Sales Projections

  • The ice cream shop revenue model will help you forecast your in-store and catering revenue and cost of goods sold (direct food and direct labor costs) for five years by helping you determine expected patron visits and expected spend per customer for ice cream and other menu items. ​When you input your food costs and hourly employee needs, your cost of goods sold will be calculated and updated on the financial statements. The input values will flow directly through into the financial reports

Ice Cream Expenses Model

  • You will be directed to provide your other expenses in the operating expense sheet, which includes some suggested line items for the industry and some default amounts to help you get started. ​This model will feed into the expenses and cash flows on the financial statements for you. You can enter your monthly expenses as either fixed amounts or you can even set them as a percentage for variable costs like credit card processing fees. ​The first three months of the model are broken out separately so that you can account for start-up expenses. 

Ice Cream General Assumptions Tab

  • The general assumptions section will guide you to enter balance sheet items such as fixed assets like refrigerated display cases, ice cream machines, and furniture, as well as loans, investments,cost of goods, and more. The model will have you input some basic data so it can calculate the difficult things on your behalf: loan amortization, interest expense, depreciation expense, inventory purchases, etc. 

Ice Cream Shop Salaries Spreadsheet

  • The salaries sheet will help calculate monthly expenses for payroll, including items like employer taxes and benefits. This model also helps you plan for distributions and owner draws.

Step 3: The model is automatically updated based on your assumptions

Ice Cream Shop Financial Summary

  • The At-A-Glace tab shows you a pro forma snapshot in the form of graphs, charts, ratios, financial summaries - all visualized for easy interpretation and ready to be plugged into a pitch deck. 

Ice Cream Projected Financial Statements

  • There are six pro forma Financial Statement tabs included: the annual formats of the income statement, cash flow statement, and balance sheet, and the month-by-month breakdowns of each as well. 

Investor Friendly Report

  • Our template enables you and all stakeholders to test impact of changing each of the main assumptions of the model by editing any of the input fields or assumptions. This template produces forecast financial statements that will change automatically based upon any assumptions changed. This enables you to test how sensitive your model is to certain variables.
