To Whom It May Concern;
Re; Brita Moosmann, Vesta Consulting Inc.
I have known Brita for
many years and consider her one of the foremost experts in Food & Beverage
in Canada. She has experience in all aspects of operations from kitchens/preparation,
service, menu engineering, cost controls, to marketing and sales. She is able
to utilize these skills to garner support by all food & beverage management
and line staff for the implementation of her profit improvement programs.
Her Food and Beverage Yield Management programs are effective and do generate incremental profits! I have contracted for her services since 1994 for both Coast Hotels (nine hotels with food and beverage revenues of $ 30 million), and O'Neill Hotels (thirty six hotels with food & beverage revenues of $100 million). The profit improvements were substantial and ranged from 7 to 14%. She has a teamwork approach which enables her to successfully implement her programs without the necessity of corporate support.
I would be pleased to offer additional information if requested.

Just a short note of thanks for your ongoing work on our behalf at Hotel Wyndham Montreal. Thanks to your efforts, at the mid-point of the year we have accomplished a turn-around in our Food & Beverage Department's profitability. The turn-around to date exceeds $400,000.00 and we expect and have forecasted a departmental profit for the first time in many years. This improvement substantially improves our asset value, to say nothing of the ongoing in come stream.
This is the third time in as many years that you have been able to substantially impact our F&B departments' structure, product and ultimately, profitability and we appreciate our ongoing professional relationship. Your cool-headed approach to the various problems and challenges you have encountered in these various assignments has been much appreciated by the managers and employers you have worked with. It is rare that a Consultant is as welcome in a business as you have been in our various hotels.
We look forward to your next visit, and our ongoing project to maximize the returns of our now profitable Food & Beverage operations.
