Feasibility study for a cafe at Rushcliffe Country Park

Country park cafe business plan consultantClient: Rushcliffe Borough Council
Rushcliffe Country Park is a popular and established country park to the south of Nottingham. Our work focussed on carrying out a feasibility study to assess the opportunity to extend the existing visitor centre to accommodate an exemplar eco-cafe.

Our work included: analysing the market and competitive landscape; consultation with officers and The Friends Group; carrying out a module of primary research which generated more than 1,000 responses to an online survey; identifying sources of capital investment funding; liaising with design team on existing design proposals; advising on the optimum size of café/kitchen, menu development and service delivery; recommending an operating model for the cafe, setting out the pros and cons associated with each operating model and preparing a trading profile and staffing model for the preferred development scenario.
