Service And Hospitality Businesses Share A Few Common Characteristics
They live or die by customer service
It doesn’t matter whether your business focuses on events, transportation, food, lodging, or something else; you must provide excellent customer service, or your business will ultimately fail.
Providing excellent customer service is at the end of the day a fairly easy endeavor. Many businesses think it’s as much as just putting on a smile and doing what the customer requests, but there is so much more to it than that. You need to be quick, accommodating, yet effective.
Allow us to take a look at your business and see where it can be improved. Maybe your staff is incredibly friendly to a fault and it’s leading to something like food not getting out as quickly as it should. For example, it could be because they’re too busy chatting, or maybe it’s the other way around. You could be so focused on chatting that you are letting it impact your daily workflow. There are always to improve your business that you should be taking advantage of.
Consequently, the best way to find these improvements is by bringing in a second pair of eyes to look at it. You have natural biases that will exist within your company. We have no biases beyond helping you improve.
They are cyclical
When consumers and businesses are spending, service and hospitality businesses do very well. When the economy tanks, they tend to suffer. This is why it’s important to have a strong base because as your customers make sacrifices in their life they may be more willing to not include you in those sacrifices.
Additionally, staying on the positive side also means that when the economy improves these same people will be willing to come back. You can do your best to fight against this cyclical nature as well by just generally running your business well. When the economy fails the greatest businesses always manage to stay ahead.
They use technology, but people are the heart of the business
Service and hospitality businesses are relatively labor intensive. With the right people, your business will thrive; with the wrong people, it may not even survive. Therefore, when you find great employees you want to treat them in a way that will keep them happy with you.
Great employees will benefit you over time. These are the people your business are built on. As a result, if you treat your employees well then your employees will treat you well. It’s a give and take and requires a delicate balance.
Benefits of Hospitality Business Consulting
There are more benefits to hiring a consultant for your hospitality business needs than simply making a plan and obtaining a liquor license. Having a fresh pair of eyes looking at your business plan and goals can help you remain on task. At the same time, valuable market insight can help your establishment maximize its efficiency allowing you to reach the goals envisioned.
Hiring a hospitality business consultant is a great choice if you’re looking to optimize your establishment and take it to the next level.

Here at Liquor License Professionals, our hospitality business consultants can alleviate a lot of burden. It’s our job to devote time towards the research and data so as to weigh potential options.

- Fresh Eyes: When you invest time and resources into a project, sometimes it becomes hard to distinguish what is left on your check-list or overlooked. Similar to why authors hire editors to guide the flow of the story or provide that final sweep for anything gone awry, a business should consider a consultant to be their editor doing the same. As subject experts, we can help you identify remaining check-list items and bring to light what may have been overlooked.
- Save Time Overall: Liquor License Professionals has extensive experience pertaining to the hospitality industry and its needs. Our knowledge and expertise of the process can streamline to-do lists so that your business can run sooner rather than later.
What Are Cost Consulting Services?
It can be difficult to identify the most efficient way to spend money when growing your business. This is especially true for new owners. The role of cost consulting is to help an establishment manage its expenses. Sometimes, organizations do not have the time or resources to properly manage tasks such as bookkeeping, invoicing, and managing providers. We are here to help! It is important to us to make sure you are getting the most out of your money.
In addition, we can help you establish cost consulting best practices within your establishment, and determine areas to cut costs. Examples of key areas your establishment may be overspending in are waste management, energy costs, and managing telecom expenses. Establishments often don’t realize how much they are spending on waste management, energy costs, or even the upkeep of your wireless voice and data environment. Count on our team at Liquor License Professionals. We can help you cut down on those costs by streamlining your internal business and cost operations.
Cut your costs for refrigeration, storage, cleaning products, and smallwares as well. We ensure that your equipment maintains an appropriate electrical output to manage costs. We also confirm that your business complies with the American Disabilities Act. As well as checking that your services align with Division of Alcoholic Beverages & Tobacco, Division of Hotels & Restaurants and Florida Health Codes.
