Introduction

MANAGEMENT REPORT SURREY & HAMPSHIRE RESTAURANT SECTOR MANAGEMENT REPORT SURREY & HAMPSHIRE RESTRAUNT SECTOR EXECUTIVE SUMMARY This report analyses the survey conducted by the Kingston University Small Business Development Unit. The survey was carried out in Surrey and Hampshire, and looked at restaurants in the area. The report states that large sized restaurants dominated the restaurant sector in the area of Surrey and Hampshire. The majority of these can be classified as being in the fast food sector, thus, they are company-owned franchises. This therefore indicates new small business should launch a fast food restaurant as this type of restaurant would be the most profitable market. As the summary measures have shown the business outlook of restaurants within the Surrey and Hampshire areas is bordering unfavourable and this is a damaging environment for new business and therefore they should be wary. However even though the outlook is bleak there is a potential to earn an average gross sales of �100,000 to �140,000. The company-owned restaurants also dominate the sector in Surrey and Hampshire, hence it may be a difficult market for small businesses to break into as company owned restaurants or franchises such as Mc Donald's are very well established with strong brand names and consequently have brand loyalty; this form of business also has large amounts of capital invested in them. Company-owned restaurants dominate the area therefore making it harder for a small business to operate successfully. However, if they were to open a fast food restaurant, or increase expenditure on advertising and promotions they are a lot more likely to be successful MANAGEMENT REPORT SURREY & HAMPSHIRE RESTAURANT SECTOR CONTENTS PAGE INTRODUCTION ..............................................................................
