My honor's thesis consists of a business plan for a small cafe in the North Valley of Helena, Montana. The cafe will be called Back Cast Cafe and will seat 50 people. The owners of the cafe have a strong passion for living healthy active lives. They are avid outdoorsmen that love to fly fish. The cafe will have a strong fly fishing theme and a menu full of healthy eating options. Additionally, the menu consists of all home cooked meals. Supplies will be bought from local vendors, and everything will be prepared in house. Within the business plan for Back Cast Cafe you will see what the competition is, their marketing strategy, projected sales, financial statements, the full menu, and much more.
