What is the secret of the successful launch of the La Veranda restaurant?
Adina Brunetti, our team’s leader, has a lot to do with it. Our regular customers have known for a long time that they can rely on our consistent quality. Because they realize that they’re on their toes and ready for everything – they copy our ideas, but without the creativity we give.
Neither a low price nor a false offer can deceive the buyer. Because of the quality of the food, the service, and the atmosphere, people keep coming back to us.
Adina Healthy Village is your professional portfolio’s equivalent of a food court. What was the status of the project before the epidemic, and what would it look like afterward?
Adina Healthy Village was designed to serve the city’s residents, and it is now open to the public in the heart of downtown Hialeah. The institution resembles a food market from the outside, where numerous concepts may be shown and rotated. The fact that you can constantly locate and taste something new, in addition to the usual “Miami food,” is appreciated by guests. This project appears to have a lot of potential for me.
What global but inevitable changes await the hospitality industry?
Inevitably, the elements that influence restaurant popularity will shift. Pre-pandemic, the success of a public catering company was dependent on three L (location, location, and more location) (technology). Celebrity chefs, bartenders, and managers can no longer command big fixed wages, and the desire of a competent chef or waiter to work in a particular firm will be based on a good, fascinating internal culture and the possibility of personal, professional progress. To succeed, we must be able to recruit and retain competent employees. So long as one’s financial interests (participation to distributions from the enterprise’s profits) and creative potential are aligned, this is possible. Create new Instagram attractive dishes made with fresh ingredients and meticulously prepared by the chef. This will help your restaurant stand out from the competition, attract new customers, and retain existing ones.
