“It is every aspiring restaurateur’s dream to set up a gorgeous restaurant. But, conceptualizing a restaurant that will be a complete go-to for customers has a great number of strings attached. Every aspect of the restaurant business needs to be molded from the word go, starting right from the foundation of the idea to consistent management after the grand opening. While this is all easier said than done, handling all the requirements simultaneously can be a tedious task for the restaurateur and his crew. So, what if these tasks could be handled and served on a silver platter by a team of professionals? Amici Consultants does just that – and more ” Says the Founding Team Amici Consultants.

– Concept Book
This image loaded book helps the client visualize the food and beverage plan, facility direction, service approach, business goals, a narrative journey of the guest and other details that set the concept in a different dimension than the others.
