$65,000 bank loan for retail Pet Store Takeover
In 1992 Linda Bleoo was working as an employee at a pet store in Mississauga, Canada. After she discovered that the company was going bankrupt, her friends convinced her to buy the store for herself and run her own small business.At first, she didn’t think she could do it. Besides, seven established pet store chains were competing for the deal she wanted.
The Bank of Montreal chose to back Linda and gave her the $65,000 she needed.
“I don’t know how I would even have started a project like this without BizPlan Builder. I was up against seven big players in the pet industry and managed to beat them all out because of the professionalism in my business plan.”
– Linda Bleoo, Classic Pets, Montreal, Canada
Since Linda purchased her business, she’s made a quite a success of “Classic Pets” located in South Common Mall. It’s amazing what you can do when you go for what you want and use the right tools.
$375,000 seed financing for small retail chain
“I have a tech background and work as a consultant, and I like entrepreneurial and small businesses. I put together a retail storefront plan for a series of chocolate lounges. BizPlanBuilder has a nice clean flow of what I needed to include. It gave me the roadmap without me needing to create it. I used it extensively, filled it in myself… It has all core sections that I needed to put a plan together for a small retail chain. It’s already 3/4 funded @ $375,000.
