Our Current Range of Courses

The industry is littered with the corpses of businesses that tried and failed. Because we care so much that our clients know how to make their business a success, we developed our short, sharp, focused and fun Business of Food Courses

These courses were designed using our many years of knowledge and experience to provide the absolutely essential knowledge and skills needed to make it in the Food Service Industry.

Because we know why Restaurants, Cafes, Pubs and Coffee Shops don’t work, we also know how to make them work. All of this information, experience, knowledge and skills is packaged for you so that you are fully prepared for this challenging and exciting industry.

As well as courses for the newcomer to the industry such as The Business of Food, we also deliver courses for existing operators such as The Business of Pub Food in partnership with the Vintners Federation of Ireland and The Business of Staying in Business for those who would like to take time out to assess their business and plan for the future.
