Hello everyone! I am a seasoned 20 year veteran of the Hospitality/Food & Beverage world, having worked with world renowned Hotels, Cruise Lines, Casino's and Restaurants throughout my career. With having such an array of experiences, companies & genre's to pull from, I have been able to extract cumulative procedures and best practices in cost control which maximizes revenue and your bottom line without compromising your product or its quality.

Contracts can vary in complexity, from quick menu re-branding, to menu overhaul, to a full food and beverage cost analysis and solution, to labor cost analysis and solution, to full start up projects; IE. -menu creation, costing, pricing, hiring, training, POS setup, vendor setup and budget creation. During my last contract at a Hotel in San Antonio, Texas, I was able to drop overall liquor cost down by 18% and food cost down by 12%. These numbers equated to a next year growth of $135,000 in Liquor/Beer/Wine revenue and $78,000 in additional food revenue. This added over $213,000 to the hotels revenue stream without changing their products!!
