Equipping Leaders in Food Services Industry Through Summit’s Tailored Training Solutions

When it comes to the food services industry, training and development requires a holistic approach, recognising that each food services business is unique. 

Partnering with our clients, we begin by conducting a comprehensive needs analysis, delving into various aspects of their operations. This focused, on-the-ground process allows us to identify areas that require optimisation and improvements. With our tailor-made training solutions and deep expertise in the food services space, we enable you to overcome challenges, elevate customer experiences, and drive growth to your business’s full potential. 

A Case Story: McDonald’s Gold Standard Transformation

Consider our collaboration towards transformation with McDonald’s. Their pursuit of the “gold standard” of service wasn’t limited to their iconic golden arches; it extended to elevating the service experience for every guest. Summit became their chosen partner to develop and deliver a customer service gold training programme that encompassed over 500 staff across South Africa’s provinces.

In this endeavour, we didn’t merely offer training; we immersed ourselves in the McDonald’s culture. We spent time behind the counter and behind the scenes to truly understand their values, goals, and unique style of delivery. The result? Over 400 customer experience managers and store managers attended our guest service gold programme, translating into a resounding success.
