Introduction

The Top Side Service Restaurant will be a charming commercial table service restaurant located in Minnesota. The restaurant will be open for dinner and lunch. It will specialize in serving food, wine, liquor, and beer. It will be located along Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis, Minnesota. This is one of the busiest streets in the state, and therefore, the restaurant is guaranteed to make sales throughout the year. Our vision is to be more than just a great service restaurant. We plan to ensure that the restaurant offers the best meals and luxury services to surpass the standard cost in Minnesota. This will give us a competitive edge as the customers will be paying less for the quality services and meals they will be getting. Since we are competing against other well-established hotels and restaurants in the town, the only way we will differentiate ourselves is by offering the best services to our customers so that we get rid of any substitutes and consequently all the competition. Our exposure will be expanded through the internet so that other people in Minnesota that will not have discovered this new restaurant in Minneapolis will get to know about it and be turned into potential customers whenever they are in the town. This will also enable us to make profits that are above average while at the same time maintaining an above-average occupancy rate.

Business Plan for the Top Side Service Restaurant

The Mission and Vision Statement

The Mission of Top Side Service Restaurant ensures that our customers have the most satisfactory experience in town. The business exists to attract and maintain customers because they are the measure of our success. When this mission is adhered to, all the other issues concerning the industry quickly fall into place. The services of the restaurant will easily exceed the customer’s expectations. The vision we have for this hotel is to be a restaurant of choice in Minneapolis. The hotel should get to a point whereby anyone in town has an idea of its existence. We want to be a brand that will not be easily forgotten in years to come.

The Objectives

The objectives of Top Side Service Restaurant for the first year it will be in operation are as follows:

  • To create a culture whose main aim is always to exceed the expectations of the customers?
  • To ensure customer service is at its peak and that sales are being made throughout the year.
  • To increase our number of customers by at least 10% monthly.
  • To be a sustainable business that can easily survive without relying on the cash flows.
  • The Market

There are so many participants within the hospitality industry. Topside service restaurants will be competing with other restaurants in the industry. We will first have to identify our direct competitors to counter their moves in all aspects because not all the participants in the market will directly compete with us. This will be done by ensuring that our facilities are made more excellent and better quality for our size than all the others in the industry.

The Top Side Service Restaurant is targeting several groups of potential customers. The first is the people that use the busy street it is going to be located on. These will include travelers traveling through the town and the people who work in the city, including those whose offices are located around the area. Secondly, it will target clients that need a comfortable setting during weekends to relax and unwind. These include those that would like to enjoy the services offered by executive chefs and those who love a weekend getaway. As much as these are the primary customer groups that we expect to target, we also anticipate getting customers that fall outside this group. In addition to this, we plan to subscribe to web services that will give us an international presence to be exposed to potential customers. Our website setup will also be of help in growing our global clientele base. We also plan to be a customer-centered organization to enable us to retain our customers. The excellent service culture will be rooted in the structure of the organization at all levels. With these in place, we are sure to achieve our business goals and objectives, increase both the long-term and short-term profitability of the firm, and our relationships with our partners, employees, and our partners.

Competitive Edge

The Top Side Service Restaurant will establish competitive edges that are distinct so that our services are easily differentiated from those of the competition. First, we will focus our energy on ensuring that we are attentive to all the details to promote customer satisfaction. This will align with our mission statement to ensure that our customers have the most satisfactory experience at Top Side Service Restaurant. Another competitive edge that we seek to pursue is unique facilities. We want to create a unique face of our hotel that will be enhanced by the fantastic meals and services offered by the well-trained and experienced staff we plan to hire.

Theme and Décor

Our restaurant facility has to be decorated in an elegant and exquisite façade to bring about a conspicuous tower along the street. It will give our customers a conducive spot to break from their busy schedules and have a drink or a meal in total comfort and luxury. We also have plans of installing a free Wi-Fi that the customers can use while they are on the business premises. We do not doubt that the restaurant will provide our customers with a comfortable and warm environment where they will feel at home. We aim to give them an experience that will be unforgettable to turn them into repeat customers.

Number of Seats and Hours of Operation

For a start, the seats available in the restaurant will be three hundred so that we can handle a large capacity at a time. The management will plan on extension based on the performance of the restaurant within the first year. It will always be open throughout the year except for the public holidays. This will enable us to provide our services to our loyal customers when they need them throughout the year to enhance satisfaction and loyalty. The service times are planned to be twenty-four hours a day. We will achieve this by hiring adequate staff who will take turns both during the day and night times. This is so that we target those who only take food during the day and take liquor at night. With these measures in place, we expect to make a minimum of $1,000,000 per annum and a maximum of $2,500,000 in sales revenues.

Financial Considerations and Sales Projection

The initial start-up capital that is estimated is broken down as follows:

Item Estimated Cost ($)
Legal expenses 10,000.
Marketing expenses 2,000
Insurance 20,000
Accounting software, CRM software and Payroll Software 15,000

 

Stationery 1,000
Operational cost for the first 2 months 60,000
Start-up inventory 35,000
Hardware for Storage 3,720
Serving area equipment 5,500
Store equipment 14,000
Furniture 3,600
Website launch 600
Miscellaneous 10,000
Total 180,420

An estimate of $180,420 is therefore required to successfully start the restaurant.

The net profit expected within the first three years is also illustrated in the graph below. The sales are expected to grow steadily after the business is well established in Minneapolis. This will also result in an increase in the sales revenues due to the nature of the business. Also, since we plan to be open throughout the year, we expect that there will be very minimal variation in the sales revenues between seasons.

Sale Margin Profit

The Menus

The menus for this restaurant will be designed in a manner that is short and precise so that the customers use the shortest time to find what they are looking for or what they would like to have. It will also ensure that the printing costs are cut down. In addition, the restaurant will only prepare simple meals during the first 6 months of operation. This is to cut on costs and also to monitor the tastes and preferences of our clients.
