In most urban and suburban markets, people can find Moroccan restaurants. These businesses are very popular in areas that have a substantial number of different cultures living within the area. Even in more rural areas, Moroccan cuisine is becoming more and more popular. As such, these businesses are able to be started relatively quickly and they enjoy relatively modest competition in any major market. There are usually only a handful of Moroccan restaurants in rural or suburban areas. The startup costs associated with the new Moroccan restaurant typically range anywhere from $100,000 to $200,000 which is standard for most types of restaurant businesses. The gross margins from sales typically range around 60% to 80% as a standard with most food and beverage service businesses. In some cases, these gross margins can be substantially higher especially if the Moroccan restaurant allows for sales of alcohol on the premises. In about 50% of Moroccan restaurants, a liquor license is required. It should be noted that a liquor license acquisition can be an expensive process but the return on investment can be substantial. The sales of beer, wine, and cocktails typically carries gross margins of 80% to 90%.

As this is a restaurant business, almost all financial institutions are willing to extend a business loan secured by the furniture, fixtures, and equipment. A Moroccan restaurant business plan should be developed if an entrepreneur is looking to acquire capital from a third-party financial institution such as a bank or credit union. This business plan should feature a three year profit and loss statement, cash flow analysis, balance sheet, breakeven analysis, and business ratios page. The restaurant industry is extremely large, and there are more than 14 million people employed by the industry at any given time. The industry generates an excess of $700 billion a year among more than one million restaurants within the United States.

In addition to outlining the anticipated financial results and industry research associated with the Moroccan restaurant, a thorough demographic analysis should be developed as well. This includes taking a look at the area’s population size, population density, median household income, household net worth, and the percentage of people that eat a meal out on a weekly basis. Most studies show that given the hectic lives of most Americans these days, approximately 30% of meals are eaten at a restaurant or on a take away basis. A competitive analysis should also be included in the same section as a demographic analysis. It is important to not only look at the competition from other Moroccan restaurants with the market, but also to take a look at all types of restaurants.

A Moroccan restaurant SWOT analysis should be produced as well. As it relates to strengths, Moroccan restaurants enjoy very little competition once they are established and they can generate very high gross margins from the sale of both vegetarian cuisine and standard Moroccan fare.

For weaknesses, there are always risks associated with operating a food and beverage business. Foremost, these businesses do have very high operating expenses as it relates to rent and personnel. Inventory spoilage is also an issue for these companies.

For opportunities, one of the ways that Moroccan restaurants can expand their operations is by establishing catering operations in-house. Once retail operations have achieved profitability, some restaurant entrepreneurs will acquire a mobile food truck in order to provide on-site catering. This can be done in addition to establishing additional locations in order to drive further profitability.

The biggest threat base faced by these businesses is a major economic recession. As eating at a restaurant is considered a luxury – a major economic recession can impact the revenues of a Moroccan restaurant.

A Moroccan restaurant marketing plan also needs to be developed in conjunction with the business plan and SWOT analysis. Foremost, most Moroccan restaurants will distribute menus, flyers, and other mailers to a ten mile radius at the onset of operations. This will ensure that people become familiar with the location, but also be able to place orders for take away. Many restaurants also look to have local food review journals and newspapers come to location in order to provide a initial review of the restaurant. If this goes well, the results can be for mom phenomenal from a return on investment standpoint.

A presence online is mandatory for Moroccan restaurant as many people now search for restaurants they want to go to on their mobile phones and computers. A mobile friendly website should be developed in order to ensure that the business can quickly be found on all major search engines. This website should showcase the hours operation, complete menu of the business, whether or not alcohol is served on the premises, and other relevant information. Many restaurants will also establish pages on Yelp, FaceBook, Twitter, and Instagram in order to have people find the restaurant through these third-party portals. Over time, the reviews left by third parties can greatly increase the visibility of the restaurant on an ongoing basis. This is especially important for platforms like FaceBook that allow for reviews on restaurants to be placed on an ongoing basis.

Moroccan food has become a new modern staple of American cuisine. As many people enjoy this type of food, the demand is substantial in most suburban or urban markets. There’s nothing about this industry that is the change moving forward, and an entrepreneur that has an understanding of Moroccan cuisine can establish a highly lucrative small business.
