From the time they could work, brothers Norm and Eric Sugrue chose the restaurant industry. Working for numerous restaurant corporations in every position from line cook to general manager, Eric & Norman carved their individual pathways in the industry. They didn’t realize at the the time, but the skills they had developed separately – Norm’s emphasis on food creation and preparation and Eric’s strength in staff management and customer relations-primed them for success in their own ventures.
In 1997, Eric and Norman opened the doors to the Big Fish Grill in Rehoboth Beach, DE, their first of many successful concepts. They adopted a simple philosophy: to provide the best food, the best service and the best atmosphere to their guests with customer satisfaction their top priority.
After the unrivaled success of the Big Fish Grill, many successful ventures followed encompassing what the Big Fish Restaurant Group is today. The success is forever attributed to Eric & Norman’s mother, Geneva Sugrue. She was not only their mother, but their friend who always supported and believed in her children’s dreams and ambitions and whose inspiration and culinary talents made these dreams reality.
