TGRCG and the Emerald executive team are improving consistency, service delivery, kitchen timings and cost management within the food and beverage venues. Improved food quality will enhance the already unique restaurant experiences found on the Emerald Heights campus. A review of TGRCG’s assessment findings as well as a strategic action plan supports the Emerald Heights executive team’s enhancement goals.

The Emerald Heights executive team along with TGRCG is also focused on improved messaging to the residents. This will include continuity of brand imaging, interior design, kitchen design and the service model. In addition to leading the transition of one venue on the Emerald Heights campus, TGRCG will also support design of their new Gig Harbor campus, Heron’s Key, scheduled to open in 2016.
