Flat-Fee Advisory Services
Many companies struggle with the need for a research expert that not only understands and interprets data, but can make the connection – in a few brief points – to your business. In our experience, food companies lack the necessary resource to develop, write, translate and orally communicate raw and formatted research reports. Foodservice IP’s On-Demand Advisory services delivers this support when you need it at an excellent value. Click here to learn what’s included in our budget-friendly annual membership.
Strategic Planning and Risk Mitigation
In the midst of the COVID-19 aftermath and record inflation, failing to support brands or examine core customers’ changing needs can jeopardize performance over the long term. Companies that put customer needs first and nimbly adjust strategies, tactics, and product offerings in response to shifting demand are more likely than others to flourish both during and after a recession. Foodservice IP’s new program, Surviving & Thriving in Today’s Mixed Economy is designed to help food companies fine-tune their strategies according to the new normal.
Business Planning & Strategy Consulting
Navigating the food and beverage industry requires vision, discipline and a sound strategic plan. Whether it is a new division or concept, Foodservice IP consultants can deliver a solid road map to clients looking to increase profitability while reducing costs.

Sales Support and Acceleration
Sometimes sales organizations need a little “nudge” to penetrate national and regional foodservice accounts. Our proven methodology of contacting, qualifying and setting up viable candidates for clients reduces the search costs and accelerates the closing ratio of your sales teams.

Consumer, Customer and Competitor Insights
We help clients apply needs-based research and segmentation techniques that get to the real drivers of shopper and consumer behavior and help identify the most promising target groups. We believe understanding the competitive space from a 360-degree view is critical to developing sustainable strategies and bases of competitive differentiation.
The food and beverage industry is ever-changing and heavily dependent upon the health of the overall economy. Patrons tend to purchase more freely when employment, disposable income and Consumer Confidence measures are high – and vice versa. At Foodservice IP, we explore the long-term impact of economic, legislative, environmental and channel-specific activities on a client’s business.
Foodservice IP’s food and beverage experts understand the risks clients face when deciding to launch a new product or enter a new market. We provide a comprehensive methodology that outlines the client’s internal situation, market forces, stakeholder attitudes, behaviors and usage as well as a final “go or no go” recommendation with proposed contingencies for each potential direction.
