Restaurant Business Plan Workshop | Saturdays September 9, 16, 23, & 30

  • Savor Strategies 1875 K Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20006 United States (map)

Whether you’re starting a new restaurant or managing an existing one, this four-day interactive workshop provides participants with the structure, resources, and expertise to develop a full-scale business plan over a five-week period. Limited to twelve participants, instructors will highlight the steps and principles of: drafting a written business plan and executive summary; implementing the completed plan as a management tool, and; framing its contents to produce funding solicitations and financial projections. The workshop covers all critical aspects of the restaurant business, including industry overview, operations, sales and marketing, competitive strategy, risk management, HR, service standards, and finance in this cohort-style setting.

This workshop meets for four consecutive Saturdays from 9am to 4pm, beginning September 9.

Lunch and coffee breaks are included in the price, in addition to a one-on-one consult to be scheduled for early October to review the final draft with each participant.

Cost per participant: $850

Early bird registration through July 18: $699

Two participants from the same restaurant - collaborating on the same business plan - are welcome and will receive a 10% refund upon completion of the workshop and their business plan. 

Registration is limited to two participants per restaurant and to twelve participants total.

Registration opens on July 5. To register prior to July 5, please contact our workshop registrar Louis Miller at
