What We Do

The Recipe of Success® is a nationally recognized consulting firm that has held the “secret ingredient” to creating some of the best restaurants, fast-casual dining venues, cafes, bars, bakeries and multifaceted catering and events businesses. Embracing a hands-on consultancy philosophy and an entrepreneurial spirit, The Recipe of Success provides profitable and executable solutions to private equity, owners and operators of restaurant companies.

The boutique firm specializes in both launching new restaurant startups along with turnarounds for struggling or financially distressed operations by bringing fresh ideas to the table, including concept development, food and beverage strategies, menu development, real estate brokerage, restaurant design and construction, operational procedures, marketing and staff training to drive guest frequency and maximize revenue. Since 2000, The Recipe of Success has a legacy of success “menu” of over 150 major clients.

Global in reach, holistic in approach, but locally relevant, we work alongside some of the most “seasoned” executives at some of the most successful food and beverage companies to visualize, plan, and implement innovative ideas to turnaround restaurants, bars and hospitality venues.

As restaurant consultants, we work with new and emerging brands as well as those who are well established.

Opening a hospitality business – restaurant, bar, theater or entertainment venue, is a detailed and overwhelming experience to many. The quantity of tasks, how they intertwine and deciding what to focus on and when requires organization and structure to manage the flow.

We have been a part of over 350 new openings nationwide and have learned that paying attention to and managing every detail will result in establishing a foundation for years to come. I started to develop this form in 1992 and have refined it through every opening we have been a part of, whether assisting on a small scale or large, our Critical Path worksheet has become the most important document we produce.
