If you are planning in opening a restaurant, one of the first things you need to calculate is your break even point. Why? Because the break even point will tell you the number of customers you have to serve monthly to make profit.
Frankly, predicting the exact number of customers you will have to serve in order to open a profitable restaurant is difficult, because some customers spend more, others less, food costs vary from dish to dish, etc... But you must agree with me that it is a very important number when you plan on opening a restaurant. The best and easiest way to know this number that will bring your restaurant from making a loss to making profit is with the break even analysis, and this video will explain you in detail how you can calculate it with one example.
