About

We are your trusted strategist in the planning, programming, and design of nourishing places.

3.14DC was launched to fill a void in the upfront planning of spaces connecting food systems to food spaces.  Creating a dedicated operations and customer journey map outlining all the touchpoints, as well as, illustrating the entire experience is “Dynamic Planning”.  We connect farming sources,  menu trends, facilities operations, thru the kitchen and to the customer’s plate.   From market halls and markets to ghost kitchens and restaurants to catering and meeting spaces, we manage the upfront discovery, strategy, and execution to set a solid foundation for success. 3.14DC works with your team to create solid road map.
