Testimonials

Douglas Fisher of FHG International Inc. was selected and contracted to provide timely assistance in the design of a franchise model for The Sawmill Prime Rib & Steak House. FHG International provided effective knowledge and insight to our project and included best practices in developing a new franchise system and structuring a positive franchise relationship. They are true professionals that tell it like it is in providing real life scenarios and solutions to complex problems. Over the years we have built a long term relationship and have called upon FHG for counsel on issues relating to franchising and other hospitality endeavors. It was and remains a pleasure to work with Douglas and FHG International Inc.

Successful Restaurant Strategies is worthwhile reading for both the budding restaurateur and we more ‘seasoned’ professionals…it took me thirty-two years of trial and error to learn the lessons presented in this book

Thank you for your good advice with respect to CNIB’s Food Service tender call and contract. You provided us with a good context for the on-going management of the food service contract that has been very useful. Eurest continues to provide CNIB with a good café service and have ventured into many catering operations with us. We continue to rent out our Conference Facilities to events up to 350 people per event for conferences, weddings, galas and fundraisers. Eurest and other preferred caterers have provided the food service for the events. Again, your work with us has allowed us to leverage good contracts for CNIB and for our customers. Thank you.
