How to Write a Café Business Plan

By Lanee’ Blunt

A café is a business that can get big, depending on what you are planning on serving. Start with a business plan because it may help you ask for funding; persuade potential investors to support the business financially. Start the business proposal with a market study that profiles your customer base, current sales in the market area, and pricing features of competitors.

Write an executive summary which is a brief summary of what the café is and where it will be located. Tell the reader why your café is a great business for example, if it is going to serve all organic foods. What are the services that you are going to provide?

Write the management summary. Write your mission statement. Write about the management team. Who is going to be the general manager?  What experience and education does he or she have? Who is going to be the chef and the experience that he or she has?

The finance section of the business plan should include your cash flow statements, of each year you have been in business—up to three to five years, company income statements, balance sheets and other financial ratios, such as a break-even analysis. Or a cost estimate that explains the estimated cost of the building, equipment needed, cost of installation of equipment, vehicles needed for transportation. You may require help from your accountant or a good spreadsheet software program.

Eliminate all errors by proofreading the business plan. Rewrite sections that are too vague and don’t explain the full meaning of what you are planning.  Avoid typos that will make your business plan look unprofessional and amateurs.  If you don’t have the skills to write your business plan there are online resources that can assist in formulating a business plan or there is Business Plan software that you can purchase that will help you.
