Synergy Restaurant Consultants is proud to announce the opening of Que Pasa Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar in Rapid City, South Dakota.
Synergy, commissioned by local restaurateur Bob Fuchs, was tasked with the challenge of bringing Mexican food to Rapid City. This vision came to life with the grand opening of Que Pasa, a Mexican kitchen offering a friendly dining experience, breathtaking décor, and delicious cuisine. Committed to serving fresh food using exceptional ingredients, over 90% of Que Pasa’s menu is made from scratch. Classic Mexican dishes such as fajitas and enchiladas are elevated with handmade tortillas. Salads, and other traditional American foods infused with a bit of Mexican flavor round out the menu. Que Pasa has over 52 varieties of tequila available for use in its handcrafted signature cocktails. A tequila bottle chandelier is the focal point in a quirky, custom-designed and playful atmosphere unlike anything else in Rapid City. “It’s a truly gorgeous space,” says owner Bob Fuchs.
Starting with a discovery tour and initial restaurant conceptualization in late 2012, Synergy Restaurant Consultants has been involved in every step of the creation of Que Pasa. Leveraging the consulting team’s comprehensive expert knowledge, Synergy designed Que Pasa’s custom kitchen and interior, conducted restaurant financial feasibility studies, streamlined operations, and developed the impressive food and beverage menus. Two years of work culminated with Synergy’s pre-opening team spending 3 weeks in Rapid City to train the new Que Pasa staff and assist with the grand opening.
With an outstanding menu and prime location just off of Rapid City’s Main Street Square, Que Pasa is a much anticipated asset to the local community. “The truth is, Que Pasa is going to be that magnet that will draw people to the downtown area. It will make Rapid City a destination, ” said Dean Small, Founder & Managing Partner of Synergy.
Rapid City, population 67,956, is the second largest city in South Dakota. The area, known as the Black Hills, is a popular tourist destination and home of national landmark Mt. Rushmore.
