Who We Are

We are the HGE (Hospitality, Gastronomy and Oenology) consultancy – a passionate, creative, business-oriented team, happy to provide a wealth of knowledge and experience to you, our clients.

We provide advice in all aspects of the restaurant and hospitality industry. We develop and implement solutions to challenges in your business and transform your operations into success stories. We create and execute concepts for new, exciting and profitable businesses.

We have operated as business consultants since 2012. This core business derives from experience gained in Food &Beverage (F&B) operations stretching back 25 years. The team is led by company founder, Denis Galić, who brings extensive experience and expertise from leading hotels and restaurants. Galić uses his business acumen to achieve a clear objective for the company: ensure top results for the clients.

That is what we do responsibly, devotedly and wholeheartedly.

We engage where challenges seem daunting or opportunities are not being seized. We intervene when a business is looking for differentiation, innovation or international experience. We join you to maximize your business potential.”

Why Us?

Our consultancy succeeds because we understand your business. We have been there for years and done it on a senior level. We nurture a hands-on approach and collaborate during the project until completion.

We do our consultancy together with you and for you. We tailor it because your business is like nobody else’s business. We make sure you understand and embrace new / improved concepts of your business before we leave as you have to be able to continue implementing new models of business operations once we’ve finished. Our goal is to produce workable solutions that will ease your operations, increase your profit and ensure long-term growth.

Education & Training

The ability to transfer our own knowledge and expertise to other people is very rewarding to us. And we love to teach and train what we know best. Be it through advanced programs for experienced employees, or the essential basics for hospitality beginners, we combine theory and practice to enhance our students’ competences and capabilities.

Here again we are able to tailor the courses as per your business priorities and your staff needs.

Denis is a certified lecturer for F&B and an author of many handbooks on F&B topics.

Chef Mentoring

Some people enter the world of kitchen operations with a passion for flavours and creating great food, whilst others may enter purely by chance. No matter their reasons, our mission is to enhance their cooking knowledge & skills, as well as economic competences. That’s because, not only must chefs be able to deliver irresistibly delicious meals each and every day, but they also need to run the kitchen as a profitable business unit.

Denis has been both Executive Chef and Patron Chef at many leading hotels so will uplift your kitchen staff capability to an entirely new level.
