Savor Strategies formal noun | \ˈsā-vər ˈstra-tə-jēz\ a management consulting and business coaching firm specializing in professional and organizational development for restaurants, hotels, and other hospitality-related businesses.
Better people. Better Businesses. Better Industry. Restaurateurs, chefs, 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 an industry where roadmaps aren’t often apparent or accessible. We offer roadmaps in the form of our services to owners, managers, and executives no matter where they are in their professional development. We provide options in the way of 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 achieve what ultimately matters: 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 you.
Ingredients for success. Becoming great at hospitality is hard work. Each detail has to be just right: a high standard for an industry where knowledgeable leaders are often in short supply. Our consultants and coaches have decades of relevant experience between them; in virtually every class and concept type within our industry. They know ours is an industry in which time is always of the essence: commodities are perishable, opportunities are fleeting,, and business failure occurs overnight without the standards, execution, and resources required to build trust among our patrons and to profit successfully. Savor’s consulting programs respond to this bottom-line reality in ways that create consistency and reliability for our clients as they manage these time-factored details: surefire ingredients for success in their careers and businesses.
Profitable restaurants. Savor works with restaurant owners, chefs, and general managers as an extension of their expertise, manpower, and capabilities to affect the bottom line. In an industry where ninety percent of new restaurants fail within the first five years, cash flow and profitability are essential ingredients to staying afloat. New arrivals underestimating the high-level of expertise needed are especially vulnerable to costly mistakes, negative reviews, poor decision-making, and other liabilities. No matter your level of competence, we tailor our solutions to fit the scope of work required to optimize margins and revenue generation.
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.”
