Inspirational Grounds will provide a relaxing, Christian-focused, neighborhood-centered place with freshly roasted coffee, specialty drinks, good books, and music. This is why Inspirational Gardens is the solution to an ever-growing demand. Our target market needs:
- South Central Minneapolis Neighborhood Businesses
- A great coffee at an affordable price
- A place where you can socialize with other people with similar interests
Inspirational Grounds’ goal is to provide the community with a social, entertaining atmosphere where Christian neighbors can meet each other in a neutral, non-denominational setting.
Inspirational Grounds is an S-corporation. This protects the owner from double taxation and personal liability.
This proposal has been prepared for financing in the amount $80,000. Additional financing is needed to purchase equipment and prepare the site. The business owner will invest $15,000 from her own pocket.
Inspirational Grounds is able to successfully open its doors and continue operations thanks to this financing. Inspirational Grounds will provide high-quality products and an inviting environment to its customers through a large initial capital investment. For customers to be able to socialize, they need a unique, modern and innovative environment. Successful operation in year one will provide Inspirational Grounds with a customer base that will allow it to be self sufficient in year two.
Even with our conservative sales forecasts we can maintain a positive cashflow in all months, repay the loans in 12 years and have a positive net worth of more than $27,000 by year three. Over the next three year, we expect our net profit to rise from $12,000 and above $14,000.

- Inspirational Grounds creates a unique, innovative and sophisticated spiritual environment that sets it apart from other local coffee shops.
