Two out of every 15 Business Plans we write are in the hospitality sector. Whether you are looking to start a new coffee shop business or expand a high-end restaurant chain, we can help with the creation of a new business plan. We’ve helped start-ups and established businesses, from food stalls and food trucks, cafes, bistros and restaurants in the writing of their Business Plans.

Did you know there are hundreds of cafés and restaurants starting up every year in Australia? Many of these will flourish, but some will fail. A good Business Plan doesn’t just get you the bank loan, or the lease. It also makes sure that you’re one of the ones that flourish.

The most important thing about a café or restaurant Business Plan is helping you with the location – market analysis and research, micro pinpointing the best street, or the best unit in the mall based on data, recommending menu developing and management, identifying and listing compliance and licensing regulations in your local Council or State, advising how best to manage the fit-out to make sure you optimise your tax position.

All of these and more are in our Café and Restaurant Business Plans.

One more thing

If you are wondering how to open a restaurant or a café…a business plan is a great, and quick way to start.

Thinking of spending money on equipment or a fitout? Our Accountancy specialist will help you with advice to ensure you get as much tax back as possible in your first year of trading.
