Restaurant Construction - St. Louis


We’re a St. Louis-based general contractor focused exclusively on small and medium-sized commercial construction projects. We are known for both ground up and interior finishes in our areas of expertise including restaurants, retail, and specialized builds such as fitness, religious institutions, event spaces, educational facilities, and medical and office spaces.

“We understand how important it is for any business to get open and start making money; that’s why we’re laser-focused on getting your doors open.”

What We Build


First Watch

Spiegelglass prides itself on longstanding client relationships, and for over a decade we have built more than a dozen locations for First Watch, each in an aggressive timeframe and often completed ahead of schedule.


Kohler Showroom

Spiegelglass was charged with the crucial task of maintaining brand standards and design integrity for the first KOHLER showrooms in St. Louis and Indianapolis.


Omega Watch

High-end watches demand a high-end storefront, and Omega’s Frontenac location is no exception.



Time is money, and during restaurant builds, you’ve got to get it done and get it done right. Spiegelglass understands that; they were attentive, observant, and made sure everything was taken care of. Other builders would disappear on me after a project was over, but Spiegelglass took care of even the little things I needed done after we opened. Follow-through, honesty and good workmanship are key in construction… it’s a rare combination but Spiegelglass has it.
