What is Restaurant Revitalization?
The Restaurant Revitalization Seminar is a unique, 12-week restaurant management "crash course" presented by the Brookline Chamber of Commerce in partnership with expert consultants.
Our goal is to empower 15 Brookline independent restaurants to grow into more equitable, sustainable, and resilient businesses.
This over $5,500 value program is no cost to Brookline independent restaurant owners.
The group of 15 will be split into three cohorts based on financial status and level of business literacy. The program consists of regular full-group workshops as well as one-one-one coaching customized to the needs of each restaurant.
The Restaurant Intensive Seminar addresses the current challenges small restaurants face today, focusing on:
- financial analysis
- financial literacy
- controlling and managing COGS and labor.
The goal is to support restaurant owners to understand your numbers, make savvy and data-driven decisions about labor, menu design, and operations to strengthen your business for the current moment, and to help you be prepared to make effective decisions as the conditions of running a restaurant continue to change each year.
This program incorporates weekly group seminars in addition to weekly 1:1 support from a consultant for the entire 12 weeks of the program.
Through this high-touch program, participating restaurants are supported to learn content in the group seminars and implement through time with a consultant and with your team.
The weekly group seminar time allows for peer problem solving between participants – often an invaluable aspect of the cohort-style program.
Workshops will be scheduled for 12 weeks on Mondays, time to TBA depending on feedback from restaurant representatives at the Information Sessions, beginning February 6th, ending on April 24th.
