Analyzing the Capital and Cash Needed
Before any new venturesis to begin finding investors or lenders to help them get the company started, a proper analysis of how much capital and cash with a list of the expenses is needed in order to fully explain to the investors/lenders what the money is needed for, what it will be used on specifically and when they should expect to see some returns on their investments/loans. As with any new venture, I will have to do the same in order to know exactly how much money I would need to get by business started. Below is a list of expenses with prices that I am expecting to need in order to have my company fully open and ready for business.
List of Expenses:
· Building construction (including heat and air conditioning and ventilation installation) = $200,000 – $250,000
· Utilities/month = $2,000 – $2,500 = $24,000 – $30,000/year
· Machinery/Equipment = $150,000 – $200,000
· Furniture (Tables, chairs, reception, etc) = $20,000
· Tableware (silverware, dishes, etc) = $10,000
· Licenses and permits = $7,000
· Insurance = $8,000
· Point-of-sales system (including cash registers, computers, etc) = $8,000
· Food and drinks delivery = $15,000
· Marketing (including menus, flyers, advertising, business cards, etc) = $3,000
· Staff (uniforms, wages, training, etc) = $30,000 – Initial starting costs
Total approximate startup cost range = $475,000 – $550,000
This is the average price that most other restaurants that have built their own building have paid in the past, this means that all my pricing and the list of expenses I made seems to be on the right track according to other restaurant owners. Also another thing to consider, all the prices that were input in the list above are all high-end approximations which means there is room for changes or unexpected expenses without having to worry about getting more money.
