Clair de Lune Restaurant Proposal


Published on

Keep a portable radio with extra batteries, first-aid kit(s) and drinking water onhand in case of emergency situations.Designate safe areas to take cover. In cases of tornados and other natural disasters, know the safe places to takecover in your restaurant. These are typically in restrooms, basements, or in areas with no windows.Store food high off the ground. Store food inventory on shelves high enough to keep it safe from contaminated waterin case the restaurant floods.Claire De Lune Cafe Inc. So. Coast Hwy, Laguna Beach, CA 92651
  6. 6. What to Do in a Weather Emergency or Natural Disaster:Although much less frequent, natural disasters like hurricanes, tornados and earthquakes do occur and can devastateany building, including a restaurant.Flood threat:• Heed warnings and evacuate dangerous areas as soon as possible.• Advise all patrons of any severe weather warning.• In the event of a flash flood, take care of customers and employee safety first. Evacuate the building and move to higher ground when possible.• You may need to close the restaurant until you can safely return and repair any damages.After the flood:• Assess any structural damage to the restaurant.• Discard any food that is not in a watertight container, or may have come into contact with contaminated water.• Discard wooden and plastic utensils and kitchen supplies.• Sanitize metal and ceramic dishes and utensils by boiling them in clean water.• Thoroughly wash all equipment and surfaces.• You may want an inspector to clear your restaurant for reopening.Ice or snow storm threat:• Be aware of any severe weather warnings for your area, and keep an eye on weather activity outside.• Advise all patrons of any severe weather warning.• Consider closing the restaurant when road conditions, visibility, or safety are compromised.• If a power outage occurs and food cooling equipment fails, do not place perishable food out in the snow. Outside temperatures can vary, and food may be exposed to unsanitary conditions. Follow power outage guidelines when possible.Hurricane threat:• Be aware of any severe weather warnings for your area.• Take care of patron and employee safety first. Help patrons to stay calm. Advise all patrons of the severe weather warning.• Heed any evacuation recommendations from officials in the area.• Evacuate the restaurant—and your area, if necessary—in the case of a hurricane threat.• If no evacuation recommendations are provided, direct guests to stay inside the building and away from windows.After the hurricane:• Emergency response personnel can help with damage assessment.Claire De Lune Cafe Inc. So. Coast Hwy, Laguna Beach, CA 92651
  7. 7. • Hurricanes can cause serious flooding, so be prepared for flood damagesTornado threat:• Be aware that tornados and severe thunderstorms are a possibility.• Alert employees and patrons of the potential danger.• Monitor the situation and take further action if the tornado watch becomes a warning.When a tornado warning occurs:• Alert employees and patrons of the tornado warning.• Advise patrons to stay inside the building and seek shelter immediately in a place without windows, such as a basement, restroom, or hallway area where there is no danger of anything falling from above.• Help patrons to stay calm.Earthquake:• Earthquakes rarely offer signs before they occur. If an earthquake occurs while patrons are dining in your restaurant, advise them to seek shelter immediately. The best thing to do it drop to the floor and crawl under a table or other study fixture.• Try to find the most stable places in the restaurant away from windows and falling objects.• Stay indoors until the shaking stops, and exit when you are sure it is safe.After the earthquake:• Check yourself, your employees and your patrons for injuries.• Administer first-aid to anyone in need.• Turn off the gas if you think it may be leaking.• Listen to a radio or any emergency officials for more information.Service’s Restaurant Repairs and Maintenance Services Include:  Commercial Refrigeration Repair  Heating and cooling  Restaurant remodeling, from minor remodeling to major restaurant renovations and ground-up construction  Plumbing repairs (sinks, disposals, restrooms, toilets, etc.)  Drain repairs and unclogging  Exterior: roofs, landscaping, parking lots, graffiti removal, etc.  Plate glass repair and replacement  Restaurant fixture and furniture repairClaire De Lune Cafe Inc.

