There’s a balance between experience, such as knowing what a restaurant’s EBITDA should be in a given location, and expertise, such as understanding how to improve systems to maximise potential. We believe we can do both.

Operational Consulting

Successful operations depend on hitting the right key performance indicators across the full range of your activities, so you achieve greatest returns from your business without compromising quality or levels of service.

Main Course Associates delivers a full range of services that cover every activity, from setting up a single restaurant for a chef entrepreneur to finding efficiencies in multiple-site operations. We can guide you step by step in implementing operations that put you in control, and ensure that systems are robust and easily applied through training so your staff can handle them successfully.

We focus on five key areas: property, product, people, projects and profits. Our sector experience allows us to benchmark your performance against comparable operators, so that targets are both demanding and realistic. Targets can range from maximising floor space – an extra table can be the difference between posting a weekly profit or loss – to advising on the most suitable EPOS system for your operation.
