With its architecturally unique, authentic and eclectic shopping and dining offerings, Las Olas Boulevard sets its standards high when putting on its public face.

Described as "the terrestrial heart and soul of Broward County" by Fodor's travel guide, the one mile strip that runs from Andrews Boulevard east to A1A has been a very busy workplace for one prominent general contractor, RCC Associates, a Deerfield Beach firm known nationally for its construction of restaurants, retail, hospitality, spas and country clubs.  

With six Las Olas restaurants to its credit, including Cheesecake Factory - One of more than 50 locations - RCC has built nationwide for the California-based chain - the woman-owned construction firm recently completed an addition for Timpano, and Italian theme Chophouse, and currently is finishing The Grille 401 Las Olas, a new 340-seat restaurant owned by real estate magnate Jeffrey R. Anderson of Cincinnati.

A new 8,367 square-foot concept restaurant, The Grille 401, according to RCC President and CEO, Beverly Raphael, is a showcase project encompassing a ground floor and mezzanine level, involving elaborate millwork and wine cellar features.

"Restaurant buildout construction is a niche in which we excel," said Raphael, who last year became the second woman to be inducted into the prestigious Nova Southeastern University Huizenga Business Hall of Fame.  "We are closing in on 350 restaurant projects, which puts us in a very elite class."

RCC, which has built more than 1,500 projects in 27 states over 40-plus years, has a long history along the iconic Las Olas District and Fort Lauderdale, including buildouts for the newly completed Valentinos, Morton's, Benihana (two locations), Mezzanote, Capital Grille, BurgerFi, Panera Bread, La Salsa, Indigo Palms, Zucca, Red Coral, Underwraps, Big Pink and The Grape.

Most recent to join the RCC list is Kaluz Waterfront Grill and Bar, a 258-seat upscale steakhouse located on the Intracoastal Waterway and Commercial Boulevard expected to be completed at the end of 2012.

Raphael, who took on the leadership role following the death of her husband, Richard, has taken RCC Associates to new heights in just 13 years, growing the business from $19 million to $105 million in 2007.  

The firm, which weathered the economic downturn in the last few years, has added dozens of new jobs in 2012, including a very challenging and time sensitive project to complete the innovative 43,000 square foot, eight screen iPic Theaters at Mizner Park in Boca Raton.

"This is a very good sign, that businesses are spending again, building new locations and renovateing/updating existing operations," said Raphael.  "As a contractor, we are typically the first to see the beginnings of growth."
