If you’re here to create a great business plan for your store and get your store off the ground or to the next level, you’ve come to the right place.
Why? Because I have already written several successful store business plans. And, I have developed a great store business plan template that you can instantly download and quickly customize for your business.
Want proof that your store business plan will be amazing? BusinessWeek calls me “The Business Plan Expert.” You can see BusinessWeek’s special interview of me here:
If you’re ready, and you’re serious about getting the results you want, simply download Growthink’s Ultimate Store Business Plan Template, and you will quickly have a rock-solid, fully-customized store business plan.
Now, since you’re reading this, I’m guessing your goal is not to create a beautiful store business plan. Your real goal is to raise money and/or build a successful store.
Well, I’m here to show you exactly how to get that result.
My company, Growthink, has helped over 2,000 entrepreneurs like you create successful business plans. And, we have helped these entrepreneurs raise over $1 Billion in funding and, more importantly, we’ve led them to go on and build numerous multi-million dollar empires.
And now, you can too, if you download Growthink’s Ultimate Store Business Plan Template and follow my simple step-by-step instructions.

Your Own Winning Store Business Plan
Is Easier Than You Think
Business plans can be long, tedious and daunting work if you haven’t put a real one together before. I’ve met lots of entrepreneurs who spent literally months on their business plans, and they still don’t read well.
I’ve also met entrepreneurs who have tried to “outsource” part or all of their plan to a cheap “consultant” who they thought would get it done right and save time. Big mistake.
Fortunately... you don’t have to go through all this time and expense and still not have the store plan you need.
Why? Because I’ve already written a professional, successful store business plan for you! And you can instantly download my plan, and quickly and easily customize it for your business (I’ve even included simple step-by-step instructions for you to expertly customize it).
The result - you will have a professional, customized store business plan in no time flat. And, at a fraction of the time as if you tried to create the plan yourself. And at a fraction of the cost as if you asked a consultant to create a plan for you.
That’s right, I’ve already done all the hard work for you
With Growthink’s Ultimate Store Business Plan Template, before you know it, you’ll be printing out your store business plan that raises money and/or helps you plan and build a successful business.
My Trick-or-Treating Will
Bankroll Your Business
If you plan to use your store business plan to raise money, you MUST read this:
Do you know how long investors and bankers spend, on average, looking at a business plan?
Ten minutes? Five minutes? Nope. 42 seconds.
How do I know this? Because over the past decade, I’ve met and studied hundreds of SBA lenders, loan officers, venture capitalists, angel investors, pension fund managers, grant-givers and other financing sources ...I’ve dined with them. I’ve drank with them. I’ve done deals with them. I’ve spoken on panels with them. I’ve presented at conferences with them....I’ve even gone Trick-or-Treating with them (with our kids of course :) )!!!
And I’ve even stood there, in their offices, looking over their shoulders while they reviewed business plans.
And what have I found to be true about all types of investors?
If you don’t get them excited in under 42 seconds... or if your plan has some simple mistakes in it... or if your plan is “different” and presented in a way they’re not used to... your plan is going in the garbage.
People, and especially bankers and lenders and investors... are a skittish bunch who like looking for any and every flaw they can find. That’s what they’re trained and paid to do -- identify and manage risk.
Don’t let them have an excuse to see you as risky, just because you made a simple mistake that set off their “critical flaw” radar.
That’s why Growthink’s Ultimate Store Business Plan Template was created in such a way as to not only adhere to the standards that investors and bankers expect, but to influence them to write you checks. In fact, when you complete your business plan using Growthink’s Ultimate Store Business Plan Template, your plan will be in the top 1% of the plans the investor or lender will ever review. It’s that good!
How The Right Business Plan
Leads To An Ultra-Successful Business
I want you to check out the chart below for a second.
What’s interesting about this chart is that the U.S. Small Business Administration found a strong correlation between developing a formal business plan and the long-term success of your business.
In other words... business plans aren’t just valuable for raising money. They actually make for a more successful business in terms of how you execute and the results you get in your business.

The point is, in creating your business plan with our easy step-by-step store template, not only will it squeeze money out of investors and lenders. But it will give you a roadmap for growing a successful store business.
You see, our store business plan template educates you and guides you through the key questions about the customers you serve, your marketing tactics, and the amount you will charge- all the focal points that are a MUST for a successful store business in terms of actual revenues and sales.
And once you quickly update this information into the store template... VOILA, it’s done. You have a proven roadmap to successfully grow your store business.
Not only do you succeed in raising money, but you succeed in growing a really successful store business. After all, raising money isn’t so great if you just spend it all and never get to Break Even and beyond... to Profitability and where the real money is for you and your partners.

