4.0 Strategic and Market Analysis
4.1 Economic Outlook
This section of the analysis will detail the economic climate, the automotive parts 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-2010, at which point the economy will begin a prolonged recovery period. However, the Company may initially have some issues with top line income generation as tires and rims are a luxury expense, and during times of economic duress (like the current economic situation) discretionary purchases may be eliminated from potential customer budgets.
4.2 Industry Analysis
About 130,000 companies in the US are involved primarily in automotive services (after market parts and service) with combined annual revenue of $65 billion. The industry is highly fragmented: 10,000 companies have annual revenue over $1 million, 150 have revenue over $10 million. Approximately 10% of this market is dedicated to the after-market performance and tuning vehicles. The profitability of individual companies depends on primarily on volume, because many costs are fixed. Large companies are more likely to use expensive diagnostic equipment efficiently and benefit from advertising, but the economies of scale aren't large.
4.3 Customer Profile
The Company expects that the average customer of the Tires and Rims Store will be a male automotive enthusiast that has a specific interest in middle market sedans, hot rods, and sports cars that are customized according to their specifications. Management further expects that the average customer will be between the ages of 21 and 45, and will have an annual household income in excess of $45,000 per year.
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

These strategies include traditional print advertisements and ads placed on search engines on the Internet. Below is a description of how the business intends to market its services to the general public. The Tires and Rims Store will also use an internet based strategy.

7.0 Financial Plan
7.1 Underlying Assumptions
• The Tires and Rims Store will have an annual revenue growth rate of 16% per year.
• The Owner will acquire $100,000 of debt funds to develop the business.
• The loan will have a 10 year term with a 9% interest rate.
7.2 Sensitivity Analysis
The business’s revenues are moderately sensitive to changes in the general economy. The Company’s revenues will come from the ongoing installation of wheels/rims and product sales. As such, during times of economic recession, the Tires and Rims Store may have trouble generating top line income as the services and products offered by the Company are not-essential to the operating functions of an automobile. However, the gross margins generated by the Company’s services will allow the business to continue to service its financial obligations on a monthly basis.
