About

Erica Hope

Founder, Hope Consultants

Hope Consultants was founded in a true love of food, service, and the industry that combines the two perfectly. As operators in the food and beverage space, we expertise in a wide variety of models including QSR, BYOB, casual, fine dining, food trucks, cruise ships and more.

As the founder, some highlights from my experience are below:

  • Worked as Operating Partner where I built and trained an hourly team, introduced programs for catering and delivery, expanded operation hours to discover a new, most lucrative shift, and brought the brand to expansion.  

  • Selected by URBN to lead as Regional Director for the Pizzeria Vetri brand where I oversee all operations across three locations. My tenure has resulted in:

    • Increased sales and OPINC at all locations

    • Streamlined systems, minimizing mistakes and increasing productivity

    • Decreased turnover and increased employee satisfaction

    • Redefined growth and what that means to us as a brand and company as whole

    • Remained open and viable during COVID-19

 

We believe that the business space, particularly F&B, provides leaders the opportunity to be incredibly quick, nimble and creative. As a result, we pull from our experiences to bring operational skill, focus, and outside the box thinking to the table.