  17. 17. Personnel Mana$ment:Hiring Procedure for Employment1. Recruiting Requisition- • The Recruiting Requisition is used to identify an open position (regular, full, or part-time) and to initiate the recruitment process. • The Hiring Manager completes the "Recruiting Requisition” form using the online Interview Ap- plicant Tracking system. Appropriate approver "signatures" will be obtained electronically within Interview Exchange. The Requisition in Interview Exchange includes uploading a current job description. For assistance accessing and using Interview Exchange contact the HR Employ- ment Manager.2. Search Questionnaire - • The Employment Manager will gather information about the open position from the online Re- cruiting Requisition which is part of the Interview Applicant Tracking system. • Each job search may be customized according to the needs of the department. This should also help the Employment Manager to be more effective with assisting the hiring manager, and in communicating with applicants. The process includes a review of the job description; determining who will be the key contact for applicants and interview candidates; who will perform the screen- ing for skill fit, interviewing, applicable testing etc.3. Budget Verification- • Once the Recruiting Requisition is received, the Employment Manager will request Budget Veri- fication from the Finance Office. • No posting or advertising will occur until the required funding for salary and fringe benefit is verified. Funds must be available for the remainder of the year and on a permanent basis • After funding verification, our Employment Manager will begin the hiring process.4. Posting and Advertising- • The Office of Human Resources must post all regular, full and part time staff positions for a minimum of two weeks. Posting sources are included on the website that it is located. All other additional and outside advertising expenses, i.e., Seattle Times, Craigs List, Inside Higher Ed., professional journals, Internet sites, etc., are paid by the department but must be coordinated with the Office of Human Resources. • Presidents Office funds will cover the national advertisement for director level and above posi- tions, subject to pre-approval on the Recruiting Requisition. • All advertisements and postings will direct potential candidates to contact the business for appli- cation materials and instruct them to return completed materials to the hiring office.Claire De Lune Cafe Inc. So. Coast Hwy, Laguna Beach, CA 92651
  18. 18. 5. Applicant Screening- • Positions posted online through the Interview Exchange Applicant Tracking system will allow interested applicants to review job requirements and apply online. These online Applications may be viewed by Human Resources, by the hiring manager, and by any approved search committee members. The system will retain and record all original application materials, allow online review of all applications by hiring managers, allow input from search committee members, and allow interaction with applicants by the hiring manager. • The employment manager will communicate the results of the interview with the hiring manager. • Candidates who were interviewed by the hiring manager but not selected must be notified by the hiring manager either by phone or by letter.6. References- • Before offering a position to any candidate, a minimum of two references must be checked by the hiring manager.7. Recruiting Expenses- • The hiring manager may work with the Presidents office to obtain funding for reimbursement of travel expenses (for the interview process) when the open position is at or above a director level. Expenses may include airfare, vehicle mileage, and lodging. Use of these funds must be pre- approved by the Vice President for Administration and University Relations. • Meal expenses for the interview process are to be funded by the hiring department. • When making travel, hotel and car arrangements for out-of-town candidates will notify the candi- date.Offer of Employment (Written) • Formal offers of employment are made in writing by using a standard offer letter. An offer letter is not a contract. • The offer letter is the prospective employees official notification of the appointment. The em- ployee must sign and return the offer letter to hiring office along with a signed copy of the Staff Handbook Receipt and Acknowledgment form as formal acceptance of the offer, no later than the first day of employment. • The offer letter will be followed by a notification and instructions for completing a Background Check. The offer of employment is contingent upon satisfactory results from the background check. • Any questions regarding benefits must be directed to the Hiring office.Claire De Lune Cafe Inc. So. Coast Hwy, Laguna Beach, CA 92651
  19. 19. Processing the Personnel Action Form (PAF) to initiate the Hire - • Once the hiring manager selects the final candidate but before the employees first day of work, a PAF must be completed including the appropriate signatures. The completed PAF form must be received by HR before the employee starts work. • The hiring manager will immediately process the PAF insuring that it is routed through the Fi- nance office and Payroll department. • Copies of the PAF are sent to the department head/dean and area Vice President. Employees do not receive a copy of the PAF. • After the final salary and start date have been confirmed by the hiring manager, the signed PAF is then returned to HR where budget and pay details are checked and data entered into the payroll system. • If hiring requires additional budget, or budget changes, a completed budget transfer must be at- tached to the PAF. Salaries and Benefits:Wages and benefits vary slightly from restaurant to restaurant, even for the same position. If youare a manager hiring people for the first time, or simply assessing wages in order to makechanges to your current payroll, check out the average national statistics.Median Wages for Restaurant Employees-Restaurant worker wages are different depending on the type of restaurant, the geographical lo-cation, and the worker responsibilities. The chart below illustrates several restaurant workersaverage hourly and annual wages, as well as the highest and lowest percentile wage estimates forthe jobs, according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistic.Minimum Wage-Minimum wage is the lowest rate businesses can legally pay their employees. In the restaurantindustry, employees salaries are often determined by assessing the national minimum wage andraising it accordingly. As of July 24, 2008, the minimum wage is $6.55 per hour. Minimumwages increase every year.Tips-Tips are considered a benefit of working in a restaurant, but many servers and bartenders would mostlikely consider it part of their income. These restaurant workers usually work for a pay rate of less thanminimum wage, but take home a good deal more based on their tip income. Tips are sometimes distrib-uted among kitchen staff and bussers as well. Unlike other restaurant benefits, tips are given by guests,not restaurant owners.Claire De Lune Cafe Inc. So. Coast Hwy, Laguna Beach, CA 92651
  20. 20. Meal Benefits-Restaurants often offer daily employee meal benefits to their workers. These usually involve one dis-counted or free meal from the restaurant menu per employee per shift. However, each restaurant meal pol-icy is different, depending on corporate rules, food type and budget.Restaurant managers may receive a certain number of paid sick days and vacation days, depending on therestaurants policies. Hourly workers typically need to request time off in advance and do not get paid forvacation days or sick days.Insurance-Restaurant managers and other supervising positions are often entitled to insurance benefits in the restau-rant. Sometimes these benefits are even extended to hourly workers, but this depends on the company.Insurance benefits typically include the following:• Medical• Dental• Vision• Life• Disability401K-A 401K is a tax-deferred retirement savings investment plan sponsored by an employer. Employees whoare offered a 401K plan transfer a portion of their income to the 401K account each month and plan towithdraw it after retirement. Much like insurance, 401K plans are not offered by all employers, and whenthey are, they are mainly offered to managers and assistant managers. Since many restaurant workers areyouths who may not be fulfilling their careers in the restaurant, 401K benefits are not quite as commonfor these hourly workers.Claire De Lune Cafe Inc. So.

