It’s Simple: Success Leaves Clues

Why Hire King Street Consultants?

The surest way to go from a couple of locations to a couple hundred locations is with a team of people who have already done it successfully. Most small brands can’t afford really experienced C-level leadership, but they can afford a fraction of their time.

We want to help you find the best possible people possible, not just the best that you can afford. King Street Strategic Management Consultants are highly experienced, seasoned Industry professionals available to you on a fractional basis to suit your budget and help with operations, training, real estate, marketing, technology, human resources, construction, brand development, communication, public relations, operating systems, recruiting, team building, complete franchise support, and the list goes on.

King Street offers a complete solution for all of these channels at a fraction of conventional c-level costs. Brands that need experienced leadership and guidance cannot afford top-level executives in conventional roles, but it is essential to have this leadership. This is where King Street is the most effective and viable option. This is what we call “fractional c-level support”.

King Street provides complete c-level solutions with a perfect fit of support within the operating budget of any size brand(s). Our executive team has played essential roles in successfully scaling the following brands including Five Guys, The Halal Guys, California Tortilla, Mamoun’s Falafel, and Ike’s Love and Sandwiches.

Let King Street Consultants help you build and manage your business, at a cost you can afford.
