In response to an increasing demand for high-quality, experienced restaurant and design consultants, AccessPoint Group (www.accesspointgroup.com) opened a new branch office in Los Angeles. The new office, headed by Vice President of Culinary Services James Bailey, is an important addition to the fast growing company.
“Los Angeles is an excellent market for our services,” said Bailey. “We’re a full-service hospitality company, and there’s a lot of growth in the culinary and food and beverage industry, especially in L.A. It’s a hotbed of, and for, foodies, including farm-to-table, mixology, great coffee, and so many different trends.”
A Culinary Institute of America ProChef graduate, Bailey has worked not only as an executive chef for a number of prestigious restaurants – most recently Viceroy Hotel Group – but also as a professional consultant for major hospitality companies. He brings his vast business and culinary knowledge to AccessPoint Group where he helps manage important accounts.
“We offer a diverse background of experts who are able to clearly convey what the restaurant companies really want to say,” said Bailey. “We can deliver the right message to the right audience.”
“AccessPoint Group’s diverse team of experts—ranging from a former senior staffer and, later, member of the Board of Directors of the National Restaurant Association, executive chefs, strategic marketing authorities and web development experts—allows the company a big advantage versus its competitors,” according to CEO and Co-Founder Charles Smith.
“What makes us unique is that we have so much in-house talent, more so than other companies trying just to do PR or marketing,” said Smith. “The Los Angeles office extends our expertise and our reach. We can now better service our clients throughout Southern California on a more local basis.”
AccessPoint Group has offices in San Diego, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C., where they consult for restaurants, franchises, hospitality suppliers, associations, emerging businesses, and Fortune 500 companies.
