Restaurant Operations Assessment

Chef Life Consulting often equates an operations assessment to “taking a look under the hood,” examining every part of your restaurant in an effort to identify what’s working and what’s not. By performing a detailed assessment of your concept, we can discover potential efficiencies, cost savings and improvements in the back of house, front of house and management procedures.

Menu Development

Our work covers cuisines, from caribbean to South East Asian, and can accommodate the most complex dietary restrictions.

Chef first begins with a high quality ingredients, featuring imported or local. Working closely with the entrepreneur or operator, we then enter the research & development stage, working in a kitchen with the appropriate raw materials to create menu selections that deliver the “wow factor” in flavor and is visually  appealing while considering targeted food cost, profit contribution and the potential for consistent execution.

Restaurant Labor

One of the greatest challenges a restaurant operator can face is efficient labor management. As minimum wages go up and health care expenses rise, it is more important than ever to implement high-performance systems and technologies that keep labor costs manageable and profits high.
