Feasibility Studies

We evaluate the probability of success and risks associated with your restaurant project.

A Restaurant Feasibility Study is an invaluable tool in the restaurant industry. Our food industry consultants will travel to your location and compare your concept’s unique features with your specific site attributes and then present you with a financial forecast of your business. During the feasibility studies we will:

  • Conduct site visit to inspect nuances of your location, the local community, and competitive set
  • Establish the primary, secondary and tertiary trade areas
  • Analyze the dominant demographic and lifestyle groups in your trade area
  • Determine the target guest profile and depth of guest profile within the primary trade area
  • Determine the size of the targeted groups
  • The restaurant feasibility study will also review the competitive set of restaurants
  • Determine over-served and under-served concepts and categories to identify the holes in the market
  • Establish other popular restaurant concepts in the market for comparison, opportunity, and missing concepts
  • Evaluate sales performance of local restaurants vs. national averages
  • Review and identify all possible traffic and location barriers for the current site
  • Present estimated annualized sales projections for the new restaurant concept based upon our findings

A Business Plan is a formal presentation of the business goals, the reasons why we believed they are attainable, and the plan for reaching profit goals and creation of wealth. Through our experience, our food industry consultants find a well-organized business plan, paired with an in-depth restaurant feasibility study can greatly improve your restaurant’s ability to consistently establish and meet objectives in a way that best serves the company’s owners, employees and investors.
