Phase Two, Project Planning
The next part of the project will focus on specific areas of the concept, such as describing the menu, describing functional areas, and determining relevant data for the facilities. You will need to use provided resources for overall project as well as describing specific areas. Necessary files are linked and found under “Resources” on class website navigation menu. These forms should be presented as appendices in your submitted document. Each worksheet will be presented in dedicated appendix, shown in sequence as Appendix A, Appendix B, and so on until complete. Appendices follow the reference list in APA format. Content related to a worksheet should annotate the relevant appendix.
Example: “The design worksheet in appendix A shows that 20% of the total square footage will be used for the bar.”
Facilities design: ACTION PLAN – Facility Design Worksheet
Each functional area: ACTION PLAN – Foodservice Facilities Program Worksheet
The content of the writing will provide an analysis of the data presented as well as justification for decisions or claims being made. The content of the writing will also need to explain decisions made within context of the planning process, such as identifying what needed to be decided first or what decisions affected other aspects of the planning process.
As with phase one, the below elements do not represent the framework or outline of the writing. These are only elements that must be addressed as if presenting to investors or partners.
The project planning analysis will need to include the following elements;
Compile operational data [Use facility design worksheet]
-Your base menu must identify at least five  “signature” entrées that will affect layout or necessary equipment.
-Discuss intended prices for these items.
-Justify prices with a discussion of your food costs.
-Estimate your projected sales and expenses for this
