Writing a 7-Eleven business plan can be more difficult than creating your standard business plan. That is because 7-Eleven requires that your business plan seeking a franchise location follow a very specific format. If it does not following 7-Eleven's guidelines, they can either deny your application or ask for revisions. This difficulty is compounded by the fact that many lenders—who you might be seeking a loan from to get your business started—have a different set of requirements. To get started with a 7-Eleven business plan, we think the best place is by focusing on fulfilling the corporation's requirements, which are often stringent. Typical sections in a 7-Eleven business plan, for instance, include the following:
• Information about your proposed location
• Details about how you would improve the existing location
• An analysis of how you would run the store and train employees
• Detailed financials by season
These are just a few of the items that 7-Eleven typically requires its entrepreneurs to include in their business plan. They also require more standard sections as well, such as a market analysis, marketing strategy, biographical information, and more. Be aware, 7-Eleven, and other franchises, regularly change their requirements, so it makes sense to visit the corporate website before embarking on your business plan.
