BUSINESS PLANS FOR RESTAURANTS

Are you thinking of opening your own restaurant? Or maybe you already have and now you want to grow the business? In either case you will need funding. Depending on the size of your operations, this could come from a variety of sources, including banks, microfinance, investors and government grants.

Regardless of the finance source, the first thing any lender or investor will request is almost always your business plan and financial forecasts. They need this to give them a detailed overview of who you are, what you do, what markets you serve and how you are going to compete.


Before lending, the lender needs to assess the associated risks, and therefore they need to determine your restaurant's ability to repay them month by month. Equally, an investor will need to see that they can make back their investment. Your plan will need to include sales projections, trading accounts, cash flow forecasts and balance sheet projections.


It is imperative that you are prepared, with a detailed and professional business plan to hand. You may only get one chance to impress, and this is where we can help. We prepare neat, professional and concisely written business plans alongside meticulously prepared financial forecasts. Our goal is to help our customers put their best foot forward and give them the best possible chance of securing finance.

We have worked with a wide range of businesses within the wider restaurant industry, including high-end eateries, fast food franchises, cafes, ethnic takeaways and ice cream parlours.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Jonathan Flynn
(Restaurateur)
Samsara
Athy, Kildare
Restaurant Industry

The business plan the guys prepared was so important to me in terms of being able to access finance to start my own first restaurant. I'm a chef. I know food. I know restaurants and I know how to make them profitable. What I needed was someone that could document all this for me and help me get through the bureaucracy associated with getting a bank loan. The process was easy and the price was very affordable.

Number one, I’m Polish, so I didn’t have the confidence to prepare my own English plan. Number two, I’m not an accountant, so I couldn’t prepare cash flow forecasts. I know my own business though, and I’m so happy I found this business to help me with the technical side of raising finance.

John Lavelle

Retail Sector

I needed to raise a seven-figure sum to purchase commercial properties. I required a detailed business plan and forecasts. Mark was extremely valuable in his ability to understand my business and translate this into a plan. A pleasure to work with and I strongly recommend them.
