What You'll Learn

Who the Hell am I?

Hello, I am Dave Allred, your humble host and instructor for Restaurant Start-Up Secrets. I’ve been in bar & restaurant industry for 30+ years and worked as a server, bartender, manager and consultant. In 2011 I started my own business called Bar Patrol which helps owners and managers manage their inventory & ordering, saving them $1,000’s per month. In addition, I just started my 2nd business called Order Patrol which allows guests to order and pay directly from their table so they don’t have to wait for their server. The point to all this? I’ve been in the bar & restaurant trenches for years and I also know how to start and run businesses. I love helping owners and managers succeed, which is why I created this course for you.

What's Included in the Course?

This restaurant business plan course includes 25 lessons of both text and video and guides you through like a road map, from beginning to end. It is a step-by-step system that will show you exactly how to launch a mega-successful bar/restaurant and how to project the start-up costs, revenue and expenses you’ll be managing.

This is where we meet each other and I tell you why you’re crazy to open a restaurant and go after your dreams. Shame on you for going after your dreams. Then I come to my senses and tell you how to do it.


In this section of the course we will talk about who this business plan is for (hint: it’s not just for investors), how to get your big idea off the ground, choosing the perfect location and your roadmap to success blueprint.


You might have no idea exactly what you need financially in order to get your restaurant off the ground. That’s what I’m here for. In this section we focus on buying vs. leasing and the cost to build, your capital budget, ongoing expenses and where to buy restaurant equipment and furniture.


In this section of the course I will break the business plan down step-by-step so you can create your business plan as you walk through the lessons. We will go over the executive summary, your concept, company overview, the market, the strategy, operations and more. This section of the course also includes a video lesson on how to use and fill out the Master Start-Up Financial Template.


In this section I provide bonus material on how to find the right POS system, as well as the right inventory system, how to research demographics, employee scheduling software, and creating QR menu codes for contactless ordering for your guests.

At this point, you have 3 options...

OPTION 1: Go it alone and figure it out on your own. Some action is better than no action, but it will take you more time, you’ll make a lot of mistakes and your chances for success will drop dramatically.

 OPTION 2: Do nothing. This is what the average person does. It won’t get your very far in life, but it is an option.
OPTION 3: Use the exact same business plan and playbook other bars & restaurants have used to launch their business and succeed. That means don’t just think about it. Don’t just say “Yeah, that sounds like a good idea.” But actually take this thing out in the real world and make something happen. Get unstuck.
Which one of these 3 options can you see yourself doing? Of course, doing nothing is safe, but it’s also going to get you the exact same results you’re getting right now, and is that what you want?
