“We spend far too many resources on searching for an excuse not to do something that we know would benefit us, rather than just engaging a solution in the first place.”

~ Jeffrey Summers, Founder|Principal Summers Hospitality Group

GrowthWorx™ is the SHG consulting program for business development. Clients who request this service either are at a loss as to what direction their businesses should take, or they know where they want to go but are unsure how to get there. I can assess your organization’s strategic plan or help you develop one that includes a clear blueprint for action and then execute it.

I Build Strong Brands


My pro-growth consulting services are focused on optimizing results and helping operators maximize their business’s potential.

After discussing your needs and opportunities, I customize a proposal that contains specific objectives, measures, and options for how we may work together to achieve your desired outcomes.

I engage in all aspects of hospitality management and have a proven track record in developing brands and turning these brands into market-leading businesses.

I provide systems and services that improve all areas of your hospitality business.

Each engagement is different. Each one has different variables at play, actors, strengths, weaknesses, markets, etc… Not to mention that each business is in a different stage in its life cycle.

As with all my programs, there is no time-based fee component for this program. I begin after the plan is approved and work through to the completion of all outcomes, no matter how long it takes. Due to the unique nature of this work and the unique demands of each individual brand, the investment for this program can only be quoted once we determine the scope of your project.

We will talk over with you what your goals and objectives are, determine appropriate outcomes and a baseline for starting the project and then plan and execute at your location.

Process

  1. We listen to you as you outline your need.  Sometimes we utilize OnsiteReviews.
  2. We then devise an innovation strategy for your business and price it according to the amount and degree of work we need to provide in order to achieve your goals and desired ROI.
  3. We then offer you three options with varying degrees of value.
  4. You then select your option, make payment and then we schedule the work.

Things to Consider

  • Travel/Geography. We have one fixed price for all week-long (5 business days) travel and accommodation expenses anywhere in the continental United States – $1500.00, which can be paid (for longer engagements) on a month-to-month basis. Outside of the lower 48, we expense travel and accommodation at cost based on pre-planned travel rates.  After working with clients in 49 states and 13 countries, the one thing that sticks out most about location is that it doesn’t matter. Planes, trains and automobiles make it easy to get anywhere relatively cheap and easy.  Even with international travel, it’s no longer an issue. The question is, what is the most effective means of accomplishing the goal?
  • Workload. How much of the actual work will you do and how much do you need me to do? Most projects involve both Coaching and Consulting. Obviously, the more work you or your team are able to do, the more economical the project.
  • ROI. This is a business investment and like all business investments, it should have a stipulated return. We will analyze your situation and give you what we think is an achievable return (in $$$).
  • Free consultation. When in doubt, just ask.
  • Guarantees. See the SHG Guarantee. 
  • Tax Deduction(s): Most professional service fees (consulting, legal, accounting, etc…) are tax deductible as a business expense. Check with your accountant to ask about your specific situation.
  • Flat Fees vs. Hourly Fees. Each project is priced based on the specific needs of the client. SHG® charges flat fees for each program or service – there are NEVER any hourly fees or added fees or hidden fees – nor do we ever agree to any “profit sharing scheme”.
    Why? The way we see it, clients are best served by innovating their business or achieving opportunities as quickly as possible. Prolonging the efforts to do so, for purely financial reasons on the consultant’s part, is totally unethical and a true sign of an amateur.
