Executive Summary for Business Plans of Franchisees

Writing a business plan for a franchised outlet of a larger company to get funding or find investors is difficult because the franchisor already has a plan which is working, but until you are privy to it upon purchase you actually know relatively few details. The franchisor must keep this information proprietary to insure competitors do not steal the information, but the franchise buyer needs the information to prepare a business plan to get a loan from a bank. Thus a catch 22 exists and is further exacerbated by the fact there are laws against some types of disclosures, which many franchisors due to the litigious nature of franchising do not wish to disclose based on advice from their attorneys. So what do you do? Well, you do the best you can using the UFOC, uniform franchise offering circular or ask the franchisor to send in a business plan directly to your banker who, signs a waiver of non-disclosure and you cannot see it until purchase.

Yet if you are seeking private investors they will want to see a business plan and therefore you will have to try to put one together. I have bought 12 books on how to write a business plan with hundreds of complete business plans inside; none of the samples have anything to do with a franchised business. So, below please find a sample of an executive summary, which is the most important part of any business plan and probably for the most part all a banker will read. Some entrepreneurs accuse bankers of not being able to read and I am in that group. I recommend you read this and use it as a model to develop your own executive summary for your franchised business outlet business plan. This particular example was written for a mobile car wash franchise outlet, but serves as a fairly good example for you.

Our operating methods are far superior to that of our current competition. Generally all of the competition listed in the yellow pages as well as those we've talked with and observed admit that they have only been in the business a couple of years are not planning on making it a career. Further observations indicate that there is far more than enough business for everyone.

Our long-term goal is to wash cars for one out of every ten owners in our town. Ten percent market penetration can be achieved if we follow our franchisor's system perfectly. We want to be the #1 franchise in the entire system. We plan on renewing our Franchise Agreement every five years at no charge to us. We will remain in good standing with our franchisor and follow their proven methods of operations in order to do this.
