Hotel & Restaurant Consultancy Services
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you offer packages of services or can I select only the specific services I need or desire?
Both. Once we determine the "scope of services" your project requires, we then identify our services that best fit your needs. When several services are required, economies typically allow us to propose fees that are lower than if the specific services were contracted individually. For larger jobs such as turn-key development jobs, the savings realized can be significant.

The restaurant business is very difficult with a typical failure rate 80%. To succeed, you must work long hours, much longer than most businesses. However, the potential rewards of a successful restaurant business are great ... with hard work, you can earn a nice living and build equity in a viable business. Whether you have restaurant experience or not, the question remains the same - Do you want to and have what it takes to commit yourself to a difficult business that can offer larger rewards after several or more?
If you can answer yes- then you need a feasibility study and a Business Plan to get going. The question on cost is not as easy to answer because cost depends on many variables such as: Are you buying an existing restaurant or building from scratch?;
Are you looking for partners, investors, bank loans, or possibly a combination of these?;
How big is your restaurant going to be? ... and so on.
