Management & Consulting

Do you have a space that you think could benefit from the traffic and consumer interest of the food hall movement? Let us take a look. We have options that range from traditional management service agreements to project-based development consulting for those needing a little insight about how the business works best. 


Barre Tanguis

Barre brings a vast knowledge of retail patterns, construction management, equipment sourcing, and project oversight. Having designed and sourced many of the physical components of our award-winning food hall in New Orleans, Barre understands how to keep projects on task and under budget. Barre has developed and operated multiple businesses in the retail sector. He was a co - founder of Launch Pad. 

Will Donaldson

Will brings several years of experience in the food hall business. Having constructed the original framework and designed our software and support systems, he can help with aspects of functional design, financial modeling, vendor sourcing, permitting, legal contracts, pricing structures and more. His former companies, both with successful exits, are Launch Pad and RES.


Architects can come up with layouts, but you need to understand the consumer shopping mind when laying out a food hall. We specialize in aesthetics, functionality, and equipment, specifically for food halls.


When it comes time to get open, we have a tested framework to get all vendors organized, coordinated, and open on time. We manage development, operations, and press to ensure the best delivery on day 1.


We are a full service hospitality company with many years of experience on the front lines of the restaurant business. We know how to build and operate successful teams.
