and thanks for taking the time to find out more about BrandLanterns for the foodservice and hospitality industry.
You'll find the answer to key questions below, but of course the best way is to simply get in touch here.
what do i do?...& who for?
1. Hospitality business? (Coffee Shop, Pub or Restaurant etc? Street Food Vendor?)
I'll help achieve greater profits by increasing footfall and spend per customer, whilst lowering overheads, via strategy, marketing and effective design.
2. Food or Drink Producer?
I'll help you towards greater profits by increasing sales (through smarter product positioning, greater brand reliance and exposing new opportunities). I also support clients with general advert creation, press releases, representation at exhibitions, social media, vehicle livery and signage design etc - see full services here.
3. Foodservice Wholesaler? Brewery or Catering Group?
For foodservice wholesalers, brewery and catering groups, I help to empower their teams through their ability to deliver superior business support, thereby sky-rocketing sales and brand preference.
For smaller food or drink producers, I bring clarity and improved profits through improved customer understanding, smarter business strategies and brand development.
Whatever your size and style of business, BrandLanterns can also support you through a range of services, including Full Sales & Marketing activities, Interior Design & Make-overs, Profit & Efficiency reviews.
Whilst the BrandLanterns office is based in Barnstaple, North Devon, I regularly travel to customers around the South-West (Devon, Somerset, Cornwall), as well as Oxfordshire and parts of the Midlands.
For further flung customers, much of our work can either be provided via email or by working with other professionals based closer to you. Either way, we'll do our best to help or point you in the right direction.
how do I do that?
By combining my 20+ years experience in Sales, Marketing and Interior Design with a deep understanding of the foodservice and hospitality industry, and the challenges facing caterers and small business owners.
I mostly work alone, yet have a diverse network of professionals to support when larger projects or extended services would be of help. In such cases, I'll put together a team of experts to suit your needs exactly. I'm obsessive about honesty, so if I suspect I'm not the perfect fit for you, I'll help find you the person or business that is.
why might you need me?
Clients typically need me for a combination of the following reasons...
Time: "I don't have the time for all that needs thinking about and/or doing"
Clarity, Creativity & Knowledge: "I don't really know what needs doing or how to do it"
Confidence & Mentorship: "I need support in choosing, and taking, the next steps" or "It's hard to see the best way forward"
Empowerment: "I need tools that help us stand out from the competition...and confidence in our ability to deliver"
what will it cost?
This will naturally depend on what you need. If that can be quickly agreed, then I'll give you an itemised quote to clearly show the cost for each element (1000 x flyers, 5 page website, new logo design and outdoor signage, or such like).
Mentorship and coaching services are typically charged on an hourly basis, with no tie-in at all.
Not sure what you really need? I offer a free consultation to help you agree the best first steps.
Agency or business just needing to 'pick my brains?'. My food and drink specialism means I'm often asked this, perhaps to help you win a new pitch, offer a new perspective or generate new ideas. I offer a 'Power-Up' hourly service where I'll fill you with helpful insights and ideas to progress with. In-house expertise in an instant!
Profit-boosting strategy plans are also popular. These vary in cost depending on the complexity required and adjustable to your budget.
For a friendly, straight-forward chat about costs, see my contact details here.
let's work together, for 'a brighter way'.
