The Industry

Restaurant industry sales are expected to reach a record $632 billion and post positive growth in 2012 of a 3.5 percent increase over 2011, marking the second consecutive year that industry sales have topped $600 billion. In 2011 the National Restaurant Association reported record sales of $604 billion an increase of 3.6 percent over 2010, or 1.1 percent in inflation-adjusted terms. The Industry is tied directly to the health of the U.S. Economy and consumer disposable income. The CBO anticipates that the current recession, which started in December 2007, ended in the second quarter of 2009, making it the longest recession since World War II. Such growth compares to a 2.6% real rate of decline during 2009, the depths of the recession. The swing in performance from 2009 to 2010 was the widest since 1983, a period of 27 years. The increase in real GDP in 2010 primarily reflected positive contributions from private inventory investment, exports, personal consumption expenditures (PCE), nonresidential fixed investment, and federal government spending. Severe economic downturns often sow the seeds of robust recoveries. During a slump in economic activity, consumers defer purchases, especially for housing and durable goods, and businesses postpone capital spending and try to cut inventories. Once demand in the economy picks up, the disparity between the desired and actual stocks of capital assets and consumer durable goods widens quickly, and spending by consumers and businesses can accelerate rapidly. Although the CBO expects that the current recovery will be spurred by that dynamic, in all likelihood, the recovery will also be dampened by a number of factors. Those factors include slow wage and employment growth, high unemployment as well as a continued sluggish housing market. Current expectations by the CBO are for real GDP growth of 2.0% in 2012 and 1.1% in 2013.

The continued rebound in GDP will also affect real disposable income growth. Real DPI increased 1.8 percent in 2010, compared with an increase of 0.6 percent in 2009. In making these assumptions, it is important to keep the underlying economic projections in mind. CBO has forecast real GDP growth of 2.0 percent in 2012 and 1.1 percent in 2013. It then assumes an average growth rate of 4.1 percent for the years of 2014 to 2017. Inflation is expected to be modest, at 1.2 percent in 2012 and below 2 percent in all other years. The unemployment rate is assumed to be mostly unchanged from current levels. We do not reach “full employment” for several years, with the forecasted unemployment rate being 5.6 percent by 2017. With less uncertainty by businesses and investors as to tax policy this year and next and with rising expectations that split government in Washington will slow the explosion in government spending the economy looks poised for sustained growth as businesses and investors get back to the business of growing and expanding the bottom line. While the industry is expected to grow in 2012, the top challenges cited by restaurateurs are food costs, building and maintaining sales volume, and the economy. Giving consumers what they want will be crucial for restaurant operators in 2012. As the recession has caused 8 out of 10 consumers to cut back on spending to some degree, it is more important than ever for operators to nudge those guests into patronizing their restaurants. For operators just getting started this may be the best time within the business cycle to plan and open your new facility understanding that with interest rates still at all time low levels and marginal operators going out of business you will have accounted for the marginal efficiencies necessary to not only survive against the competition but to thrive as we cycle once again into economic expansion.

Starting a small business is always risky, and the chance of success is slim. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, over 50% of small businesses fail in the first year and 95% fail within the first five years. Whether you are starting a new restaurant are looking to raise additional capital to expand your currently profitable Restaurant, or looking to evaluate and value your Restaurant to sell, current statistics prove that you will do much better with a business plan than without. According to Dunn and Bradstreet the primary reasons for failure vary, but all of the reasons  come under the category of poor planning. You are a part of the second largest Industry in the United States representing 4% of the U.S. Gross National Product in the most competitive Industry in the world. Your management decisions will decide whether your Restaurant survives or thrives in the face of increased competition. The most important benefit of a business plan is that it sets the stage for the future of your Restaurant as you want it to be positioned in the marketplace. A business plan will make it easy for your banker to take action as he/she gains insight into the details of your restaurant and the goals that you have outlined. Potential investors can review your plan and decide whether or not to make an investment based upon the risk. You will benefit most as you study and gain detailed insight into your own operations. Updating and constantly reviewing your plan will give you more insight as both a manager and decision maker.

TIME IS MONEY...We have estimated that it takes an average of 100 hours to research, and write a comprehensive business plan within any Industry. Creating and compiling the five year financial plan and forecasts including 5 years of budgets, income statements, balance sheets, cash flow analysis, and key financial ratio analysis can take more than 20 hours of work by you or your accountant. Now consider sitting down in front of your computer to edit and fill in the details of an already written and organized sample restaurant business plan and outline. Whether you are starting a fine dining, full service or fast food restaurant, are looking for expansion capital to open your second restaurant, or want to sell your multi restaurant chain, you will be able to edit this plan into your own.

ALREADY RESEARCHED and WRITTEN...The Foodservice Industry Analysis included, was written based upon current sources including the National Restaurant Associations' Food Industry Analysis and covering the fast casual bar and grille segment specifically with an Outlook through 2010 with segment focus on Catering  Casual and Fine Dining. Now use your computer's word processor to turn this sample plan into your own. Enter your food and beverage revenue assumptions, your operating expense assumptions, and your cash flow assumptions into the QuickPlan
® five year forecasting template using your computer's spreadsheet program. You will immediately have five years projected month to month operating budgets, income statements, balance sheets, cash flow analysis and key financial ratios. Once you have finished editing, print your plan and simply insert it into the three ring binder included, indexing it according to the pre-labeled inserts.

QuickPlan® Catering  Business Plan software includes a complete 10 page Employee Manual covering descriptions, wage policy, performance appraisals, etc., a 25 page Operations Manual including job descriptions, and now includes a 20 page Bar Tender/ Bar-back operations manual and par daily liquor inventory control if you are going to serve liquor.
