Food & Beverage Services
At the heart of every private club's operation is the food and beverage department, which is central to the success of all elements of club operations. The ability to successfully "bring the membership to the table" -- and to keep them there -- is the direct result of an efficient, highly motivated, well-trained staff devoted to serving quality food and beverages and, just as importantly, to guaranteeing a memorable experience for every guest.

The Signature RCS Food & Beverage Audit
The RCS Hospitality Group is known throughout the industry for its comprehensive food and beverage audit, providing a 360˚ operational map of your operation and your team. The audit begins with an analysis of your operation from a bottom-line perspective. Before ever arriving at your club, our experts have already analyzed statistical and financial data and have developed an understanding of your budget and multi-year trends.
Once the on-site portion of the process begins we interview key staff members, observe service and kitchen functions in action, and attend meetings and other interactions between managers and staff.
