This presentation was put together by Paul here in NYC. It was done at the Essex House. The property is a Marriott Autograph Hotel with a great history in NYC. Currently the property uses all Fortessa product (sorry I put it in there). We are working to get it out. Chef liked many items and is playing around with a few to see which work best for his operation.
When presenting to a hotel here are some key components:
- Show up early and request an area to set up the presentation. Don’t waste your time with the customer setting up.
- Get to the decision maker (chef, f&b, banquet manager, GM, restaurant manager etc)
- Set the table. Bring props…napkins, and holder, place mats etc
- I personally always bring additional product. For example, this was for a new restaurant opening, we also presented some banquet items which they will ultimately purchase because they were displayed.
These are just a few things that have worked for me. Please feel free to make suggestions that have worked for you.
