Food and Beverage Cost and Efficiency Expert
Last active: 10/06/2014
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. I have been doing freelance, contract work for various establishments for 5 years. 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!!
