Here is a list of Nims’ services:

Create a Welcoming First Impression.

A COHESIVE AND WARM FIRST IMPRESSION IS SO IMPORTANT in any establishment. All you need is a fresh pair of eyes to see what part of the overall picture is letting you down.

  • Is your Team giving a level of service that makes your customer feel welcome?
  • Is your dining room looking tired & shabby?
  • Is the music playlist and volume elevating the good mood in the Dining Room?
  • Are you purposefully engaging with your customers?

I can guide you in implementing Training, Team Norms and Expectations that will create a lasting first impression in person and online.

Build a Solid Team, starting with you.

ONE OF THE BIGGEST MISTAKES AN OWNER/OPERATOR MAKES is to allow friendship to be a priority over being “The Boss”. It’s important to be liked but it’s even more important to be followed.
A team that follows you, will trust your leadership in the trenches. You’ve worked too hard not to be intentional about this every single day. Once I help you see just how good being in control feels, we can implement simple strategies for cohesion together.

Food Licensing & other Council conundrums.

NAVIGATING ALL THAT PAPERWORK IS ENOUGH TO MAKE YOUR HEAD SPIN. If you’ve looked at the requirements for the first time or the 50th time and it still feels like an insurmountable climb, I can help you navigate that paperwork and see your way forward. What on earth should a commercial kitchen’s workflow look like anyway? Do you really need to put in a Development Application if all you want to do is renovate the kitchen? Perhaps the idea of your first inspection is freaking you out and you want someone to be there with you, “holding your hand”? Maybe you’re already trading and this time round you’d love a 5* rating but haven’t got a clue about collecting all of the relevent documentation. It’s a challenge when you’re not sure, and so much added pressure with all of those initial jobs you’re juggling. Let’s walk through it and remove some of that pressure from your plate.

Menu Writing and reigning in your Cost of Sales.

THERE ARE SO MANY IMPORTANT THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN WRITING A MENU. A list of your favourite things to eat is a pretty way to start, but certainly not a pretty way to finish. Some of the more practical considerations are the size of your kitchen & storage, your equipment & workflow, the capability & size of your Kitchen team and execution & delivery during service. Seasonality, sourcing and availability of produce play a pivotal role in the baseline cost of your menu and should always dictate your offering. I am able to compose a beautiful menu that reflects your style, that echoes what you’re trying to achieve within your budget and inspires your team to get creative. I can also work alongside your Chef to prepare for your launch or re-launch and train your team to maintain its’ execution. If your venue is already established but your food costs are out of control and that’s only the beginning of your kitchen nightmare, I can come in and quickly turn things around for you and your team.

Preserving for Profit.

PRESERVES ARE THE SIMPLEST WAY TO INCREASE YOUR BOTTOM LINE, save on wastage and increase your word of mouth advertising; seriously. I can teach your team how to include house made preserves on menu and in jars quickly and efficiently, to effectively be the answer to increasing your bottom line without a big initial outlay of Capital funds and significantly reduce waste. It’s little changes like this that help to inspire you to see more possibilities.

Managing Waste Sustainably

SUSTAINABILITY IS SUCH A BUZZ WORD, but an incredibly important one if you want the waste that your venue produces to be dealt with responsibly. This really doesn’t have to be a big expensive exercise. I can come in and do a quick assessment of your current system, and organise a new one that bears your budget and your workflow in mind. In my view, sustainable waste management isn’t a choice, it’s our collective responsibility and as an Industry, we have an obligation to lead the way.
