Who We Are
Playground is your partner, not a typical consultant.
Playground Hospitality creates successful new dining concepts, improves existing operations, and extends the life span of established restaurants.
Doug and his team have seen dramatic shifts before and can advise you when to make a fast pivot. Playground Hospitality is guest obsessed and will help you ‘wow’ yours. More importantly, they see the subtle clues that keep your concept from connecting with customers.
As an industry veteran who’s launched dozens of successful concepts and experienced some misses, Doug keeps his clients from repeating expensive mistakes.
Playground thoughtfully pairs culinary talent to its projects, developing chef-driven concepts and updating taste profiles with rising innovators.
Playground’s design and creative partners operate at the intersection of strategy, design and execution to bring concepts to life.
Trend spotters, financial gurus and real estate savants create a strong business foundation to maximize profits and opportunities for expansion.
