Answer by  idiotjones (705)

A sound business plan has the following: demonstration of viability, supporting data, competing forces, amount of capital required, and plan of execution. The writer must show how much money is required, how the money is to be used, the long term plan, and what risks are imminent. All of this must be backed by convincing data.

There are a number of books and software programs that walk you through how to write a business plan for a restaurant. It is the toughest business to secure capital for, unless you or a principal has a stellar record/reputation of success in the business.

A good place to start would be going to your local Small Business Administration office, which is generally listed under the name "SCORE", which stands for Service Corps of Retired Executives. These local offices provide "free" advice, materials and information on how to start a business, including how to secure financing and venture capital.

A business plan typically consists of separate sections in which you describe different aspects of your business. Start with a short summary that persuasively describes your idea and the market need it fulfills. Also include sections for market/current competition, operations, marketing, management, and finance. The finance section will describe how much money is needed and the expected return on investment.
