Our guide will allow you to determine where your business is succeeding and where it is lacking, which will ultimately help you make better decisions for your business in the future. 

Let’s breakdown a few of the key metrics that you’ll determine with this guide below…

What Will You Determine From This Guide?

  • Total Income – total revenue from beer, wine, non-alcoholic beverages, retail merchandise, and any other source of revenue.
  • Total Cost of Goods Sold – these are all of the costs that directly and indirectly affect your business. They are an expense to your business as they are later deducted from your gross revenue.
  • Total Expenses – your expenses are costs incurred from daily operations, for example, labor and wages, marketing, utilities and rent, etc. 
  • Net Operating Income – this measures the amount of cash flow that a property has after all expenses have been paid
  • Depreciation – once restaurant equipment is purchased, the value decreases, which is known as depreciation. Restaurant equipment must be updated, renovated, or replaced; this is depreciation.

Now that you’ve discovered the key metrics listed above, you are ready to analyze them to understand your gross profit and net earnings/profit loss.

Gross Profit is determined by subtracting the total cost of goods sold from the total revenue. Once you have figured out what your gross profit is, you will better understand how efficiently your business is in producing your goods and services. 

To figure out whether you are operating at a profit or loss, you will need to subtract your expenses from your revenue. If your total revenue is more than the cost of your expenses, then you are operating at a profit. If your expenses are higher than your revenue, then you are operating at a loss.

Download the guide below and input these key metrics and you will be on your way to analyzing your Profit and Loss Statement. It’s as simple as that!
