Putting Together the Brand

Restaurant brand creation is not just naming or symbolically tagging a business but it goes beyond this. It is birth of a brand, which is headed towards fulfilment of all promises and guaranteeing top class services and products. Such a brand enjoys top of mind recall from its customers and a high level of brand loyalty.  

The name is the first battle for consumer recognition and it is very important to make it something to remember. The most important aspect of a brand’s name and symbol is that it silently speaks everything about the company or product. Every name and symbol is associated with certain values, features and it tries to build a relationship with the business.

 

A tag line is the next step forward to explain your product offer: This descriptive tagline should be the anchor for all components of the concept, and the entire product positioning should match the tagline’s description – from service style and hospitality, through to food and crockery.

Food Business Consultancy provides an interactive process when developing brands for clients: We develop the core identity elements ensuring that brand identity stands out: logos, symbols, visual style and voice. By combining these with images, concepts and messages, we create the space where the brand comes into life. We name things, identifying the work a name needs to do and the kind of name that will engage the target customer. We also create the descriptors and slogans that help fill each name with meaning.

The development process includes:

 

  • Unique identity and brand
  • Interior design with a compelling image that compliments the brand
  • Construction Management
  • Menu development: recipes through to menu manuals and training
  • Operational components, from systems, controls, restaurant technology, general management and execution planning
  • Human resources: all human resources needs, including: manager and employee recruitment process
  • Training: includes training material development, through to training systems, training execution and evaluation
  • Overall our task is to convert the initial concept into a physical reality. We do this by designing distinctive points of differentiation to produce an emotional connection with the customer, thus delivering unparalleled business performance and unequalled brand loyalty.
