Take Your Restaurant from Good to Great

• A slumping Boston sidewalk café closes and reopens as a vibrant and profitable small restaurant business with unique-to-Boston West African cuisine.

• An outdated 40-year-old resort is transformed into a hopping ski, dining and nightlife hotspot in the Maine mountains.

• An on-the-verge hospitality group wins an exclusive 150-seat restaurant contract with Trump SoHo Hotel in New York.

All are success stories of DCS Associates—a five-star foodservice consulting group that creates concepts or repositions underperforming restaurants and food service businesses into outstanding in-the-money success stories.

We specialize in restaurants, the boutique hotel food & beverage, and retail specialty food market segments. Our clients range from father-and-son neighborhood storefronts in Boston to old money Newport to urban chic Miami. These are but a few among many clients who have turned to us for foodservice consulting, restaurant management services and restaurant marketing. We specialize at all levels: from front and back-of-the-house design to food menu creation to increased customer counts to financial management systems and implementation. Your casual bistro café, white table cloth restaurant, small restaurant business à la the neighborhood pizza joint or boutique hotel is next!
