Mahogany Western Wear

Executive Summary

Opportunity

Problem

There is a growing demand for a apparel store that caters to the African-American cowboy community in Houston Texas.

Solution

Mahogany Western Wear’s mission is to offer quality, name brand western wear in an assortment of sizes and styles to accommodate all varying body styles and shapes. 

Market

The goal of Mahogany Western Wear is to serve the local African-American cowboy community that have difficulty finding western clothes that fit their larger frames. We will also serve the Hispanic community which tends to have a slimmer yet shorter frame.

Competition

Mahogany Western Wear has three competitors within a 15 miles radius of its location. Cavender’s Boot City, Barbecue Hall of Fame, Turner Saddlery is approximately 12.1 miles from Mahogany Western Wear and is the farthest of the three competitors. 

Why Us?

We are African-American owned and plan on becoming a central hub of shopping activity for the local African-American cowboy population as well others who enjoy wearing western apparel.

Expectations

Forecast

 The company will start with three months inventory on hand for apparel and accessories as this is the main revenue generator. The majority of the company’s assets will reside in inventory. The opening days cash on hand balance will be $18K.

Successful operation and building a loyal customer base will allow Mahogany Western Wear to be self sufficient and profitable.
