FSSM believes optimizing performance and profits for existing or start-up restaurants/foodservices are achieved through the commitment to proper planning and design, documentation and training, use of timely and accurate information, systems development and implementation, and follow-up.

Whether your operation is large or small, a single unit or multiple location enterprise, the essential business practices above are imperative to any high performing operating team. The details of each practice may be scalable to the business and its size, but they are all relevant applications to sustaining business success.

A restaurant’s financial success, among other factors, relies heavily on the filling of its seats for each and every period of service. Insuring every dining experience guarantees its dining patron will return, and return with frequency, should be your management teams primary focus. Providing this focus is often easier said than done; management paper work, procurement, human resource issues, training, website management, and other tasks distract and apply demands on management's time.

Unlike larger organizations, which may have staff to fulfill these important roles, your business probably does not. Having on-staff specialists for each area of business focus may not be financially feasible.

Owners must have proactive practices fulfilling these services, whether internal or external of the organization. Outside investors and commercial lenders will need assurances that these areas of expertise and support are covered and accounted for in your business operating model.

M provides such expertise and support services with affordable fee structures customized to their client needs. Examples of fee structures include: "by the project", "solutions-based", "retainer-ships", or  "time and expense" approaches.
