Best Practices for Writing a Modular Offices Company Business Plan

Many new modular offices business owners feel unprepared for the challenge of writing a business plan.

The good news is that business plan help may be closer than you think. There is a broad range of resources available for solo entrepreneurs who face the daunting task of writing a business plan from scratch.

Our Business Plan Help section discusses some of the business plan resources other entrepreneurs have found useful.

Review Competitors

Long before you open a modular offices business in your area, it's a good idea to find out how many competitors you have. Try our link below to get a list of local competitors in your city. After clicking on the link, type in your city, state and zip code to get a list of modular offices businesses near you.

Is the local market large enough to support another modular offices business? If not, you had better be sure that you are doing things much better than the competition.

Talk to People Who Are Already in the Business

If you want to open a modular offices business the next step is to have a conversation with someone who is in the business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.

Thankfully, an owner of a a modular offices business in a different city can be a great learning resource for you, as long as they don't view you as a competitive threat. In fact, they are often very willing to share startup advice with you. In my experience, you may have to call ten business owners in order to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.

So, what can you do to find a modular offices business founder who is willing to advise you because you live in different cities?

We can help. Follow the link below, try a few city/state combos or zipcodes, and then start calling!

Pros & Cons of Buying a Modular Offices Business

An acquisition can be a great way to enter modular offices business ownership. But it's important to evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of buying a business before you decide on either an acquisition or startup approach.

BENEFITS: Existing companies have proven business models and a history of profitability. They should also have some degree of brand recognition and an established customer base.

DRAWBACKS: On the downside, modular offices business acquisitions can be difficult to adapt to your unique business philosophy so it's important to make sure the business is capable of achieving your ownership goals before you initiate the buying process.

Don't Forget About Franchising As an Option

As an entrepreneur, your chances avoiding failure in business zoom upwards when you opt to franchise rather than going it alone.

If your goal is to start a modular offices business, it's worthwhile to check out whether purchasing a franchise might make sense for you.

The link below gives you access to our franchise directory so you can see if there's a franchise opportunity for you. You might even find something that points you in a completely different direction.
