Restaurant, Food Service and Food Business Consulting
One timely idea, fresh eyes on a challenging situation or a creative marketing or operational suggestion can make the difference of tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars of net earnings or cost savings over the course of a year or a few years.
Flavors Consults in each of these business situations:
- Launching a new business beginning with writing a client driven Business Plan lucidly defining the business’s mission, business proposition and development strategy including realistic and attainable financial projections.
- Designing a Marketing strategy to produce accelerated and sustained growth.
- Targeting a focused solution to a resistant, specific business problem.
- Recovering successfully from a turnaround situation.
Complimentary Business Assessment
Flavors offers an initial, business assessment consultation free of charge for businesses considering consulting support. We meet with the company’s principals for an hour or two and follow up with a written report of findings and suggestions, generally presented at a second meeting.
Flavors’ Comprehensive Consulting Services
Food businesses have all the operating challenges common to any business. What’s more, they carry the special responsibility that goes with serving food to the public.
We believe the trust of feeding people requires commitment to these key values:
- Healthful sourcing of ingredients.
- Conscientious standards of production and food handling, also of signage & labeling.
- Diligent health code compliance.
We invite businesses which embrace these values to put FLAVORS broad range of consulting services to work for their business.
