Strategic reset in B2C and B2B Hospitality and Food Manufacturing


Rapid strategy reset

Following years of growth and impressive diversification, the local and global pressures of COVID-19 saw this entrepreneurial, quick-service restauranteur and wholesaler act quickly in pressing the reset button to their growth plans for 2021 and beyond. 

Strategic planning review 

Working with the company’s founders, Emmet developed a specifically adapted planning model – which we appropriately named ‘Plan B’. We accompanied the model with two highly structured planning sessions – one focussed on mapping impacts across the P&L and broader business – with another focussed on the identification of risks and opportunities identification, together with project re-prioritisation. We wrapped the outputs in a detailed, re-planning document with a supporting narrative.


The Results

Our ‘Plan B’ model enabled the client’s executive team to understand how their business had changed clearly – and how they needed to change themselves – following months of enormous, global upheaval. Our tailored approach limited the requirement for time investment from an already stretched leadership group whilst delivering a clear and concise replanning document that described the path forward and facilitated the communication of that plan across the organisation.

Today ‘PlanB’ remains part of our toolkit.  Our methodology is used to frame business challenges at critical junctures and help clients action plan for success.
