Endeavour Partnership has advised a well-known Boro player on his new venture.
Dimi Konstantopoulos has recently opened a Greek restaurant in Middlesbrough with his business partner, Nikos Pitsoulis, and with the help of Endeavour Partnership’s commercial property team, ‘Great Greek’ launched last week.
The goalkeeper has invested £250,000 in the Linthorpe Road restaurant which will create 25 jobs and has also worked with Anderson Barrowcliff Chartered Accountants on various aspects of the business’s development.
Endeavour Partnership’s commercial property team has advised Dimi on elements such as the lease and terms for the restaurant and the completion of a second lease for a further unit.
The legal firm’s commercial property team is one of the most experienced in the North East and was recently placed in the top tier of the Legal 500’s rankings. Simon Wake, partner and head of commercial property, was named as an elite ‘leading lawyer’ on the list of the Legal 500’s 2016 guide to outstanding lawyers nationwide.
Natalie Kay from Endeavour Partnership, who assisted on the restaurant project, said: “Dimi’s new venture is another addition to Middlesbrough’s vibrant and diverse bar and restaurant scene.
“It’s in an ideal location, close to the town’s university and promises to offer something new. It’s been a really interesting project to work with Dimi and the team on and we look forward to seeing it become a success.”
Dimi said: “Opening a new restaurant is obviously quite a change of area for me.
“I couldn’t have done it without a team of exceptionally patient and professional individuals to guide me every step of the way to ensure the restaurant is a great success from the very beginning.”
James Dale from Anderson Barrowcliff said: “We have worked with Dimi and Nikos through every step of their journey in turning the idea of a Greek restaurant in reality.
“Everyone at Anderson Barrowcliff is delighted with their achievements after seeing the amount of hard work and dedication they have put into this operation.”
