Trends and Challenges: State of the F&B Industry in Peru
The seminar seeks to frame the news of the industry in Peru. Identifying what are the macro factors that have affected the restaurants and businesses of A y B in recent years and which will accompany the future. Within the industry specifically, identify what are the new trends of customers and workers. The strategy in the business of A y B will be increasingly determining the success of an operation. The seminar seeks to introduce the context in which this strategy will be developed.

Gastronomy in the World
Restaurant businesses are replicated around the world and trends in a globalized world go upstream and downstream and even sidestream. Many concepts are replicated, imitated, rejected in different markets. As part of the inputs for the strategy, the seminar seeks to make a pass on what is in the industry worldwide. Review what concepts are working and under what context, as well as know what new features are applied and what are the leading countries in the industry.

Related Industries and Suppliers
Gastronomy businesses, especially in Peru, should be less and less limited to a typical restaurant operation. The purpose of the seminar is to introduce the assistant to the universe of related businesses that appear as opportunities for the development of the current industry. The provisioning, delivery, systems, digital marketing, conceptualization, criticism and PR, production, outsourcing of steps in the kitchen, are all business models that the restaurant will do well to know and that can be presented as business alternatives as or more profitable, valid and worthy of recognition as the kitchen itself.

Shared Economy
This seminar seeks to emphasize the way in which the industry today faces the economic realities and pressures that restrict creativity. The seminar seeks to share ways in which F&B operations share income, investments in CAPEX, investments in sales infrastructure, investments in systems, development and labor. The objective of the seminar is that the sharing tool is always an alternative, where it makes strategic sense, for the incipient gastronomic business.

Conceptualizing for the Boom
This seminar seeks to list the edges in which the entrepreneur must think when conceptualizing his operation within the gastronomic field. It is emphasized that in the world of cooking restaurants have to meet two critical moments to succeed. They must do an excellent conceptualization and they must execute perfectly. The step of conceptualization is therefore key and must anticipate the challenges of the future. The seminar seeks to make the concept of a restaurant a conscious business decision and not the result of chance.

P&L as a Strategy
In gastronomy, as new entrepreneurs in the industry quickly realize, the margins are small and control is determinant of success. The seminar is focused on teaching a management report to the entrepreneur that allows him to understand his entire business. Not only giving you tools of typical industry ratios, but turning the analysis of the report into a template to track your operation. The objective of the seminar is for the entrepreneur to get out of his head that the P&L is only for the financier, and that it is rather for the operator and that there is no successful restaurant that cannot read and correct his business from the P&L.

The Letter and Chef
The Charter is an essential strategic element of a gastronomic business. The seminar seeks to leave as a teaching that the letter is pure strategy. It determines the size of the kitchen spreadsheet, the level of investment in equipment, the number of suppliers that will be taken, the cost of target foods and, at the same time, is an essential marketing instrument. The basic concept of the seminar is to teach the entrepreneur that the relationship between letter and chef is not closed to the business, on the contrary, it is the essence of it. Part of this seminar will be taught by the Faculty of Interdisciplinary Studies.

Marketing, Design and Communication
There are those who think that the gastronomy revolution was consolidated when the design of the development of a gastronomic operation ceased to be functional and became part of the concept. Already when the level of physical evidence of a brand got into the total points of contact of the customer experience, the food and beverage business moved to a new level of complexity expected by the customer. The objective of this seminar is to understand all the ways in which the consumer’s trip can touch the message of a brand, both inside and outside the premises, both before the visit and during and much later.

Gastronomy and Tech
Gastronomy and technology have an unwavering relationship from the beginning. Moreover, the kitchen was cooking even before Prometheus stole fire from the gods. A lot has happened since then. Today, whole kitchens are worked by robots. Attention boxes receive payments and take orders automatically, new technologies allow food storage for months, they are printed on food downloaded from the internet and the world of services and apps has revolutionized everything. The objective of this seminar is, on the one hand, to sweep the technology available in gastronomy. On the other hand, it seeks to generate a critical eye to separate the wow factor from what is strategically useful for the business.
