Independent F&B operations or restaurants groups going through either slow or rapid growth, need hands-on management; a kind of leadership which involves the establishing of a new communication process with the different departments teams; the common goal is to get everybody working together with decisions and strategic planning that get them closer to the vision itself.

The Consultant shall interview each member of the management team, understand restaurants operations and how they are executed, talk with team members and guests. There is no turnaround without a direct understanding of the actual situation and a clear setting of actions plans to move forward.

A short-term 120 days can do a lot to change the momentum of a concept.

One of the initial goals is to reinforcing trust in the various teams members. They need to feel there is a new plan for success and proper steps are being taken. 

Another important point to consider is that restaurants are made of interactions between four elements: people, place, products and positioning. An in-depth approach for managing these elements is the key to success in any turnaround process.

Turnaround consultants evaluate where and how the overall expenditure can be reduced and the cash flow improved. At same time they analyze staff’s performance and consider terminations or promotions or changes of positions. They also propose to get rid of assets not needed or limit production and services that are not profitable; all this to reduce cost.

For your business turnaround you need an expert who knows the industry inside and out, someone who has either owned and/or managed several non-branded, independent businesses, with years of experience in managing this or similar type of venture. 
When choosing a consultant you need to have clear his track record in both management and also preopening.

Ultimately a check of his record in terms of references and success is always recommended. Previous clients or employers can provide feedback and eventually talk about how effective the expert was in implementing the changes needed and improving the business

Il "Bel Paese", a new Dining Vision repositioning project in Hong Kong, reopened its Deli Shops locations in Happy Valley, Caine Road and Bonham Road, after being closed for about 10 days for a complete interior remodeling and new F&B concept development.

This popular brand, existing since 2001, has a loyal customers base that will find out the changes focus on providing a better quality and shopping experience, while introducing to a new generation more organic and eco-friendly choices.

The deli shops are a lot fresher, with a brighter, more inviting and approachable retail area, ice cream corner and a huge vertical cheese and cold cuts fridge right at the entrance. We wanted to re-look at an Italian grocery store concept, not formal and intimidating but rather engaging and conversational.
The refresh of the deli shops in Happy Valley, Bonham Road and Caine Road was led by Dining Vision, a Hong Kong based F&B Consulting Company with ongoing projects in Vietnam and Thailand as well.
