The Company will carry an extensive variety of pistols, large caliber paintball/air guns, and a number of accessories commonly used within amateur and professional paintball games. The paintball gun products offered by the Company are priced from $80 to $800, which allows paintball enthusiasts of any socioeconomic level the ability to purchase the Company’s products.

3.2 Rental of Paintball Equipment and Field Usage

The secondary revenue source for the business will come from the ongoing usage of the Company’s paintball field coupled with the rental/sale of paintball equipment (guns, fatigues, CO2 canisters, and paintballs). Each person playing the sport will be given access to the field for six hours. Customers will pay a flat rate of $60 to $80 for renting gear and using the Company’s paintball field facility. The sales of paintball ammunition will not be included in the rental fees. This is an extremely important source of revenue for the business as the contribution margins generated through this income center are extremely high. Additionally, it will allow the business to remain profitable despite any declines in sale of paintball guns.

4.0 Strategic and Market Analysis

4.1 Economic Outlook

This section of the analysis will detail the economic climate, the paintball 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

Insurance statistics show that paintball is one of the safest sports in existence, even more so than golf. The sport requires a significant amount of equipment that can cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars. Among paintball gun retailers and field providers, the aggregate revenues generated exceed $500 million dollars in 2007. Management expects that the ongoing growth rate of the industry will remain in step with the growth of the general economy. However, paintball is quickly becoming a popular sport among the industry’s core demographic of young males, and Management foresees the possibility that the industry will grow at a higher than expected rate as more people become paintball enthusiasts.

4.3 Customer Profile

The National Shooting Sports Foundation estimates that there are approximately 8 million paintball enthusiasts within the United States. Males dominate the market with 88% of the market share. By age demographics, males between 12 and 24 comprise of more than 50% of the market. The remaining age demographics are primary among males 25 to 35. Men over the age of 40 consist of a very small portion of the aggregate market. The average paintball enthusiast spends approximately $1,200 per year on equipment, rentals, and accessories related to the sport of paintball. Approximately $300 is spent per year on fees relating to the use of paintball facilities among enthusiasts. The NSSF defines a paintball enthusiast as a person that engages in paintball activities at a licensed facility more than 10 times per year. Management is well aware of the statistics relating to the paintball industry and the Company’s marketing messages, sales literature, and other marketing strategies are properly geared towards the market’s core audience of males aged 16 to 35.

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.
