Restaurant Business Plan and Startup Products from FoodSoftware.com

12/1/2018 by FoodSoftware

Welcome Restaurant Software Shoppers!

FoodSoftware.com specializes in business plan and startup products for restaurants and offers a variety of restaurant business plan and new restaurant start products.

The purpose of this page is to generally describe the broad field of restaurant business plan products as well as to list the specific restaurant business plan products available at FoodSoftware.com. (See the bottom of this page for links to detailed product descriptions.)

Products in our restaurant business plan category are software and/or books which are specifically designed for restaurants and related hospitality and food retail operations. Most of the products in this group are for creating formal and comprehensive business plan presentations to investors or banks to raise money or for evaluating business ideas for your own purposes. Other products in this group are to support your evaluations (how much money do I need to start this new restaurant?) or educate you (what do I need to learn before I buy a restaurant?).

Though many of our products are restaurant industry standards, they are still very specialized and not found in any retail store.

General Types of Restaurant Business Plan and New Restaurant Startup Products

Restaurant business plan products vary in format, content, purpose, business specialization, comprehensiveness and product support:
  • Formats: Products are available as books only, books with CDs and files for download delivery only.
  • Overall Content: Most business plan products include business background information, general plan instructions, plan examples and customizable templates for presentation documents and financial spreadsheets.
  • File Content: CDs and downloads usually contain a variety of files: PDFs for documentation, Word documents (.doc, .txt or .rtf) for customizable documents and Excel spreadsheets for customizable financial calculations.
  • Purposes:
    • Raising Money: Most products in this group are for creating formal and comprehensive business plan presentations to investors or banks to raise money. In addition to doing financial projections, formal business plans also help you demonstrate your professional knowledge by including industry and demographic studies to support your forecasts and operations manuals to show your preparedness to operate a business.
    • Your Own Evaluation: If you are investing your own money, it is just as important to evaluate your business ideas or prospective business purchases for yourself as though you were trying to raise money from others. The most important features of these products for your purposes are spreadsheets for making five-year financial projections and determining startup requirements.
    • Your Education: Some of the products in this group are for learning what you need to know to buy, build and operate restaurants if you've never been in the business before.
  • Business Specialization: These products are tailored to narrow business types: i.e., in addition to "typical" restaurants, there are specialty plans for sub shops, coffee shops, drive-thrus, bars, etc.. (Be sure to check the list of specific products at the end of this section for the wide variety of business plan types.)
  • Comprehensiveness: Business plan products vary in completeness and quality. As you might expect, the less expensive products (under $100) are more basic. The better products are $100 to $200.
  • Product Support: The better products (such as the QuickPlan line) are backed by knowledgeable support staff- people you can get on the phone to ask for help, advice and custom work.
