Project Plan


The business in which we intend to franchise as a part of this assignment is Smithfield steakhouse; it is a newly opened fifty seated restaurant, established by a partnership of four individuals who have an interest and a number of years’ experience in the restaurant business. It is highly focused and promises to follow a path of prosperity for its owners, managers and staff. The Smithfield steakhouse restaurant is a comfortable and inviting restaurant designed to make the customers feel at home and welcome. The restaurant aims to reach a break-even point within 12 months of opening and to expand from a 100 to a 150 seated restaurant within 24 months of opening.
