Creating a Business Plan

FormSwift’s 2015 Summer Scholarship asked college students across the country to come up with a sample business plan for one of five categories: Bakery, Restaurant, Salon, Personal Training and Trucking. We chose the best sample business plan(s) from each category, and one overall scholarship winner.

Below you will find the winning sample business plan(s) from each category. Each sample includes a free downloadable infographic and outline of the core elements of a successful business plan.


In 2015, FormSwift hosted a sample business plan contest. Students from all over the world submitted their best ideas for bakeries, restaurants, salons, personal trainers, and the trucking industry in the hopes of winning a $1,000.00 scholarship.
