You would be surprised at some of the results I see as I visit properties throughout the year. Most have led to the discovery of considerable low-hanging fruits in areas that need work. This almost always results in improved revenues, efficiencies, and bottom-line improvements. This property visit will give you a quick snapshot and comprehensive report for each of your properties’ F&B operation.
I know that a great deal of time, money, planning, and forethought [read: blood, sweat, and tears] has been put into these operations, but it does not take long for the team to wander off the path. Sometimes some of the smallest details have a huge impact.
When we live in a forest, as time goes by, we lose sight of the trees. When things are going well, who bothers to look too closely at the staffing levels? Who looks closely at purchasing, waste, and over-production when the numbers are good?
Who checks what the capture rate is regarding in-house guests or regular numbers for breakfast, lunch, or dinner? Who is checking your average check, P&L, and expenses, your social media, and customer feedback? What does your gut say about the health of your establishments; are you happy?
If the answer is “no”, I suggest that it is time to do a “check-up”. This is where Focus – F&B can help with a Hotel F&B Alignment Review.
Our 3-day visit will focus on all of the above. Our goal is to look at every aspect of your Food & Beverage Operation.
We will find ways to increase revenue and decrease costs so that the cost of $1600 + travel expenses, will yield quick returns on your investment.
