Process Overview


Whether you’re a startup or an existing restaurant, in Ontario or abroad, we have packages designed to meet your needs.

Before you put your dreams into action, it’s essential to start with the best strategy. We work with restaurant startups every step of the way, from creating a business plan, to checking out the best locations, to negotiating the lease agreement. Once we’ve locked down the ideal locale, we’ll help you design the layout of the kitchen and dining areas, create the menu, and perfect your recipes.

For businesses that need a makeover, we’ve got you covered.

Step 1 is understanding your location and competition. Next, we’ll look into the layout of your business: is it comfortable, accessible, and enjoyable? Finding ways to improve your dining/bar areas as well as your kitchen and stock rooms will be a major part of our service, and we’ll work to revamp your menu, recipes, and training programs.

We can come to you anywhere in North America, or we can meet with you virtually to discuss plans and improvements. A menu of a la carte services is available, including restaurant design, social media and marketing, menu design & profit, or recruitment & training.