  22. 22. Fun%ng for Business:We plan to apply for a business loan. These are the requirements for applying for receiving a loan.Documentation Needed for Small Business Loan ApplicationsWhile every loan program has specific forms you need to fill out and documents you need to submit, youwill likely need to submit much of the same information for different loan packages. Before you start ap-plying for loans, you should get some basic documentation together. The following are typical items thatwill be required for any small business loan application: • Personal Background: Either as part of the loan application or as a separate document, you will probably be asked to provide some personal background information, including previous ad- dresses, names used, criminal record, educational background, etc. • Resumes: Some lenders require evidence of management or business experience, particularly for loans that are intended to be used to start a new business. • Business Plan: All loan programs require a sound business plan to be submitted with the loan application. The business plan should include a complete set of projected financial statements, including profit and loss, cash flow and a balance sheet. • Personal Credit Report: Your lender will obtain your personal credit report as part of the appli- cation process. However, you should obtain a credit report from all three major consumer credit rating agencies before submitting a loan application to the lender. Inaccuracies and blemishes on your credit report can hurt your chances of getting a loan approved. It’s critical you try to clear these up before beginning the application process. • Business Credit Report: If you are already in business, you should be prepared to submit a credit report for your business. As with the personal credit report, it is important to review your business’ credit report before beginning the application process. • Income Tax Returns: Most loan programs require applicants to submit personal and business income tax returns for the previous 3 years.Claire De Lune Cafe Inc. So. Coast Hwy, Laguna Beach, CA 92651
  23. 23. • Financial Statements: Many loan programs require owners with more than a 20 percent stake in your business to submit signed personal financial statements. You may also be required to provide projected financial statements either as part of, or separate from, your business plan. It is a good idea to have these prepared and ready in case a program for which you are applying requires these documents to be submitted individually. • Bank Statements: Many loan programs require one year of personal and business bank state- ments to be submitted as part of a loan package. • Collateral: Collateral requirements vary greatly. Some loan programs do not require collateral. Loans involving higher risk factors for default require substantial collateral. Strong business plans and financial statements can help you avoid putting up collateral. In any case, it is a good idea to prepare a collateral document that describes cost/value of personal or business property that will be used to secure a loan. • Legal Documents: Depending on a loan’s specific requirements, your lender may require you to submit one or more legal documents. Make sure you have the following items in order, if appli- cable: o Business licenses and registrations required for you to conduct business o Articles of Incorporation o Copies of contracts you have with any third parties o Franchise agreements o Commercial leasesClaire De Lune Cafe Inc. So. Coast Hwy, Laguna Beach, CA 92651
  24. 24. Bud$t:Our main concerns will be aggressive time management, so that our labor costs stay undercontrol, and proper purchasing, prep and food handling to keep food costs down, as well asmanaging the higher costs of meats and seafoods. Secondarily, hiring the best grill and broilercooks, training them properly and retaining them will be a critical component to good meat andseafood costs. A good grill cook does not waste steaks by burning them, nor does he angercustomers by undercooking them.We are seeking $900,000, and will seek it from one, two, or three investment groups. We preferthis approach as an early stage company because there is no set repayment schedule or debtservice payments the investors profit when the company profits. Initially, the company is pro-jected as a Limited Partnership, but may switch the preferred structure to a stock Corporationor Limited Liability Corporation. The preparation of the investment documents will be han-dled in a cooperative effort by the legal firms representing each party individually. These docu-ments will include, but are not limited to:-Private Placement Memorandum-Form D SEC Filing-Subscription Agreement-Promissory NoteClaire De Lune Cafe Inc. So.

