Frunchroom, the "Italian Fusion Resto-Bar" that gave Downtown Montreal Chicago-style pizzas and pastas in late 2013, is almost set to reopen. Principal Mohamad Turkieh had to close the restaurant in August after a cashflow problem. Turkieh told Eater Montreal at the time:
We had a big difficulty with staff and sales were not good. We opened in a dead season. We had delays with construction and were supposed to open in October but opened in December. January, February and March were dead. That was a big challenge. So we're restructuring with new partners and hope to open soon.
One indicator of Frunchroom's resurgence is the fact that Turkieh is on the lookout for new staff - namely a general manager.
