Jacobs | Doland | Beer is a New York City based foodservice design firm specializing in the planning and construction of commercial foodservice and hospitality venues.

The planning of projects involving commercial foodservice facilities has become increasingly complex. Energy conservation, efficient labor utilization and cost effectiveness are just a few of the areas the planner must be concerned with.

We are uniquely qualified by years of actual experience in planning and overseeing the construction of innumerable foodservice facilities to assist with the planning of this project. Among the services we offer are programming, space allocation, arrangement of kitchen equipment and dining areas, selection and specification of equipment and assistance with the securing of the competitive bids. Many additional planning and management services are available.

J|D|B is an independent management and plan­ning consulting firm. We are not in any way associated with the manufacture, sale, or promotion of any product or system. Our only in­terest is to provide each client with the highest level of professional planning available.

We believe that a consulting firm can only be as effective as the per­sonnel they employee. Therefore, every project regardless of size receives the personal attention of our Project Director who then assigns specific consulting tasks to as­sociates. Total project responsibility always remains with the Project Director who maintains personal con­tact with each project and oversees its progress.

Our approach to planning has always been and continues to be close interaction with the architects, engineers, and other project team members. We communicate often and well, and strive to avoid problems by questioning, analyzing and advising wherever our input can be of value.
