The Studio
A chef masterfully creates original dishes by selecting various ingredients and using his expertise to decide just how much and the nuance of blending it all together to produce a memorable dish.cb5 Hospitality Consulting is a creative think tank that similarly createsone of a kind food & beverage concepts using their vast experience and expertise to craft turn-key food & beverage solutions for the hotel industry.

The Lab
“The Lab” as we fondly call it, instills innovation including recipe testing, video training production, seminars…and the occasional ping pong tournament.

The Field

With well worn passports, and an acquired appreciation for airport dining (we know all the  air-terminal hot spots globally), we are the Green Berets of the road warrior ranks. There never will be a substitute for boots on the ground implementation as even the best ideas can often be lost in translation.

Being adept at imparting our particular skill set and having perfected the “hand off” to the property team… we can seamlessly execute concepts without diluting their nuance.

When the program has found it’s groove, we gently slip out the back door but not before leaving a hotline connection that remains intact as we continue to manage an ongoing relationship with our family of clients.
