Sports Bar Business Plan

Management Summary

At the present time Joseph Smith runs all operations for Take Five Sports Bar and Grill. Other key personnel are the management at each location. Candidates have already been identified for the first additional Anytown area location. There is not expected to be any shortage of qualified and available staff and management from local labor pools in each market area.

5.1 Organizational Structure

Future organizational structure will include a director of store operations when store locations exceed five and/or the Florida store opens. This will provide a supervisory level between the executive level and the store management level. A full time accountant has already been added. Also, a sales/marketing director has been added to oversee the expansion effort both to support the growth of existing business and to execute the franchise expansion strategy. Their salaries are included in the projections.

Operations of individual stores will be the responsibility of the general manager.
