Annual Licensing & Permit Management
We help you obtain all needed permits and licensing, including ABC permits, health permits, business tax permits, food server management certification, backflow testing, fire extinguishers, and ADA compliance.
Food & Beverage Product Development
We help you create an enticing yet profitable menu. This includes creating items that use inexpensive ingredients, designing dishes that utilize the same components, establishing affordable vendor relationships, and much more.
We train you and your staff on how best to quickly resolve any employee issues, and make sure you’re responding to EDD claims appropriately. This helps you reduce your rates and stay in compliance.
Weekly Cost of Goods Reporting
We closely monitor your COGS (cost of goods sold) so when the price of goods go up, we can notify you immediately and take action to get your costs back down. Our CFO Services team will fix any discrepancies in weekly cost reporting, and continually audit and watch to ensure you’re receiving all available credits.
We cut your vendor costs by working directly with your suppliers to negotiate better rates. With years of experience and insider knowledge, we are very aware of standard industry rates and will be in your corner for negotiations.
We typically add 6-12% of profits to your bottom line with a thorough evaluation and overhaul of your current cost structure. We address every aspect of operations – cost of goods, labor rates, and more, to ensure you are running a lean and efficient business.
Policy & Operations Manual
We improve your guest experience and business performance by standardizing and streamlining objectives, procedures, job descriptions, opening and closing checklists, side work standards, and other key policies that are essential to any company in the hospitality industry.
Start-up Advisory Services
We help you avoid potentially devastating mistakes throughout the start-up phase of your restaurant. This includes helping with permits, interior and exterior design, recommended contractors, and more. We help you avoid the typical mistakes new restaurateurs often make.
We assess your local market and analyze your competition to create a full market analysis report that you can refer back to as your company grows. This report will allow you to quickly identify your competitive edge and maximize it to your advantage.
Coaching & Counseling for Management
We help you hire, interview, and select your new staff and management team. With years of experience, we help you know what you’re looking for in a candidate and conversely, identify red flags before it’s too late.
