A solid business plan is a “roadmap” for your business. It allows you to prepare, focus, and set goals – particularly your financial goals. It shows where you are going and how you will get there. It helps you and everyone who reads it to understand your capabilities and your business’ needs. If applying for financing, a strong business plan demonstrates to lenders that you have done your research in determining how you will reach your financial goals.
But, writing a business plan can be a daunting task. It takes time and organization to communicate your ideas easily. To help you created a polished, useful business plan for your food business, Food Starter has created the our Market Feasibility Boot Camp that workshops your food idea from inkling to fully formed business plan in 12 weeks!
