Rob Sokol Rob Sokol Chief Operating Officer
Washington National Cathedral
"The National Cathedral retained The Optimum Group to provide us with an initial feasibility study, lead an RFP process, and finally help us select the best operator for a new, highly anticipated café on our campus. The café itself has proved to be an invaluable asset, bringing folks on the campus and around the neighborhood together, as a way to support our greater mission, and as a new revenue stream to support our programming.  I am pleased to say Optimum’s recommendation has exceeded our expectations and with their help we designed and built a very successful café."
Michael Rosenberg Michael Rosenberg President
Coco Moka Café
"We have contracted with The Optimum Group for concept and menu content development for all our cafés as well as for the development of all operating procedures, opening and training requirements. They have performed beautifully and we would be happy to recommend their performance and quality of work to anyone. We plan to use them as new cafés are brought on line; they clearly know the restaurant business."

The Optimum Group: Performance you can count on.
