As hospitality labor markets tighten and costs rise, operational efficiency is vital to a successful operation. M Culinary works with operators to develop streamlined menus that allow for a wide array of skill levels in employees. Working with clients’ architects and engineers, M Culinary fine tunes physical workspaces and equipment schedules to achieve effective workflow. The results often include reduction in labor force required and hours worked.


Through our tested and proven method of “cross-utilization”, M Culinary associates helps clients develop and activate menu programs that significantly reduce food cost – in some cases from as high as 66% down to 32%. Profitability rises along with customer satisfaction scores – a win-win if ever there was one!


M Culinary Associates brings decades of kitchen, BOH and FOH design experience. Working closely with clients, their architects and engineers, we identify opportunities for design improvement and equipment reduction or replacement. The result is savings that easily can reach into six figures, and a lower opening cost model.


Every client and every location present unique circumstances and challenges. M Culinary Associates provides tailored solutions – we prefer customized plans over cookie-cutter fixes.
