Use the file attached Excel Template – “Sprinkles” as your starting point. Download and use this file as the basis for your assignment. Do not make any changes to this pre-defined template items (this means start with the items that already included and that are expected in the spreadsheet). You may add your information to the existing sheets. You may add extra worksheets as needed as well update the template.

Show your client how these recommendations would affect the bottom line by recreating the pro forma for each scenario, and applying the data analysis to determine profitability.


Start-up costs

You do not have to start from scratch, but note, these are completely independent pro formas. They must update accordingly from the data worksheets.

Plan on showing your analysis and discussing the proforma changes that occur under each new scenario and how it affects profitability.

Use a formatted text box (not a comment) to explain your recommendations under each new pro forma. This will be approximately a 2-3 paragraph endeavor.

Scenario One: “What if” Analysis for adding flavored ice coffees.

Your client is unsure if she should sell flavored ice coffees. She thinks she can sell a coffee to every second customer and it seems to be lucrative because the coffee sells for $3.75 each and costs him only $1.60 to purchase.

Unfortunately your client is afraid that he would cannibalize his soft drink sales with the coffee customers (one soft drink less for every coffee sold). It will cost him $5,250 to purchase the equipment and insurance costs would rise by another $155 per month due to the hot equipment needed to make the coffee.

What is your recommendation: Should your client offer flavored coffee to her customers?

Scenario Two: “What if” Analysis

Your client would like to consider adding ice cream cakes to the list of items available for sale. She is wanting to offer cakes with customized cake, ice cream decorations.

She thinks she can sell 20 small cakes a week and 25 large cakes a week. It seems to be lucrative because the small cake is $16.95 and the large cake is $23.95. Costs are $5.45 per small cake and $7.40 per large cake.

It will cost her $3,250 to purchase the equipment and insurance costs would rise by another $255 per month due to the hot equipment needed to make the cakes.

What is your recommendation? Would it be profitable to sell the cakes?
