Restaurant Budgeting Sheet
Understanding a restaurant's profitability is vital to ensuring it will deliver necessary profits and ultimately ensuring its success. Comparing a restaurant's actual profitability to its budget allows the owner/manager to understand what aspects of the business are performing better than, equal to or less than the business plan. This can be an important tool in making informed business decisions to ensure required profitability and ultimately cash flow. A budget can span over any time period the restaurant deems appropriate. Budgets can be broken down to weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly time periods.
