ADVICE, TRAINING, & PROJECT SERVICES TO HELP
HOSPITALITY GROUPS PLAN, OPEN AND ELEVATE
UNIQUE RETAIL F&B OUTLETS SUCCESSFULLY.
HOW WE HELP:
Hospitality markets projects are complex, time consuming and often fail to reach their potential: Sit-down dining and hotel room service have evolved to bespoke market concepts including: artisan cafes, markets, eateries, and grab & go concepts. Modest success selling to captive guests often blinds hotel investors, owners & operators to common recurring hurdles limiting greater profits.:
Industry wide hospitality management and team members lack retail and food merchandising skill sets to build sales. As a result, hotel operated retail food markets often fail to reach their fullest potential by missing key impulse sales opportunities daily. The most innovative hoteliers will seek assistance to translate retail practices to the hospitality industry. Merchandise Food can help you grow average guest checks and overall dollar sales.:
WHO WE HELP:
Merchandise Food can help with a strong line-up of services custom tailored to evolve everything from basic retail snack & sundries "closets" to full-scale made-to-order markets with grab & go components.
Many of our clients have corporate or store level responsibility for food & beverage sales in a variety of food outlets. We advise those engaged in:
Our fee based written assessment provides powerful recommendations and insights based upon an agreed upon scope which may include:
Our Retail Food Merchandising Assessment is highly visual in nature and outlines key potential high-level challenges limiting the financial success of the operation.
Outsourced Implementation & Project Management: A retail assessment report will develop an extensive list of recommendations requiring agreement, prioritization and special projects with “bite size” tactics for implementation. As a result, Merchandise Food can independently support projects with expert advice and customized specialized services remotely or onsite as needed. For a more collaborative approach, we can also Coach (See Coaching Services Below) your own hospitality teams through steps for a hotel food store opening, reset or "evolution" process. In our experience two to six (2-6) months to plan, prepare and implement a successful store reset or opening merchandising plan is necessary depending on each unique circumstance. Every project is different, however, here are sample project examples below:
Note: Third-party retail food project stakeholders such as: architects, developers, hotel & resort real estate investment groups, foodservice design firms are welcome refer or engage food merchandising project or advisory services on behalf of their clients & tenants.
