Our experienced food and beverage experts analyze different offerings within the hotel’s food service outlets to enhance revenue, reduce overall costs, and help you better serve your guests. This detailed analysis includes a focus on menu engineering, product cross-utilization and comparisons against local competitors. We focus on actual profits returned from a menu, rather than the customary focus on the percentage cost of menu items, and figure out which items require re-pricing, re-plating or re-costing.

Our comprehensive analysis of your F&B program will improve your ability to reduce costs while staying true to your strategy.
We improve your ability to control waste/spoilage, and ultimately reduce food costs by reviewing the complete life-cycle of incoming high-spend products. Our team assists in establishing a standardized approach to food production processes and portion control.
Our focus on improving guest experience includes an assessment and recommendations for your employee training program, product quality/value and service levels.
Our established quality assurance best practice guide measures proper supplier qualifications and performance, audits food handling and storage processes, and enables us to develop a customized quality assurance program for you.
