bar business plan

Whether you’re looking to raise funding from private investors or to get a loan from a bank (like a SBA loan) for your bar, you will need to prepare a solid business plan.

In this article we go through, step-by-step, all the different sections you need in your bar business plan. Use this template to create a complete, clear and solid business plan that get you funded.

1. Executive Summary

The executive summary of a business plan gives a sneak peek of the information about your business plan to lenders and/or investors.

If the information you provide here is not concise, informative, and scannable, potential lenders and investors may lose interest.

Why do you need a business plan for a bar?

The purpose of a business plan is to secure funding through one of the following channels:

  • Obtain bank financing or secure a loan from other lenders (such as a SBA loan )
  • Obtain private investments from investment funds, angel investors, etc.
  • Obtain a public or private grant

How to write your bar business plan’s executive summary?

Provide a precise and high-level summary of every section that you have included in your bar business plan. The information and the data you include in this segment should grab the attention of potential investors and lenders immediately. Ensure that the executive summary doesn’t exceed 2 pages in total.

The executive summary usually consists of the five major sub-sections that include:

  • Business overview : introduce your bar and provide a brief of the products and services you will offer. For instance, it may be a sports bar, a social hub, a music venue, or something else. Also mention the number of customers your bar can host at once.
  • Market overview : the market overview section will contain an overview of the expected market size and growth of the bar industry in your area as well as your target audience and its demographics. Another important part of any market overview is a clear and thorough analysis of your competitors
  • People : introduce your bar’s management and employee structure. Provide a brief (no more than a couple of sentences each) of the knowledge and experience of the team. Also, speak about your hiring plans: who will you hire and who will report to whom?
  • Financial plan : how much profit and revenue do you expect in the next 5 years? When will you reach break-even point and start making profits? Include here your key financials such as revenue, gross profits, and net profit
  • Funding ask : what loan/investment/grant are you seeking? How much do you need? How long will this last?

2. Bar Business Overview

This is the section of your bar business plan where you properly introduce your bar and its business model.

Here is a sample list of questions that you must try to answer in this section:

  • What is the rationale behind the bar?
  • What’s the bar’s location and why did you select that location?
  • Why did you select the type of bar you want to open?
  • What will be the products and services you will offer?
  • What will be your pricing strategy and why?
  • Will your operating hours be the same as your competitors?
  • Who is your target audience?
  • How many customers can you serve at once (capacity)?
  • What will be the legal structure of your company?

a) History of the Project

Here you should explain the background of your project, more importantly:

  • The passion & experience of the business owner for the bar industry
  • The rationale behind the business: why did you decide to create a bar today?

Passion & Experience

You may or may not have prior experience. If you have experience, speak about it and how it will help you to run your business. For instance, you may have been a senior manager in a bar for say 5 years, and now you want to start your own bar and use your knowledge to run it more efficiently.

However, if you don’t already have experience, that’s fine. You must demonstrate your passion and some industry knowledge (you may have conducted thorough research).

Is there a certain problem (or perhaps, a set of problems) that your bar will try to solve when it comes into existence? For example, there may not be any sports bar in your area where sports enthusiasts can enjoy sports on a big screen while enjoying drinks and food.

But that’s not all! The market must be suitable for a business to exist and thrive. For instance, if the area has a high rate of hooliganism and vandalism, opening a bar in the area might not be a good idea. Similarly, if the population of the target market has a high percentage of under-aged people and non-drinkers, you may not receive enough customers to keep the bar profitable.

b) Business Model

This sub-section of the Business Overview will explain your business model. Describe the following points briefly:

  • Will you buy an existing bar and do some remodeling, or will you start a new bar and design it from scratch?
  • The type of bar you want to open and why

What are the different types of bars?

There are multiple types of bars. Some of them that you may consider include, but are not limited to:

