Forecast

Key Assumptions

The most important indicators in our case are are daily seating "counts" and weekly sales numbers. We must also make sure that we are turning our inventory rapidly so as to avoid food spoilage.

We must target net profit/sales figures toward the 14% level with gross margins around  45%. Marketing costs should never exceed three percent of sales. We will use Social Media Facebook Twitter and Instagram to reach to the community and listen to our customers while keeping the costs down.
