For Pipirins Carne Asada Restaurant – Downtown San Diego
Commercial real estate broker Jim Rinehart, who specializes in personal relationships, referred restauranteurs Gerry and Roberto Orozco to APS General Contractors. The Orozco brothers, who are originally from Guadalajara Mexico, were looking to duplicate a successful restaurant concept from Mexico and introduce it to the United States.
The brothers approached APS prior to finalizing the specific location, design, and permitting of their restaurant concept. They hadn’t settled on a space but knew that the concept would work well in San Diego. They were also seeking a restaurant contractor with whom they could have a one-to-one relationship to ensure that their vision would come to life. Gerry and Roberto Orozco chose APS because they learned that this is exactly how APS adds value.
Pipirins Restaurant Design & Inspiration:
In order to be certain that APS fully understood the restaurant concept from the unique flavors of the food to the home style ambiance of the dining space, the brothers flew down APS President Jamie Accetta to Guadalajara Mexico to tour the existing restaurant inspiration. APS and the brothers knew that for the restaurant vision to flourish in the United States, APS would literally need to be at the table from concept to completion.
After settling on a location in downtown San Diego at 531 Broadway Ave, APS, the Orozco brothers and Jaime Partners Design went to work on the design and permitting of the restaurant. As the space is located in a historic building with low ceilings and residential units above, unique constructability challenges were presented and overcome by APS.

Another challenge was how to take the restaurant renderings and design concept to construction reality. APS was able to fulfill the Orozco brothers’ vision by researching and delivering all the unique and specific interior finishes and installation methods. These distinctive finishes create a warm atmosphere in the dining space of traditional ranch style Mexico.
When looking for a contractor to work on my first restaurant in the United States, APS came highly recommended. From beginning to end, Jamie and his team were organized, responsive, budget-minded, and always overcame the challenges of the project. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire APS for future restaurants and cannot thank them enough for streamlining a complicated process.” – Gerry Orozco, Owner
