• Food and Beverage
• Launch/Development of New Facility
• Activity Programming
What if we want a quick, general overview?
Affinity frequently conducts general overviews of clubs - or overviews with an emphasis on a particular issue. These studies begin with a phone consultation, followed by a review of basic data from the club and then a site visit to the club and the primary competitors. The site visit is typically 1-2 days and includes interviews with management and the owner or board members as well as members and customers. A verbal synopsis is presented to the client at the end of the visit along with a Q&A session followed by a written report with findings and recommendations. An in-person final presentation is optional.
How are consulting fees structured?
Affinity can provide advisory services through hourly billing or on a project basis. In the case of a project or do-not-exceed amount, Affinity needs to fully understand the scope of work to provide an accurate proposal.
Does Affinity have a minimum dollar amount for a consulting engagement?