  • Specialty Bar: They specialize in one or two things. For instance, it can be a Martini Bar or a Cigar Bar. If you decide to open a Martini Bar, expect to have more women customers since the drink is popular among women. Again, a Cigar Bar will attract people who want to enjoy a smoke while drinking
  • Sports Bar: This is a type of bar that will televise sporting events continuously on a big TV screen. Usually, these bars remain crowded, and the male species will usually flock to these bars. Things can get raunchy and drunk men can pick up fights.
  • College Bar: This type of bar attracts the college crowd – people who have just turned 21. With drinking becoming legal for them, you can expect people to have lots of fun and order a lot of booze. Sorority girls, frat boys, cheerleading squad, football team – you will find them all. But they aren’t among the most responsible drinkers. So, expect some mess
  • Concept/Cocktail Bar: These bars are specially for people with big spending capacity. Usually, the bars have something unique to offer and often attract tourists. For example, you may consider an open-air rooftop bar offering a sweeping view of the city. These bars are more about expensive thrills and new trends, and they often tend to be very extravagant
  • Irish Pub: They specialize in offering alcoholic drinks that come straight from Ireland. Usually, they have a great ambiance, and they are perfect for relaxation and de-stressing. They have that typical Irish feel complete with decorations and pleasant music

There are many more types of bars that you may consider. However, remember that the bar you are opening must have a high percentage of the target audience. For instance, if you are located in an area popular for expensive tourism, a Cocktail Bar Bar may be a better choice.

c) Products

Of course, the products you will offer in your bar will depend on the type of bar you are opening.

Here, you should provide an overview of the products you are selling, drinks and/or food. Whilst it’s always good to add details, keep the detailed menu for the appendix instead.

Instead, explain here what are the main products you will sell (if you’re specializing in specific drinks for example) which shall tie into how you differentiate yourself vs. competitors later (see Market Overview ).

d) Pricing Strategy

In this sub-section, you must explain the pricing strategy of your bar. If you have multiple competitors in the vicinity, you cannot have huge pricing variation, especially for the drinks. Pricing will, of course, depend on the type of bar you are opening. 

For instance, if you are going for a College Bar with a major focus on beers, you will most likely charge the standard beer rates. However, if you are offering additional entertainment services, you can charge for that, too.

Similarly, you cannot expect to charge super high like the concept bars if you are opening a Sports Bar. Yes, there can be significant price variations in the food that you are offering.

Create a pricing chart and ensure to provide an average price range for your products. You don’t need to provide exact pricing for each product. For example, if you are selling beer, you don’t need to list each beer brand and its price. You can just use a range instead (e.g. $6 to $9 for a pint).

Adding prices to your bar business plan is very important: it will allow investors to tie your pricing strategy with your financial projections later on (see Financial Plan ).

e) Legal Structure

Finally, your business overview section should specify what type of business structure you want. Is this a corporation or a partnership (LLC)? Who are the investors? How much equity percentage do they own? Is there a Board of Directors? If so, whom? Do they have experience in the industry?

3. Bar Market Overview

A complete understanding of the market where you want to operate is important for the success of your business.

For example, if you intend to open an Irish Pub in an area teeming with a college crowd, that will be a foolish choice. Similarly, if you want to open a Nostalgia Bar and try to attract a music-loving crowd, it will not work.

Only when you understand your target audience and weave your service offerings according to their needs, you will succeed.

Therefore, you must cover 3 important areas in the market overview or market analysis section of your bar business plan:

  • Bar industry status quo : how big is the bar industry in your area? What is its growth rate (or decline rate) and what are the factors contributing to its growth or decline?
  • Competition overview : how many competitors are there? How do they compare vs. your business? How can you differentiate yourself from them?
  • Customer analysis: who is your target audience? What type of bars do they prefer? How regularly do they drink? What type of drinks do they prefer? How much do they spend at bars every month?

a) Bar Industry Status Quo

How big is the bar industry in the us.

The US bar industry is estimated to be at $26.7bn in 2022 , and it registered a growth of 16.4% in 2022. The primary factor driving the growth is the increased per capita expenditure on alcohol. Also, there are approximately 71,634 bars and nightclubs in the country.

How big is the bar industry in your area?

Once you provide the overall picture of the US, divert your attention to the area where you want to operate.

Yet, it might not be possible to find region or area-specific numbers online. In such case, you must estimate the size yourself. Read our article on how to estimate TAM, SAM and SOM for your startup.

For example, if there are 71,634 bars and nightclubs in the country with total annual revenue of $26.7bn, the average annual revenue for each establishment is $372,728. Therefore, if the area where you want to open your bar has 30 operational establishments, you can safely assume that the bar industry in your area is worth approximately $11.2 million.

How fast is the bar industry growing in the area?

You must show the expected growth rate of the bar industry in your area. This information may not be available via online research papers. However, assessing the growth rate will not be difficult.

You can approach each bar separately and ask for their year of establishment. You will get a clear picture of the overall growth rate. For instance, if there were 20 bars in 2018 and 30 bars in 2022, the average annual growth rate is 11%.

