PHASE ONE – PLANNING
After the completion of an in-depth discovery session with you and your team (whether you’re just starting, looking to scale, or looking to re-brand), we would then move into a thorough planning stage that can take approximately 45-60 days – pending scope of project.
This first phase which is completed 100% in-house by KRG Hospitality Inc., will develop or enhance the 5 unique characteristics needed to survive in this cut-throat industry; Scalability, Sustainability, Profitability, Consistency, and Memorable Experiences.
Since 2009, we have completed hundreds of these plans and stand behind our word; “that no one can meet the level of detail or value that exists within these non-negotiable documents.”
You will receive the complete, customized package of strategy plans that will not only build upon the foundations for success, but guide you and your team through the next steps in addition to providing you with a full suite of professionally written & designed presentations for investors, banks, and landlords.
