“Sacramento Food and Beverage has been a fantastic company to work with.  As a small, growing company the experience and knowledge gained through Tom and Sidney Bruce has been invaluable to our organization.  They have helped us transition from three autonomous entities into a more efficient, systematic corporation.  We consider Sacramento Food and Beverage to be one of our best decisions.”

“Sacramento Food and Beverage was hired in 2009 as a consultant team to rebrand our restaurant concept, develop a new menu which fit that brand, develop training manuals for both front and back of the house and give us the tools to control our food costs.

Tom and Sidney Bruce were very hands on and flexible throughout the project. They completed our project within the budget and were excellent in looking at ways in which we could save money. To this day the results have been beyond what we had forecasted and we continue to see the benefits of their work.

Tom’s attention to detail and ability to communicate effectively with my staff and his desire to assist our Chef in any way was essential to the success of the project.

The software program for our cost controls is very user friendly. Sidney was very responsive to our ever changing needs throughout the project and was easily contacted by email and phone during our non-business hours. Sidney adapted this program to meet our wishes and needs.

It was a breath of fresh air to work with someone who would listen to what we wanted and our ideas. It was Tom’s expertise and imagination that brought the project to completion. Thanks again to Tom and Sidney for making all that work a fun and exciting experience.”

“Tom Bruce is a miracle worker.  On several occasions now he has worked his magic in various operations that we have – most notably John Brewer’s Traven in Waltham and 75 Chestnut on Beacon Hill.  Tom worked with us on new menu items and the overall menu philosophy, resulting in successful operations and successful business overall.”

“…but, more importantly, I am overwhelmed by the number of people who have helped us along the way.  You are one of those people.  So, I just want to say thank you for all the years and all the help.  You have been an invaluable source of support, advice and friendship.  I just hope you will pause sometime today and think back on not only all the help you have given me and our company, but all the rest of the people with whom you come into contact and have helped along their journey. ..So, thanks again for being there throughout the process.  You are a real part of the milestone…”

“From our very first meeting I realized that Tom had a wealth of knowledge and experience to bring to the table. Over a short period of time Tom has made our menu more contemporary while improving on the balance, food quality and cost. With his easy manner he has endeared himself to my entire crew, who now look forward to hearing his new ideas, on his regular visits.

In July 2008 I opened a second operation, which I could not have accomplished without his help. He was involved in a hands on way in every aspect of setting up the new business, kitchen design, menu planning and recruiting and training. His experience extends into every department of the restaurant. Tom’s associate Sidney was also very involved in the setting up and implementation of administrative procedures and policies. “
