and established efficient processes. Our experience and competence in the restaurant industry warrant a deep understanding of the complexities when developing these spaces. We possess the knowledge to refine our concepts based on changing consumer preferences and technological advancements. This gives us the flexibility to create on-trend concepts with the promise of success and longevity.

As the creators and owners of SDG, we have been involved in projects such as K25 on Kungsgatan in Stockholm, Teatern at Ringen in Södermalm, and the newly established S2 at the Westfield Mall of Scandinavia in Solna.
