Looking for a sample business plan for seamless gutters? Various styles of leaf and debris-protected gutters have been popularized over the past 10-15 years, but the most successful tend to be the seamless variety often advertised as "guards" and installed on-site by licensed contractors. While the brand names vary, the concept is the same. And a business plan for a seamless gutter installer can also take several forms, though to be successful it must convey that there is a market opportunity and a reasonable expectation of return on investment within 2-3 years. The plan for bank lending should include:
• What are the competing gutter systems you'll be up against?
• How many employees do you expect to need for the business?
• When will you reach your break-even point?
• How will you market yourself, and will any campaigns run independent of the corporate parent, provided you buy into a branded gutter system?
The qualifications of your management team and installers can also be a great thing to play up in the document, as these selling points add value to the presentation in the eyes of the Small Business Administration. The business plan also needs to include a financial pro forma that shows three years of profit and loss statements, revenue forecasting, a balance sheet, cash flow, sensitivity analysis, and of course a use of funds showing how you will apply capital to launch the business.
