Adelaide's Best Culinary Experience!
Emma has recently taken over her family’s restaurant business and has big plans to move the restaurant in a new direction and modernize the business. Emma’s aim is to create a dining space that is sophisticated and modern without being snobby. She wants dinners to have a truly memorable experience and try the best of what Adelaide and South Australia has to offer by highlighting local produce!
A recent trend at some of the world’s top restaurants is degustation–only dining.
"Degustation is a culinary term meaning "a careful, appreciative tasting of various foods" and focusing on the senses, high culinary art and good company."
Degustation involves sampling small portions of all of a chef's signature dishes in one sitting. Usually consisting of four to eight courses, it may be accompanied by a matching wine degustation which complements each dish. It allows head chefs to showcase their signature dishes and techniques.
After visiting a number of successful
degustationonly restaurants in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, Emma believes there is a market for this type of restaurant in Adelaide. South Australia’s position as a producer of premium food and wine is recognised and valued locally throughout Australia and around the world. Emma plans to capitalise on this reputation in her marketing campaign for the rebranded restaurant.
Can Emma’s idea of opening a
degustation–only restaurant in Adelaide become a successful and profitable business? You have been approached for advice given your expertise and so you proceed with preparing a report that will include your analysis and recommendations.
Perform the quantitative analyses requested in this document and prepare a business report for Emma in which you describe your findings and make appropriate recommendations. To avoid loss of marks, include FULL details of your working out in the Appendix only – the report body should only report the results of the calculations, not the calculations themselves.

Include full details of your working out in this appendix.
Which are the better loan terms?
After obtaining a quote for renovations, Emma requires $75,000 to refurbish the family’s restaurant, which is to become the stylish and modern dining space she visualizes for her degustation – only restaurant.
Emma is considering taking an 8year loan for the required amount and has enquired at her local Bank and Credit Union regarding loan options.
The local Bank charges 6.75% per year compounded monthly and require monthly payments.
Use the
Week 3 Amortisation EXCEL spreadsheet on the
Lecture Notes page of the course website and adapt it for your needs to answer the following:
(a)
(2 marks) Use EXCEL to calculate the monthly repayments that Emma would have to make on this loan.
(b)
(8 marks) Use EXCEL to set up an
Amortisation Schedule for the loan. Include your completed EXCEL amortisation schedule in Appendix 1.
For full marks, show the calculations for
i and
n in adjacent cells (you can type these). Label each item in column A, rows 15 with your initials and label each Amortisation column (
Payment Number, Opening Balance,…, Closing Balance) with
your initials.
Hint: Use formulae to compute the repayment size and to populate each value in the amortisation schedule (i.e. columns Opening Balance through to Closing Balance), otherwise the repayments
will not balance to 0.
(c)
(2 marks) Use your amortisation schedule from part (b) to calculate the total interest and the total amount paid over the life of the loan. Show your calculations for this amount using an appropriate Excel formula.
(d)
(2 marks) Use EXCEL to produce a graph showing the repayments from (a) over time. In the graph, each repayment should be split into two parts indicating how much of the repayment will go towards interest and how much will go towards paying off the principal.
Include a copy of your EXCEL graph in Appendix 1.
EXCEL Instructions: for full marks, make sure that your graph has been labelled appropriately (title, axis labels, legend) and that
your chart title includes your network ID. The vertical axis should be set to a maximum height corresponding to the repayment size rounded up to the nearest $10.00 and the minimum value of the vertical axis should be 0.
Refer to Topic 3 in the green
EXCEL Booklet for further instructions on graphing in EXCEL.
The Credit Union charges the same interest as the Bank, 6.75% per year compounded monthly and requires monthly payments. The Credit Union has also offered Emma a
oneyear interestonly option with her eightyear loan. This means that for the first year, every month Emma would pay only interest on the amount borrowed. Loan repayments consisting of both interest and principal would then commence in year two and continue until the end of the 8year term.
(e)
(2 marks) Use EXCEL to calculate the monthly repayment that Emma would have to make starting in year two, assuming 7year amortisation.
(f)
(8 marks) Use EXCEL to set up an
Amortisation Schedule for the loan with the oneyear interestonly option. Include your completed amortisation schedule in Appendix 1.
EXCEL Instructions: Start with the amortisation schedule from part (b) and modify it appropriately to account for the interestonly period. Be sure to add
your initials to all column names.
Use formulas, do not simply type in values!
(g)
(2 marks) Use your amortisation schedule from part (f) to calculate the total interest and the total amount paid on the loan with the oneyear interestonly option.

