Steak Restaurant Business Plan

Management Summary

We will open with a team of four manager/owners, one bookkeeper, and fifty-three staff members. Each member of the management team has specific industry experience that will apply to their assignment. Each Vice Managing Partner will also cross train for one year in preparation for their promotions to their own Fire Fountain Grille units. This is an extremely experienced and well balanced team. There are no gaps in its structure.

7.1 Personnel Plan

The personnel table (labor pro-forma) shows the number, and structure of the "back-of-the-house" (BOH),  "front-of-the-house" (FOH), and management staffs. June 2004 has a higher labor cost, as is usual in a restaurant start-up. Labor costs come down as the operation begins to flow more smoothly. The service staff is large, and is necessary to provide the level of service that the Fire Fountain Grille needs to set it apart from the competition.
