Menu Planning & EngineeringMenu Designing & standardizing - Menu Costing - Menu Pricing –Kitchen Operations Management- Systems & Processes- Training Menu development is as much a science as an art Developing a restaurant menu is often a complicated process and mostly driven by the concept of the restaurant and the cuisine selection. Most of the restaurants are successful in the art of designing a menu but very often it is not backed by measurable processes and systems to monitor the cost efficiency Menu Engineering is about taking a more structured approach to building and monitoring a menu.
Menu Planning & Engineering We help to develop all kinds of food & beverage menus from Authentic Indian to Arabic, Asian to European , Mediterranean to Tex Mex and also create fusion menu concepts. All our recipes are created after thorough Research & Development at our end, ensuring availability of raw ingredients and seasonal produce which in turn helps in effective costing & pricing. Proper menu design and engineering will have a profound impact on your sales, profits and guest satisfaction. We also develop the kitchen systems & processes and train the chefs for best results.
Kitchen Design- Strategic Approach The kitchen is the backbone of all successful restaurants around the world High real estate prices and rentals often result in small, cramped kitchens Poorly designed kitchens can mean disaster, run into restaurant bottom lines and lead to increased employee turnover Even a small area can be converted into a smart & efficient kitchen with professional guidance Our years of experience working in international standard kitchens helps us to design modern kitchens in limited space which can overcome any kind of challenge
Restaurant Design- Themes & Concepts Standalone restaurants are often designed by home interiors or office interior firms These firms lack acumen, know-how or the creativity to set up a restaurant the result is a nice looking restaurant with Operational Flaws Then the owners are left with two choices, either to live with it or make the necessary alterations by spending even more money. Our team contributes to the success and profits of any dining establishment Planning a restaurant’s interior design begins with your budget followed by market research, continues with understanding the market trends and concludes with strategic execution.
