Business planning- Possible Business.

Introduction

Unit 6: Business planning- Possible Business This is a list of possible businesses- * Fast food take away * T-shirt printing shops * Specialist model shop * Hair dressers Fast food takeaway: This would be a fast food take-a-way shop based in Kenley. It will sell burgers, chicken and chips and will be aimed at people who do not have time to cook or are hungry whilst out. There is a lot of competition in all areas so it would be hard to compete with larger big brand fast food shops in the local area such as KFC. Start up costs include the premises, cooking equipment, stock, counters and office fittings, and when started, wages for staff from local area. The explanation for not choosing this as my final business is that there is too much well established competition in the area. T-shirt printing shop: A shop that prints and sells T-shirts of customers own designs. The premises would be in Warlingham as there is no competition for quite a distance I believe the nearest one to be in Caterham which is about 30 minutes away. Start up costs will include premises which I would have to rent because of limited finance, T-shirts, ink and printing machines, counters and shop fittings. ...read more.

We will also think about the possibility of starting up an online shop. The shop will sell its goods to customers through the shop but I am thinking about the possibility of an online shop as well which will have to use a delivery company such as U.P.S to ship orders to customers who could be all over the country. I will provide 30 day return policy to ensure quality to my customers, if they are not satisfied the may return the goods. To ensure high quality balsa and other wood I will make sure the wood is all graded so customers will get the best quality wood. There is a premise available on the Goadstone road which would be suitable as it is in a great location as there is no competition and the nearest model shop is about 45 minutes away. It is big enough to display models and other accessories and there is also a store room where stock can be kept. Rent in the area is fairly expensive how ever the site is so appropriately placed it would be worth the expense. To advertise the company I would put advert in local papers and in specialised model magazines such as RCM&E and Model Flyer. ...read more.
