This will help me to work out the delivery dates for pre-booked items. The building in which the equipment is housed is also a consideration because of noise levels and safety issues. The design of the production unit will be carefully organised to avoid too much wasteful movement between functions. For me to acquire equipment, a number of critical decisions will have to be made. I'll have to decide whether to acquire the equipment now or buy them or lease them. Other factors that will affect my choice of decision will be the supplier I chose. This will be determined by quality, payment terms, technical back up and after sales service. The equipment I'll need includes a wide range of items including telephones, vehicles, cooker, microwave, dishwasher, cutlery, tables, chairs, pots, fryers, fridge, freezer, cups and plates. Equipments Price Cooker �1505 Microwave �329 Dishwasher �629 44 pieces of Cutleries �100 1 Tables and 4 chairs �289 (�5780 for 20 tables and 80 chairs) Pots �500 Fryers �279 Fridge �1000 Freezer �500 Cups �100 Plates �150 Vehicles �6000 Telephones and fax machine �100 1 Aprons �13.50 (135 for 10) Blender �152 Labour requirement: the two principal positions needed to operate Keemto are the manager and the cook. I'll be the one to take these responsibilities and employ some staffs, which are as follows with their wages. Staffs Wages 2 Full time cook 600 6 Waiters/waitresses 1,200 1 Kitchen porter 200 Total labour cost 2000 Stage of production: I'll need to make decisions about how to divide up the stages in the production cycle. A small easy to produce food will require only a few stages whereas a highly complex item will need many more stages. It will also depend upon the number of functions one machine can complete. This will help me to set up a well-controlled operation, cook a steady flow of finished foods, reduce wastage and maintain specified quality standards to meet my customer requirements. ...read more.

Conclusion

while other sites had irrelevant information. One major positive aspect of my business is that there is very little money tied up in stock. In my financial plan I said I would need a �15000 loan to get started. This is because some businesses needed large amounts of start up cash to start trading. If I were to reconstruct my plan then I would go about it in a similar fashion, but make a few changes. For instance I would research my market much more intensively which will allow me to produce a much more detailed plan. What is more is that I may discover new things about my business, which may encourage or even discourage me from going ahead with my plan. I would also concentrate much more on promotion. And draw a budget for the promotion activities. This is because in my plan I did not look at promotion in too much detail. Therefore next time I would concentrate more on the layout of posters/flyers/leaflets/questionnaires. Finally I would consider researching a lot more about my area where I am going to trade. This is because I have looked at East London in detail but have not researched Hackney in great detail. Overall I believe that my business plan is good enough to obtain loan from a bank. This is because my market research showed me that there is a gap in the market and a good chance of my business succeeding. As mentioned before I do not need a large amount of capital so once again this should make my business proposition to the bank even stronger. The fact that I have not a built up credit rating with the bank may affect my chances of getting a loan. Nevertheless, I can emphasise the fact that my businesses unique and demand levels are high. Finally I believe that I can go on to succeed with my business and possibly expand in the future. Alternatively if my market is declining then I may diversify into another market. ?? ?? ?? ?? 1 ...read more.
