The Restaurant Monthly Forecast Model provides a 3-year annual and monthly forecast specific to a restaurant operation. Included in the template you will find:
• The Income Statement, Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Statement
• An Assumptions Section with key drivers for the business-specific to a restaurant
• Supporting Schedules Section for PPE and Debt
• Graph to visually display the Monthly Cash Flow Statement
First is the Assumptions sections where assumptions are entered in the cells for the projection periods. Assumptions focus on key drivers specific to running a Restaurant. Here you will see assumptions for monthly revenue growth, COGS associated with Food and Beverage, and various operating costs. This includes financing assumptions for up to four loans.
The Income Statement includes detailed line items specific to running a restaurant. Expenses can be added or subtracted without disrupting the model. The Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Statement Sections are all driven by formulas and do not require any adjustments. The Supporting Schedules section is formula-driven that is tied to the Assumptions and 3 Statement sections, so no editing is necessary. Lastly, the Charts and Graphs sections display the Monthly Cash Flow visually. The correlating data is above the graphs and tied to the model with formulas so they will automatically adjust to any modifications in the model.
All cells in blue font are input cells where custom information can be entered. All cells in black font are formulas set to streamline the model. Sections are grouped to condense the model to view sections individually.
