Bar, Lounge & Restaurant Experience

Here are some examples of our experience in the industry:

  • Sports Bar: Developed business plan, financial forecast, investor presentation and related materials for Arena Sports Pub in Bellingham, Washington. The restaurant was capitalized by a $450,000 SBA 7a guaranteed loan.

  • Healthy Vending: Prepared a business plan and financial forecast for YoNaturals. YoNaturals is leading the fight against junk food in vending machines with the most comprehensive, healthy vending program in the nation. "Cayenne gave us the financial and presentation tools that opened the doors to venture capital," said Mark Trotter, President. "Without Cayenne, we would not have been able to raise investment capital."
  • Restaurant Chain: Created a business plan and financial projections for Raw Fusion, a chain of health food restaurants and an online provider ( of health food products. Raw Fusion has developed a proprietary food preparation technology and exclusive cuisine serving enzyme-rich foods that are both delicious and nutritious. Russell Halderman, CEO, remarked that "[consultant] was an invaluable part of the startup process. I felt like he was more a member of the executive management team than a consultant. He really helped us clarify and define our business model."
  • Specialty Foods: Developed a business plan, financial forecast, and investor presentation for importer of premium Greek olive oils, cheeses, and other food products. Played a central role in negotiations that resulted in the infusion of more than $1 million in equity capital and purchase order (PO) financing. The company has secured long-term distribution agreements with several major U.S. mass-market grocery chains.
  • Specialty Beverages: Serve as a long-term strategic and financial advisor to a leading provider of premium specialty beverages packaged in "green" containers. The company's mission is to provide the highest quality beverages to the broadest possible market while addressing three fundamental societal needs: (1) environmental protection; (2) natural resource conservation; and (3) good health. The company currently obtains drinking waters from pristine sources in Scandinavia and the U.S., and distributes them in the most environmentally-friendly packaging available, including fully biodegradable cardboard containers and bottles made from plant resin-derived plastics. The products have been distributed through leading U.S. specialty and gourmet food chains since early 1997, and the company has recently entered the mass-market channel.
  • Restaurant Acquisition: Reviewed the business plan for the successful acquisition of Tom's Depot, a historic neighborhood cafe in Los Altos, California. Continued to provide support during the initial period of operations by the new owners.
  • Snack Foods: Prepared the business plan and financial model of an energy cookie balanced with protein and taste for children.
  • Specialty Beverage Franchise: Worked with a national specialty beverage company to expand nationally via franchising. Developed and revised UFOCs/FDDs and related contracts, and negotiated franchisee leases. Research included business model, industry, competitor and market analyses.
  • Restaurant Franchise: Developed business plan, financial forecast and provided capital formation strategy for a nine-store, build-your-own gyro chain in South Florida, including developing a franchise model.
  • Restaurant Franchise: Business plan for potential Dunkin’ Brands Master Franchisee in Los Angeles as Dunkin re-entered the Southern California market. The business plan was submitted to the franchisor.
