Some of the most important information for a pet crematorium business plan includes the number of people living within 10-25 miles and, more importantly, the number of family pets. Information on the number of animals in a given household is actually extrapolated from Census Bureau data and can be found online, updated every 5 years. Data sets on expenditures by the average family on household pets can also be obtained and could be helpful information for your document. Also, since you will obtain a lot of work from veterinary and emergency animal hospitals in the region, get a handle on where those are in relation to you, how big they are, and so forth. Other considerations:
• Are you in direct competition with animal care facilities that have on-site cremation?
• Where is the closest current crematory?
• What staffing needs do you have?
• How much capital funding do you seek?
• What marketing must you do, if any?
On the chance that you are already in business, a business plan for this industry should include a brief historical analysis that shows your profit and loss statements for up to 3 years back. A short written synopsis of the company to-date is also a good idea. Use the past performance or, for a start-up, industry averages and market data to inform the revenue and expense projections and show 3 years at a minimum (5 years for investors).
