Chef Recruiting Service: Manager, Hotel in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam
Previously there have always been Japanese restaurants, but they haven’t necessarily been so popular. The problem has always been these establishments do not serve authentic Japanese cooking. I decided to use Mannet’s recruiting service after sampling Japanese food in Japan for the first time. I was extremely shocked at the difference. Mannet really took time to listen to my situation and although it took some time, finally I was able to open a Japanese restaurant with hired Japanese staff. At first, our guests were mainly Japanese businessman and from then our reputation steadily began to grow. We are now planning on opening our second branch and we now have two Japanese chefs currently working with us.
Dispatching Cooking Instructor: Hotel owner in Brisbane, Australia
Each time one of our chefs would finish working here, the taste of the food we serve would also change slightly, which the customers would also notice. Then I found out about the existence of Japanese cooking instructors in the Internet. I decided to consult Mannet and found it was the first time someone had really listened to my situation. A Japanese chef was dispatched from Japan and taught us Japanese food recipes, the order of food preparation as well as how to cook Japanese dishes. I had never seen someone make food with such enthusiasm before. Initially the chef was dispatched on a three month contract but we extended it by an extra two months because of the great results. Thanks to their assistance, our restaurant has grown tremendously in popularity and we have seen a surge of interest from applicants interested in becoming Japanese food chefs. Next time an instructor will be outsourced for a period of five months but as we’ve seen such a significant sales increase, I would like to consult an expert in lodging to expand this area of my business too.
Consulting Service – Restaurant Renovation: General Manager, Hotel in Casablanca
Previously I used to manage just a café lounge, but my business concept changed after visiting a charming Japanese sweet shop in Kyoto which served Japanese sweets and green tea. It was a wonderful place to relax and I was struck by the outstanding customer service. It was then that I decided to get in touch with Mannet. They provided me with a range of business concepts and based on one of them I refurbished a section of my café into a section for Japanese sweets and tea. My café begun to grow in popularity and soon I had all sorts of visitors stopping by, not only guests staying at the hotel. The financial results are remarkable and my sales have doubled since I introduced the new section to my café lounge.
Consulting Service – Restaurant Startup: Developer, Australia
I first had the chance to sample delicious Japanese soba noodles 10 years ago. Currently I am in charge of a new shopping center development project and as I thought a Japanese soba noodle restaurant would make a fantastic addition to the center, I contacted Mannet who put me in contact with a business interested in expanding abroad. The terms were agreed and a contract was quickly made. In my opinion, having a Japanese food dining option in a shopping center is absolutely essential.
