Operations Consultancy | Home Page

The Brief

Seeds Consulting were approached by the MDs of Wolf Street Food on the verge of them launching their new brand concept in the Chiswick business park. We were asked to help streamline the operations, to help launch the new store and to ensure that the profit margins were in line with forecast. The store had previously suffered high labour and high cost of sales in its previous incarnation.

Wolf were also on the verge of franchising their concept and as such needed to ensure that along with making sure their Chiswick store opening was a success, they needed to prove to any future prospective franchisees that the model worked. They also need to ensure that they had all of the necessary SOPs and compliance in place.
