4.0 Strategic and Market Analysis

4.1 Economic Outlook

This section of the analysis will detail the economic climate, the laundry mat industry, the customer profile, and the competition that the business will face as it progresses through its business operations. Currently, the economic market condition in the United States is in recession. This slowdown in the economy has also greatly impacted real estate sales, which has halted to historical lows. Many economists expect that this recession will continue until mid-2009, at which point the economy will begin a prolonged recovery period.

4.2 Industry Analysis

Within the United States, there are approximately 13,000 businesses that operate one of more coin operated laundry locations. Each year, these companies aggregately generate more than $3.5 billion dollars per while providing jobs to 50,000 people. Payrolls in each of the last five years have exceeded $625 million dollars. This is a mature industry that enjoys insulation from changes in the general economy. Regardless of the general economic environment, people will continue to need to have their clothes cleaned. Additionally, revenues during economic recessions may actually increase as consumers forego purchases of their own washers and dryers. This is a very stable type of business to operate, and Mr. Doe intends to capitalize on the stability of this industry.

4.3 Customer Profile

In this section of the analysis, you should describe the type of customer you are seeking to acquire. These traits include income size, type of business/occupation; how far away from your business is to your customer, and what the customer is looking for. In this section, you can also put demographic information about your target market including population size, income demographics, level of education, etc.

4.4 Competitive Analysis

This is one of the sections of the business plan that you must write completely on your own. The key to writing a strong competitive analysis is that you do your research on the local competition. Find out who your competitors are by searching online directories and searching in your local Yellow Pages. If there are a number of competitors in the same industry (meaning that it is not feasible to describe each one) then showcase the number of businesses that compete with you, and why your business will provide customers with service/products that are of better quality or less expensive than your competition.

5.2 Marketing Strategies

The Company intends to use a localized marketing campaign to develop the customer base for the business. To that end, Mr. Doe has developed the following marketing campaigns that he will use at the onset of operations. Foremost, Mr. Doe intends to acquire a highly visible retail location that will attract a significant amount of foot traffic. This will ensure that the marketing campaign budgets can be kept to a minimum, and that the signage of the facility will provide a significant amount of visibility.
