Our Chief Menu Surgeon: Michael Bell

#TheDoctorIsIn – Now Accepting Patients!

Menu Surgeon Marketing is the brainchild of Michael Bell, a veteran in the field of restaurant marketing. Since early 2006, he has worked with thousands of restaurant owners, chefs & managers to make their operations more profitable and more attractive to the dining public.

Michael’s roots in marketing began in 1998 & since then he has worked in all facets of the industry. He began his career as a graphic designer at a regional advertising agency, until finally landing a dream job in corporate America for a major foodservice provider. Learning the ins-and-outs of the food industry was the perfect combination of two of his favorite things: great food and design.

In early 2017, Michael started his own company, MENU SURGEON MARKETING, to focus on helping small to mid-sized businesses with creative marketing solutions. We are experts in Website Design and Hosting; Social Media and Reputation Management; Logo Design; and of course, Restaurant Marketing.

We love to consult with restaurant owners to plan the face-lifts for their menus. Through a combination of sales-focused design, in-depth financial analysis, a keen understanding of psychological stimuli, & mouth-watering food photography, we create menus that make customers hungry and the restaurant’s profits increase.  Like a SURGEON, Michael can dissect, analyze, and reconstruct any menu to create a healthier, more efficient sales vehicle. The menu is the marketing backbone of any restaurant operation. If it is healthy, and doing it’s job, it becomes the base upon which all the restaurant marketing and branding will be built.

Let Michael’s creative mind and experience work for you! Contact us to set-up an appointment.