What are the current bar market trends in your area?

It is vital to understand the trends of the bar industry in your area. Understanding trends will allow you to devise marketing strategies.

Understanding trends won’t be easy. You must conduct research and talk with your target audience. Additionally, you must also study your competitors to understand their target audience, the products they sell, etc.

Some common questions you may ask the target audience include:

  • What type of bars do they prefer?
  • At what time of the day do they prefer to visit a bar?
  • How frequently do they visit bars?
  • What type of drinks and food do they usually order?

You can ask as many questions as you need to understand the evolving trends.

b) Competition Overview

Studying your competitors’ business models is vital. You need to understand what makes them successful or why they fail. A clear understanding of their products and services, marketing strategies, etc., will allow you to provide a better service.

If your competitors are offering nearly the same products & services, then what is their market share and how do they market their products & services to attract new customers?

It is always a good idea to do some research (if necessary, physically visit your competitors without revealing your business intentions) and create a comparative table summarizing their product & service offerings, marketing strategies, target audience, etc.

Here is a sample table that you can use as a reference:

Bar SWOT Analysis

Try to provide a SWOT analysis as part of your competitor analysis too. It must be crisp and highly focused. SWOT stands for Strength, Weakness, Opportunities, and Threats.

Here is a sample that you can use as a reference:

  • Strengths : 8 years of experience bartender experience and 6 years of senior management experience in a reputed bar, experienced staff with a minimum of 4 years of experience
  • Weaknesses : Startup cost, no initial brand reputation
  • Opportunities : A massive campus crowd of legal drinking age, no college bar catering to the specific needs of the campus crowd
  • Threats : Increasing rent due to increased demand for commercial spaces, a high street brand will start operations shortly

A clear understanding of your strengths and weakness along with opportunities and threats in the real market can help you to design your marketing strategy. It also helps potential investors to assess the risk and reward profile of your business.

c) Customer Analysis

This is the sub-section where you will provide a detailed analysis of your target audience. You will expand the data points your provided earlier in the Business Overview segment.

Some important points that you must include in your customer analysis include:

  • Age and gender distribution (you can get local demographic data from )
  • Per capita expenditure on alcohol
  • Frequency of bar visits
  • Average monthly income and disposable income
  • Average bill size per visit
  • Average yearly or monthly spending on alcohol and food at bars
  • Type of bars preferred
  • The expected price range for drinks and food
  • Inclination towards loyalty programs & free perks
  • Things they dislike about existing bars and what they expect to be improved

You can add as many data points as required to validate your business decision. The idea here is to display your deep understanding of the target audience and the needs, preferences, and expectations. This knowledge can help you to tailor your products & services to attract new customers.

4. Bar Sales & Marketing

This is the segment where you outline your customer acquisition strategy. Try to answer the following questions:

  • What are the different marketing strategies you will use?
  • How do you intend to track the success of your marketing strategy?
  • What is your CAC or customer acquisition cost?
  • What are your USPs?
  • What is your marketing budget?
  • What promos and offers do you intend to provide for attracting new customers?

Let’s expand a bit on a few questions below:

What marketing channels do bars use?

A few marketing channels that bars typically use are:

  • Content marketing (share content like best foods that pair with beer, wine, whiskey, rum, and vodka; how to make crystal clear ice balls or cubes at home, etc.) on platforms like blogs, social media, etc.
  • Word of mouth
  • Local listing
  • Instagram/Facebook ads, etc.

It is not necessary to use all channels. You can start by focusing on a few of them. You can include other marketing strategies later.

Also, you must have a fair and nearly accurate estimate of your marketing budget. Failure to display a well-planned and adequate cash flow for advertising and marketing can lead to investors losing confidence.

bar business plan template excel

What are your Unique Selling Propositions (USPs)?

In other words, how do you differentiate yourself vs. competitors? This is very important as you might need to win customers from competitors.

A few examples of USPs are:

  • Happy Hours : Enjoy a 30% discount on all drinks at food between 2 PM and 4 PM
  • Free Drinks : 2 drinks on the house for bills above $200
  • Price Match : Find a bar with a lower price for the same drinks and we will match the price

Your USP will depend on your business model, competitor analysis, and target audience. Whatever your USP be, it should appeal to your potential customers and attract them. Plus, The USP you offer should be convincing enough for investors and lenders.

