EnviroStruct, LLC Contractor Builds Diverse Commercial Portfolio, Enduring Relationships


Even in the best of times, it’s challenging for most small general contractors to land multi-million dollar commercial projects, since they usually lack the expertise and manpower to deliver them. But so far, that hasn’t been a problem for EnviroStruct, LLC, based in Bonita Springs.

  • LaMotta’s Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria

    In a town where pizza-and-pasta restaurants are plentiful, finding affordable, authentic Italian cuisine is akin to a game of chance. There’s really no way to know if you’ve spent your dining dollars on a winner or a loser until it’s too late and all too often, the house comes out ahead. If that’s the case, chances are you haven’t been to LaMotta’s Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria in south Fort Myers.

  • Reuben’s Smokehouse

    One thing that Arvey Krise and her son, Reuben Sliva, have discovered as restaurateurs is that home cooking never goes out of style. Case in point: Reuben’s Smokehouse, located at 11506 South Cleveland Avenue, next to Dunkin’s Diamonds in Fort Myers.

  • Rib City

    Famous for its award-winning ribs and barbecue, Rib City is gaining recognition for another reason these days: Longevity. In May, the family-owned, national chain of barbecue restaurants turned 25 — a rare distinction that places it among Southwest Florida’s restaurant elite.

  • Cape Cod Fish Company

    From the day it opened last fall, Cape Cod Fish Company (CCFC) has attracted two types of customers: (1) New Englanders who miss the clam shacks back home and (2) seafood lovers who had no idea what they’d been missing until their first visit. Either way, chef Joseph Faria’s tiny south Fort Myers restaurant has been a big hit with customers craving fresh, cold-water seafood.

  • Kearns Restaurant Group’s New Dining Destinations

    In the history of Lee County, only a handful of local restaurateurs have simultaneously owned and operated multiple restaurants in this market (think Prawnbroker Group, Paul and Craig Peden, and the Phelan family, among others). While most have evolved as a result of slow, steady growth, Kearns Restaurant Group (KRG) has burst onto the scene, fueled by innovative ideas for new restaurants and bars, and the resources to develop, build and manage them.

  • Tom, Dick & Harry’s American Grill

    Sometimes, the best indication of a great restaurant isn’t what’s on the menu, but the number of cars in the parking lot. If so, that’s a very good sign for Tom, Dick & Harry’s American Grill in south Fort Myers, where the parking lot has been near capacity since opening day several months ago.

  • Broadway Factory

    There is no shortage of frozen yogurt shops these days, particularly in Southwest Florida. Given the hot climate and consumers’ growing demand for healthful alternatives to traditional ice-cream, the appeal is understandable. But with frozen dessert franchises and locally-operated shops continuing to proliferate, one has to wonder if there’s room for even one more.

  • Square 1 Burgers & Bar

    Although the term suggests a setback of sorts, finding yourself back at Square 1 means something far different to burger lovers, namely an outstanding meal.
    Located in Page Field Commons in Fort Myers, Square 1 Burgers & Bar is unlike any other casual-dining restaurant on Florida’s west coast and far superior to a typical burger joint. Local diners know that now, but weren’t quite sure what to make of the place when it opened in 2012. Since then, its unique appeal has drawn a growing fan base.

  • Capt’n Fishbones Seafood Grill

    If you’re looking for a place to have lunch or dinner in Lee County, The Shell Factory & Nature Park may not immediately spring to mind. But that’s likely to change after a visit to Capt’n Fishbones Seafood Grill, a restaurant that seems to be hiding in plain sight within the iconic North Fort Myers attraction.

  • Firestone

    If you’re going to name a restaurant after one of the great inventors of the 20th century, it behooves you to be a bit inventive yourself. In downtown Fort Myers, the owners of The Firestone have outdone themselves, from concept to cuisine.
