Pet Supplies Business Plan

Pet Supplies Business Plan

Tonya McClendon designed and built several prototypes, as well as an elevated pet feeder model. She plans to invest at most $22,000 via a combination savings and loans. Additional funding is needed to protect her feeder components and design ideas as well to bring the products to markets. She plans to incorporate Tall Drink of Water as a New York-based subchapter S holding corporation to shield her from personal liability and double taxation.

Ms. McClendon intends to establish her product as a brand leader in the $34 billion pet products industry, which is experiencing steady growth, but it is fragmented with no clear brand leaders producing elevated feeders.

Ms. McClendon is a business manager, operator, and technical expert with experience in financial services, food service and architecture. She also has expertise in planning for Olympic events. She has a strong customer service and sales foundation and is comfortable working in environments ranging from small family businesses to Fortune 500 corporations. She can draw on a wide range of skills and experiences to launch the company.

Based on her research she is certain that a start-up pet product business that designs and produces innovative, contemporary elevated pet feeders for designers, pet care professionals and individual consumers will be able to succeed in the United States. This country has more than half the households with at least one pet cat or dog.

Based on the performance and potential growth of complementary products, sales forecasts for the first three year are modest. Projections for first year sales of $143,800 are expected. Then, sales will grow at 10% per annum over the next two, rising to $248.748 in the third year. Once the brand is established, sales are expected to rise dramatically.
