Step 2: Enter your assumptions on the input tabs

Bar Sales Forecast Spreadsheet

  • The revenue model will help you predict your bar revenue and cost of goods sold (direct alcohol and direct labor costs) for up to five years by estimating the total capacity of your bar and predicting how capacity utilization will grow over time. From there, the model estimates customer visits and expected spend per customer for drinks for various times of the day. ​When you input your costs and hourly employee needs, your COGS flow through to the pro forma reports. 

Operating Expenses for a Bar

  • The spreadsheet will help you input your overhead expenses in the operating expense tab. This sheet will  include certain industry standard expenses and amounts to give you a solid starting point. ​ You can enter monthly expenses as fixed amounts or as a percentage of sales for expenses like credit card processing. 

Core Assumptions Spreadsheet

  • The general assumptions tab will ask you to add your assets like buildings, furniture and equipment.  It will also allow you to enter in startup loans or investments, food and alcohol inventory assumptions, and A/R and A/P assumptions. Once you enter in these core assumptions the model will do the heavy lifting and difficult calculations for you. 

Bar Salaries Tab

  • The salaries section will help you project the monthly cost of salaried employees, including any taxes and benefits. You will also be able to visualize how much you can take as an owner’s draw each month as well. 

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

Bar Financial Snapshot 

  • The snapshot tab provides key financial information in an at a glance format through various tables, charts and graphs.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I start a small bar business?

A well written business plan is a must for you to begin your bar. Specifically, you need to develop a set of financial projections based on your business plan.  Our Bar financial projection template will help you get your numbers into an easily understandable format for potential investors and lenders. You also need to focus attention on securing a location that can attract your target customers. Lastly, you will need to obtain all required licenses and permits.


How profitable are bars?

According to Investopedia, an average bar can generate around $25,000 in revenue per month. Your individual profit will vary depending on how effectively you can manage your expenses.  Our spreadsheet can help you predict how profitable your specific bar concept might be based on your assumptions.


Why do bars fail?

According to Entrepreneur, there are several key pitfalls you can avoid in order to succeed in your bar business. First, start with enough capital. Second, be very careful of how your initial investment is spent. Third, do not overwork your employees as you will end up paying for it on the backend when you struggle to retain good employees.


How much should a bar make a month?

It would vary greatly depending on your location, product offerings, and how well you are able to operate the bar. You need to run the numbers on your specific bar business plan to determine what your upside profitability might look like as well as your downside risk.  Of course, it is possible to make tens of thousands in monthly profit, but also possible to go bankrupt.  The key is to understand what you need to do to reach profitability.

The cost of the template is estimated at $ 2000

If you hired a CPA to build this template from scratch it would take at least 20 hours of billable time to build a similar template. At an average hourly rate of $100 per hour it would cost you $2,000.
