Restaurant Financial & Business Plan consists of a financial model in excel and a business plan in PowerPoint for the opening of a new restaurant.
The model generates the three financial statements (profit & loss, balance sheet, and cash flow), various charts, breakeven analysis, and a series of margins, ratios, and feasibility metrics. The financing options for the project include equity funding from investors and an amortizing loan.
So, a quick overview of the model, in the contents tab you can see the structure of the model, and by clicking on any of the headlines to be redirected to the relevant worksheet.
On the guide tab, you can feed the general information for the model such as: model name, responsible, timeline of the model and date, and currency conventions.
Additionally, there is a description of the color-coding of the model in the same tab. Inputs are always depicted with a yellow fill and blue letters, call up (that is direct links from other cells) are filled in light blue with blue letters while calculations are depicted with white fill and black characters.
There is also a color coding for the various tabs of the model. Yellow tabs are mostly assumptions tabs, grey tabs are calculations tabs, blue tabs are outputs tabs (that is effectively results or graphs) and finally, light blue tabs are admin tabs (for example: the cover page, contents, and checks).
There are 4 tabs where the user input is needed: “Start Up Costs”, “Personnel Plan”, “Sales & Costs”, “Working Capital”. The user needs to fill the yellow cells in each of these tabs. In the Start Up Costs, the user fills the assets purchased for the investment, as well as the depreciation in years of each of these assets. Afterward, the user needs to set the percentage financed by debt, the interest rate of the loan, as well as the duration of the loan.
In the Personnel Plan, the user needs to set the human resources needed to operate the business. These are separated into direct labor costs and overheads. The user needs to set the persons needed and their annual cost.
In Sales & Costs, the user must forecast the customers per year and the average revenue per customer. Afterward, a series of costs need to be filled such as the cost of food sold, rent, utilities, insurance, etc…
Finally, in the working capital tab, the user sets the receivables and payables days, as well as the inventory days.
All the remaining tabs are automatically calculated from the assumptions that the user has set. The resulting tabs are the depreciation and funding tabs, the three financial statements such as the profit and loss, balance sheet, and cash flow. All the charts and tables that are needed for the presentation are in the “Highlight Charts”, “Market Charts”, “F Plan”, “Break Even” and “Ratios”.
Finally, the checks tab where the most critical checks are aggregated. Whenever you see an error message on any page, you should consult this page to see where the error is coming from.
Moving on to the Business Plan PowerPoint file now, which consists of 21 pages and can be used for a quick presentation of your plan. The PowerPoint file is editable and can be amended. The charts that are present in the PowerPoint file are coming from the excel file that accompanies the PowerPoint file.
The Business Plan is separated into 9 sections: Executive Summary, Mission, Objectives, and Keys to Success, Funding, Value Proposition, Market Analysis, Strategy, Sales Forecast and Milestones, Management and Key Personnel, Financial Plan and finally Appendices.
All appendices tables (major assumptions, personnel plan, and detailed financial plan) have been retrieved from the financial model and have been pasted as pictures into the presentation.
