Coffee Shop Business Plan – Financial Projection Sample
- Sources of Income
Our sources of income for Coffee4All are limited to the sales of different types of coffees and pastries. But in the future, we may likely go into the sale of franchise which is going to be an additional source of income for the company.
- Sales Forecast
It is important to state that our sale forecast is based on the data gathered during our feasibility studies and also some of the assumptions readily available on the field.
Below is the sales projection based on the location (Los Angeles International Airport) of the coffee bar and the traffic that the location attracts every day of the week:
Coffee (cappuccino, espresso, iced coffee, decaffeinated coffee, alcoholic coffee (Irish Coffee and Brandy Coffee et al), filtered coffee, cold brew coffee, Turkish coffee, coffee with milk, coffee or espresso with whipped cream, and flavored coffee et al):
- 1,000 Cups of Coffee Per Day
Pastries (Sandwich, Bread, Meat Pie, Scotch egg, Pizza, Burger, and Fish Pie et al):
- 1,000 pieces per day
N.B: Please note that thousands of travelers transit through this airport every week, hence there is the likelihood of the coffee sale to increase especially when flights are delayed or cancelled and during winter periods. The idea is to attract as many people as possible to our coffee shop.
In view of this, our annual projected sales for Coffee4All® is put at about $500,000 annually which translates into $254.00 of sales per square foot. This is in line with the industry averages for this size of coffee shop in the United States of America. Over and above, as Coffee4All gets established, our net profitability will likely increases from 17.06% in the first financial year (FY) to 17.63% in the third financial year (FY).
