A roadside assistance business plan, used for a company that models itself after AAA, is a simple enough document to prepare in theory, but it does need to pull together enough statistics on the industry to make a convincing case for why the market needs a new player. If you're in business already, provide a description of your recent years in business, pull together your profit and loss statements and balance sheets, and describe how you have invested any outside capital to date. For a start-up, you should know that a banker will be looking for a set of information on the market potential for your new company. Among the questions sure to get asked:
• How many roadside assistance businesses are there in the area?
• What is the combined revenue in this industry nationally?
• How much have companies in this space made locally?
• How many employees does the average company have?
• What amount of money do you need to complete and how will you spend it?
The business plan for roadside assistance needs to address the market from a few angles. Having competitive research helps because it can be used as a baseline for your own modeling. You should also, however, talk about the market need and the customer profile (commonalities, demographics, etc.) that is most likely to pay for a roadside assistance service. Also show whether you plan to sell membership coverage or just charge for one-off assistance fees, and list out the potential sales by month for the first year.
