How to Write a Coffee Shop  Plan Powered By Docstoc
					Do you want to open your own coffee shop? First, you will want to create a coffee
shop business plan. Your plan will help you get company financing and secure
potential business in addition to providing a well-organized path for you to follow
when growing your business.
  There are multiple benefits to creating this outline. Right from the start, you will
have a good idea of what it will cost to launch and operate your coffee shop, how you
will get customers and how soon you will be able to turn a profit. Knowing these
answers in advance can help you design a profitable business and worry less about
what will happen next.
  You may wonder how you get starting writing your business plan. There are
basically three ways you can do this, and you get to decide which is the best option
for you.
  1. You Can Employ a Writer
  Do you want to leave the writing to someone else? You can, by hiring a professional
writer. You will pay more for this service, but you will not have to do much work. You
can spend your time doing other business tasks. You can get a detailed, professionally
written plan with which you can approach lenders and other financiers.
  2. You Can Create it Yourself
  Writing your own plan requires time and some skill. There are books that will teach
you how to write your own documents. If you have extra time and some knowledge or
experience with business planning, this may be the best option for you.
  Do you want to create a simple start-up outline for your company to follow, rather
than using a coffee shop business plan to apply for capital? In either case, there are
certain sections that you want to include.
  The first is a statement of purpose and description of your company (what will your
company be doing and why?). Second, you want to include a marketing analysis,
which should cover your target market, competitors in the market and future growth
outlook in your sector.
  Third, cover details on business operations, equipment and supplies needed to run
the company and management personnel. Fourth, discuss financial data like capital
needed to start, a break even analysis, balance sheet and future income projections.
  You can do a search online for "business plan outline" or "business plan template"
and find sample layouts for free that make the planning process easier.
  3. You Can Use Fill-in-the-Blank Software
  Software programs are the ideal solution for entrepreneurs who want to handle the
task themselves and save money - but they do not have a lot of time to waste. Some of
the top professional software programs are available for less than $100. Using the
software takes very little time, and some business people have finished creating their
plans in under 24 hours.
  Some business planning software programs are developed by professional business
plan writers, so your final plan will appear to have been written by experts. The key is
that you do not have to spend a large amount of money or long hours to get very
similar results to that of professionals.
