Step 2: Enter your assumptions on the input tabs

Ghost Kitchen Revenue Model

  • The sales model will help you predict your cloud kitchen revenue and cost of goods sold (direct food and direct labor costs) for five years by helping you determine expected customer orders and expected spend per customer for food and drinks. ​When you input your food costs and hourly employee needs, your cost of goods sold will be auto-calculated and displayed on the pro forma financial statements. 

Operating Expenses for Cloud Kitchens

  • You will be guided to enter your sales, general and admin expenses in the operating expense tab of the spreadsheet, which includes some suggested line items and amounts specifically for ghost kitchen concepts, to help you get on the right track. ​The spreadsheet will fill in the expenses and cash flows on the projected financial statements for you. You can enter your monthly expenses as either fixed expenses or as a percentage of revenue for variable items like payment processing costs or fees from platforms like DoorDash, UberEats, GrubHub, etc. The first few months of the operating expenses are shown separately so that you can enter startup costs that will not continue indefinitely. 

Cloud Kitchen General Assumptions Sheet

  • The general assumptions tab will allow you to enter assumptions that will impact your projected balances sheet such as loans, fixed assets, inventory, investor and A/R and A/P assumptions. The template just asks for the basic assumptions and then does all of the hard calculations for you like: loan principal and interest amortization, depreciation, inventory purchases, etc. 

Salaries and Owner/Investor Distributions

  • This tab in the spreadsheet helps you calculate the costs for salaried staff, including expenses like employer benefits and taxes. The template also helps you determine a plan that you can afford for distributions made to owners.

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

Cloud Kitchen At-A-Glance Sheet

  • This tab provides a financial summary through various tables, charts and graphs that are ready to be integrated into your pitch deck or business plan.  

Ghost Kitchen Projected Financial Statement

  • The model includes 6 Pro Forma Financial Statements: the annual and the monthly formats of the income statement, cash flow statement, and balance sheet

Cloud Kitchen Investor Friendly Report

  • The ghost kitchen financial model is investor friendly. You can simply share your model with an investor and let them know that they can change any of the assumptions in blue highlighted cells so that they can create their own scenarios as desired. The model provides 5 years of pro forma financial statements in a format that investors will easily understand.

What others have to say about our templates

The cost of the template is estimated at $ 2000
