Charlottes in the Pantiles
Our latest opening in Royal Tunbridge wells Kent, Charlottes in the Pantiles saw a 2 year project come to fruition in the start of May 2023.
Owner Neil Wright got in contact with us at Lumiere, having run a number of successful businesses, this was his first foray into Hospitality. Deciding he needed the services of a Hospitality consulting company, Neil reached out to us several months ago to help him achieve success.
How we helped
Charlottes had already been designed and the fit out was well underway. Predominantly a premium cocktail bar with an all day dining menu. The kitchen space was at a premium with around 60 covers inside and out it was really important to create a menu that was not only right for the clientele and the brand, but also achievable from a small kitchen.
The other important caveat for the owners of Charlottes was to make sure there was plenty of gluten free and vegan options.
We created a menu based around the concept of social dining, small plates, flat breads with different toppings and quality local produce from, Tempus Foods
And introducing some purchasing tech with REKKI
which for many small businesses has been really beneficial.
Having performed a tasting, using the clients kitchen, we helped with the purchase of the small equipment, setting up HACCPS, recruitment of the kitchen team, crockery purchase, recipe cards, costings, P&L and of course supporting through the opening weekend.
