Developing a brand isn't always simple. At Reinhart, we believe each restaurant has a unique value proposition and its own identity. We help our customers develop their story, by defining who they are, how they identify their operation, what niche they fill, what image they wish to portray, who their target customers are, and more.
Once our partners have a firm handle on their brand identity, we work with them to identify the best marketing tactics to communicate their brand to their audience (both current and prospective customers). The best tactics are those that reflect the identity of the establishment, are memorable, and foster long-term relationships with customers.
Whether it's around a seasonal promo, a holiday or something unique to a businesses operation, Reinhart helps our operators craft unique marketing campaigns to drive sales and bring customers in their door. Reinhart's experts help maximize the benefits of any marketing program. We help our partners promote local specialties, encourage their customers to celebrate an anniversary at their restaurant, get involved in their city’s Restaurant Week, and much more!
Reinhart partners with industry experts to provide operators and their customers with key knowledge and trends around managing their operations, marketing their business, how to increase check size and much more. Our live seminars deep dive into some of the most complex aspects of foodservice, allowing operators to have greater insight into the industry and maximize their success.
Today’s consumers not only expect the best food and service, but they also want fast, flexible and secure payment options. Reinhart has teamed up with credit card processing solutions to help restaurants simplify the payment process, so your staff can focus on service and your diners are satisfied.
Reinhart is the one-stop shop for all operations’ equipment needs. We carry thousands of restaurant supply items that are only a click away, and can be ordered along with the rest of the goods our customers trust us to deliver.
In an effort to make our customers’ lives easier as they open a new operation, we offer food safety training through the ServSafe program. Although regulations vary between states, it is typically required that both managers and chefs get food safety training from a nationally recognized source. Safety is of the utmost importance to us at Reinhart, and the ServSafe program helps ensure that our customers are in compliance with important safety regulations.
When it comes to safety and compliance, there is no compromise; however, we understand that achieving safe certification can be an added stress when opening a new business. That’s why we’ve extended our reach to make the process as easy as possible for our customers. Many of Reinhart’s team members have become Certified ServSafe Instructors, who are authorized to teach ServSafe classes. We also have a number of Registered ServSafe Proctors who are authorized to administer ServSafe exams.

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to wait staff training. At Reinhart, we customize our training services based on each customer's unique concept. We acknowledge that restaurant owners and servers have different interests, ranging from guest experience, to overall service, to managing workload, and more.
In order to commit to our customers, we must also commit to their customers and, therefore, to their servers. Reinhart’s series of wait staff trainings have become a staple of the operator's in-house training programs, and are just another example of how our customers get it right from us.
A tried and true option for controlling cost in the kitchen is to explore varieties and alternatives for pricier ingredients in dishes. Reinhart helps its customers through menu analysis, allowing them to discover expensive items that can easily be swapped out for something more cost-effective – think: local and in season.
We provide our customers with a wide variety of products that meet the ever-changing needs of their operation – and the tastes of today’s consumers – at the right price. From lesser-known cuts of meat to protein alternatives, we get our customers the products needed to keep their costs under control.
Menu engineering can be a daunting prospect for foodservice operators. It's a lot of work, and our customers already have a jam-packed "to-do" list; however, the alternative—sticking with the status quo—can be risky for business. Operators may be leaving money on the table by allowing slim margins to dwindle. Reinhart is dedicated to helping our customers make the most of their menu, and as an advisor, we offer innovative ideas and suggestions to take their menu to the next level. Specifically, we help our customers:
- Compile current sales information and provide a menu benchmark for effectiveness
- Evaluate and analyse their current menu
- Plan the contents of their menu, by incorporating compelling language, branding and creative merchandising techniques
- Design menu layout so that it reinforces and enhances their image and cuisine
- Print and deliver their menu
We help craft consistent, creative menus for our customers that propel them to success.
