Restaurant Opening Consulting

WHOLE FOOD FOR THE SOUL. That is the mantra behind Mary Be Kitchen, Toronto’s newest concept located at Yonge and St.Clair, where the food is fresh, the dishes are wholesome, and the recipes are good for you. The phrase “a square meal”, means a substantial and nourishing meal, which is exactly how restaurant owner Sarah Huggins has developed the menu experience.

The restaurant design is light, bright and features fresh plants all throughout the space, with a custom wallpaper design reminiscent of the tropics. The restaurant is warm and welcoming, creating a personalized experience for diners with small touches that Sarah has incorporated into Mary Be Kitchen.

Our Toronto restaurant consulting team supported Sarah, who doubles as foodie influencer @kiwiandbean, through our Opening Handholding Program. Jenny Companion, our VP of Eastern Operations led the restaurant opening consulting program.

Mary Be Kitchen continues to work with The Fifteen Group for Restaurant Accounting.
