Good q, who does do strategy work for food retail?

I know we did some engagements a while back with RBI.

I’m pretty sure BCG works with McDonalds in Chicago.

McDonalds is littered with BCG and McK alums, including Lucy Brady, the GOAT

I knew some folks in food retail (three fast food chains). Not sure how it compares or the presence in other firms sorry

I do a lot of work in the space - if you drop me a DM I'm happy to share a few thoughts

Just to clarify, by food retailer I mean groceries, not fast food chains.

Ah thanks for the clarification. We have a heavy presence with two - one is for their e-commerce site (figuring out algorithms) and another is for a major retailer’s supply chain. May be more but those are the two I can think of though I think all firms have some sort of presence as HOA1 also noted above

I'm a Deloitte Tech Strategy & Architecture Senior Consultant with a Haas MBA looking to transfer to MBB. I'm up for manager this year and appreciate that if you move over you are expected to reset to first year post-MBA but has anybody been able to negotiate maybe a 2nd year post-MBA or even a manager/PL/EM entry? What specific tech skills are MBB looking for that they would be willing to offer flexibility on starting level. Again this is for the consulting not expert tracks at MBB. Many thanks in advance!
