Webinar 5: Planning Your Business 

With a change in store ownership comes the need to develop a business plan. This plan will help guide new owners and store managers into the future, as well as promote the business to potential partners and funders. There are many things to consider: what is the market like, what costs should you expect, what offerings could you provide in addition to grocery? Join NetWork Kansas, the Kansas Small Business Development Center, and the Rural Grocery Initiative to learn how to get started on your business plan.
