Better people. Better Businesses. Better Industry.
Restaurateurs, chefs, general managers, and other hospitality leaders work in a dynamic industry: one with massive, steady growth; abundant opportunities for managerial and executive employment; and room for new businesses and innovation. Yet the playing field is rough: high business failure, demanding service and regulatory standards, high turnover, and a 24/7/365 work schedule.
Savor Strategies helps hospitality leaders navigate in a complex industry where the way forward isn’t often clear. We serve as a roadmap for owners, managers, and executives no matter the destination or where they are in their professional development. Our services include advisory sessions, project engagements, leadership coaching, process implementation support, and training workshops; all designed to help leaders make meaningful improvements to their businesses and careers. By working with clients one-on-one or team-to-team, we ensure they’ll meet expectations and achieve profitable results in every facet of their establishments: from operations and facilities management, to marketing and branding, to financial systems and human capital, to regulatory compliance and tech implementation. If you’re a hospitality professional interested in making a difference in your career and business, Savor is in the business of supporting your success.
Ingredients for success. Great hospitality is hard work. Each detail has to be just right: a high standard for an industry where knowledgeable leaders are in short supply. Our consultants and coaches have decades of experience between them, in every class and concept category. Time is always of the essence for our clients: their commodities are perishable and opportunities are fleeting. Success is compromised overnight without the guidance, execution, and resources required. Savor’s process responds to this bottom-line reality, emphasizing consistency and reliability as surefire ingredients for career and business success.
Profitable restaurants. In an industry where ninety percent of new restaurants fail within the first five years, cash flow and profitability are crucial to staying afloat. New arrivals are especially vulnerable to costly mistakes, negative reviews, poor decision-making, and other liabilities without the high-level of expertise required to avoid them. No matter your level of competence, Savor tailors solutions to fit the scope of work required to optimize margins and revenue. We work with leaders as an extension of their expertise, manpower, and capabilities in ways that enhance profitability.
Our consulting sessions are designed to produce specific results for clients and their businesses. Whether it’s sharing information, assisting with start up logistics, advising on technology implementation, or rescuing an enterprise from failure, we know the importance of providing efficient and effective solutions to the everyday challenges of running a hospitality business.
Business coaching is a behavioral and developmental process that builds upon a leader’s capacity to achieve professional and organizational results. Coaches work with clients one-on-one or in groups to engage them in a thought-provoking session to maximize their potential, improve their workplace performances, and produce fulfilling results in their professional lives.
Savor’s seminars, workshops, and retreats come in several flavors. We offer one-on-one and group formats, depending on professional or organizational needs. Our educational offerings are driven by evidence. We collect anecdotes from experts and process details from you and your employees – data garnered from multiple perspectives within the industry and your organization.
“We were skeptical about finding someone we could trust to understand our situation…and to help us get control of everything as quickly as possible. With Savor we felt safe to admit we were struggling and that made all the difference…the solutions provided improved our bottom line almost immediately.”
