Ripe Investment Group
Contracted Consultant / Project Manager
Developing the Sunrise Café from concept to grand opening, I played a key role in designing the restaurant while maximizing capacity, space, and the $100,000+ equipment investment. I worked effectively with contractors and kept all parties on task, formulating pricing/profit strategies, managing the budget, and achieving all timelines. To propose the best courses of action, I first identified staffing, business, and service gaps. I devised and deployed powerful branding/marketing plans, and provided sustainable packaging designs. Most importantly, I ensured full client satisfaction.
► Reducing costs 20%, I minimized expenses by negotiating affordable prices with vendors while purchasing equipment.
► I saved $10,000 while designing pastry display; I developed a café display, emulating a style observed through global travel.
