Often when meeting new people, I’m asked ”What does a hospitality consultants do?” For me, that’s a simple and yet complicated question.

By definition, a hospitality consultant is someone who works with members of the hospitality industry to start, improve, or renovate businesses. 

We believe in helping people realize their creative vision for their hospitality business. Specifically, our work culture allows us to achieve greater results from passionate people working together. This approach makes us more flexible, creative, and fun to work with. A lot of people have a sense of what they would like their space or business to look and run like, but they are not sure how to get there.  We have a team of professional staff with a wealth of expertise and experience to advise and guide you along the way in all the micro-decisions, to ensure that your back-of-the-envelope sketch materializes into a well-executed reality. We also give creative insight to what works best for your brand.

​Clients with new establishments use our services to obtain advice regarding suppliers, marketing strategies, in-house management and training programs etc. We also have the expertise to assist with the implementation of services which include the compilation of menus, room costing, as well as staff recruitment and training. Our work includes consulting on and creating marketing campaigns, online presence, and website development. We attend consumer shows for clients; manage their Facebook pages and help clients manage their online reputation. We consult, advise, and partner with businesses that want to make a difference; and co-create meaningful programs, products, and services, that impact, challenge, and improve user experiences across the hospitality and work-space categories. We WILL fill the gaps.

We believe in close management throughout the process, ensuring care is taken in every detail and no short cuts are attempted. We believe in spaces and essential guidance that are tailored to suit not only your aesthetic, but serve your needs going far into the future. We believe this is what builds the trust that is the foundation to long-term relationships with our clients.
