Michael Vale is a 'battle hardened' Sydney food and beverage inventor-operator-consultant and project manager, and a major player in the local hospitality industry, with over 39 years hands-on experience in the Australian market.
In that time Michael has conceptually invented, organised financial groups,created and launched over 35 Sydney based operations, with two international projects, one in midtown Manhattan, New York City, and one in a five star luxury resort on the tropical island of Fiji.
Always underpinned by a strong commercial 'Point of Differentiation' these operations were built by Michael and his team, with the vast majority financed by 'passive' local and international investors introduced to the project by Michael and his extensive network crew based in Sydney and Melbourne.
Michael also shares a strategic alliance and mission specific partnership with the team at the 'Food Business Consultancy Group' www.foodbusinessconsultancy.com.au Nine highly qualified Sydney professionals, working at the 'cutting edge' of unique Sydney conceptual inventions in alcohol-food and ground breaking visual entertainment concepts, consulting to high profile branding names such as Murray's Brewery-Gloria Jeans Coffee and Hurricanes Steakhouse.
BUYING A BUSINESS. WHY PAY GOODWILL? Why on earth would anyone pay 'top dollar' for goodwill in a new F&B business, when it is so easy to simply produce it in the Sydney market, with a new ground breaking hospitality concept, and expand on from there with third party investors, operating under your own trademark and your branding name?
(Click on: why pay for goodwill page) and view dozens of potential hospitality opportunities ready for commercial exploitation in the Sydney and possibly greater Australian market.
Michael's personal business philosophy for today's industry is very simple: There is virtually no point trying to move forward if everyone else in town is moving in the exact same direction! Dont just be part of the next "BIG" thing, Be the next 'BIG' thing!
Michael makes no secret of his time-tested concept. Start something new, a unique new 'flagship' operation, make it 'Sizzle' with just one ground-breaking concept. We then bring in investors & make it grow on 'your' terms. There are a dozens of operations that are riding high on the creation of a new commercial concept, some building huge 'empires' from just one new hospitality idea, & making it their own.
Why listen to Michael Vale? After nearly four decades in the industry, Michael Vale is one of Sydney's most highly respected and credible hospitality experts and conceptual creators. He comes to any new project with a world of hands-on experience and a mountain of first hand local knowledge.
He travels the world viewing the latest in unique and iconic hospitality ideas and trends, resulting in the representation of a host of international brands wishing to enter into the Australian market via a Sydney 'flagship' operation. (click on: international brands)
Michael is a powerhouse in solving complex retail solutions, expert in the art of inventing & creating new avenues of revenue for existing food & beverage operations, and in the conceptual development & reinvention of Sydney Cafes-Bars-Restaurants & Pubs.
If Michael can help create & launch a 22 seat restaurant 'floating in the sky' hanging off a crane-high over Sydney harbour resulting in massive media & national TV coverage, imagine what skills & talents he could bring to your new or existing operation?
In 2004 BRW Magazine chose to do a double page story on Michael's business philosophy in the hospitality industry. In 2014 Qantas Insider Magazine voted Michael's Cafe Del Mar project at Cockle Bay as one of the 'top ten' rooftop bars in the world.
