Follow these tips to quickly develop a working business plan from this sample.
1. Don't worry about finding an exact match
We have over 550 sample business plan templates. So, make sure the plan is a close match, but don't get hung up on the details.
Your business is unique and will differ from any example or template you come across. So, use this example as a starting point and customize it to your needs.
2. Remember it's just an example
Our sample business plans are examples of what one business owner did. That doesn't make them perfect or require you to cram your business idea to fit the plan structure.
Use the information, financials, and formatting for inspiration. It will speed up and guide the plan writing process.
3. Know why you're writing a business plan
To create a plan that fits your needs, you need to know what you intend to do with it.
Are you planning to use your plan to apply for a loan or pitch to investors? Then it's worth following the format from your chosen sample plan to ensure you cover all necessary information.
But, if you don't plan to share your plan with anyone outside of your business—you likely don't need everything.Download This Sample Plan Now
