As a matter of fact, most new businesses budget for money to pay employees and run the business for as long as 6 months or so, because they know that they might likely not make the money they require to effectively run the business within such a time frame. This is because they conversant of the teething stage which nearly all businesses face upon inception.

As a result of our findings, we have adopted a strategy that will guarantee that we generate adequate income from different sources.

  • 180 dinners per day, 12 months per year
  • Typical dinners per year (in full year) is 70,000 (estimated figure)
  • $75 per person on the average

Sales of Drinks, Wine, Beverages and Water et al-:

  • On the average over 80% of people who purchase dinner or lunch would consume drinks
  • This equates to 120 drinks for lunch and 144 bottle of drinks / wine / beverage for dinner in a day

N.B-: The possibility of the figure to increase by 25 percent or more cannot be ruled out. Research shows that people who consume alcohol are generally not satisfied with just one bottle, especially when they have the financial resources to purchase a whole lot more.
