José Andrés Group (JAG)—the culinary powerhouse behind F&B concepts like Zaytinya, Nubeluz, and Jaleo—has launched a new division, José Andrés Consulting. The advisory will support up-and-coming and expanding F&B brands with operations, design, financials, and real estate building.
Customized services can be tailored to the needs of any sized business, with specialist insight, hands-on management, and scalable assistance for diverse projects delivered by experts with 95 combined years of experience.
José Andrés Consulting works directly with clients on the entire design and build process—from project management and oversight to interior and exterior design as well as systems and infrastructure. In addition, the team can advise about financial planning, real estate site selection, and information technology systems, as well as offer insights into raising capital, secondary markets, and regional professional resources.
“Our team has a remarkable breadth of experience in creating memorable, successful and purpose-driven restaurants and bars. We know intimately the challenges and opportunities facing businesses today,” said Sam Bakshandehpour, president at José Andrés Group. “Through this new consulting arm, we will be able to help other businesses grow and prosper, tapping into exactly what they need to achieve that success.”
Named for chef and founder José Andrés, JAG is fueled by one primary goal: changing the world through the power of food. The company has more than 30 restaurant concepts around the world ranging from food trucks to the two-Michelin-starred Minibar by José Andrés, plus a multimedia platform centered around food-related stories and characters as well as the culture of food.