5. Management & Organizational Structure

You must address 2 things here:

  • The management team and their experience/track record
  • The organizational structure: different team members and who reports to whom?

a) Management

Small businesses often fail because of managerial weaknesses. Thus, having a strong management team is vital. Highlight the experience and education of senior managers that you intend to hire to oversee your bar business.

Describe their duties, responsibilities, and roles. Also, highlight their previous experience and explain how they succeeded in their previous roles.

It is also important that you explain how their experiences and qualifications help you in implementing the bar you are proposing. If they have specialized training and education (such as business management, bartender certification, etc.), add that information.

b) Organizational Structure

Even if you haven’t already hired a senior manager, bartender, waitress or waiter, barback, security guard & bouncer, and other relevant staff members, you must provide a flowchart of the organizational structure defining the hierarchy of reporting.

Such a flowchart will demonstrate your management skills and plans to the interested investors or lenders. If necessary, they may even suggest changes to improve the management structure.

6. Financial Plan

The financial plan is perhaps, with the executive summary, the most important section of any bar business plan.

Indeed, a solid financial plan tells lenders that your business is viable and can repay the loan you need from them. If you’re looking to raise equity from private investors, a solid financial plan will prove them your bar is an attractive investment.

There should be 2 sections to your financial plan section:

  • The startup costs of your project (if you plan to start a new bar, purchase new equipment, renovate your bar, etc.)
  • The 5-year financial projections

a) Startup Costs

Before we expand on 5-year financial projections in the following section, it’s always best practice to start with listing the startup costs of your project. For a bar, startup costs are all the expenses you incur before you open your bar and starting making sales. These expenses typically are:

  • The renovation / refurbishment of the building / space
  • Equipment & furniture
  • Initial inventory
  • Licenses & permits

As an example, it costs on average $148,500 to $239,000 to open a hard liquor bar with 80 seats in a premium location.

Note that these costs are for illustrative purposes and may not be fully relevant for your business. For more information on how much it costs to open and run a bar, read our article here .

b) Financial Projections

In addition to startup costs, you will now need to build a solid 5-year financial model for your bar.

Your financial projections should be built using a spreadsheet (e.g. Excel or Google Sheets) and presented in the form of tables and charts in the business plan of your bar.

As usual, keep it concise here and save details (for example detailed financial statements, financial metrics, key assumptions used for the projections) for the appendix instead.

Your financial projections should answer at least the following questions:

  • How much revenue do you expect to generate over the next 5 years?
  • When do you expect to break even?
  • How much cash will you burn until you get there?
  • What’s the impact of a change in pricing (say 20%) on your margins?
  • What is your average customer acquisition cost?

You should include here your 3 financial statements (income statement, balance sheet and cash flow statement). This means you must forecast:

  • The number of customers over time ;
  • Your expected revenue ;
  • Operating costs to run the business ;
  • Any other cash flow items (e.g. capex, debt repayment, etc.).

When projecting your revenue, make sure to sensitize pricing and the number of customers as a small change in these assumptions will have a big impact on your revenues.

7. Funding Ask

This is the last section of your bar business plan. Now that we have explained what your bar is about, the products you sell and to whom, what’s your strategy, where you go and how you get there, this section must answer the following questions:

  • How much funding do you need?
  • What financial instrument(s) do you need: is this equity or debt, or even a free-money public grant?
  • How long will this funding last?
  • Where else does the money come from? If you apply for a SBA loan for example, where does the other part of the investment come from (your own capital, private investors?)

If you raise debt:

  • What percentage of the total funding the loan represents?
  • What is the corresponding Debt Service Coverage Ratio ?

If you raise equity

  • What percentage ownership are you selling as part of this funding round?
  • What is the corresponding valuation of your business?

Use of Funds

Any bar business plan should include a clear use of funds section. This is where you explain how the money will be spent.

Will you spend most of the loan / investment in paying your employees’ salaries? Or will it cover mostly the cost for the lease deposit and the renovation?

Those are very important questions you should be able to answer in the blink of an eye. Don’t worry, this should come straight from your financial projections. If you’ve built solid projections like in our Bar financial model template , you won’t have any issues answering these questions.

For the use of funds, we also recommend using a pie chart like the one we have in our financial model template where we outline the main expenses categories as shown below.

What is A Bar Business Plan?

A bar business plan is a strategic roadmap that outlines your vision and the steps required to bring it to fruition.

In essence, it’s the blueprint to grow your business and ensure its longevity in a competitive market.

