Considered a problem solver, Tam owned and operated two successful Asian restaurants in Southern California prior to becoming a foodservice design consultant. Tam understands the concerns of restaurant owners, and what it takes to start and manage a successful restaurant. From site selection to business planning, providing revenue forecast projections and budget planning for kitchen equipment and construction, Tam as an experienced restaurant owner and kitchen designer, will manage your project from start to completion. She will coordinate with Architect and Engineer team, and other specialty consultants, to ensure the flow and function of back of the house as well as front of the house .  This is a complicated industry that requires the owners to do utmost due diligence in order for the business to be open on time and within budget.

The location selection and pre-lease signing is a critical time in the life of the new restaurant. There are important decisions to be made during the planning phase that could affect the viability of your project. Let’s have a complimentary 30 minutes consultation before you sign a lease or start construction, to help you make the right construction or lease decision at this critical time. email us

My past design projects while employed at Cini Little International included: Universal Studios in Dubai, renovation UCLA university, and McMahon Sport Stadium kitchens in Calgary Canada while employed at Cini Little International as a Project Designer.

With vast knowledge and experience within the restaurant industry, from being a restaurant operator and later becoming a designer with academic training from the Art Institute in Interior Design, TAM Interiors will streamline your project from design inception, to procurement of kitchen equipment, and furniture with complete installation and construction to ensure your business will open on time. Several factors we used in all aspects of restaurant design and food service layout are; available space and its conditions, employee movement, health codes, ergonomics, energy efficiency, sensory appeal, flexibility, kitchen arrangement, and how to group kitchen equipment to minimize operational labor and construction costs.
