Taking the

First Step

"Engaging resources."
Getting Outside Help.

Don’t let apprehension engaging an outside resource become a barrier to success and growth. If you realize you have a problem or issue requiring outside help, you’ve already moved one step further than most!  If you are doing well but simply need another resource to provide input and actionable advice, it's a smart move!  

 

 

 

Our services pay for themselves.  Our approach, strategies, and solutions work for you! 

 

 

 

Everyone claims to have the “Best Service” or the “Best Food” so learn what sets you apart! 

 

 

 

We believe the three most important aspects of any successful operation in order are:  Hospitality, Originality, and Recognition.  With our training and concept development, we can help you to grab headlines, win awards, attract new excited guests and deliver bottom-line results.  Simple movements can generate $1800 more a night and total analysis and planning has pushed concepts to an extra $80,000 per month.  Draft and inventory analysis has lowered costs by more than six percent at a regional eight figure per year operation.  

 

Any experienced professional appreciates outside input and actionable data.  Every owner and all management teams can use professional coaching and mentoring.   The best coach or consultant has a well-developed sense of the challenges you’re facing, which allows him or her to design training for you that “overshoots” expectations and improves a path for on-going excellence and greater capabilities. 

 

With a process focused on quick profit generation, we afford our clients more time to focus upon supporting staff, reaching out to guests and keeping investors smiling.  

Don't let cost be a barrier.
What sets you apart?
Hospitality, Originality, Recognition.
 

Why Close To Open Consulting?

"The little things, become the big things."
Attention to detail & accountability.

How often have you walked into the shift morning, afternoon or night to find yourself already an hour or more behind?  The dishwasher didn’t finish his job at night so prep staff or you have to spend a half hour to simply open the dish station taking away from opening duties and no doubt crushing employee morale. 

 

 

 

Close to Open Management Consulting is here to support your best efforts throughout the business day and we all know the little things become the big things.  

 

Most importantly, our efforts help to create a platform for your best efforts.  We set the table for managment and employee accountability, education and ultimate success.  

We all have the same 24 hours in each day and an unknown quantity of time.  
If you wanted to own a business but find the business owning more and more of your time, let's talk and see what we can do to best support and serve you!
