Embrace new thinking


Actions taken today will lead to tomorrow’s opportunities, possibilities and achievements.

We focus on developing Mid-term Growth Plans for 3 to 7 years out.

Like a middle child, mid-term planning generally does not get the attention it deserves. Short-term planning is often an accounting extrapolation, and long-term plans are pipe dreams far out on the horizon.

C&G advisers
  • guide a mid-term plan for aggressive revenue growth
  • direct LEAN principles for operating income
  • teach strategic leverage of the enterprise’s assets

Our expertise includes

  • fostering a robust capital planning process measured in “economic profit”
  • furnishing strategic real estate advice and expertise
  • developing omnichannel visions
  • guiding innovative technology investments

Private Equity investing also typically uses 3- to 7-year planning horizons. C&G advisers have experience in M&A work and extensive experience in due diligence.

No organization is too big or too small.

We work with enterprises of all sizes, from small family-owned restaurant chains, to mid-cap public and private distribution and supply chain companies, to large corporate supermarkets.


C&G Guiding Principles
  • Put clients, guests and customers above all else.
  • Challenge every practice and methodology.
  • Embrace new thinking.
  • Make competition irrelevant.
  • Develop human talent to grow enterprise value.

“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must out run the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter if you are a lion or gazelle: when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.”
