It is far and away superior to other pet grooming business plan products available today. It is not the cheapest but we wanted you to have the best. Although there are good business plan writing books and software available at office supply stores and online, none of them are devoted to pet grooming, and none offer 7 real sample grooming business plans.

If you don’t know accounting you will find their software difficult to use, if not impossible. Not so with our product. It produces truly professional business plans. In fact, read our Testimonials page. Actual groomers like yourself share how impressed banks were with their finished products.

A Few Technical Reminders

Readers creating business plans must Microsoft Excel® and Microsoft Word® programs (or compatibles). Both programs are included in Microsoft Office® 2003 or later and today’s Office 360. There are other compatible spreadsheet and word processing programs that can be used as well. Mac computers can be used as long as they are running compatible word processing and spreadsheet programs.

Advanced users must be able to use these programs and have some bsic accounting knowledge. Like most groomers and career seekers you should expect to require some level of assistance to complete the Financial Plan section. It’s worth it; the Financial Plan information is typically mandatory in business plans seeking lenders and investors. Most users only have to ask a few questions of an accountant or bookkeeper to complete their financials.

You will need a printer, black and white or color optional, to print your plans. If you don’t have one there are office supply stores, and places like Fedex Office stores or The UPS Store, that can read and print your final business plan document. All of them should be able to beautifully bind your final business plans too.

Our support services do not include instruction in how to use your word processing and spreadsheet programs, such as MS Word, MS Office or MS Excel or compatibles.

We have written business plans for groomers since 1989 and continue to consult at times with bookkeepers and accountants on business plan projects. You should expect to do the same, but the amount varies by your skills. You can reduce the assistance you require. Our step-by-step instructions guide you to collect a lot of information on your own. Also, our step-by-step instructions guide you to make decisions like your grooming fees to charge, what your rent or mobile van payment will be, and costs of operating the business, the equipment you need. You shouldn’t need to pay for that information if you do the research. Self-employed persons should be able to gather this information.

Then our step-by-step instructions guide you to project how many pets you will groom, how much to pay your staff, etc. Again, you should be able to do that research. You also have 7 business plan models in the User Guide to help you.

As a businessperson that grooms you compile all the required information on your own. Only then are you ready to use the Advanced Features. Perhaps you have a friend or family member with writing, word processing and financial skills. Anyone should be able to locate a consultant, bookkeeper or accountant to help you to with the fill-in Pet Grooming Business and Financial Plans using your notes. You know grooming; they know finance.

If you do all the preparatory work it usually takes 1 to 2 hours for your professional assistant to finalize your entries in the Financial Plan, and then you can write the text of the business plan. Some of our consultation clients have worked with professionals associated with the SBDC (SBA) and SCORE programs they helped our business plan clients complete the financials for very little, even nothing.

Consult with your professional assistants before purchasing this title to better understand their fees to help you complete the Financial Plan and Grooming Business Plan as needed. Our selling price does not include the fees you may incur to complete your business plan. We are not responsible for any fees you may incur, this is a fill-in program meaning you complete the work or get the assistance to help you complete the project.
