Planning and Modelling.

Published Date: July 26, 2023

What is cafe planning and modelling anyway?

Planning and modelling is a way to estimate financial operations such as startup costs, operating expenses, revenue projections, and potential profitability.

Why bother?

Planning and modelling will help evaluate the feasibility of your business and reduce potential risks. It provides a methodical approach to managing and optimising your cafe’s operations and assists you in anticipating challenges, making sound decisions, and capitalising on opportunities for growth and profitability. By carefully planning and analysing your options, you can lay a solid foundation for success and adapt to the changing dynamics of your cafe business.

Hosposure – the most accurate and easy way to plan and model.

The more accurate your planning and modelling, the better you can make good decisions. Every smart decision you make increases your chance of success.

We don’t want to peddle fear, but the truth is that up to 70% of startup cafes fail within the first year. While their failure can be attributed to a mix of factors, the most substantial impact often arises from a lack of familiarity with the numbers or the opportunity to work through more practical financial scenarios before opening.

In the past, getting this done wasn’t a walk in the park. Any attempt turned into a hodgepodge of guesses, painstaking market research, and countless hours crunching numbers in Excel sheets. But now, Clever Cafe has brought something pretty unique to the table in the form of HospoSure.

Hosposure is a simple, accurate and affordable way to hone your cafe business planning, modelling, and costing skills.

It simplifies a complex process into manageable stages, eliminating the need for guesswork in calculations. This makes it much simpler and more enjoyable to develop a comprehensive understanding and perspective of your potential future startup cafe operation. Alternatively, if you’re already operational, it provides a deeper insight into your existing setup and highlights where mistakes are being made.

By making use of the cafe-specific templates, online guides and coaching notes, you could be well on your way to creating your fundamental cafe business plan in as little as three hours, then go on to refine it at your own pace. Clever Cafe Co. have dual level access, allowing us to shadow you while you learn the ropes.
