ARE YOU PLANNING TO START A BUSINESS IN GASTRONOMY? TO BE COMPLETELY HONEST – IT WILL NOT BE EASY!
Opening of a new place on the gastronomic map of the city will probably fail. Statistically, in Europe and America, only one out of ten restaurants will survive more than five years on the market. It does not sound optimistic, does it?
People think they are experts in politics, sports, and gastronomy, just by watching the news or sport matches and cooking a delicious paella for their friends. The truth is completely different – gastronomy is an incredibly specialized and competitive industry where only the best ones succeed. Those who fail are simply not taken into account.
At BON VIVANT ADVISORY, we will guide you through the process of opening your business until the first Guests visiting your restaurant. We analyze and correct the business plan, make profound research of the local market, suggest adjustments and modifications. The experience we have in opening new businesses, as well as in restaurant cost management, allows us to reduce the investment budget by several percent – this money can be used in a much better way!
The idea of opening a new restaurant on a competitive market is not enough. What is necessary is to develop a unique gastronomic concept. So far, we have visited nearly fifty countries on almost all continents. Every time we come from our numerous travels, we bring some inspiration – unique flavors, ideas for new dishes or ways of serving, unknown fruit and rare spices.
On a daily basis, we get to meet restaurant owners, chefs, food enthusiasts and foodie. Thanks to their experience and the analysis of current trends, we create ready-to-implement, consistent and unique gastronomic concepts. Based on our Partner’s preferences, we personalize the concepts and eventually implement them. We will make your restaurant, bar or cafe have a unique offer so that your Guests will keep coming back.
We also remember about the least fun part – the bureaucracy and the technical aspects of starting a new business. We advise our Partners what to consider when choosing a venue, we help analyze contracts, suggest effective methods of solving issues like (licence to sell alcohol or the so-called Sanepid acceptance).
HAVE YOU BEEN ON THE MARKET FOR A FEW YEARS? WE HAVE A SURPRISE FOR YOU
Our cooperation with companies operating for over a year is the most spectacular. After years of running a restaurant, you can honestly ask yourself questions about the condition of your business, such as:
The results of the company’s audit usually surprise our Partners. The objectivity with which we look at the functioning business allows us to find room for improvement. Joint development of changes and their implementation brings amazing results.
THE END IS JUST THE BEGINNING
Working with us also gives what a conscious entrepreneur appreciates the most – sense of peace.
The end of a successful project is usually the beginning of a long-term cooperation. Our Partners very often decide to continue working with us in the form of a subscription.
During monthly update meetings, we discuss the outcomes of certain activities, for example, the Mystery Shopper visit which helps indicate the direction of further changes. We analyze the way the company has been operating so far, and then find the room for optimization. We not only find problems, but we also find solutions. Thanks to traveling (nearly fifty countries), attending the largest trade fairs, and being up to date with latest news also from abroad, we are aware of trends and new solutions that we later recommend our Partners. As it turns out, they often give a competitive advantage on the Polish market.
Working with us also gives what a conscious entrepreneur appreciates the most – sense of peace. We verify if the company is prepared for an unexpected visit by state institutions and identify critical shortcomings. We control the quality of service and organize professional training and workshops.
