“He’s like Ramsey but without the swearing!” 


TheChefandTheGrape.com will bring your F&B operation back into the black. Get over 30 years of experience on your side to analyze: is your brand resonating, are your systems complete and up-to-date and, most importantly, are you engaging with your customers? The market has never been more competitive and this is the “ace-up-the-sleeve” that will set your business apart and grow profits.


Is your brand consistent throughout your business?

Is your brand resonating with clients?

How are you driving the brand?

What is your point-of-differential?


Are your systems complete?

Are your systems up-to-date?

Are the systems being leveraged by everyone on the team?

Do new team members get brought into the system efficiently?


Creating content is not engagement.

Where do your customers look for engagement?

How often do you go to that place?

How consistently?
