Historical College Park, Georgia is an optimal location for launching a new bakery. Sweet Treats also hopes to become a destination known statewide with future plans on expanding throughout Georgia. We plan to manipulate our location in the metropolitan area of Georgia to our utmost advantage.

As the orders and referrals from business partners come in, over the next few months Sweet Treats will receive an added boost of increased traffic. Therefore, we are aggressively planning for a 50% increase in sales the second year of business. By creating a new niche in the wedding and party industry, Sweet Treats will increase sales by more than $200,000 over the next year while maintaining a gross margin of 80%. Through a philosophy of "the finest quality, and detail oriented" regarding both product and service, Sweet Treats will establish itself as an exceptional bakery in the Southeast. We also will gain a competitive advantage in our delivered and catered service. This plan outlines our company concept, philosophy and forecasted financials.
