New Store Launch: Phase One
Opening a new store without a Phase One Project could be suicide and eliminate a store’s chance for success!
A PHASE ONE PROJECT usually takes about a week to complete. The project will give you a RETAIL SITE ANALYSIS, a COMPETITIVE SURVEY, and a FINANCIAL BLUEPRINT/ANALYSIS. This project will be in ‘Bank Ready’ form and has been used in SBA Loan Packaging (504, 7A, others), USDA loans, COOP Loans, Economic Development funding, Food Desert grants and more. Do not overpay with lawyers, CPA firms, and non-Industry people…this is too important, and you are in good hands with an industry veteran who also has the accounting skills.
A PHASE ONE PROJECT can also be done for retailers that are already up and running…and YES, better late than never. We simply come in and complete the RETAIL SITE ANALYSIS and COMPETITIVE SURVEY as we normally would, then pivot and use your current and past financials to construct your FINANCIAL BLUEPRINT/ANALYSIS. Wouldn’t you feel better having a file on each of you stores-that includes a Pro-Forma Operating Statement (P&L) based on changes you will make, a Break-Even Analysis for Sales (This will tell you to the penny, what your sales need to be to turn a profit), a Break-Even Analysis for Cash Flow (This will tell you to the penny, what it takes to pay your bills, notes, etc. This will also include adjustments to depreciation, loan balance pay-down, and more.). We can also help you construct a budget moving forward. Without these financial items in your hands-it would be very hard to operate your business.
A PHASE ONE PROJECT is what you need to get your new store open, or to bring you up to speed-as to where you ‘really are’ financially.
