JGL is a boutique consultancy serving the corporate, cultural and educational markets. We are passionate about developing successful food service and retail operations at our client locations. “Success” may mean the hot new destination restaurant in an expanding museum, increasing profitability at a zoo retail outlet, creating a café in a performing arts center that enhances the visitor experience, a revitalized event rental program at an aquarium, or a corporate café with decreasing subsidies.

FROM THE PRESIDENT
“JGL began with a simple vision – to support mission based clients in achieving their operational and financial goals as they relate to on-site food services. Now, after more than 25 years of business, we have expanded our work to include both food service and retail in a variety of client categories; museums, zoos, aquariums, performing arts centers, business & industry, higher education, religious institutions and municipalities. The JGL team is a collective of experienced professionals that are truly passionate about listening, learning and creating effective solutions for all of our clients. We hope to have the opportunity to work with you!”
Tracy Lawler – President
JGL provides food service & retail consultation services for corporate, cultural and higher educational institutions across the country.
What our Clients are Saying
“We recently used JGL to manage an RFP process for café and catering services. We cannot say enough about their professionalism, attention to detail and ability to truly understand the needs of the Foundation. Working through an RFP process during a pandemic could have been incredibly challenging; but JGL’s organized, logical and creative approach made every aspect of the process easy for our team – even the virtual tastings!! We can’t imagine where we would be today if we didn’t work with JGL, they are simply the best in the business!”
We could not have been more pleased with the level of professionalism, service, and counsel that we received from JGL. Tracy and her team brought the expert knowledge of restaurants and other food service operations that we lacked. They helped us to understand our institutional needs around food and food service so that we could then select the right partner and craft the right relationship, while fielding a number of curve balls along the way. I highly recommend JGL for its consulting services.
“From early engagement as we prepared our business plan through final selection of our food service partner, JGL was a delight to work with. They have broad knowledge of the national marketplace, are creative thinkers, extremely professional and personable and they more than deliver on client expectations.”
