You might have the best dishes in town, but are you doing what it takes to get new customers in your door?

The Behind the Line Consulting group works on behalf of local restaurants that we know add flavor to the Portland scene. It makes us sad to see how so many deserving restaurants get overlooked because of the lack of a grandiose PR budget. We are locals ourselves, and that's why we've put together these offerings to drive customers to your door and get you some recognition.

What we can offer and how we can help.
