Conclusion </li></ul><ul><li>10. Table of contents Appendix </li></ul><p> 3. </p> <ul><li>The purpose of this paper is to outline the authors business plan for a new bar which they plan to open in Dublin 2. </li></ul><ul><li>The proposed business is to be called Go Go. The reasoning behind the name partly pays tribute to the famous Hollywood bar, Whiskey Go Go which played a prominent part in the careers of such legendary bands as The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield and </li></ul><ul><li>The Doors.</li></ul><ul><li>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flOvM4Z355A </li></ul><ul><li>We have added a fada to the to incorporate a touch of Irish-ness into the name. </li></ul><p> 4. </p> <ul><li> Go Go will open on Aungier Street in Dublin 2. It is a very central location in the city with Dublin Institute of Technology amongst other colleges all within easy walking distance.</li></ul><ul><li>It is just a short stroll from Stephens Green. The area is easily accessible by bus, DART and Luas and is heavily serviced by taxis. The building itself has a ground floor space as well as 3 upper levels.</li></ul><p> 5. </p> <ul><li>The bar itself will be styled as a 1960s bar. Not so much a themed bar, but it will have a 60s retro style interior and the music played will be from that era with some modern indie music incorporated also.</li></ul><ul><li>The ground floor space is 118 square meters in size. This space could seat 50 people comfortably but the owners plan to have a more casual layout of beer barrel and pod tables with stool seating along with wall sofas.</li></ul><p> 6. </p> <ul><li>The upper levels of the building are all 88 square meters in size and will be open for patrons to consume drinks and listen to music. </li></ul><ul><li>The owners will be serving a Pizza Menu on the ground floor level but patrons will be welcome to move to the 1st floor with their food and drink, where music and comedy nights will take place, the 2nd floor will be used as storage and staff areas. </li></ul><ul><li>The owners plan to use the upper levels of the bar for different themed nights,</li></ul><p> 7. </p> <ul><li>At the moment there are numerous bars operating around the Aungier Street area of Dublin 2, but the authors feel Go Go will definitely add something to the bar trade and give patrons something different, something new and an alternative to the old man pub of which you find a lot around South Dublin City. </li></ul><p> 8. </p> <ul><li>The company as mentioned will be known as Go Go. The four part owners of the business are Ray, Paul, James and Donna.</li></ul><ul><li>Their goal is to open a place that attracts a clientele aged from 18 40 years old. To attract people who are interested in good music and entertainment. Food service does come secondary in the bar. Therefore the owners do not plan to have an extensive menu running from day into night.</li></ul><ul><li>The bar will open &amp; serve alcohol from 10.30am Monday Saturday and from 12pm on Sunday. It will serve until 11.30pm Sunday to Thursday and until 12.30am Friday and Saturday.</li></ul><p> 9. </p> <ul><li>There will be a Pizza menu available from 12.00pm each day up until 10pm each evening. It will be available until 9.30pm on Fridays and Saturdays as the bar would tend to be busier on these particular night. </li></ul><ul><li>The menu itself will offer a choice of two pizza bases along with a choice of 20-25 toppings, sized small (for one person) medium (for 2 people) and large (for 4 people) </li></ul><p> 10. </p> <ul><li>Initial financing </li></ul><ul><li>The initial amount of 110,000 to start up the business came from the investment of the shareholders and in the form of a bank loan. The four shareholders and owners of the business are all committing 15,000 each to the business. The remaining 50,000 was loaned from AIB with a 10 year repayment plan with an interest charged at a fixed 7%. </li></ul><p> 11. Profit &amp;Loss Statement 12. </p> <ul><li>Profit &amp; Loss </li></ul><ul><li>The projected sales revenue of 924,896 minus cost of sales of 721,419 and expenses of 623,674 gives us a projected operating profit of 97,745.</li></ul><ul><li>The majority of our sales stream will be generated through bar sales, with the remaining coming from our pizza only menu. The food operation comes secondary to the business, and is seen as an extra source of revenue for little outlay. We cannot envisage much waste in this department as it is cheap to buy and will be strictly controlled. </li></ul><ul><li>Bar sales are centred around our market research, which revealed 18-24 year olds spend an average of 20 on a night out in Dublin City Centre. This is a very reserved figure, so we are confident it will be achieved. </li></ul><ul><li>The management team are all very experienced in this industry, with a combined 30 years of experience between them and are all dedicated to up-selling and increasing sales revenue within the business.</li></ul><ul><li>They were able to achieve a high mark-up on all products due to previous sales agreements with suppliers in different companies they have worked carried onto their new venture. </li></ul><p> 13.

