4.0 Strategic and Market Analysis

4.1 Economic Outlook

This section of the analysis will detail the economic climate, the Tapas and general restaurant industry, the customer profile, and the competition that the business will face as it progresses through its business operations. Currently, the economic market condition in the United States is moderate. The meltdown of the sub prime mortgage market coupled with increasing gas prices has led many people to believe that the US is on the cusp of a double dip economic recession. This slowdown in the economy has also greatly impacted real estate sales, which has halted to historical lows. However, the Tapas Restaurant will operate with great economic stability as people will continue to purchase entrees to the low pricing point for these products.

4.2 Industry Analysis

There over 600,000 restaurants and eateries in the United States. Gross annual receipts total more than $172 billion dollars per year. It is one of the country’s largest grossing industries. The industry also employs over ten million people, and generates an average annual payroll of more than $34 billion dollars per year. As the country has become significantly wealthier of the last ten years, more and more Americans are eating out. Time has also become a concern for the average American family. Studies have shown that more than 40% of American families eat out at least one night per week. Americans, on the whole, have also become much busier. More and more families now have two incomes, and as such, the tradition of staying at home and cooking meals is vanishing. Mr. Doe is seeking to enjoy the benefits of this market trend. Among the 600,000 different restaurants within the United States there are approximately 20,000 businesses that specifically specialize in the sale of Tapas Restaurant cuisine. The demand for this type of food has become more focused as more people have come to enjoy small plates meals rather than large sit down dinners. This trend is expected to continue for a substantial period of time over the next ten years.

Common traits among clients will include: • Annual household income exceeding $50,000 • Lives or works no more than 10 miles from the Company’s location. • Will spend $25 to $35 per visit to the Tapas Restaurant location
