We are food service and restaurant management consultants guiding New Hampshire entrepreneurs in all aspects of starting a restaurant.

About Us

Ed Aloise is the owner of Republic Restaurant Consulting. With over 40 years of multi unit management experience in the restaurant industry, Ed has owned and operated 4 highly successful restaurant concepts. 

Ed and his wife Claudia opened the first certified farm-to-table restaurant establishment in the State of New Hampshire in 2010—Republic Cafe in Manchester. In 2012, they were James Beard National Semi Finalist for Best Restaurateurs. They also boasted many local awards as well, including Best Restaurant, Best of the Best Chef, Best Cocktail, and Best Vegetarian Food from Hippo Press. In 2014, they opened sister restaurant Campo Enoteca. Now, Ed is focusing on helping other restaurateurs be just as successful. 

A New Era for Restaurants

Republic Restaurant Consulting recognizes that restaurant management has entered a new paradigm, but with change comes opportunity. In this new era, restaurant start ups need an expert food service consultant who can guide them in negotiating new landscapes and having their concept actualized.

Working with restaurants in New Hampshire and throughout New England, we help entrepreneurs answer questions such as: Should I go into the restaurant business? How do I start a restaurant? Where’s the best location for a restaurant? Where does my restaurant concept best fit in this new hospitality landscape?
