Just like any business venture, a successful restaurant starts with a viable concept and involves dedicated planning. You may have an idea of what you’d like to be (i.e. a steakhouse, an Asian restaurant, a pizza joint, etc.) but what will set you apart from the rest?
Hiring a professional consulting group is a good first step. We work with individuals who want to follow their passion for food and service and help them develop their ideas into a thriving reality. Some of the ways we accomplish this are to look at consumer and industry trends, the target market (demographics and psychographics), and current voids in the marketplace.
Once a concept is finalized, the real planning begins. We have a comprehensive list of items for you to consider in this planning stage, including: decor and environment, service style, server and management training, marketing and advertising, capital budgets, menu direction and pricing, sales and expense pro formas, and more. There is a lot to consider and to do before opening a restaurant, but skimping on the planning often leads to expensive mistakes or even failure.
Let us help you achieve your goals. Our combined experience will help your shape your ideas into a viable concept, and will ensure you are not overlooking the details that may hinder your success.
