F&B ADVISORY WORK

Leveraging my strong pulse on global F&B trends, I have experience working with leading food retailers & hospitality brands to conceptualise, design and execute F&B experiences, grounded by end-to-end support:

  • Feasibility studies and due diligence;
  • Creating concepts and curating experiences;
  • Menu engineering;
  • Collaborative partnerships, including pop-ups and chef residencies;
  • Coordinating operational design; and
  • Support for staffing and training.
