There is a better way. If you would like to develop a nice plan like this for yourself and give yourself a good shot at making your life better, then find a planning software that does it all for you. This is a Small Business Planning Tool made just for small business owners. All you do is enter your business numbers along with the few other things and everything else is done for you automatically including the 7 ways to make it happen. If you wanted to see what 3Ǒ transactions would do to your profit, the second you enter 3Ǒ, it shows you immediately what your new profit would be and whether it would meet your plan or not. I doubt you have ever seen anything like it before.
Prove the Viability of Your Idea to Others _ A business plan is a great way to prove to yourself that your ideas are viable and that the catering company that you are proposing can thrive and make a profit. You will also need a plan in order to prove to other people that the business model that you have in mind is financially sound. Think of your business plan as being like a resume that you can hand out to people who need information about your business. You can always leave out sections that are not relevant to the reader in question.
There are many reasons for utilizing such a document. Is the final document going to be about implementing a decision already having been reached or is it about analysis and recommendations for a newly proposed activity. As noted above, a finished document may be for internal or external purposes. Externally they are often used to solicit funding for a start_up or joint venture. Whatever the purpose, do not confuse effort with say, a marketing or a production plan.
As an example, let's say your current average number of transactions per month per customer is 3ǌ. Which says on average each customer does business with you 3 times each month. You could calculate how much more profit you would get if you could increase it to 3Ǒ. And I can tell you that would probably be enough to meet your plan. And if that did generate enough profit, all you would have to do is maintain everything else; sales, expenses, labor, average dollar sale, etc, and then just figure out how you could increase your transactions from 3ǌ to 3Ǒ. Maybe it could be with some type of promotion that would get customers to come in more often.
