Secret Dining emSe a title

Secret diners are a powerful way for you to see what goes on in your establishment when you aren't there.  

We don't bring in folks who are just looking for a free meal, Kumquat Consortium sends you seasoned restaurant professionals.  We also sit down with you prior to find out what your service standards are and after to go over the report and offer suggestions when and where needed.  

Beverage EquipmentI'm another title

We offer exceptional pricing, quality and service for all beverage equipment needs.  Espresso machines, refrigerators and Vitamix through to beer line set up and tankless CO2 options.  

Beverages are a key to your success, both for quality and profitability factors.  Serve them up in a way you get the best product you can in the most cost efficient way.

Bar ProgramsI'm another title

Having a bar program in place that truly reflects your establishment is incredibly important to your bottom line.  Are your customers looking for a craft cocktail or is an inexpensive drink more important to them?  Do the drinks on your menu compliment your food offerings?  Are they priced right to be both profitable yet not seen as 'overpriced' to you patrons?

We can create, add to or re-vamp your complete bar program.  With sommeliers and cicerones on staff, craft cocktail mixologists and amazing relationships with large and smaller distributors we can create the menus, negotiate the best pricing and train your staff in the proper service and pairing of your beverages.  We also work with a local, boutique coffee roaster and an organic tea company to round out your beverage service.


New openings
Human Resources
Contract NegotiationsI'm 

Opening a new Bar or Restaurant is both exciting and daunting.  Weather you are a veteran in the industry or a first time owner there are so many aspects of opening that often things can fall through the cracks.  

We can work with you from inception or even in the final stages to make sure all bases are covered.  From hiring, training, setting up employee manuals and human resources, servsafe and TIPS training through to outside contractors like linen services and social media management.  

Even if you are up and running already we can come in and consult on all of these areas to make sure you are complying with labor laws, saving money on the services you use and make sure staff are trained and certified.  Quite often the costs of our services are covered just by the savings we are able to bring to you!
