Success Stories

Serenite Restaurant Exterior

Fine French Dining Helping with Addiction

Each restaurant is unique, and we are adapting our fine-dining, haute cuisine model to several different communities. You can read about the first such adaptation, Serenite Restaurant, which is firmly on the path to self-sustainability and significant impact, here. While the stories are compelling, just as important as the social impact is the quality of the food and service. Check out the Yelp and OpenTable reviews and you will see: EDWINS consulting works.

Our second project, Ohio City Pizzeria, partnered us with the West Side Catholic Center in Cleveland, Ohio to reopen an old school Italian restaurant that would also help employ the population that they worked with. Those who are homeless or need help finding a safe place to live.
