Bringing an old country food idea to life

Food executive at major resort opens his own restaurant.


An executive director for food and beverage of a highly popular and hugely successful southern California resort wanted to bring food from his native country to the beach cities.

He wanted to find a suitable location along the harbor within a short drive from his home.


Our client has an intense work schedule and did not want to leave his executive position to open a new restaurant.  On the other hand, he really wanted to offer the community a restaurant that would give locals a chance to enjoy the food of his native European country.  We helped him identify a location and negotiate the purchase of an existing restaurant adjacent to a pier.  He still retains his executive position while being able to enjoy the regional food at his restaurant.
