A Sample Fruit Salad Bar Business Plan Template

1. Industry Overview

A fruit salad bar is a buffet-style table or counter at a restaurant or food market on which assorted fruit salad components are provided for customers to assemble their own salad plates.

A good number of fruit salad bars provide assorted fruits, lettuce, chopped tomatoes, assorted raw, sliced vegetables (such as cucumbers, carrots, celery, olives and green or red bell peppers), dried bread croutons, bacon bits, shredded cheese, and various types of salad dressing.

A close watch of happenings in this industry shows that the fruit salad bar industry has been sustained by increased consumer spending which was driven by higher disposable income and greater confidence in the economic outlook. Demand for fruit salad has increased at a faster rate than most segments of the foodservice sector, as consumers increasingly seek convenience at an affordable price.

Major operators are expected to expand their menus in the nearest future to increase sales and profit margins. This expansion includes more offerings of nontraditional, high-margin menu items such as boiled eggs, cottage cheese, cold pasta salads, tortilla chips, bread rolls, soup, fresh cut fruit slices, breakfast items and wraps.

The fruit salad bar industry relies heavily on labor because of the need for personal, face-to-face service and labor input in all areas of operation, including order taking, serving, fruit salad and beverage preparation, acceptance of deliveries, cleaning and management.

The report further stated that the industry’s overall spend on labor is relatively low as most positions within salad bar require little training or skills and can be undertaken by students or other low-skilled workers.

The Fruit Salad Bar industry is a thriving sector of the economy of Canada, the united states of America and in most countries in Europe and Asia. In the United States of America, the industry generates  over $2 billion annually from more than 76,960 registered fruit salad bars (restaurant serving fruit salad inclusive) scattered all around the United States of America.

The industry is responsible for the employment of over 717,961 people. Experts project the industry to grow at a 3.7 percent annual rate between 2011 and 2016. The Freund’s Sky Club Supper Club in Plover, Wisconsin and Hawaiian restaurant Chuck’s Steak House are the leaders in the fruit salad industry.

The Fruit Salad Bar industry has minimal barriers to entry, with low startup capital and no specific licensing requirements. On the other hand, the high level of competition and market saturation in a declining industry can prove challenging to aspiring entrepreneurs who want to start their own fruit salad bar. Most players in the fruit salad bar line of business are small to medium size establishments that cater to the local community.

Over and above, the fruit salad bar industry is a profitable industry and it is open for any aspiring entrepreneur to come in and establish his or her business; you can choose to start on a small scale in a street corner like the average mom and pop business or you can choose to start on a large scale with several outlets in key cities all across the United States.
