These are very popular programs where 1 or 2 of our consultants come to your property for 7 days. This package provides 7 days of analyzing and fixing the problems that are keeping you from maximum profits. These programs are customizable based on your needs and typically includes a complete menu re-engineering (with unlimited revisions until you are satisfied), cost analysis, competition price comparison, guerilla marketing implementation, training and implementing methods to reduce your labor and overhead costs.  For more information about these programs, click on 7 Day Bar Tune-up or 7 Day Restaurant Tune-up.

Groupon Rescue:
Most restaurant and bar owners regret using Groupon.  Some refer to it as “Groupon Crack” because once you start it is hard to stop.  Our Groupon Rescue transforms your marketing program and brings customers in for your great food, drinks, service and atmosphere rather than because you are the cheapest.  Click Groupon Rescue for more information about this important program and the perils of using Groupon.

Menu Rescue:  
We will research your restaurant, clientele, and competition then design a menu that reduces your specialized inventory, simplifies your cooking procedures, includes one or more signature dishes, provides excitement, reduces waste and lowers labor costs.  We specialize in menus that appear to be chef inspired but don’t require a chef. When we design your menu, you get unlimited “re-dos” until you decide to implement it.
