    Significance

    • A restaurant business plan is essential when starting a new restaurant business. The restaurant business plan sets up the plan for how to organize, finance and run the business. A new restaurant owner should spend a considerable amount of time when preparing the restaurant business plan. A restaurant business plan must be created objectively and anticipate any challenges the business might face. A well-written restaurant business plan can help a potential restaurant owner determine if it is actually profitable to venture into the restaurant business.

    Features

    • A restaurant business plan should address all issues of the business. The plan should start with determining where the funding will come from for the business. It should also anticipate how long it will take before the business will start to become profitable. Other features of a restaurant business plan should include criteria for site selection, an analysis of the staff that will be needed to run the



    Benefits

    • The benefits of creating a restaurant business plan are significant. The restaurant business plan can help a new restaurant owner anticipate challenges. By creating a time line for when the business will become profitable, it allows the new restaurant owner an opportunity to gauge her financial situation realistically and decide if outside financing options need to be considered.

    Considerations

    • Even the best written restaurant business plan will most likely be unable to cover many situations new restaurant owners face once they start their restaurant business. A restaurant owner should be flexible and willing to adjust his business strategy away from their original restaurant business plan. Some examples of when this is important is when unforeseen competition enters the market, unexpected expenses arise or a financing opportunities change based on the current economic situation.

    Warning

    • A poorly written restaurant business plan will make it very hard for the business to succeed. Just writing a restaurant business plan is not enough by itself. Months should be spent creating the restaurant business plan. Research challenges that other restaurants in your market have faced and include how you can avoid them or handle them when they occur in your business plan. When creating a restaurant business plan, prepare for many hardships that way you will not be caught by surprise when they occur. If by some chance those hardships do not occur, it is easier to adjust a restaurant business plan for that than it is for dealing with situations you did not anticipate and plan for.

    Of course, you should also work on the financial aspect of the business. You must determine how you are going to fund the business. You could talk to investors, get a loan from the bank or come up with business partners to work in this business.
