A dog bakery business plan? You may be tempted to skip this step, especially if you are starting a business from home. But a start-up business plan will make or break your bakery business.
Your start-up business plan will help get your bakery business organized and off to a good start. It will serve as a kind of road map that gives you direction and makes sure that you get to where you want to go—reaching your goals and enjoying success.
And a business plan keeps you focused and forces you to make important decisions about your dog bakery business. Decisions that will make a big difference in whether your dog bakery succeeds…or fails.
Incidentally, if you will be borrowing money to get your bakery started, the lender will require a copy of your business plan, to show them that you are seriously starting a real business.
In business, doing your homework (research) and mapping out a plan for your business, are everything! We call the plan a business plan.
Make no mistake about this – a dog bakery business is a real business.
In order to succeed, you need to be able to compete in the business world, against established bakeries and retail stores. Having a business plan will help you create a true business—not just a hobby business.
Writing a plan for your bakery is not hard. You don't have to have a college degree to do this.
All you have to do is put your ideas and plans down on paper in an organized fashion. You will end up with a business plan that is now your plan for action. If you follow it closely, you will get everything important done, at just the right time!
Think of your business plan as a checklist, to help you start your business.
When I started Natural Pet Bakery, my husband Steve (who is a CPA and business consultant) made me write a business plan. I reluctantly agreed--it sounded like a lot of work. But, it really helped me get organized! I think it will help you get organized, too!

Here are the things that you should consider and put into your business plan:
What dog treat recipes will you use? Develop a product line that you can easily handle—not too many products (you'll go crazy trying to keep up with orders) and not too few (Your “ product line” won't be interesting to customers).
To write your dog bakery business plan, consider each of the above points carefully. Write down details about each, and be very specific.
Here’s the test…When you are done, you should be able to show your plan to someone else, and they should be able to visualize how your business will look—and what you will do to make that happen!
