I am just starting out, and need a little help. I am trying to do financials for business plan and i am not sure how to figure out what expected sales would be. I will be directly across from a high school with 2000 students. The traffic count at the corner light (directly in front of me) was about 17,800 cars per day in 2010. I have cost per drink information, but not sure how to estimate how many of each drink I should anticipate selling each day. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Annette and welcome;
The vehicles going by your front door going or coming from downtown in the morning rush hour or are they going the other direction totally. In other words is your entrance facing east with downtown(or other major employer) being south of your business with that road being north/south? This would be the ideal situation because most people are convenience driven and will not wanna cross traffic to get a cup of coffee. This will dramatically change your numbers, and if it is not this situation I would question whether it is viable or not.

hey wrestling king! I would say around between 5-10 lbs if you are open from 6am-10pm. That is just my experience with observing in the little shop I work at.
