Roughly, this would mean that this area comprises a total restoration market in excess of $2.0 million annually. The company's goal is to a acquire a comfortable minority share of this nearby market.

The marketing research and tailored marketing strategy described in this business plan will result in modest after-tax profits of  in year 1, quadrupling after-tax profits within three years. It is estimated that by year 3, revenues will reflect a healthy market share of the local restoration market.

Within the next twelve months it is the objective of the company to market to the local area to promote our business in the Highland Valley and surrounding areas. Our market segment will be 30- to 65-year old owners of old American cars. After year three we plan to expand our business to the Carahge City, Mythtate area. Our studies indicate that the Carahge area doesn't have a lot of competition for our business.

1.1 Objectives

  1. Penetrate the automotive restoration market here in the Highland Valley. Within the next twelve months, it is the objective of the company to market to the local area to promote our business in the Highland Valley and surrounding areas, our market segment will be 30 to 65 years old men and women who own old American cars. After year two we plan to expand our business to the Carahge City, Mythtate area. Our studies indicate that the Carahge City area doesn't have a lot of competition for our business.
  2. Substantially increase profitability. We will encourage price-sensitive jobs to go elsewhere by normalizing the pricing structure. This will allow for more high-end custom work to be performed for the less price-sensitive restoration market sector. This pricing will insure a quadrupling of net profits during the third year.
  3. To improve the administrative processes of the company. This will allow a reduction in the owner's involvement in simple administrative tasks from 50% of his time to 20%, thereby allowing him more time for sales and marketing tasks.
