Restaurant & Hospitality
Our strategy is simple – understand the market, ask the right questions to help you formulate your goals, then apply informed creative thinking to help you reach those goals.
As your counsel, we are ready to help anticipate the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead and ensure you are ready to respond and thrive.
We’ll be your secret sauce
In today’s ultra-competitive food and beverage marketplace, where guests are sophisticated and business challenges come from both expected and unexpected places, it is imperative that foodie entrepreneurs, restaurant groups, executive chefs, craft brewers, hotel operators and investors engage a strong team of advisors to limit bumps along the road to success.
Location selection, start-up capital, strong brand identity, consistent service, partner and employee relations, and a well-defined and committed mission are all keys to a thriving venture. Without these pieces in place, you may find your establishment among the 80% of restaurants that are forced to shut their doors before their 5th anniversary.
