When Dean started with us we knew we had good turnover but we did not know how much net profit we were making, let alone what are break even point was.
During his time with us he deconstruct the entire food menu, linking with a recipe to the POS, formulated COS and instigated portion control.
With all this information at hand Dean was then able to, produce a definitive Profit & Loss document, make financial projections for the forthcoming year. As he was now aware of the operational needs, SOP'S were produced.
With the menu review imminent his theoretical GP% sheets were invaluable to adjust pricing to a level we were comfortable with. A brief was given, designer nominated and he has given us input into layout and order

I appointed Dean Appleton from A Moveable Feast Consultancy to compile a forensic report on a bar, in Boksburg, which I have shares in.

He was assigned to report on the following

  • A detailed P&L with comments and recommendations

  • An analysis of the historical, current and future of the business

  • An analysis on the Management of the business by the other shareholders to date, with recommendations

Over a two week period he diligently and methodically compiled his report. Meeting with accountants, Point of Sale representatives, stock control analysts, event organizers, FOH & BOH staff, Management and fellow share holder to ascertain the true standing of the business.


Once established a concise report with recommendations for each section was compiled. The bullet point conclusion was an extremely useful tool to move forward and grow the profitability of the operation.

With such a diverse brief in the different ventures Dean’s input was tailored to suit each need.
