Foreword

This sample business plan was prepared by Craig Gonzales, undergraduate student, and by Dewey E. Johnson, Ph.D., Professor of Management and Director, Small Business Institute, Sid Craig School of Business, California State University, Fresno. The purpose is to provide a format for a simple business plan to test the feasibility of a business idea.
