Less Risk. More Know-how.

Published Date: June 27, 2023

Knowing your numbers just got heaps easier. 

The hard facts. 

Unfortunately, many cafe entrepreneurs are so eager to open their doors that they skip a lot of essential learning, and far too many close their doors prematurely. Leases are now changing hands in as little as 11 months, and as few as 30% of cafes succeed in their first year.

In most cases, failure has little to do with passion and drive but lots to do with lack of knowledge about the numbers and other aspects of the business. 

Business modelling and increasing your financial and operational understanding gives you the best chance of success in the hospitality and cafe industry. Not only will it help reduce financial risk, but it will also increase your business acumen and confidence.

Why you should know your numbers.

By understanding and taking control of the numbers, you’ll be able to make informed decisions backed by facts and figures rather than guesswork and estimations. You’ll have peace of mind knowing you have anticipated possible stumbling blocks and have enough insight and knowledge to overcome common challenges. Best of all, you’ll save yourself a lot of heartache, time and money. 

Knowing your numbers allows you to:

  • Evaluate profitability
  • Determine feasibility 
  • Make revenue projections
  • Secure adequate funding
  • Estimate costs
  • Reduce financial risks
  • Identify potential bottlenecks
  • Effectively allocate resources. 
  • Devise a solid road map to success.

HospoSure – the easiest and most accurate way to project the numbers.

It’s kind of all in the name, but Hosposure is an easy-to-use cloud-based programme that provides crucial training to cafe entrepreneurs planning to open and those already open for business. With HospoSure, spreadsheets, guesswork, and relying on gut instinct are a thing of the past. It allows you to plan, organise and manage your cafe like a pro. The average user spends three hours completing the program before moving on to refine their business model. Nice!
