If you run a destination resort or casino in BC, now is a great time to seek the guidance and expertise of our hospitality consulting services. Phase 3 of the BC Restart Plan has just begun, and businesses (and their customers) are eager to get back to normal. The tourism industry was hit hard by COVID-19 with food and beverage services within the sector affected the most.
How Can a Hospitality Consultant Help a BC Resort or Casino?
Post pandemic, “compliance” may become one of the most used words in the hospitality consulting services industry. To reopen safely and remain open in our “new reality”, resorts and casinos must comply with provincial orders for reopening, including any guidance from WorkSafeBC. Compliance is almost always concerned with meeting the requirements of various federal, provincial and municipal licenses needed to operate your resort or casino.
Thrive Liquor & Cannabis Advisors (as the name suggests) primarily provides retail liquor and cannabis licensing advisory services, although our hospitality consultants also provide support for other types of licensing requirements for businesses in the tourism sector. Our experience may be with BC liquor and cannabis licensing; however, our real skill is understanding and distilling the requirements of any type of federal, provincial or municipal license needed to run your resort or casino.
Our hospitality consulting work is half research, half implementation. The first step in compliance is understanding the fine print of your current licenses, or licenses that you may need in the future. Thrive makes it easy for our clients by making all that confusing fine print easy to understand, then applying for licenses and acting as liaison between various government administrative bodies and business managers. Our work saves businesses time and frustration, while increasing the chances of license approval by ensuring all requirements are met prior to submitting a licensing application. Most license applications are rejected because of incomplete information or documentation.
Generally, our hospitality consultants work with clients one of two ways: researching requirements and providing actionable steps that they can then undertake; or, researching, gathering necessary documentation, and applying for the license or licenses on behalf of the client.
Our work often includes:
- Researching the licensing requirements of a new type of service provided at your resort or casino
- Applying and/or reapplying for licenses
- Helping you understand what it takes to remain compliant
- Creating policies and procedures manuals that help your business remain compliant, safeguarding your valuable licenses
- Working with restaurants, pubs, private liquor retailers and other liquor businesses within the tourism sector
- Working with startup liquor businesses in the hospitality and tourism sector that require help with licensing, premises layout planning, staff training manuals, and policies and procedures manuals.
