Turnaround Strategies


Savvy IQ specialises in radical turnarounds of concepts that are not meeting expectations. Trends in the market, F&B costs, labour costs, operations management, and procedures are few of the critical elements that might be contributing towards the underperformance of concepts. It is imperative to rectify this as soon as possible as prolonged pressures can lead to concept failures.

Savvy IQ will access, analyse, evaluate and deliver implementation strategies which include all the business elements of the concept. Due to the uniqueness and the complexity of situations requiring turnaround strategy, we stake our professional reputation on being able to turn concepts around day-in, day-out.

          An outside perspective can often reveal issues that have not been thought of by its internal team. Quality of ingredients, portion sizes, presentation and sequence of services are some of the key factors that we look for when implementing a culinary and bar review. It is essential to have a culinary and bar review to ensure the F&B of a concept stays ahead and competitive in comparison to its competitors in the market. A critical fault of many concepts is to not consider some or all of the items above mentioned an leads to whether a customer chooses to dine with you or you competitor.