Include full details of your working out in this appendix.
Is ‘simple credit’ a good option to finance the proposed Chef’s table?
After looking over the initial architect drawings for the restaurant renovations Emma realized that there was an unused store room next to the kitchen that could be converted to allow for a Chef’s table.
A Chef’s table is is an elegant and private space that overlooks the restaurant’s kitchen. This offers guests an exclusive inkitchen dining experience of exactly what’s happening in the kitchen and guests can enjoy direct contact with the head Chef.
Emma believes this would be another marketing gem for her rebranded business  to give her guests a truly memorable dining experience!
To finance the Chef’s table, an additional $8,000 is needed to convert the store room to a private dining space overlooking the kitchen.
A local moneylender is advertising ‘simple credit on simple terms’ shortterm personal loans for up to $10,000 and you can apply online. Under the terms of the current promotion, the moneylender charges a fee of $7.50 per month for every $500 borrowed, without any additional fees to be paid. The monthly repayments are determined as follows:
Suppose that Emma borrows the amount she needs to refurbish the store room from the moneylender for one year on the currently advertised terms. Use Excel to calculate the APR (interest rate per year compounded monthly) implied by the terms offered by the moneylender. You will need to first calculate and then set the present value of monthly repayments to $8,000.
EXCEL Instructions:
Prepare an EXCEL spreadsheet like the one shown below (only figures are shown others, you will have to work out the rest). Make sure that your column names
include your initials.
Now use GoalSeek (
Data à
Data Tools à
Whatif Analysis in EXCEL 2007, EXCEL 2010 and EXCEL 2013 or
Tools à
GoalSeek in EXCEL 2003) to find the
APR implied in the moneylending loan terms:

Which is the better broadband internet plan for Emma’s business?
Another decision facing Emma is to select a suitable internet plan for her business. Emma plans to use Social Media to promote the rebranded restaurant, sourcing local produce from around South Australia, online purchasing of ingredients and running a dynamic website for her business including online bookings! She is considering two options.
The Prepaid data plan costs $69.90
per month plus an additional $99 setup fee. If Emma uses more than 160 gigabytes (GB)
per month, she will be charged 50 cents per extra 1 GB over the 160 GB limit.
The Broadband Contract costs $49.90
per month with no activation fee. However, Emma will be charged $1.25 per 1 GB for any data usage above the 100 GB
monthly allocation.
At how many gigabytes
per month is the cost of the two options the same?
Answer this question algebraically and illustrate it using an EXCEL graph.
Include a copy of your EXCEL graph in Appendix 3. On your graph, identify the region corresponding to the prepaid plan being preferred and the region corresponding to the contract plan being preferred over a one month period.
EXCEL Instructions: Create a column called
Data Usage and in that column enter values from 0 to 400 in increments of 20. Then create two more columns, one for
Prepaid Plan and another for
Contract. Enter appropriate formulae in EXCEL to obtain the cost of each plan corresponding to each value in the
Data Usage column. Highlight the resulting three sets of numbers and go to

Will Emma’s degustation–only restaurant Break Even?
An important component of your report will be to demonstrate how many customers are required each fortnight in order to breakeven on costs associated with running the business.
Emma estimates her fixed costs to be around $17,000 for the fortnight, including wages for the kitchen and service staff, insurance and utilities.
Variable costs, including all local produce for the degustation menu and matching wines, are expected at $65 per person. The price for the dinner degustation menu has been set at $150 per dining guest.
(a)
(9 marks) What is the breakeven number of dining customers (excluding the Chef’s table) per fortnight? What is the corresponding breakeven revenue per fortnight? Find the breakeven point using appropriate formulas and then illustrate it using an EXCEL graph. In Appendix 4, present appropriate calculations plus a copy of your EXCEL graph. In addition, indicate on your graph the region corresponding to profits and the region corresponding to losses.
EXCEL Instructions to produce a breakeven graph: Create a column called
Number of dining customers and in that column enter values from 0 to 350 in increments of 25. Then create two more columns, one for
Total Cost and another for
Total Revenue. Enter appropriate formulae in EXCEL to obtain the total cost and total revenue corresponding to each value in the
Number of units column. Highlight the resulting three sets of numbers and go to
Insert à
Charts à
Scatter to obtain a graph. Make sure that your graph has been labelled appropriately (i.e. title, axis labels, legend) and that
your chart title includes your network ID. Refer to Topic 3 in the
EXCEL Booklet for further instructions on entering formulae and graphing in EXCEL.
(b)
(6 marks) For guests dining at the Chef’s table, there is an additional charge of $80 per person for the exclusive inkitchen dining experience and premium menu. The additional variable costs for the Chef’s table menu are estimated at $30 per guest. If 15% of customers are expected to dine at the Chef’s table, what is the new breakeven number of dining customers per fortnight? In Appendix 4, present appropriate calculations to justify your answer. Type them in Work or use EXCEL. A new breakeven graph is
not required.
