Wholesale Bicycle Distributor Business Plan

Executive Summary

Wheelie Deals is a wholesale distributor that serves the retail bicycle industry.  Wheelie Deals will carve out a focused niche within this industry, providing closeouts, last-year models, and seconds.  Currently, most of the large wholesalers will occasionally have a closeout to offer, however, the availability of special deals is spotty.  Wheelie Deals will quickly become the #1 source to provide retail shops with above average margins.

Wheelie Deals is lead by Dan Psycle, MBA, a veteran of the bicycle industry.  Dan has modeled Wheelie Deals off of an already successful wholesale distributor business model and will quickly gain market share.  Profitability will be reached by month eight with comfortable profits by year three.
