Introduction

Introduction to my Business Plan People seek to enter self-employment for a variety of reasons and there are many, diverse opportunities for starting a successful business venture. However, it is essential that any business has an appropriate legal structure and sufficient backing. Before you can produce a business plan you have to select a business, a structure and identify sources of finance. Your research into this will provide the background for the introduction to your business plan.

I want to create a caf� that everyone has heard of and that everyone has been to and still purchases coffee, other beverages and small snacks at. My aims and objectives are part of this process and with any luck I should be able to achieve them at the end of my first two years. Other than that though I would hope to become known, not just for my coffee, but also for my level of good service and satisfaction.
