FOOD RETAILERS PLAN, OPEN AND ELEVATE SUCCESSFULLY.
HOW WE HELP:
Pinpointing Missed Opportunities: Today, everybody's a food retailer, creating great competition and pressure on brick & mortar store leaders to produce results. Thriving food markets excel in innovation, differentiation, service, retail strategy and "dynamic merchandising". Leaders must solve hurdles to sales like:
WHO WE HELP:
Whether it's a department within your store or a stand alone location we can support advancement of your visual food merchandising and operations in a variety of distinct retail food environments:
Merchandise Food can help advise, innovate & coach your team as well with a strong line-up of services custom tailored for single location to food retailers with a national presence. Here's how we helped others:
Our food merchandising consulting clients have ownership, corporate or store level management responsibility for food & beverage sales in a variety of food focused environments. We advise and support those leaders actively engaged in:
We believe a proper "prescription" requires not only due diligence in diagnosis but new third-party perspectives. Our fee-based written assessment provides powerful recommendations and insights based upon a customizable scope which may include:
Our Retail Food Merchandising Assessment Report is provided in a highly visual "presentation format" and outlines key challenges likely limiting the financial success of the operation. This deliverable also features comprehensive and strategic high-level recommendations, insights, or resources to foster positive change.
Outsourced Implementation & Project Management: A retail assessment report will develop an extensive list of recommendations requiring agreement, prioritization and execution of special projects with “bite size” tactics for a successful implementation. As a result, Merchandise Food can support required project work as an experienced outsourced partner. Our teams can advance or oversee project components remotely and/or onsite as needed. Every project is different, however, here are sample project examples below:
Note: Third-party retail food project stakeholders such as: architects, developers, real estate investment groups, foodservice design firms often refer or engage food merchandising project or advisory services on behalf of their clients & tenants.
Other clients desiring to perform tasks themselves in a do-it-yourself (D.I.Y.) approach can engage us in a less intensive advisory capacity to bolster internal teams. By Coaching (See Below) your employees through a merchandising reset or retail "evolution" process you can gain expert guidance while simultaneously building and broadening retail & merchandising skill sets within your organization. In our experience, two to six (2-6) months to plan, prepare and implement a successful small market, department reset or opening merchandising plan is necessary but varies for each unique circumstance.
We can support your market evolution through an on-going coaching role. Each consulting engagement is custom tailored to the client's needs. One-on-one online meetings with site level management can be scheduled periodically to assist your team members with food merchandising and retailing projects. Our coaching approach fosters greater urgency and follow-through to implement advancements faster. Regular access to third-party expert advice can help your team save precious time and resources and limit costly mistakes.
