About Us

We are here to help you achieve that next step or put in place something specific that your team needs.
"We pride ourselves on understanding that it is you, the guest, who knows what is best for your business. We are here to help you achieve that next step or put in place something specific that your team needs. We are here to assist you all the help your Brand needs in order to achieve your goals."
The Laughing Pear Food and Beverage Consulting Group is grateful for your interest in our services. We are eager to share our exciting and innovative ideas with you, whether you need them for your business or your home. We have recently sold our Private Chef/Upscale Catering Division, which allows us to concentrate ALL of our efforts and resources on the other Divisions. These Divisions include:

Guest Service Strategies
Concept Development
Financial Services
Management Consulting
Strategy Consulting
Facility Design
Operations Management

No matter what “Division or Divisions” you are inquiring about, we have absolute confidence that you will be happy 100% with our “Services”. Whether we are serving an amazing Five Diamond property, or the best chain restaurant in town, there is no job that we consider too big or too small. Each “Program” is tailored to fit each and every property. We may work besides you as a coach, work with your team one on one, and/or take care of your drafting needs for a superior kitchen design. However, setting up Food and Beverage “Systems” are by far the most popular. Some examples of these “Systems” include work with both Front of the House and Back of the House operations, plus waste records, temperature logs, proper cooling of foods, cleaning schedules, and daily, weekly, and monthly inventories. The list is just a glimpse of what The Laughing Pear Food and Beverage Consulting Group may mean to you and your investment. The possibilities are endless.

Throughout our website each “Division” is laid out with greater specificity. We encourage every guest who has any level of interest to call for more details. Plus, we offer a first time, complimentary consultation. “Why do we offer the first hour as complimentary?”

We get many people asking that question. Here at The Laughing Pear Food and Beverage Consulting Group we want the best for you, but we understand the state of the economy, and try to assist on every level possible. For a number of owner/operators their business may be their nest egg and we want them to be happy and successful! Everyone deserves someone in side of the ring.

We realize that your business/private resident is extremely important to you - that is why our team members have only the highest of respect for all our guests. Moreover, there is not one team member you would be working with who has not been in food and beverage operations for a minimum of ten years. Lastly and most importantly, we want you to know that we believe in excellent service from start to finish.

The Laughing Pear Food and Beverage Consulting Group continues to be affordable, as we understand the financial dynamics that make up a Food and Beverage operation. Our team focuses on you and you alone and this is how we can deliver, with accuracy, excellence in food and beverage consulting. We are a cutting edge food and beverage consulting company that is team driven and consistently learning new ways to “Service” your teams better! We look forward to speaking in the very near future. Give Chef/Owner David E. Kratky a call now at 435.671.2351 to set up your complimentary consultation.

What Others are Saving About The Laughing Pear Group

EXCEPTIONAL VISION, QUALITY, AND CLIENT CARE! - We cannot begin to say enough wonderful things about The Laughing Pear! We are here in Park City, Utah for the Sundance Film Festival. I am here representing my Film Production Company. So its crucial that we take great care of our clients. This is why we went with Chef David Kratky (Chef/Owner of the Laughing Pear) I have used Chef Dave in the past and of course, I wanted to have him again.

Our event started on Friday and will go until the following Sunday when the Film Festival ends. Chef Dave has put together a marvelous catering venue for our guests. From the moment we began working with Chef Dave, we could tell that he was going to make our event spectacular and worry free. He did just that! We had very specific needs for our guests and Chef Dave handled it with great attention and ease.

Gourmet Fine Dining is exactly what Chef Dave gave to us and My partners and I are having a very memorable time here at Sundance in Park City, Utah.. Due in part by our Favorite, Chef David Kratky. We could not have asked for a better caterer. If you are ever in the Park City, Utah, I highly recommend Chef Dave and the Laughing Pear...
The first responsibility of any great experience is to keep you in the bubble, the soft-serve cocoon of illusion where you forget the world exists for anything but your pleasure. As Chef Dave and his superior team accomplished every detail with such grace. We we're so impressed with our 10 course meal. We felt as though we were in another atmosphere.
I have always had challenges with past Food and Beverage Catering/Private Events Functions. Chef Dave changed all that and from know on when ever we come and stay in our Home in Park City, Chef Dave is our CHEF!!! I am not one to recommend anyone. But I MUST say that I highly Recommend CHEF DAVE and The Laughing Pear Group!!!!
Thanks again for the great week of meals. You definitely impressed everyone. I will refer you to anyone I know who needs a chef for any activity!
Hello Chef Dave :

We just got home from your beautiful Park City! We are all still talking about and reliving the phenomenal dinner you prepared for us! Without exception, every course was as promised: a unique and delicious experience! The food was exceptional, the presentation was beautiful, the service was impeccable and your attention to detail was beyond incredible! The time you spent preparing the dinner and cleaning up the kitchen after the meal was beyond expectation! The kitchen was spotless - if we didn't know better- we would never have known you had been there! Our only regret is that we didn't schedule more dinners with you !! You truly created an evening to remember! With heartfelt thanks and deep appreciation,
Cliff, Linda, Joe & Leslie Kemp and Brian and Lindsey B.
