We’re Your Greatest Advocate for Your Unique Greatness

Global Culinary Group, a full service restaurant consulting group, was created when the chef and restaurateur clients of Armitage, Inc. began asking for more than just great marketing.

For 25 years, Armitage, Inc. has created multiple marketing successes for global giants and start-up businesses. In 2008, the agency chose to focus entirely on restaurant and resort clients as there’s nothing better than working with individuals who are as passionate about their culinary craft as we are about our marketing craft.

In that timeframe, we began solving problems for our restaurateurs and chefs that extended beyond our marketing strategies. This expanded representation for our restaurants became such a demand that Global Culinary Group – a restaurant development and operations company – was formed.
