    New Car Dealership Business Plans, Open Points and Factory ApplicationsBusinessPlanCovers2

    On more than one occasion, our clients have been told by decision makers that our plan was among the best they had ever seen. On the other hand, there were times we advised our clients to pass on a store or open point because our independent analysis indicated the demographics, or other factors, would not support the potential the factory suggested.

    Items covered by our plans include, among other things, research, analysis and conclusions regarding:

    ✓ A description our client’s proposed site location and facility plans
    ✓ A discussion of how our client’s plans would comply with minimum facility requirements
    ✓ Management Compensation plans of employees
    ✓ An analysis of New vehicle sales
    ✓ An analysis of Used vehicle sales including certified programs
    ✓ An analysis of Parts and Accessories sales (both retail and wholesale)
    ✓ A discussion of Service operations
    ✓ A discussion of any anticipated Management fees
    ✓ A plan for Advertising
    ✓ Our client’s commitment to the factory’s brand image and sign programs