-Mark Winstein, Founder
But How Can I Write A Top-Notch Business Plan
If I’m Not A Good Writer... Or I Hate to Write?
Let me be clear about one thing. I’m not going to teach you to become an amazing business writer....because you don’t have to be a great writer to create a great business plan.
Why? Because I’ve already written a professional, proven store business plan for you. You simply edit and personalize it. And we even aid you with step-by-step directions to do this.
Think about it like this...Remember those old “connect the dots” games you used to do as a child? Where you draw a line from number 1 to number 2 to number 3 and so on... and by the end you have an outline of a pretty cool picture; even though you could never draw the picture by yourself.
Well our store business plan template is just like that. We’ve already drawn the beautiful picture. You just need to fill in the details about your business (and we even guide you step-by-step through doing that).
I’ll share something funny with you about how easy our template makes writing your plan....
Entrepreneurs who have used my template and quickly created a store business plan, raised money, and grown their businesses always seem to like to get back in touch with me somewhere down the road once things are going well.
Most of them email me with thank you letters and stories of how things are going and what they’re doing and learning.
The funny part is... many of these thank you letters are poorly written!
That’s right, these entrepreneurs were unable to write a grammatically correct letter. But they were able to quickly and easily produce a full-length, formal store business plan that successfully grew their business.

In early 2009, Harvard Business School published a report. The report proved that entrepreneurs with a track record of success were much more likely to succeed than first-time entrepreneurs and those who have previously failed.
So, how do you ensure success when you’re not yet a successful serial entrepreneur?
Well, you partner with a company like Growthink. Growthink is comprised of successful serial entrepreneurs like myself and my co-founder Jay Turo. And, we’ve figured out how to transfer our success to entrepreneurs like you. In fact, we’ve done it over 2,000 times already.

“Who Should I Write
This Check Out To?”
Will your life be different next week?
It could be incredibly different, as you could be ready and poised to skyrocket towards success in your business.. Here’s how...
Imagine it’s a week from now, and you’re at a restaurant. You’re dressed nicely and you just ordered an appetizer. Across the table from you is someone who is also dressed nicely. And in front of them, placed squarely on their plate, is a crisp, professional 25-page document.
Your business plan.
The person in front of you flips through the pages one last time as you take a sip of your drink. Then they stop. They put the plan down. They look you squarely in the eye.
And then they ask, “Who should I write this check out to?”
You’re sitting there excited. But you don’t want to seem too excited, like you weren’t expecting this moment.
So, you coolly take another sip of your drink and place it down slowly. Then you say, excited but almost in disbelief about how quickly it happened for you-
“I’m happy to have you onboard. You can make the check out to ...”
And that’s it. Your funded... and you’re off and running. Your business plan was not only quick and easy, it helped win you the investment you were looking for.
Now... how about thinking a little longer term too?
Getting money to start or grow your business is great, but it’s just one step.
But let’s say you’re sitting at that same restaurant after you have successfully GROWN your business.
The person across from you again flips through the business plan in front of them, and then they say “Yes... I’d like to buy your company”. Then they proceed to write you a multi-million dollar check and buy your business.
This is the next level of what the right business plan can and will do for you.
Are you ready? Now is the time for you to take the right action. Click here for a preview and to learn how to purchase and download Growthink's Ultimate Store Business Plan Template.
“...when I showed them the business plan, they wrote me a check on the spot!”
I wanted to let you know that since I used Growthink’s Ultimate Business Plan template, my business has improved dramatically and I am FINALLY starting to really grow.
You were right. I was able to easily create my financials with your Excel file (I was really scared about that going in) and editing the Word document was pretty straightforward.
And, then, a friend of mine introduced me to some angel investors. And when I showed them the business plan, they wrote me a check on the spot!

WARNING: If You Don't Use Our Proven
Store Business Plan Template, Your Competitors Will
According to the Kauffman Foundation, nearly 6 million businesses are launched every year in the United States alone. That’s in addition to the 24 million existing businesses.
What that means to you is this - chances are you already have competitors, or entrepreneurs are conceiving a similar business to yours right now.
And, if these competitors raise lots of money or execute on a solid store business plan before you do, it’s going to be really hard for you to compete with them. So you need to complete your business plan now! And it needs to be based on a proven, successful template.

“helped craft, draft and construct the right written presentation. As a result, I got my funding.”
“Like all entrepreneurs (and, I'm a serial one), we all tend to fall in love with our own creations (and words to describe them). We have to! If we're not our biggest cheerleader, who is?
But, seeing our own reflection in the eyes of those who affect our destiny: investors, partners, and key employees -- is not helpful reality. We might eat our own cooking, but will others? Others need to buy into both our 'plans for dinner, and our recipe for a delicious success'. If not, we forever remain hungry, and we're DOA.
This is why Growthink helped birth my company. They got to know both me and my vision. They helped 'smack me upside the head' to help make sure I was realistic, about meeting expectations. As a result, they helped craft, draft and construct the right written presentation. As a result, I got my funding.”
-Jeffrey Ullman, CEO
P.P.S. Got questions?
I’ve tried to answer any questions that you might have below. If you have any remaining questions, please don’t hesitate to call or email us at 877-BIZ-PLAN or at email@example.com.

The financial section of Growthink’s Ultimate Store Business Plan Template is done in Microsoft Excel®. All the financial calculations are done for you and you simply need to input your expectations.
