PROFESSIONAL SERVICES & SYMPOSIUMS
Experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry is a rare and valuable commodity. Unfortunately, the bulk of the experience for the independent restaurant often comes solely from within that of his/her own restaurant. If you’ve ever watched Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, You’ve seen some extreme examples of operators who are in over their heads because they followed a dream, a passion, a family tradition without any formal training, education, or significant management experience in other well run restaurants.
Even if your restaurant doesn’t qualify as a Kitchen Nightmare, hiring an experienced restaurant consultant to identify your restaurants weaknesses, engineer your menu, and help you improve many aspects of your business may be a significantly beneficial investment.
The Local Merchant Solutions Consorsium provides a vast network of resources. The availability for restaurant consulting varies. The Consorsium works with a selective short list of clients at a time. The process is highly selective.
The performance improvement plans are focused on in-depth assessments of the operation and service details, hiring and staff development, standard procedures, culinary quality, inventory and cost controls, menu design, competitive analysis, pricing strategy, web design, social and digital strategies.
