Car Wash Business Plan

Financial Plan

Forecast

Key Assumptions

Our Key Assumptions: 

1 – Everyone appreciates a clean car 

2 – Research and experience show that the average household income in the area is 70,000 so they can afford a 10 to 15 dollar exterior car wash once a week without sacrificing their essentials. 

3 – We assume current and long term loan rates will be 10% and tax rate will be 25%. We have planned our financing and our payables with this in mind. We will appreciate lower rates but will be profitable with higher rates in place 

4 – We assume that we have relationships that will result in deals that will be mutually beneficial. Mark’s family has been in business in the area for years and have contacts that like and trust him. This will help us get going.
