The business plan for soft drinks needs to tackle a handful of issues. For one thing, there can't be much debate that the soft drink market is a tight and contentious space. The industry titans Pepsi and Coca-Cola have their hold on the upper end of the market, leaving a fractured share for competitors to fight for. But there are enormous opportunities in this multi-billion dollar space. Some firms have launched specialty high-end colas, others have focused on organic low-calorie spritzers, and still others have found ways to merge special herbs, sugars, even alcohols with their beverages to create a unique taste. The business plan for soft drinks should start there: what makes your product a unique one? Describe it and analyze as follows:
• Talk about the company history to date
• Give a list of all product lines you envision and a description for each
• Break out the markets and address your target buyers
• Show the marketing plan you can put in place to brand your soft drinks
• Analyze the direct and indirect competitors for you
The business plan for soft drinks should have a marketing plan that proves you know a thing or two about how to brand a new product. Entering a competitive space requires that you maximize all of the differentiating factors at your disposal, and one of those may well be branding. What are your positioning strategy, your intended price points, your chief advertising channels, and so forth? This information should influence how you model the business financially, too, as your budget for marketing is a critical input for the P&L. MasterPlans can help you write this business plan.
