Restaurant Feasibility Studies and Restaurant Business Plans

If you need a restaurant feasibility study or restaurant business plan, we've got you covered for virtually any type or size of project you have in mind. 


We commonly write three types of documents including feasibility studies, business plans and if you need SBA funding, we're the only company that writes an SBA compliant, Feasibility Study-Business Plan "combo" document (because the SBA requires a feasibility study AND a business plan). 


Banks and investors have confidence in our business plans because of the comprehensive financial projections and the top quality narrative. You will too because it will accurately portray what you envision and getting funded is much more likely. If you're in the hunt for money, a great location or both, we will create a document you'll be proud to present to any lender, landlord or other stakeholder. 


Below is an overview of all three documents:


  • RESTAURANT FEASIBILITY STUDY.   All restaurant operators agree that the location of their business is the #1 most important thing. You’ve heard the saying; location, location, location, and it’s true. The first step in validating your possible location is to complete a restaurant feasibility study. What will your new business require relative to: general location, square footage, will it be a ground-up or re-branding of an existing space – commonly referred to as a “second generation” space, and many other considerations as well. When we craft restaurant feasibility studies, we commonly include the following items at a minimum:

  1. Concept discussion and overview. 
  2. Profile of the trade area. Who lives nearby? What competitors and other factors will impact your business? We'll find out and detail this information for you.
  3. Issues related to traffic including site access, traffic patterns, intersections and other site concerns.
  4. Photographs of the trade area.
  5. What is market rent running? What other leasing or space concerns exist? We'll find out.
  6. Employment issues that will impact your business. Employment is tight nationwide, and you'll need to know if you'll have staff available!
  7. Signage, marketing and recommendations.
  8. Creation of high-level financial projections to help you make good decisions.
  9. SWOT Analysis - narrative regarding strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats that may impact your new business.
  10. Our final recommendations and opinion.


  • RESTAURANT BUSINESS PLAN.   For your new business, can you afford to have anything less than a stellar business plan? Our process of crafting business plans has been proven over the years to yield superior funding and project results for our clients. The contents of your restaurant business plan will include, at a minimum:

  1. Executive Summary.
  2. Background of the project.
  3. Highly detailed business overview.
  4. Ownership and Management bios.
  5. Restaurant systems and operations plan.
  6. High-level menu / illustrations.
  7. Project assumptions.
  8. Full set of financial projections including year one (by month) to year five, year one P&L’s by month, break even, and much more. Our restaurant business plans contain no less than 10 major sections and will provide all of the information you (and your investors) will need to make a “go or no-go” decision. Your plan will also provide prospective landlords with the information they need in order to favorably consider you as a tenant.


  • FEASIBILITY STUDY/RESTAURANT BUSINESS PLAN. If you're in the market for SBA-backed funding, a feasibility study is required (per the SBA checklist). Sure, you can engage us for both a feasibility study and a restaurant business plan, but why do that when a "combo plan" will be faster and less expensive in the long run? We've been crafting these combo plans for years now with outstanding funding results and this might be the best route for your project as well. Give us a call at 720-363-0164 to discuss what you've got in mind.
