Planning focuses on developing a shared vision, mission and common objectives and identifying actions to actualize the plan (Bogáth, 2017, p. 10).   The action plan delineates actions to be taken to implementing the planned activities to ensure the restaurant is a success and results the expected results are measured during evaluation (Wolf and Floyd, 2017, p. 1760).    Establishing the goals and objectives, planning will focus on what is to be achieved in the short, medium, and long-term.

The planned activities will include evaluating progress based on the actual and reported results, and success depends on identifying the right people to meet the goals and objectives.
