We save manufacturers and restaurants anywhere from 25 to 50% on their food/beverage concept development costs and cut time-to-market in half. This is possible because of our state-of-the-art test kitchen and consumer research facility and cost-effective process. Below you’ll find several case studies highlighting the food/beverage concept development and other work we do. You can also find a complete list of our clients here. To begin a project of your own, contact us.

Case Studies

Our culinary team created seafood appetizers for Phillips that were then tested in our consumer research facility.

FDR and JQI have worked together on a number of projects including culinary concept presentations for dragonfruit.

Together, we created a pizza platform that launched just six short months after the start of the project.

Snooze and the FDR team work together to source ingredients, complete nutritional analyses, and more.

TESTIMONIALS

William Philip Brand III, CPA, CFO/COO

“We worked with the whole FDR team on a broad and expansive project which helped us leverage and refine our current menu offerings and develop an innovative future product roadmap. So far, we’ve rolled out about 10% of what we have planned and we’re very happy with the early results of the LTOs and new beverages, including cold brew lemonade.”

"I was looking for a way to better connect with national accounts and had heard a lot of good things about FDR. They've lived up to the hype. The team always makes themselves available to discuss opportunities and has helped me better approach our customers, too."
