Take Five Sports Bar and Grill


Marketing & Sales

Marketing Plan

A combination of local media and event marketing will be utilized at each location. Radio is most effective, followed by local print media. As soon as a concentration of stores is established in a market, then broader media will be employed.

The strategy of live broadcasting and pro sports tie-ins has been most effective in generating free publicity for the flagship location which has been more effective than any advertising that could have been purchased.

Sales Plan

The sales strategy is to build and open new locations on schedule in order to increase revenue. Each individual location will continue to build its local customer base over the first three years of operation. The goal is $3 to $5 million in annual sales per unit. A unit will be considered mature once it has passed the $3.5 million mark in annual sales.
