Food and beverage provides Clubs with substantial competitive advantages:
- Positive Business Case. A well-performing F&B venue can translate into a substantial revenue stream for Clubs.
- Point of Difference. Hospitality and food & beverage service can be the differentiator that advances a good Club experience to an exceptional one. The ability to get it right in food and beverage can underpin a Club’s individuality, attracting in-demand membership and increased visitation. In a crowded market, where Clubs vie for attention, a superior F&B offering becomes a key aspect of distinguishing one Club from another.
- F&B plays a crucial role in shaping destinational appeal. A well-curated culinary experience contributes significantly to the destination appeal of a Club, enabling it to prevail over competitors. Members and visitors are drawn not only by the activities within the Club but also by the promise of delightful dining experiences.
- Achieving the wow factor in customer and member experiences is a direct result of seamlessly integrating operational excellence with an attractive built environment. A strategically planned F&B overlay can turn an ordinary visit into a memorable one. The wow factor becomes a catalyst for positive word-of-mouth marketing, driving the Club’s reputation and attracting a broader audience.
- In an era where legislative changes seek to reduce reliance on gaming as the primary revenue driver, Clubs must explore diversified income streams. F&B services offer an opportunity to diminish dependence on gaming revenue and create a more resilient financial model.
Recognising the multifaceted nature of F&B management, some Clubs opt to outsource their hospitality operations to third-party suppliers. This strategic move allows Clubs to tap into external expertise to optimise their F&B offerings. When this is the preferred approach, we at Future Food assist Club Boards and Management to find the right operator for their Club. It’s one approach (of many) that we to offer, to maximise F&B in Clubs.
