Frozen Custard Shop Business Plan

Executive Summary

Bauman's Frozen Custard and Italian Ice will be a scoop shop located on a busy street in downtown Eugene, Oregon.  Bauman's is a start-up shop and has long-term presence plans in the Eugene/Springfield market.  Along with a $15,000 investment by Matthew Bauman, Bauman's Frozen Custard hopes to initially make a successful effort to secure start up financing through a combination of investment and debt to establish the location.

Bauman's is looking to bring Frozen Custard and Italian Ice to the Eugene market, where the product is currently unavailable.  The company's initial offerings will be a mixture of rich, creamy Frozen Custard and bright, sweet Italian Ice in a selection of sizes.  Through selective marketing we intend to create a loyal customer base that will see Bauman's Frozen Custard and Italian Ice as a high-class, yet affordable scoop shop with a prestigious product offering. 

We predict our first year sales will reach approximately $66,000 and climb to over $90,000 by the end of the second year.  Despite an initial loss in year one, we expect to become profitable by year two without endangering our cash reserves.  According to our marketing research, these sales should be easily attainable by even a start up scoop shop. Our overall financial model is conservative and it emphasizes long-term opportunities in the local market over quick returns favored by hip new restaurants with short life spans in bigger cities.
