Thinking about opening a cupcake shop? Without question you need a cupcake business plan. Every business—from major corporations to small businesses—need a business plan for two purposes—1) to raise funding 2) to use as a roadmap—or both. Cupcake businesses are no different. When writing a cupcake business plan you should think about how you will make money, what will make you business special, and what makes you the right person to successfully operate the company. These are all important things you will want to include in your cupcake business plan. The plan should following the following structure:
• Executive Summary: A basic description of your idea and why it has the opportunity to succeed.
• Product description: A simple paragraph about your cupcakes and your shop. What is the atmosphere like, is there a theme?
• Market opportunity: Do people in your community want cupcakes? Provie it!
• Financial projections: How much will ingredients cost? How many cupcakes do you think you will sell each week?
These sections can differ dramatically from business to business. However, your cupcake business plan should clearly address each of these points and should provide a compelling argument that will convince a banker or investor to fund your business.
