The trouble with sample café business plans is exactly as the name proposes. It is a sample plan. The information is based on a generic café, and therefore it neglects the fact that every cafes situation is different. Therefore, for the plan to become effective it must be tailored to the restaurant or cafes current situation. The fact is that a lot of the information contained in these plans is useless for everyday operation and growth of the restaurant.
Goals : Set out some growth targets and other goals over the short and medium terms. Goals for a catering service could be the number clients, the number of events, total revenue or average profit margins on events. Refer to your business plan regularly and push yourself to keep up with the goals that you set.
Organisation and Management Plan : The organisation and management plan is used to describe how the business is expected to run on a continuous basis. The organisation plan will help to highlight the responsibilities of the management team. The tasks should be assigned to each division within the company and clearly describe how the finances should be split amongst different operations.
These areas require that you present a strong case for your proposed financial expectations, grounded firmly in the supporting information of your plan, including marketing, market analysis, business operations, and so forth. Having confidence in your business and in yourself will assist you in demonstrating the potential for your company and in being able to deliver what your investor is looking for. Doing your due diligence and knowing the facts surrounding your business and your market will prove to be of great benefit when selling your business case, both in writing and verbally, to the lender you are seeking funding from.
