Business Plans and Profiles Index

A Subject Guide to Sample Business Plans and Profiles for Specific Business Types

Comment Please give us your comments about the Index

Overview

This index lists types of small businesses and a corresponding sample business plan, profile or book about the business with sources provided after each entry.  Entries that refer to actual sample plans are in bold print. If the plan or profile is online, a link is provided. 

One plan available both online and in a printed source is Finestkind Seafoods, Inc.  This is the model plan for any type of startup business, available online from the Ace Management Group Inc., and in these printed sources: The Business Planning Guide , Cash Flow Control Guide, and Pennsylvania Small Business Operation Resources Guide.     

Print sources indexed are limited to books in the Business Department of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.   A Bibliography that follows the index provides call numbers to easily locate these books in our Small Business Collection. Your own local library may also own some of these books. The Bibliography also includes the url’s for web sites indexed.

Finally, we call your attention to these small business web sites:

  • Create a comprehensive, professional Business Plan with the template on the LawDepot website.
  • The Tactics of Creating a Business Plan from Columbus Enterprise Development Corporation, is a detailed question and answer guide to writing a business plan with links to online resources and collections of data.
  • MasterCard Working for Small Business has a step-by-step online Business Plan Workbook that presents the components of a good plan, with in depth explanations of ratios.
  • SCORE has Business Plan Templates for a start-up and an established business.
  • The SBA outlines the entire business planning process with their Small Business Planner.
