BTO expansion would allow the business to benefit from wide range economies of scale, such as the purchasing one, that includes lower costs of purchasing supplies due to greater scale of orders, financial ones, that result from banks being more willing to borrow money to larger, more creditworthy businesses and marketing ones. Ben already invested in social media marketing, so if the business expended one social media website could automatically advertise all of them. What is more enlargement from one to three restaurants will possibly mean greater sales revenue due to a greater amount of customers, which if managed properly can be converted into higher gross profit. The higher profit could be later retained into the business and used as an internal source of finance, which could be spent on better equipment such as cookers, pans or fridges. However, it is important to mention that opening two more restaurants would certainly mean higher costs, either the direct ones, so more raw materials needed to prepare vegan food or indirect costs like electricity or rent. The cost of labour would increase as well Additionally, the grater scale of BTO operation would make it di cult for Ben to develop close relationship with employees.

Overall, the decision to expand should be based on a comprehensive analysis of the potential benefits and drawbacks, taking into account the financial resources, managerial capabilities, and market conditions. With proper planning and e ff ective management, the expansion has the potential to lead to business growth and increased profitability. - decision tree - depreciacion - how to manage the change - Change management 2
