Our strategy is simple. We invest and strategize with business owners to allow their restaurants to reach full potential. When clients first contact us, it’s typically out of frustration. Many are running successful businesses but don’t have the time or resources available for further development. We begin our client relationship with a heart-to-heart conversation about the current state of business, investments, and future goals. When we know we can help your establishment flourish, we begin work on a strategic business plan. If we don’t believe Empress is a good fit for your needs, we will help you find a company that is better suited to your situation. As we support your business expansion, we work to ensure that your business remains true to itself. Too often, restaurant expansions change to appeal to larger audiences, losing the charm that made them successful. We will help you remain successful by keeping your niche restaurant atmosphere unchanged, regardless of how far you choose to expand.
The boutique restaurant business is growing at exponential rates across the country. Consumer spending has increased, and the population is eating out at unprecedented rates. Empress is leading the evolution of boutique restaurant. Our concentration on one market has allowed us to become a leader in our industry. The potential of this field has no limit, and we plan to be there every step of the way.
