Fast Food Franchise - Financial Model

This financial model is tailored to evaluate the feasibility of a Fast Food Franchise

The Franchise Fast Food Excel Financial Model is tailored to evaluate the feasibility of a Fast Food Franchise, and will give you full visibility into how you can expect your restaurant to perform.

The model is detailed, robust, and user-friendly (with only 5 sheets). The financial projections are based on several key assumptions such as the number of customers served, the average price and direct costs for different menus, as well as the percentage of customers ordering off-menu items.

Regarding the costs, the model takes into account the specifics of a franchise model, such as the existence of initials and ongoing franchise fees.

Additionally, the model allows the user to develop scenarios based on the variation of key metrics, such as the number of visits, selling prices, and operational costs variation.

The user only needs to input information into the cells formatted in the dark blue font in the input sheet, any other formats are formulas or labels.

For demonstration purposes, the template is provided with information from a hypothetical business model for a Fast Food Franchise. The data must be deleted/adjusted to fit the user's needs.

Model Structure:


The revenue is projected using an easy-to-follow logic (No of Customer Served x Avg Price per Menu + % of Customers Ordering Off-Menu Items x Avg Prices).
