1. Description of the business concept and business

Within the past 30 years the restaurant has become a familiar feature of daily life of

Bengali people through influence of western culture. Inspirational Grounds will provide a

relaxing, with freshly roasted foods, specialty drinks, good books, and music.

Inspirational Grounds is the answer to an increasing demand.

restaurant with a warm, inviting atmosphere. White Castle meets this need and fills this

place. We offer high-quality products in an upscale environment. Furthermore, our high-

profile location in Gulsan provides a mixed customer base that will maintain high levels

of business in every season, at all times of the day, every day of the week.

4. Product/Service Description
The product we are going to serve is food with variety of choices and quick services

along with take away and delivery facility. The facility will keep a watch on the healthy

section of the food so, that it can focus on the target market. Our long time goal is to

establish an outside catering service and make the restaurant as a chain

5. Location
The location of the proposed restaurant is set to be in Gulsan VIP area where all the

offices, business complexes and four shopping malls are situated. It is very important and

busy area of Dhaka city.

6. Decoration
The property will be decorated in a three storied building with setup of seats with

suitability of a full service restaurant. The color will be bright and attractive in order to

achieve customer’s attraction. More emphasize will be given to the top and ground floor

as to meet with the name of the restaurant. The exterior and interior designs will be done

by a professional architect and a logo GER (Golden Eye Restaurant) will be placed with

an extra attention.

7. Customers Profile
The targeted customers of the business are the businessmen, office staffs and the people

who are coming to the shopping malls every day. These businessmen all the time choose
to visit some luxurious restaurants which will include our restaurant as well. On the other

hand, all the office staffs usually like to take their breakfast and lunch very fast which

will be provided by our quick take away and delivery services. Since there are four large

Shopping malls are situated around the proposed restaurant, the people visiting malls will

be the best targeted customers of the restaurant. These people are usually going to eat the

nearest restaurants of the shopping malls.

8. Market Analysis
The checklists below are tailored to the restaurant industry, and will serve as a learning

tool to help me understand many of the market factors that impact my profitability.

* What trends are emerging in the food service industry?

* What are the strengths and weaknesses of my competition?

* Is my location suitable?

* Does my concept fill a niche in the market?

* What is the potential number of customers I can serve

per year?

This analysis can provide valuable information on market conditions to help in

forecasting and budgeting. It would also provide a foundation for an effective marketing

plan can be used to project sales volume for a new restaurant venture. The analysis can

provide essential information required in a business plan or feasibility study. The risks of
a business investment would be lessened by careful analysis of the market. (Keeble, D.,

Bryson, J. and Wood, P. (1992b) ‘The rise and role of small business services in the

United Kingdom’)

9. Competition
In proposed market area, the existing restaurants can provide valuable information to

help analyze demand, market opportunities and weaknesses. There are more than 25

restaurants in my market area which include fine dining, café, fast food, international

cuisines, etc. Pizza Hut Goody’s , Mcdonald’s, KFC are some main competitors who

serve’s our current market segments in the area. All of them are very busy all the day

long including the holidays. However, certain elements should be analyzed regardless of

the type of restaurant we are planning.

10. S W OT Analysis:
Strengths: -
White Castle is the periodical demand for this location and specific customer.

White Castle will maintain exceptional quality that might maximize customer full


Target customers are not far away from business place.

White Castle is central part of the capital so resources are easy to arrange.

Advertise to the different media before opening and even after opening as well.

On going, marketing policy will be much higher than others do.

This will be much more hygienic and clean than others.

Many friends of mine are engaged in different business there and they will carry public

relation to other potential customer.

Weaknesses: -
1. White Castle is completely new business concept.

2. Marketing policy may not affect the customer

3. This restaurant will not attract all levels of customer.

4. Low levels of customer may not come even it is empty.

Opportunities: -
1. If the business goes well I do not have to spend a lot for advertising.

2. Repeat customer will bring more customers through word of mouth.

3. Satisfied customer can bring reputation and loyalty.

4. Ensure employee satisfaction good results customer satisfaction that can make

business more profitable.

Threats: -
Political instability is the biggest issue of threat.

During hartal (strike) period, it has to remain close. If not there is possibility to be


Circumstances of random hartal (strike), no employee and customer will be able to come

out from house that is great damage for business.

Hartal is basically political violence or a demand against government from general people

that started from liberation war. Once it was demand but now political party’s violence.

It has two types of affect good or bad. For business it’s always worse.