One might ask, “What makes a bar business plan unique?” It’s the blend of the universal principles of business, combined with the niche requirements of the bar industry. This includes, but is not limited to, licensing, menu crafting, entertainment provisions, and safety measures.

Given the dynamic nature of the bar industry, it’s important to include not only your immediate goals but also long-term objectives and strategies for adapting to market shifts. With a clear and comprehensive bar business plan, you’re laying a solid foundation for a successful enterprise.

It provides direction and keeps all stakeholders aligned with the business’s overarching goals.

Financial Planning: One of the main reasons business owners create business plans is for robust financial planning. A bar has various financial intricacies, from sourcing ingredients to staffing and marketing expenses.

Tips For Creating An Effective Bar Business Plan Outline

Crafting a comprehensive bar business plan is pivotal in turning your vision into a successful venture. Here are some insightful tips to help you create an efficient outline:

Understand Your Niche : Begin by identifying the unique character of your bar. Is it a cozy neighborhood nook or a sophisticated wine bar? The specifics determine the kind of customers you’ll attract and the atmosphere you aim to create.

Include Comprehensive Details : The following bar business plan components are essential: executive summary, bar description, menu offer, market analysis, investment plans, financial forecasts, team structure, and marketing strategies. Don’t skimp on details; a comprehensive plan showcases your dedication and thoroughness.

Focus on Your Unique Selling Proposition (USP) : What makes your bar stand out? Maybe it’s an exclusive range of craft beer and wine, or perhaps it’s an innovative theme. Always include this unique factor in your business plan as it’s pivotal for attracting customers.

Plan Your Offerings : Are you focusing just on drinks or do you also plan to serve a variety of food items? Highlight your primary offerings, be it beer and wine or gourmet appetizers.

Keep It Adaptable : The bar industry is ever-evolving. Ensure your business plan is flexible enough to adapt to changing trends and customer preferences.

Seek Feedback : Before finalizing, share your draft with industry professionals or trusted peers. Their insights could help you include in a winning strategy that perhaps you hadn’t thought of.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. what makes a bar profitable.

A bar’s profitability hinges on multiple factors. A strategic location, a unique selling proposition, efficient cost management, and high-quality service all play pivotal roles. Moreover, understanding the preferences of your target audience and adapting accordingly, offering promotions during off-peak hours, and managing overheads effectively can significantly enhance a bar’s profit margins.

2. What is the executive summary of a bar business plan?

The executive summary is a concise overview of the bar’s business plan. It provides a snapshot of the business concept, its objectives, the financial outlook, and primary offerings. This section is particularly crucial for potential investors as it gives them a quick glance at the bar’s potential profitability and operational strategy.

3. How to write a good executive summary for a business plan with example?

When writing an executive summary, it’s essential to be clear and concise. Start with your bar’s mission and vision. Outline the primary objectives, the bar’s USP, and provide a brief financial overview.

Example: “ Sapphire Lounge aims to be the city’s premier wine bar, offering an eclectic range of international wines in a cozy, upscale environment. Located in the heart of the business district, our vision is to provide professionals a relaxing spot to unwind. We project an annual revenue of $500,000, with an initial investment of $150,000. Our unique wine-tasting events and wine-pairing dinners set us apart in the competitive landscape.”

4. Do bars make a lot of money?

The profitability of bars varies based on several factors like location, concept, management, and market demand. While some bars can yield high profits, especially those in prime locations with a unique concept, others might struggle due to competition, mismanagement, or changing market trends. However, with the right strategy, understanding of the target audience, and operational efficiency, bars can indeed be quite lucrative.  

Crafting a comprehensive business plan is the bedrock of any successful bar venture. By diligently addressing each section and meticulously detailing all elements you aim to include in your business plan, you’re not only preparing for potential challenges but also envisioning the pathway to success. Remember, a business plan is not a static document; it’s a dynamic blueprint that can evolve with the changing demands of the industry and your clientele. Every decision, from the drinks you offer to the promotions you run, should align with the vision set out in your plan, ensuring long-term growth and sustainability.

The importance of the financial model in your business plan.

A solid financial model is a critical component of any well-prepared business plan. It provides a comprehensive and detailed projection of your business’ financial performance, including revenue, expenses, cash flow, and profitability. The financial model is not just a mere set of numbers, but a strategic tool that helps you understand the financial health of your business, make informed decisions, and communicate your business’ financial viability to potential investors, lenders, and other stakeholders. In this article, we will delve into the importance of the financial model in your business plan.

