Where do I find information about income statistics such as; average annual gross/net income of drive thrus, number of customers served per day/week/month/year, traffic counts foot/vehicle, average operating costs, region of country by location, etc.. I am doing the research that so many people do but I have been unable to find this information.
Thank you in advance for any help. :D

The statistics that you are looking for may be hard to obtain. I would suggest looking at your state's stats for the industry, which actually might be lumped in with other business types that are not necessarily representative of your business. Some of the data that you are looking for is going to vary county to county, state to state, even city to city. You may need to do some foot work and go outside of your area and talk with other drive-thru owners to see if they would give you some of their statistics. You should then be able to compile some of these figures yourself to give you an idea of gross/net income, operating costs, average traffic, etc..

Perhaps other people know where this type of information can be found, but I'm not aware of any.

The one single best way you can get this info is by visiting a private shop that may not believe this type of information proprietary. Talk to the owner/manager and she/he should be able to provide you with some info. The info may not be exact, but it will be close. :lol:

Coffee drive thru info...

There are a few sites that have coffee stats and they also sell books that you can buy. They may help you get a feel of the industry but I don't think they will give you the specific info you would need for your Business Plan Financial Assumptions. Steaking out competitors in the area is a good way to go but like the earlier post said, it's not always accurate. My advice would be to do as much research as possible in different independent ways and then take that sense of knowledge to estimate your proforma, break even analysis, cash flow chart, etc. Email or "pm" me for other avenues of getting that info.
