Synergy Restaurant Consultants has been retained by Patrick Myers, President and CEO of Coliseum Entertainment to help develop, open and manage “The Coliseum” a 32,000 square foot action packed entertainment center at 415 St Johns Church Road in Camp Hill, PA. “This is no ordinary entertainment complex!” says Danny Bendas, Managing Partner Of the Synergy Consulting Group.
“The Coliseum was designed with a strong food and beverage strategy in mind offering both high quality and variety. The entertainment Megaplex features two levels with the latest gaming technology and eighteen bowling alleys with live D.J.s spinning high energy music. The main level features a sports bar, a casual theme full service restaurant called Rock & Brew and a Maggie Moos Ice Cream Shoppe. The lower level features hand tossed gourmet pizzas and appetizers to support the bowling crowd. Three full service bars froth with twenty beers on tap and experienced bartenders versed in every imaginable libation” explained Bendas.
“Opening a restaurant of this magnitude” is no easy task explains Patrick Myers. “It has always been our goal to become a multi-unit, regional entertainment operator and we needed an experienced consulting firm who understood restaurant management systems and had extensive experience with chain operators.” After an extensive consultant search we decided on Synergy Restaurant Consultants because Dean and Danny promised me that they would always be by my side and save me from myself. The synergy consulting group understood our passion for food and need to execute our food, beverage and hospitality strategy to achieve our financial goals. Opening a restaurant is no easy task and we needed sound restaurant advice to insure our success.
“This was a very exciting project as it gave our team the opportunity to participate in the conceptual development, design and value engineer the concept. The Synergy team was involved in every aspect from menu development and kitchen design through training and opening. One of the most exciting parts of the project was the facilities design and recipe development process. There was extensive research required to ensure that the food was the hero and that we were addressing all of the food we developed the right menu to support the Harrisburg market. Synergy was involved in all the planning and development stages through to training and the grand opening” says Bendas.
Dean and Danny told us that starting a restaurant is like giving birth and can be a very painful experience if you do not have the right team in place. The Synergy team delivered great food, sound restaurant operating systems and a well trained restaurant management team. “Thank you for delivering what you promised and putting me in the running to be the next HOT CONCEPT!!!” Patrick Myers, President/CEO, The Coliseum