  • Provides a roadmap for financial success : A well-structured financial model serves as a roadmap for your business’ financial success. It outlines your revenue streams, cost structure, and cash flow projections, helping you understand the financial implications of your business strategies and decisions. It allows you to forecast your future financial performance, set financial goals, and measure your progress over time. A comprehensive financial model helps you identify potential risks, opportunities, and areas that may require adjustments to achieve your financial objectives.
  • Demonstrates financial viability to stakeholders : Investors, lenders, and other stakeholders want to see that your business is financially viable and has a plan to generate revenue, manage expenses, and generate profits. A robust financial model in your business plan demonstrates that you have a solid understanding of your business’ financials and have a plan to achieve profitability. It provides evidence of the market opportunity, pricing strategy, sales projections, and financial sustainability. A well-prepared financial model increases your credibility and instills confidence in your business among potential investors and lenders.
  • Helps with financial decision-making : Your financial model is a valuable tool for making informed financial decisions. It helps you analyze different scenarios, evaluate the financial impact of your decisions, and choose the best course of action for your business. For example, you can use your financial model to assess the feasibility of a new product launch, determine the optimal pricing strategy, or evaluate the impact of changing market conditions on your cash flow. A well-structured financial model helps you make data-driven decisions that are aligned with your business goals and financial objectives.
  • Assists in securing funding : If you are seeking funding from investors or lenders, a robust financial model is essential. It provides a clear picture of your business’ financials and shows how the funds will be used to generate revenue and profits. It includes projections for revenue, expenses, cash flow, and profitability, along with a breakdown of assumptions and methodology used. It also provides a realistic assessment of the risks and challenges associated with your business and outlines the strategies to mitigate them. A well-prepared financial model in your business plan can significantly increase your chances of securing funding as it demonstrates your business’ financial viability and growth potential.
  • Facilitates financial management and monitoring : A financial model is not just for external stakeholders; it is also a valuable tool for internal financial management and monitoring. It helps you track your actual financial performance against your projections, identify any deviations, and take corrective actions if needed. It provides a clear overview of your business’ cash flow, profitability, and financial health, allowing you to proactively manage your finances and make informed decisions to achieve your financial goals. A well-structured financial model helps you stay on top of your business’ financials and enables you to take timely actions to ensure your business’ financial success.
  • Enhances business valuation : If you are planning to sell your business or seek investors for an exit strategy, a robust financial model is crucial. It provides a solid foundation for business valuation as it outlines your historical financial performance, future projections, and the assumptions behind them. It helps potential buyers or investors understand the financial potential of your business and assess its value. A well-prepared financial model can significantly impact the valuation of your business, and a higher valuation can lead to better negotiation terms and higher returns on your investment.
  • Supports strategic planning : Your financial model is an integral part of your strategic planning process. It helps you align your financial goals with your overall business strategy and provides insights into the financial feasibility of your strategic initiatives. For example, if you are planning to expand your business, enter new markets, or invest in new technologies, your financial model can help you assess the financial impact of these initiatives, including the investment required, the expected return on investment, and the timeline for achieving profitability. It enables you to make informed decisions about the strategic direction of your business and ensures that your financial goals are aligned with your overall business objectives.
  • Enhances accountability and transparency : A robust financial model promotes accountability and transparency in your business. It provides a clear framework for setting financial targets, measuring performance, and holding yourself and your team accountable for achieving financial results. It helps you monitor your progress towards your financial goals and enables you to take corrective actions if needed. A well-structured financial model also enhances transparency by providing a clear overview of your business’ financials, assumptions, and methodologies used in your projections. It ensures that all stakeholders, including investors, lenders, employees, and partners, have a clear understanding of your business’ financial performance and prospects.

In conclusion, a well-prepared financial model is a crucial component of your business plan. It provides a roadmap for financial success, demonstrates financial viability to stakeholders, helps with financial decision-making, assists in securing funding, facilitates financial management and monitoring, enhances business valuation, supports strategic planning, and enhances accountability and transparency in your business. It is not just a set of numbers, but a strategic tool that helps you understand, analyze, and optimize your business’ financial performance. Investing time and effort in creating a comprehensive and robust financial model in your business plan is vital for the success of your business and can significantly increase your chances of achieving your financial goals.

Our goal is to be the most popular mobile bar that caters to weddings, graduations, parties, and other special events.

