Starting a mobile food business, need business plan help.

Hello I acquired a mobile concession trailer. I want to sell wings. I have about 20 years of cooking experience. I just don't know how to do the business plan part. Does anyone has a plan similar to my idea or a template to get me started?

    I am not at home right now, so I can't send you mine, but I do remember finding some online. The one I used as a template was from an ebook I picked up at the library. I would think any library in the country would have a book about writing business plans. I used one for a taco truck and altered it to suit my needs.
    Search "food truck business plan" and grab one of the many templates that come up and start filling it in. The library book will likely give more detail about the sections and tips on how to gather the data. If you have any questions about a specific section, feel free to come ask. It will likely take more time than you think to pull it all together, but it's worth it (especially if you are trying for outside funding).
    You can shoot me an email: midnightsfrozentreats {at) gmail (dot] com
    and I'll send you mine when I get home.

    Google:  Business plans or Business plan template.
     
    I found a model from like the New Hampshire small business association and copied a huge chunk of it. In my opinion its mainly a pain in the ass formality.
     
    Look into a small business development center in your area. We have one here in Portland, Me. and they work for free.  They are funded through SBA grants or something, but they helped me out with reviewing and revising my plan and how to be creative in locating monetary resources. your city, county or state should have some similar resource.  They'll probably have plan you can use as a template for your own.
     
    good luck
