KPIs hit


Due to NDAs as well as out of respect to our client, we are not entitled to release the names of the restaurants.

We were approached by renowned investors behind multiple restaurant concepts in central London, who tasked us with refining & reviewing the back end processes though the implementation of Management Information Systems to standardise operational procedures.

The restaurants were struggling with controlling costs despite high turnover, consistent lunch and dinner covers and positive press. We were brought on to look into why this was the case and to set general management systems up that would ensure accountability and full understanding of day to day takings.

“ It's always rewarding being able to support a successful business with growing pains. We know how it goes ” Ian Ballantyne Food Director
