Developing Restaurant Companies

About Three Cups Yard

Jan van Delden

Three Cups yard is the restaurant management consultancy company of Jan van Delden, a seasoned Hospitality professional, with single-unit and multi-site operational, organisational and development experience on senior management and director level. My international work history spans over 25 years in high-level free-standing and corporate environments. Specialised in operational management and development of systems and procedures, creative concept development, business consultancy, site selection & development, branding & marketing, start-up and financial turnaround management.  

What do we do?

Very simply: We're helping small and medium size hospitality businesses to grow. From start-ups to longstanding restaurants & bars, from Quick Service restaurants to multi-Michelin star dining, we're advising and guiding  entrepreneurs to make their

business better, develop plans to expand and help them implementing strategy.

Using our specialised partners, who all have their own proven track record and are all as dedicated, we add extra value to our offering. Whether it is through our franchising partner FGD or our HR consultancy partner VIA-UK or any of the other partners, the advice and guidance provided is always to the point and practical. To help the entrepreneur.

And how do we do that?

Having run restaurants, bar & clubs for decades on many different levels, we've become a great all-rounder in how to give operational and management advice and consult on setting up a hospitality business but also how not to manage your hospitality concept.

All parts get equal attention: The concept, the financials, the staffing, the standards, the site, PR & Marketing, Purchasing, etc. etc. A genuine all-in package. 

The extra personal care we give through our hospitality management consultancy, makes us an extension of you, the restaurateur.
