Elevate Your Food & Beverage, Entertainment or Hospitality Experience

As industry-leading experts in specialty food, beverage, and entertainment procurement, Cushman & Wakefield’s Specialty F&B consulting team guides owners, developers and investors in their strategic evaluation, selection, and engagement of elevated F&B, and entertainment options for projects ranging from food halls, to signature restaurants, to thoughtfully designed performance spaces.

We assist hotel developers and operators in creating distinctive concepts that improve and reposition unique properties; we advise universities on the most fitting F&B programs for their students and faculty; we partner with mixed-use developers to uncover winning retail, F&B, and entertainment mix that can act as a major catalyst for a community.

Our deeply rooted relationships within both the culinary and entertainment industries serve as the currency that sets us apart from other firms. Look to our F&B professionals to provide:

Food Hall Programming & Development. Neither trend nor fad, Food Halls now qualify as a full-fledged movement in the restaurant industry and beyond. From conceptualization and planning to deal structuring and vendor procurement, we curate successful operations that serve as a true destination for meals and entertainment.

Thoughtful Restaurant Curation. High quality chefs or restaurant partners become the differentiator, drivingfoot traffic, surrounding retail and office rents, occupancy, and ADR for a real estate owner or developer. 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.
