Club + Resort Business and Club + Resort Chef publish the Top Ranked Culinary Experiences list annually. The list includes dozens of club and resort properties in the United States, listed in order and as judged independently by a panel of chefs from several of the industry’s most well-respected properties.
The rankings reflect the judges’ scoring of submitted entries that includes data on annual food-and-beverage revenue, membership size, weekly cover counts, banquet capacity, a la carte and banquet menus, food costs, certifications, front- and back-of-house photos and more. The judges score each entry independently, assigning points to the various aspects of the data and information submitted.
Top Ranked Culinary Experience highlights the various aspects of the club and resort industry that drive membership and retention while providing an industry benchmarking tool that supports capital expenditures to deliver exceptional member experiences and capture best practices from club to club.
Through the Top Ranked Culinary Experiences list, clubs can not only showcase their Top Ranked food and beverage programs but also collectively measure the data behind industry culinary programs, to help foster a baseline for a better understanding of how to improve and grow more valuable to members.
