Create Sustainability

We collaborate with independent restaurant companies to grow their brands, expand their market footprint, fine-tune their operations and lift their bottom line.

Provide Clarity

We advise our clients on how to better reach their goals and put process in place to set them up for success.

Deliver Direction

We provide action plans to address areas of improvement and growth, set direction and oversee the implementation of said action plans to keep your business growing in the direction you desire.


ForkLift Consulting Group was founded because we are foodies who love the restaurant scene in Dallas-Fort Worth, and we want to see local businesses not just survive, but thrive.

We discovered that some restaurants needed help in order to be and stay relevant, and they needed direction to remain sustainable for the long term. That's where we come in.


We cultivate small startups that are aspiring for greatness and looking to identify process and best practices.

Existing Concepts

We help raise the bar for existing concepts looking to rediscover their path and direction.

Unique Concepts

We elevate unique concepts looking to break through a cluttered space and help them to truly shine in a sea of sameness.

Let's reflect on this, you're here for a reason. Let us show you how we can provide the path to success.
