About

It’s rare to find a team of experts that can help you develop a concept, open a restaurant, reposition a brand or streamline an existing operation.

What makes Restaurant Group so special?

Is it that each of us has over 20 years of experience in the restaurant/hospitality industry?
Is it the passion each of us has for finding innovative solutions for customers?

It’s all that and much more. The bottom line is that we’ve been in your shoes, whether you’re an owner, manager, chef or donut maker. We’ve all worked in different facets of the restaurant industry, and additionally we have our own special areas of expertise.

So whether you need help from the ground up, or just need a new menu, server training programs, marketing and advertising strategies, or assistance with your bookkeeping and accounting, you’ve come to the right place.

Let us help you make your venture a success. Although we have done projects in California, and as far away as Idaho, our focus is here in the Northwest, namely Oregon and Washington.
