Take Five Sports Bar and Grill has established a successful presence in the food and beverage service industry. The flagship location in suburban Anytown (Medlock Bridge) will gross in excess of $2 million in sales in its first year of operation. First year operations will produce a net profit of $445,000. This will be generated from an investment of $625,000 in initial capital. Since 10 months of operations have already been completed the confidence level for final first year numbers is extremely high. The first 10 months of start-up costs, sales revenues, and operating expenses are actual.
Expansion plans are already underway. Owner funding and internally generated cash flow will enable additional stores to open. Sales projections for the next four years are based upon current planned store openings. Site surveys have been completed and prime locations have been targeted for store expansion.
The sales figures and projections presented here are based upon an additional four store locations at the most premium sites available in the Anytown Metro market area as well as a prime resort location in Destin, Florida.
Management has recognized the rapid growth potential made possible by the quick success and fast return-on-investment from the first location. Payback of total invested capital on the first location will be realized in less than 18 months of operation. Cash flow becomes positive from operations immediately and profits are substantial in the first year.
