Supported by Atlas Metal, the new series features leading FCSI The Americas Professional member consultants discussing the future of foodservice design

FCSI has teamed up with Atlas Metal to produce a new series of audio podcasts. The Dynamic Design series features interviews with FCSI The Americas Professional member consultants addressing the four key ‘P’s that are required when putting together a design-led foodservice project: planning, partnerships, presentation and people.

In episode one, William Caruso FFCSI (PP), founding partner of WC & Partners, Inc. and chair of FCSI The Americas looks at the importance of strategic and practical planning when leading a design-led foodservice project from a consultancy perspective. You can hear the episode, below.

On the importance of preparing effectively at the inception stage of a project, Caruso believes sound planning is crucial. “This is probably the key subject to success in all areas – whether that’s management or design projects. You have to understand who your client is and the complexity of the upcoming project,” he says.

“To do that you have to get some intelligence on the client, who their team is, and what their goals and objectives are. Then you put together your best team that can solve their problems with the minimum of time and the maximum of operational efficiency.”
