1.0 Executive Summary


The Boulder Stop will be a combination coffee shop and rock climbing gear store strategically located near one of the Pacific Northwest's premier climbing spots. Our main strategy is to develop The Boulder Stop experience as part of the overall rockclimbing activity. We don't intend to be just a store, but rather a rockclimbing cultural center for regulars and visitors to Smith Rock, Oregon.

It is the purpose of this business plan to lay the foundations of the company's vision, philosophy and strategy to the firm's principal investors and debtors and to align the various elements of the company to create a coherent system of sustainable customer satisfaction and profits.

The Company

Sagebrush Sam's - "a steak buffet," unlike a typical restaurant, will provide a unique combination of excellent food at value pricing with a fun and entertaining atmosphere. Sagebrush Sam's is the answer to an increasing demand. The public (1) wants value for everything thatit purchases, (2) is not willing to accept anything that does not meetits expectations, and (3) wants entertainment with its dining experience.

In today's highly competitive environment, it is becoming increasinglymore difficult to differentiate one restaurant concept from another. Sagebrush Sam's does this by being the only buffet concept that features mesquite-grilled, USDA-choice sirloin steaks, cooked on our display grill, for one low price. We will be serving top quality, 21-day aged steaks thatare hand-cut daily on the premises and seasoned to perfection. Our grill will be out in the open and loaded with steaks cooked to the proper degree of doneness that our guests request. With our high dinner volume, there will be no waiting for a steak since we will have the grill stocked with every degree of doneness. No other national chain has tapped this market. With red meat (in particular, steaks) increasing in demand today, we believe that this feature will ensure our success.

This plan is prepared to obtain financing for the initial launch of this concept. The financing is required to begin work on kitchen design, architectural plans, manuals and recipe books, site selection, equipment purchases, and to cover expenses in the first year of business. Additional financing will need to be secured for the two subsequent units anticipated in July, 2002 and January, 2003. Our positive cash flow will help to offset some of this burden.

The financing, in addition to the capital contributions from the owners, will allow Sagebrush Sam's to successfully open and maintain operations through year one. The initial capital investment will allow Sagebrush Sam's to provide its customers with a value driven, entertaining dining experience. A unique, mid-scale, innovative environment is required to provide the customers with an atmosphere that will induce middle America to bring family and friends to dine and socialize. Successful operation through year three will provideadequate cash flow to be self-sufficient in year four.

Sagebrush Sam's will strive to be the premier buffet restaurant in the local marketplace. We want our guests to have the total experience when visiting Sagebrush Sam's. Not only will our guests receive a great meal, they will also be provided with a fun atmosphere.

We will want the dining experience to be as pleasing to the senses as it is to the palate.

Our main focus will be serving quality food at a great value. We will feature a large selection of freshly-prepared food, most in full view of our guests. We will feature 100 items daily that are full of flavor and zest at an unbelievable price!

Customer satisfaction is paramount. When approached by a customer with a request, our motto will be, "Yes is the answer; what is the question?" We will strive for broad appeal. We want to be the restaurant of choice for everyone: families and singles, young and old, male or female.

Employee welfare will be equally important to our success. All will be treated fairly with the utmost respect. We want our employees to feel a part of the success of Sagebrush Sam's. Happy employees make happy guests.

We will combine menu variety, atmosphere, ambiance, and friendly staff to create a sense of "place" in order to reach our goal of over-all value in the dining/entertainment experience.