  28. 28. Laws, Regulations, and Codes:Health Codes:• Employee Hygiene. Employees must be well groomed and in good health to handle food. If an employee is sick, you must send them home or assign them tasks that do not put them in contact with prepared foods.• Restaurant Inspections. Before a new restaurant opens, it must pass an initial health inspection. After they are open, restaurants are usually inspected twice a year. If a restaurant has a number of violations, it can be shut down to make corrections and get re-inspected.• Facilities and Surfaces Cleaning. Local health codes stipulate what cleaners and sanitizers are acceptable for restaurants to use. The codes also specify how frequently equipment and food con- tact surfaces should be cleaned. For example: a pan that is used to carry raw meat to the grill must be cleaned and sanitized before any prepared foods can be placed in it, to prevent raw meat juices from contaminating the prepared product.• Food Handling, Storage and Preparation. From the moment food supplies enter your establish- ment, you are responsible for them. There are specific health codes for handling, storage and preparation of food. For example: many health departments forbid employees from touching pre- pared, ready-to-eat foods with their hands. Employees must use disposable gloves instead.• Equipment and Supplies. County health departments often have very specific standards for three- compartment sinks. In general, most health departments require a specific slope to the drain boards. Slope means that the drainboards are pitched or tilted towards the bowls, so water will drain into the sink instead of pool on the drainboard. Local departments will also require the drainboards to be at least as wide and long as the sink bowls. If you are looking at a sink with 18” x 18” (L x W) bowls, the drainboards must be at least 18” square. Other pieces of equipment may have strict regulations as well.There are several government and non-profit organizations that oversee the United States food supply andtest and develop safety standards for commercial kitchen equipment.• Food and Drug Administration. The FDA ensures the safety of all food products (excluding meat and poultry) and the bottle water supply. The FDA also publishes the Food Code, which state and county health departments use to create their health policies.• United States Department of Agriculture. The USDA oversees the safety of America’s meat, poul- try and egg products.• Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Whenever there is a large food poisoning outbreak, the CDC works with local health agencies to trace the cause.Claire De Lune Cafe Inc. So. Coast Hwy, Laguna Beach, CA 92651
  29. 29. • National Sanitation Foundation. Food service equipment that bears the NSF mark has undergone rigorous testing and adheres to the National Sanitation Foundation’s standards for safety and cle- anability.• Underwriter’s Laboratories. The Underwriter’s Laboratories tests electrical equipment to assure that it meets current safety codes.• Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The Occupational Safety and Health Administra- tion (OSHA) also has specific standards in place to protect restaurant employees from physical harm. For example, restaurants must have Class K fire extinguishers near all cooking equipment, in case of fire.Insurance on our Restaurant:• Property Insurance- – Protects your property in case of fire or other events. It may not cover natural dis-asters, such as floods or earthquakes (see below for a policy that does.)

It helps protect you if a customer has too much to drink and drives and hurtsthemselves or someone else.• Automobile Liability – If you have a company vehicle, this is a good insurance to have. It may be cov-ered in your general liability, but always check with your insurance agent first.• Workers Compensation– Protects you if an employee is hurt at work.

It is also a good idea to have life insurance, in case something does happento you and your family isn’t left with a restaurant they don’t know how to run and bills they can’t pay.There is insurance for just about any object, action or person out there. Here are some other types of in-surance you can purchase for your restaurant. But keep in mind, these extras will cost you as much ormore than whatever it is you are insuring.• Loss of Business Insurance – If you lose sales through a specific cause, this type of policy can recoupsome of the income. Keep in mind the premiums and deductible may make you break even, depending onClaire De Lune Cafe Inc. So. Coast Hwy, Laguna Beach, CA 92651
