We will be located at 1234 Skate Rd. N, Suburb, Oregon, with the Suburb Central Chariots bus stop on the corner, approximately three blocks from the Suburb skate park, in the highly trafficked School House Square Mall.  Burly will be the only skate shop in Suburb, Oregon.

All product purchases will be subject to the company’s mission of providing only high-quality, cutting-edge items.

2.1 Start-up Summary

Burly’s costs are listed below. 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 purpose of this business plan is to secure a $50,000 small business loan. This supplemental financing is required to work on site preparation, inventory, and operational expenses.

The owners’ cash investment of $5,600 will be applied towards any required qualifications for small business loan and will be applied towards the start-up cost. The owners will also contribute current assets consisting of racks, hangers, shelves, etc. valued at approx. $1,200.

Successful operation and building a loyal customer base will allow Burly to be self sufficient and profitable at the end of one year.
