Step 1: Review the APA basic outline format and an example of its use
Note that your business plan outline will need to…
-Show the hierarchical relationship or logical ordering of information, using the APA basic outline format.
-Be formatted according to APA guidelines, double-spaced, in Times New Roman 12-point font, with one-inch margins on each side. -Include proper citations of references and quotes. All sources used must be included in the Reference section (see step 5).
Step 2: Create an outline of your business plan starting with the idea from the attached business proposal and references. A total of 6 scholarly references must be used, and 10 total references.
The outline will be a set of sections/headings (and sub-headings) that identify the important elements of the business plan to launch a Yankee Candle Store in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, Spain. Note that you will also provide supporting detail in Step 3.
-Executive summary
A one-page summary of your whole plan, typically written after the rest of the plan is completed.
-Company descriiption
Including the basic business model that the Yankee Candle Store will use as well as a business vision and mission statement.
Also include the organizational structure of the business and why your chosen structure will support operations in a foreign country.
Market analysis
The rationale for choosing the target market includes estimated market size as well as the target markets within in Las Palmas, Spain. Also include a competitive analysis of your industry to address competitors’ strengths and weaknesses.
Also include an analysis of cultural, legal, and political factors that will impact your launch.
An explanation of what you will sell (scented candles & accessories) and the most important features of the products.
The rationale for your product choice. While an actual launch would include a more extensive explanation, you are only required to briefly cover the product for this assignment. -Marketing plan
The product launch strategy includes competitive strategy, entry decisions, and intended mode of entry.
A comparison of the differences and similarities between your domestic market and launch market and how the differences support or challenge your strategy.
How you intend to get the word out about your business, and what strategic decisions you’ve made about things like your pricing strategy. Discuss any cultural implications associated with your marketing plan.
-Logistics and operations plan
Everything that needs to happen to turn your raw materials into products and get them into the hands of your customers including where your product will be manufactured.
Identify some of the differences between domestic and global logistics and supply chain management issues that will impact your project. -Financial plan
Financial management considerations include Spanish policies, and economic considerations for the launch, including foreign currencies, tariffs, and overall foreign market exchange considerations (unemployment, disposable income, etc.).
-Cash Flow Statement (to be created in a spreadsheet and pasted into Final Business Plan Outline)
Itemize your expected expenses and income over an initial 5-year launch period. Create your own numbers but ensure they are realistic.
-Write a Conclusion that summarizes your plan and seeks approval from management to move forward.
Step 3: Populate your outline with supporting details
Per the Step 1 example, your outline should be more than just heading and sub-headings; it should include supporting detail.
For each sub-heading, you should provide at least two supporting details (points).
Complete sentences are acceptable but not required. No paragraphs

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
