Based upon a 34 seat neighborhood Ice Cream Shop making its' own fresh Micro Batch Ice Cream Flavors daily along with specialty coffee and limited breakfast, lunch and dinner menu. Can be edited for any type of Ice Cream concept also includes wholesale as well as retail sales of home made pints, quarts, and pies. 

The Industry

While the operating environment will remain challenging, America’s 980,000 restaurants are expected to post record sales in 2013. According to the National Restaurant Association, Restaurant Industry sales are expected to reach a record $660.5 billion in 2013 a 3.8 percent increase over 2012 and marking the third consecutive year that industry sales will have topped $600 billion. 

While the restaurant industry is expected to grow in 2013, operators will continue to face a range of challenges. The top challenges cited by restaurateurs vary by industry segment, and include food costs, the economy and health care reform. There is currently substantial pent-up demand for restaurant services, with 2 out of 5 consumers saying they are not using restaurant as often as they would like; with improving economic conditions that demand is likely to turn into sales in 2013. The Industry is tied directly to the health of the U.S. Economy and consumer disposable income. The CBO anticipates that the current recession, which started in December 2007, ended in the second quarter of 2009, making it the longest recession since World War II. Such growth compares to a 2.6% real rate of decline during 2009, the depths of the recession. The swing in performance from 2009 to 2010 was the widest since 1983, a period of 27 years. The increase in real GDP in 2010 primarily reflected positive contributions from private inventory investment, exports, personal consumption expenditures (PCE), nonresidential fixed investment, and federal government spending. Severe economic downturns often sow the seeds of robust recoveries. During a slump in economic activity, consumers defer purchases, especially for housing and durable goods, and businesses postpone capital spending and try to cut inventories. Once demand in the economy picks up, the disparity between the desired and actual stocks of capital assets and consumer durable goods widens quickly, and spending by consumers and businesses can accelerate rapidly. Although the CBO expects that the current recovery will be spurred by that dynamic, in all likelihood, the recovery will also be dampened by a number of factors. Those factors include slow wage and employment growth, high unemployment as well as a continued sluggish housing market. Current expectations by the CBO are for real GDP growth of 1.7% to as much as 2.25% in 2012 and as much as 4.1% in 2014.

ource: Congressional Budget Office Economic Projections and Revisions, Note 2014 is a conference board projection see, http://www.conference-board.org/data/usforecast.cfm

The continued rebound in GDP will also affect real disposable income growth. Real DPI increased 1.8 percent in 2010, compared with an increase of 0.5 percent in 2009. Adjusted for inflation, per-capita disposable incomes have been struggling for the past two years and are currently at about the level first achieved in November of 2007. Current expectations are for only 1/2 of 1% disposable income growth in 2013 with a solid 1.9% in 2014. Most of 2011 saw a slow decline in incomes, a trend that began reversing in November of 2012. Real GDP growth was approximately 2.0 percent in 2012 and current expectations by the CBOE are 1.7 percent in 2013 with the economy gaining momentum in the second half of 2013. It then assumes an average growth rate of 4.1 percent for the years of 2014 to 2017. While food-price inflation was a typical 2.2 percent during 2012, it’s expected to be nearly 4 percent, maybe more, during 2013, as the impacts of last year’s drought finally come into play, according to a recent report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The unemployment rate is assumed to be mostly unchanged from current levels. We do not reach “full employment” for several years, with the forecasted unemployment rate being 5.6 percent by 2017. With less uncertainty by businesses and investors as to tax policy this year and next and with rising expectations that split government in Washington will slow the explosion in government spending the economy looks poised for sustained growth as businesses and investors get back to the business of growing and expanding the bottom line. While the industry is expected to grow in 2013, the top challenges cited by restaurateurs are food costs, building and maintaining sales volume, and the economy. Giving consumers what they want will be crucial for restaurant operators in 2013. As the recession has caused 8 out of 10 consumers to cut back on spending to some degree, it is more important than ever for operators to nudge those guests into patronizing their restaurants. For operators just getting started this may be the best time within the business cycle to plan and open your new facility understanding that with interest rates still at all time low levels and marginal operators going out of business you will have accounted for the marginal efficiencies necessary to not only survive against the competition but to thrive as we cycle once again into economic expansion.

The Ice Cream Segment

The Global Market for Ice Cream is now more than  22 billion dollars annually. Ice cream and related frozen desserts are consumed by more than 93% of households in the United States and we now consume more than 1.6 billion gallons annually. In the U.S. about 50% is sold through Super Markets and 50% at your local Ice Cream Parlor.  Consumer demand for little luxuries or " Small Indulgences". Rewarding oneself with a Super Premium Ice Cream purchase is a way for middle-class Americans to taste a bit of guilt free opulence.

Starting a small business is always risky, and the chance of success is slim. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, over 50% of small businesses fail in the first year and 95% fail within the first five years. Whether you are starting a new Ice Cream Parlor are looking to raise additional capital to expand your currently profitable Ice Cream Parlor, or looking to evaluate and value your Ice Cream Business to sell, current statistics prove that you will do much better with a business plan than without. According to Dunn and Bradstreet the primary reasons for failure vary, but all of the reasons  come under the category of poor planning. You are a part of the second largest Industry in the United States, the Food Service Industry,  representing 4% of the U.S. Gross National Product in the most competitive Industry in the world. Your management decisions will decide whether your business survives or thrives in the face of increased competition. The most important benefit of a business plan is that it sets the stage for the future of your Ice Cream Shop as you want it to be positioned in the marketplace. A business plan will make it easy for your banker to take action as he/she gains insight into the details of your business and the goals that you have outlined. Potential investors can review your plan and decide whether or not to make an investment based upon the risk. You will benefit most as you study and gain detailed insight into your own operations. Updating and constantly reviewing your plan will give you more insight as both a manager and decision maker.

TIME IS MONEY...

We have estimated that it takes an average of 100 hours to research, and write a comprehensive business plan within any Industry. Creating and compiling the five year financial plan and forecasts including 5 years of budgets, income statements, balance sheets, cash flow analysis, key financial ratio analysis, and break even analysis can take more than 20 hours of work by you or your accountant. Now consider sitting down in front of your computer to edit and fill in the details of an already written and organized Ice Cream Shop business plan and outline. Whether you are starting a traditional Ice Cream Parlor, or a Specialty Shop with Gourmet Micro Batch Ice Cream made fresh everyday served with fresh gourmet Coffee, are looking for expansion capital to open your second facility, or want to sell your multi Parlor chain, you will be able to edit this plan into your own.