Our basic package is a pour-over service that serves beer, wine, and sodas. Our mixer package offers the same drinks plus mixers. Finally, our most premium package offers all of the above as well as handcrafted cocktails.

Wild Heart Bar History

Upon surveying the local customer base and finding potential office locations, Kayla Brown incorporated Wild Heart Bar as an S-Corporation on June 1, 2023.

The business is currently being run out of Kayla’s home office, but once the lease on the office location is finalized, all operations will be run from there.

Since incorporation, the company has achieved the following milestones:

  • Found a location for the office

Industry Analysis

The mobile bar industry has experienced overall growth over the past five years. This growth was largely driven but sustained growth in consumer spending and per capita expenditure on alcohol. The industry will continue to benefit from economic growth, a decrease in the unemployment rate, and increased discretionary spending. Additionally, per capita expenditure on alcohol is expected to increase at a faster rate than in the previous five-year period, particularly on premium beverages.

Growth in the industry is also driven by the increase in large gatherings and special events. For several years, these events were limited due to the pandemic. Now that the pandemic is over, many people are enjoying spending time with friends and family by throwing parties and other fun occasions. Many of these occasions are improved by a mobile bar or catering service. Therefore, we expect the industry to grow substantially over the next five years.

Customer Analysis

Demographic profile of target market, customer segmentation.

Wild Heart Bar will primarily target the following customer profile:

  • Affluent and middle-class residents
  • Graduation parties
  • Office parties
  • Other special events

Competitive Analysis

Direct and indirect competitors.

Wild Heart Bar will face competition from other companies with similar business profiles. A description of each competitor company is below.

Frankie’s Traveling Bar

Frankie’s Traveling Bar is a mobile bar that caters for weddings located throughout Massachusetts. They offer very simple drinks, such as beers, wines, and simple mixers. Frankie’s is popular for its affordability; however, its affordable prices result in a limited drink menu. As such, we expect that Frankie’s will only be a minor competitor. Customers who want more options for their guests will be more inclined to hire Wild Heart Bar.

Cocktails on Wheels

Cocktails on Wheels is a mobile bar that serves cocktails, mixers, and liquor. They cater to graduations, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and similar events that are often improved with lots of alcohol. Their target market primarily involves very affluent young adults. As such, we expect that Cocktails on Wheels will be a minor competitor since they have such a small customer segment.

Mobile Spirits

Mobile Spirits is a new high-class mobile bar that serves the affluent society of the Boston area. They primarily cater to upper-class weddings and other events and serve the most expensive drinks in the area. Though Mobile Spirits will continue to thrive, we expect that they will only be a competitor for this upper-class market. Customers who want the same level of service for a more affordable rate will hire Wild Heart’s services instead.

Competitive Advantage

Wild Heart Bar will be able to offer the following advantages over their competition:

  • Multiple packages : We offer multiple catering packages that will all offer a variety of drinks to choose from. Our basic package will be great for customers on a budget who still want a great selection of beer and wine at their event. Our premium packages are for customers who can afford to go all out and will include an extensive list of beer, wine, mixers, and cocktails.
  • Management : Our management team has years of bartending and management experience that allows us to market and serve customers in a much more sophisticated manner than our competitors.
  • Relationships : Having worked in the industry for several years, Kayla Brown has the contacts with suppliers, promoters, and influencers to launch a mobile bar successfully.

Marketing Plan

Brand & value proposition.

Wild Heart Bar will offer a unique value proposition to its clientele:

  • Extensive menu of wine, beer, mixers, and cocktails.
  • Fun, friendly, and professional staff.
  • Moderate pricing.

Promotions Strategy

The promotions strategy for Wild Heart Bar is as follows:

Social Media

Wild Heart Bar will use social media to cater to the social media-obsessed portion of Boston. Kayla will create Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook business accounts to post “Coming Soon” announcements as well as pictures of our drinks, the trailer, and us working at previous events.

SEO Website Marketing

Wild Heart Bar plans to maintain a strong SEO presence on search engines like Google and Bing. When a person types in “local mobile bar” or “Boston mobile bar,” Wild Heart Bar will appear in the top three choices. The website will include the full bar menu, reservation packages and fees, and pictures of the finely crafted cocktails, beer selections, and wine offerings.

Word of Mouth/Referrals

Wild Heart Bar will encourage word-of-mouth marketing from loyal and satisfied clients. The company will incentivize its existing customer base to encourage friends and colleagues to hire our services.

