Roberts Cafe - MSU Billings

Roberts Cafe - MSU Billings

Roberts Cafe A SWOT analysis by Micah Blair, Emma Braum, Julia Ruddock, Nicole Sayre, and Ed Stafford Strengths The Roberts Cafe is a unique place to get a meal that is both affordable and quality food own recipes signature bread The Roberts Cafe has great service with a friendly staff The decor within the cafe is very different from others western style paint scheme coffee cups that display fun facts about the history of the world Little competition within the city limits

Inside and outside seating Weaknesses The Roberts Cafe has limited seating Tables designed for groups of 2 or 6 The tables were covered with a plastic cover making it feel cheap The Cafs entrance was confusing and not well marked Method of payment Do not accept debit or credit Only local checks The layout of tables felt awkward Small Facebook presence, no website Opportunities 34% of Americans visit casual dining restaurants once a week (Statista)

Lunch most expensive - Americans out for lunch 2x a week, $10 each time, per person (Forbes) Carbon county population 10408 (Census) This includes customers from Red Lodge and Joliet as well as the other surrounding areas. 34% of 10408 = 3538.72 Destination vs. drive-by People who drive by on HWY 212 Approx. 540/day ( This also includes tourists. Which was a 3.2 billion dollar industry in Montana (Tourismmattersmt) Threats The Roberts Cafe has competition in more attractive locations such as Red Lodge

This probably will not include restaurants in Billings, even though billings may be an opportunity Roberts the town is not the final destination for most travelers. During the winter months the traffic through the town most likely dwindles limiting the exposure to potential customers. Competition 16 other restaurants within the county Math Market share - Carbon County Customers 34% of the population eats out once a week (Forbes) 34% * 10408 = 3538 people 3538 * (1/16) = 221 people 221 * $10.00 = $2210.00 per week
