Need a Business Plan Writer for Your Restaurant? We Can Help.
As a restaurateur, you know the secret to getting your restaurant off the ground is successful funding.
This is true even if you are already an established restaurant and want to open a second or third location - investors almost always require a business plan before they write a cheque.
This is our expertise.

We Understand Business Plans Can Be Daunting
We know that business plans can be daunting. It can be difficult to write about your own business objectively, while putting together analysis and projections at professional-grade quality.
Whether you’ve never written a business plan before or are simply too busy to write one, we can help you by preparing a sharp, professional-grade restaurant business plan that quickly shows the investment potential of your business.
Over the past 8 years I’ve worked with a wide range of Canadian restaurant owners to help them successfully launch or expand a new location.
Separate Yourself From the “Free Business Plan Template” Applicants
Each month banks receive business plans – most of which are poorly written by business owners who don’t have much expertise in writing business plans. The result? The bank is forced to reject them. And unfortunately you don’t get many chances here. Therefore, trying to save money at business plan stage can be your most expense mistake.
Save time and get it done right with a professional who writes business plans for a living, to ensure you maximize your chances of funding success.
“How Much Money Do I Need?”
Each restaurant is unique and will require different capital amounts depending on a variety of factors like size and location, where the average restaurant will require between $100,000 for a smaller kiosk location to $600,000 for a full restaurant.
Typical start-up costs include: Renovations/construction, full kitchen capital equipment, licensing, working capital (wages, overhead costs for e.g. 4 months), signage and marketing.
What Your Restaurant Business Plan Should Include
To successfully get funding your business plan should answer the following questions:
- What is your restaurant concept?
- How do you stand out from competitors?
- How much your restaurant will require for start-up
- Where that money will go with a detailed breakdown of the investment.
- Who is your target market? Who are your different customer segments? Is the area growing in population? If so, by how much?
- Where is your business located? Why did you choose this location?
- What are your sales projections and margins for the next 3 years? How did you come up with these numbers?
- What is your marketing plan? What marketing channels will you utilize?
But most importantly, your restaurant business plan should show the reader that your restaurant is a solid business investment. A professional restaurant business plan writer can help you.
