Why Hire a Restaurant Consultant?

Over the years, we have continuously been asked the question, “Why hire a restaurant consultant?” The answer varies depending upon who is asking.  

  • Do you already own a restaurant?  If so,  the answer is fairly simple: Sometimes you just need another set of eyes to look at a problem.  Concerns could vary from menu selections and design, supply chain cost reductions, or even problems with recruiting talent.  You could be losing money but cannot pinpoint the cause.  You could be on the other side of the issue – your restaurant could be so busy you don’t have the time to put needed systems in place.
  • Are you looking to open a restaurant?  If this is you, a restaurant consultant can assist you with developing or commercializing your idea into a coherent business plan that will help you get financing or an outside investor.  The consultant can optimize the restaurant design, create a menu, hire staff, create HR documents and restaurant procedures.


  • Are you looking to franchise your concept or expand into a second or third location?  A consultant can complete a feasibility analysis and assist in finding the perfect location.  Consultants can also develop operations manuals needed for franchising. 


  • Are you just feeling overwhelmed?  A consultant can complete an Operations Analysis that will give you the detailed recommendations you need to establish a firm foothold.
