Profit Focus

Keeping your company further into the black

A business without profit eventually will die.   Being passionate about your work is not enough.  Every business may go through short cycles when expenses will exceed income, but allowing it to happen repeatedly without making adjustments is like running red lights and not expecting to get in an accident.


The challenge in business is we often don’t place our focus on profits.  We spend all our energy concerned about the price we are selling our product or service for and what our expenses are going to be to deliver it.  Profits are an afterthought – we forget about the significance of having a profit.

We will forensically look through your accounts to see where savings could be made. In addition we will look at the business model as a whole. We also have systems which can be put in place to keep you on track in the future.

A Comprehensive Approach

Purple Egg is highly-skilled with over 30 years of experience in the commercial kitchen industry. Our consultants are chefs by trade, and this provides our business with an enhanced knowledge enabling us to design the very best of commercial kitchens with a workflow from a chef’s point of view.

Our aim is to create commercial kitchen layouts that are tailor-made to suit your menu, cooking style and business operations. Our catering consultants can suggest innovative, creative ideas to help you plan your restaurant, care home or hotel kitchen to be ergonomic and efficient, which will help towards improved profitability for your business. 

The three prime considerations we have when starting a kitchen design are:


Service requirement

We consider the type of service the kitchen has to provide – how many covers are being served, whether it is a la carte menu, plated service, self-service, or cafeteria-style etc.

Space available

Is the space allocated sufficient to fit in the equipment required?

Budget

We ascertain from the start an accurate idea of the spend available.

Executive Manager

Consultation

Expert Guidance

A Executive Manager is a consultant who is on hand to fulfil the role of an area manager but on an ad hoc basis. Perhaps you only have a small number of outlets and your business cannot sustain a full time area manager or maybe you have not experienced what an area manager can offer your business and would like to try it out before committing. 

From assessing the best way for the company to move forward, setting your managers progressive KPI's and training, even sessions to get everyone thinking of the company as a business, the benefits are limitless. 

Having an advisor and facilitator between you and your team can be the most effective way for your business to reach its potential.

Through his experience, Martins tools are countless and after an initial meeting he will be able to advise on the best approach to get you to where you want to be and how he will be able to help you achieve it.
