2.4.2 Careful plan and strong will

The following is the content published in the Small and Medium Enterprise Net Magazine (edited and published by e-Small and Medium Enterprise Agency & Network Promotion Council, Small and Medium Enterprise General Corporation) on July 17, 2002.


The secret to success is a detailed founding plan and a strong will never to give up!

  This is the story of the European-style restaurant Bistro Papa (Bistro Company, Hiroshima Prefecture), which became a prosperous restaurant just two years after its opening. The owner, Mr. Kawada, said, “I didn't know what to do and how to open it, so I started with zero self-financing.” It was at SME College that Mr. Kawada learned how to open his store.

The 4-page business plan he first made was worked up into a 19-page detailed founding plan under the guidance of the instructor. Thanks to that, a loan of 12 million yen was decided by the Japan Finance Corporation. The remaining 4 million yen required for the opening of the business was borrowed from the parents of the couple (payed back the following year), and they were able to manage the long-planned opening of the business. The secret of Mr. Kawada's success can be analyzed as follows.

   Careful founding plan

The basis of preparation for opening and subsequent management is in a detailed start-up plan. Its execution led to the success of their business even when they started from zero self-financing.

   Strong will never to give up

It is important to carry out a strong will never to give up. In addition, it is also important to check with your own eyes in order to connect your business plan to opening a business.

Encounter with the instructor

It is also important to adhere to the teachings of the instructor. Furthermore, it is important to aim for more efficient management while receiving evaluations of past achievements from the instructor.


In my opinion, I cannot agree with the opening of a business relying on the money of others from the beginning. However, this is one example that there are people blessed like this in the world.