Include fixtures &amp; fittings such as sofas, chairs, tables and bar equipment.</li></ul><ul><li>This has been purchased from Nisbets Suppliers and from Liquidation sales from flailing business who cannot operate anymore. </li></ul><ul><li>Depreciation for these fixtures and fittings and equipment will be accounted at 20%. </li></ul><ul><li>The long term loan has been recommended to be paid back over a ten year period. </li></ul><p> 19. </p> <ul><li>1. Return on Capital Employed the primary accounting indicator of overall business performance, is 41%. This percentage is satisfactory after one year of trading, and poses no overall risk for shareholders or lenders. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Operating Margin Due to the fact that this was the first year of trading for A Go Go Ltd., there were numerous large financial outlays for the setting up of the business such as furniture, equipment, repairs etc. It is also hoped the market share it possesses and general awareness of the business will be increased in the coming years. </li></ul><ul><li>3. Gross Margin The gross margin is affected by the selling price, a shift from less profitable items to more profitable items, or costs and expenses increasing slower than sales. The company achieved a gross margin of78%, encouraged by up-selling by employees and strict control over budgetary expenses and ordering of stock. </li></ul><ul><li>4. Beverage Sales were a lot higher than Food Sales, as expected. This corresponds with the projected targets. As the company grows, an increase in food sales is expected as costs will be continually decreased to meet demand exactly. </li></ul><ul><li>6. Wages &amp; Salaries are at an appropriate level for the type of business, at an accepted 35%. Strict control carried out by the management and a hands-on approach has helped achieve this.</li></ul><p> 20. </p> <ul><li>The initial goal when opening the bar is not to make the owners hugely wealthy as such.</li></ul><ul><li>It is to run a business that will first off be successful and well-known in the city, and then hopefully start to make enough of a profit so the owners can take home a decent monthly salary from the business.</li></ul><p> 21. </p> <ul><li>At the moment there is not another bar like it in Dublin City.</li></ul><p>No No Camden St, Dublin2 Anseo Yes No South Great Georges St, Dublin 2 Hogans No No South William St, Dublin 2 Pygmalion No No Fownes St, Dublin2 Foggy Dew Yes Yes Suffolk St, Dublin2 ODonoghues Yes No Wellington Quay, Dublin 2 The Workmans Club No No Essex St, Dublin 2 The Garage Bar Yes Yes Harry St, Dublin 2 Bruxelles Live Music Serves Food Location Name 22. </p> <ul><li>At Go Go the owners also plan to host acoustic live music nights midweek, comedy nights and quiz nights. There is also a plan to install a pool table on the 1st level of the bar where patrons can play for fun.</li></ul><p> 23. </p> <ul><li>Obviously at the moment the country is in the middle of a recession but contrary to reports of pubs dying a death and closing down, as pub frequenters themselves the owners feel that if the establishment has a niche, people will still come.</li></ul><ul><li>There are certain bars in Dublin City Centre that are full almost every night as they cater to a particular market. Currently there are 436 pubs in Dublin and 98 of these pubs are situated in the Dublin 2 area. </li></ul><p> 24. </p> <ul><li>As previously mentioned the target market which the owners wish to attract is </li></ul><ul><li>Aged between 18 years &amp; 40 years. </li></ul><ul><li>People who have an interest in music, retro music from 1960s / 1970s and modern indie music.</li></ul><ul><li>Students from local colleges such as DIT Aungier St and Dublin Business School </li></ul><ul><li>Have an interest in comedy nights </li></ul><ul><li>Like to socialise midweek but more at weekends </li></ul><ul><li>Appreciate a good deal i.e. the Pizza Menu </li></ul><ul><li>Are attracted to a cool retro interior </li></ul><ul><li>Laidback and fun crowd </li></ul><p> 25. </p> <ul><li>The type of customer that Go Go wants to attract would more than likely be an avid social networker.</li></ul><p> 26. </p> <ul><li>The colour scheme for Go Go will be orange and black, like the colours seen in the company logo. The walls will be painted white &amp; orange but the tables will be black with orange seating (stools and wall sofas).</li></ul><ul><li>There will also be dark beer barrel tables on each level with stool seating. On each level the walls will be decorated with images of the 1960s. Pictures of The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Twiggy and other iconic images will adorn the walls.</li></ul><p> 27. </p> <ul><li>5.
