We manage the process from initial financial analysis to local market due-diligence to chef procurement to pair the best restaurant concept with top real estate.

Music, Education & Special Events Procurement. Consumers are looking for memorable and fresh experiences that offer blends of entertainment, learning and F&B. Our experts leverage our top entertainment and culinary talent network to create discerning, collaborative events such as food and music pairings, sporting events and suite programs, product launches and re-launches, grand openings, pop-ups, festivals and more.
