Restaurant Consulting Services

Top Services

Why do companies really hire  a consultant?  Simply speaking they want a consultant to provide the following needs and wants:

  • cost management (Negotiator)
  • more horsepower (Turbocharger)
  • specialized skills not in-house (Pinchhitter)
  • fresh set of eyes (Muse)
  • emotional and political buffer (Scapegoat)

I can and have played the above roles for my clients.  A simple call from you (Doug Bates (214) 207-5060), and I can go into more detail on how  I will customize my services based on your specific needs and wants. However, if you want a real boost I highly recommend the following TOP 3 SERVICES for your consideration.

  1. Mobile App Development - GOAL: personalize your "Brand " on  the cell phones of your customers in just 3-4 weeks. 
  2. Optimize Supply Chain - GOAL:  immediate cost reductions and build foundational core of Cost Management, Continuity of Supply, Brand Protection, and Food Safety.
  3. Concept Evaluation - GOAL: make your concept efficient and effective in the short and long run by evaluating menu, staff attitude, management attitude and motivation, financials, point of difference, feel, marketing, ambience, location, price value, service, compassionate leadership, product quality, etc.
  4. Menu Engineering -  GOAL: increase profitability per guest by evaluating the profitability and popularity of menu items and how these two factors influence the placement of these items on a menu
