New restaurants "Opening Soon" in your area!

I would like to share information on our services that help restaurant vendors locate (and sell) restaurants who are in the "opening soon" stages. If you are a vendor who needs to be in front of a restaurant opening perhaps we can help you beat your competitor.

Check out (Fresh Leads for Hospitality Industry Providers)

and contact me to discuss new leads in your area.

Thank you

I think that DC recently changed some legislation about mobile food trucks and their presence around standing businesses. I will look for the link. As for examples of brand extensions, you might think about when a company chooses to deliver. Or when they decide to cater. It's the same idea I think. Or another real example would be Wolfgang Puck and his smaller less expensive places Wolf Gang Puck Express. @Luc Chamberland, hope that helped!

Hello forum members,
Does a mobile food truck that is a brand extension of an existing restaurant become a new restaurant? It's a unique way to leverage an existing establishment by maimizing resources and promoting the brand. Any examples of this in the real world would be worth documenting.

As a rule food and beverage consultants do not affiliate as a group to perform services during new openings and re-concepts. We bring a wealth of knowledge and skills to all clients. Each of us has special skills. Rather than trying to be everything to all clients, I propose a collaboration of professionals to refer leads to each other in our areas of specialization and work together on projects based upon the size and scope of the job.
If you discover a project that doesn't really fit what you do I believe we can generate leads for each other by posting opportunities through this site as well as refer resources (example: I've got some great contacts in design, and equipment suppliers. Not my specialty but through previous projects I know these people are rock solid).
My specialties are restaurant turn-arounds, new openings, tribal gaming food and beverage, layout and design (specific to permanent labor reduction) and construction project management.
I am seeking specialists in other areas such as personnel, recruiting and marketing to refer to.
