HKB Designs are not only "industrial certified kitchen and bar designers", we can still cook and shake and are keeping up to date with the latest trends and technology's online and by visiting global trade-show's regularly. We have a deep understanding of what makes a concept work and what type of kitchen or bar you need to make it successful and we can train your employees how to execute the vision. We would go as far and say that you won't find another Industrial Kitchen design firm that can offer the same. Besides all this our obsession to design efficient spaces using technology to help reduce labor impact while improving quality will be your long term benefit.
While a lot of agencies have interior design knowledge and might have some market knowledge they often lack the hands on experience and intricacies on how a restaurant works and what the impacts to operations the local labor market or supply chains have.
Our profound knowledge of both of these coupled with our ability to come up with creative and market relevant concepts, be it a Burger Shack or a Michelin Star restaurant or something in-between, our operational understanding will improve your chances of financial success.
After decades of operating restaurants / bars, and take away coffee markets, reading P&L's and truly understanding of how all factors play together to make a restaurant successful across the Globe, we can provide you actionable in depth analysis like few others can, relevant to your country, market and circumstances. We can also provide hands on collaboration with you and your team to implement them.
Not many organizations can offer this. HKB Designs can!
Suppliers the world over will promise you to put together your OS&E lists together for free........ but.... there is no supplier that can offer you the whole "LIST". From Pots & Pans to Shakers and Jiggers, Plates, Glasses, Flatware to Banquet Action Stations, we can provide a complete customized list with recommended suppliers based on your location, your concepts and your interior design direction and guarantee you won't waste your money on tons of "attic stock", because we know what it takes.
HKB Designs has concepted and developed hundreds of restaurants, bars, and hotels from China to the Caribbean, Europe to the Middle East there isn't a place we haven't experienced. We have have been involved in the detailed planning from inception to openings, from a small Pizzeria to a large Farm to Fork restaurant we have done it all. This vast amount of knowledge has ensured that these were opened successfully with the right support and with an all encompassing plan so that the first guests were not paying guinea pigs. Remember, if you open right, your chances of financial success are exponentially higher than if you don't. From the right training to a social media plan, all building blocks will come together during the last few weeks before an opening. We can provide you with that plan!
Having been intimately involved in restaurant, bar and hotel operations for 40 years across all continents and still having the reputation of someone that can still do it all themselves, we bring credibility to our training that is tailored, relevant, transparent and easily understood by your employees as we still talk the same "language" as they do, while understanding and conveying your goals and visions.