Print Advertising

Wild Heart Bar will invest in professionally designed print ads to display in programs or flyers and to put in magazines, newspapers, and direct mailers.

The pricing of Wild Heart Bar will be moderate and on par with competitors so customers feel they receive value when reserving our mobile bar for their special event.

Operations Plan

The operations plan for Wild Heart Bar is as follows: Operation Functions:

  • Kayla Brown will be the Owner of Wild Heart Bar. She will be in charge of developing the drink menus, ordering alcohol inventory, training staff, and ensuring customer service. She will spend the next several months hiring the following staff:

Best Practices for Excel Templates

Excel spreadsheet templates are powerful tools that can significantly enhance your productivity , but it’s essential to follow best practices to make the most of them. Here are some tips and strategies to help you use Excel templates effectively.

Choose the Right Template

Selecting the appropriate template for your specific task is the first step to success. Consider the following factors when choosing a template:

  • Task Complexity: Ensure the template aligns with the complexity of your task. Simple tasks may require basic templates, while more complex tasks need advanced templates.
  • Customizability: Look for templates that allow customization. Templates that are too rigid may not suit your unique needs.
  • Industry or Use Case: Many templates are designed for specific industries or use cases. For financial tasks, for instance, choose templates tailored to your industry, such as retail, healthcare, or real estate.
  • Scalability: If your task may grow in complexity or data volume, opt for a template that can scale with your needs.

Understand Formulas and Functions

Excel templates often come with built-in formulas and functions to automate calculations. To use these templates effectively, it’s crucial to understand how these formulas work.

  • Learn the Basics: Familiarize yourself with common Excel functions like SUM, AVERAGE, IF, VLOOKUP, and more. These are the building blocks of many templates.
  • Review Formulas: Take time to review the formulas used in the template. Understand how they calculate results and what data they depend on.
  • Customize Formulas: If needed, customize formulas to suit your specific requirements. Modify cell references or add new calculations as necessary.

Input Data Accurately

Accurate data input is essential to obtain meaningful results from Excel spreadsheet templates.

  • Double-Check Data: Ensure all data entered into the template is accurate and error-free. A slight mistake can lead to significant inaccuracies in calculations.
  • Use Data Validation: Implement data validation rules to prevent incorrect data entry. Excel can prompt users when data doesn’t meet specified criteria.
  • Consistent Formatting: Maintain consistent formatting throughout the template. This includes date formats, number formats, and currency symbols.
  • Document Data Sources: Keep track of your data sources, especially if you’re pulling data from external sources. This documentation can help troubleshoot discrepancies later.

Regularly Save and Backup

Excel templates represent valuable work, so protecting your data is essential.

  • Frequent Saving: Save your work regularly to prevent data loss in case of unexpected software crashes or power outages.
  • Version Control: Maintain version control by saving different iterations of your template. Use meaningful file names and dates to track changes.
  • Backup Files: Implement a backup strategy. Regularly create copies of your Excel files and store them in a secure location, whether it’s a cloud service or an external drive.

Understand Template Limitations

Excel spreadsheet templates have limitations, and it’s essential to be aware of them.

  • Data Volume: Excel may not handle very large datasets efficiently. Consider using a database or specialized software for extensive data management.
  • Complexity: Templates have limits in terms of complexity. You might need to consider custom software or consulting with a specialist for more advanced or intricate tasks.
  • Data Security: Be cautious when handling sensitive or confidential data within Excel. Implement password protection and encryption where necessary.

Customize for Your Needs

While templates provide a structured starting point, don’t hesitate to customize them to better suit your unique requirements.

  • Add or Remove Fields: Include additional or remove unnecessary fields to streamline data entry and reporting.
  • Format and Styling: Adjust the template’s formatting and styling to match your preferences and branding guidelines.
  • Automate Repetitive Tasks: Excel allows you to automate repetitive tasks using macros. Learn how to create and use macros to save time.

Stay Updated and Educated

Excel is a continually evolving software, and staying updated with the latest features and best practices can benefit your productivity.

  • Software Updates: Keep your Excel software up-to-date to access new features and security patches.
  • Online Resources: Explore online resources, spreadsheet tutorials , and forums to expand your Excel skills and troubleshoot issues.
  • Advanced Training: Consider advanced Excel training courses or certifications to become an Excel power user.

By following these best practices, you can harness the full potential of Excel spreadsheet templates, streamline your tasks, and make more informed decisions.
