Bijou KanKan LLC.
Business Plan for 2014
Privately Owned Exporter
Owned and Operated by: Aminata Salisbury
Bijou Kankan provides customers with the finest quality of used clothing currently for over
two years. It is primarily a wholesale industry. It is purchased directly from local distributors in
the United States. The majority of the designated contacts are along the Florida panhandle.
This allows the finest selection of used clothing to be readily available anywhere. Currently, the
business is designated only to Guinea; however, the goals of this company are to expand the
sales to the neighborhood countries. With the expansion of this business it will bring forth
more commitment of the quality already received, and better prices to the public. The purchase
of large quantities will produce a path to distribute more savings towards the consumer. A
predication of a sale increase is at 50% over the next two years.
Bijou Kankan is working with industries that have over 22 years of experience, providing topnotch Closeouts, Surplus, Liquidations, Deals, Used Recycled Clothing, Second Hand Jeans,
Used Apparel, and Garments. Through our commitment, experience, and expertise we can
promise to offer “The Best Used Clothing.”
Bijou KanKan has Serious Suppliers of Used Clothing and we are looking for SERIOUS and
REAL BUYERS ONLY. All inquiries from interested parties will be qualified regarding their
position and financial ability to finalize the transaction in an expeditious manner, once all
terms are agreed upon. We will not work with “casual lookers” due to unprofitable, unpaid
time, and unrealistic endeavors.
When a SERIOUS BUYER walks into our warehouse store, our well trained sales person will be
working with them closely to ensure we are meeting their needs and giving them the best
quality of products on the market. The initial planned budget will cost $20,000 to expand the
Bijou Kankan will establish a business relationship with our customers that will last a lifetime!
The main objective for this wholesale industry would be to establish Bijou Kankan LLC as a
leader in wholesale and distributors world of used clothing’s to the public in Guinea. This is
all with an expectation to expand to the rest of West African countries. If successful through
this objective, this will increase profit by 50% on top of its current rate within two to five
years. Once this objective is deemed successful it will establish a used clothing/tires Discount
Club to retain customer loyalty.
The operations and mission is not only here to override all the competition in wholesale, but
to maximize the reputation throughout the entire area of Guinea with Bijou KanKan LLC
products, in order to ensure inspiration with every bale of clothing provided to our buyers.

4.1 Projected position for the future and challenges
To achieve and maintain a profit in an existing market and gain a reputation, the prospective
retail establishment must overcome the following hurdles: profits versus shipping cost,
advertising, staffing, and product choices. The regulatory barriers can include restrictions with
certain purchases and the business has to ensure that all legal documentaries and permits are
approved by local governments abroad, along with in the States. Other challenges only
include competition and determination of that by the style we choose to sale.
Again, high competitiveness among existing market participants and resulting low profit
margins will vary the first year caused in part only by the numerous amount of retail.
However, branding a name like Nike or BeBe can override this challenge, as it is the goal of
Bijou KanKan LLC.
4.2 Potential customers
Wholesale clothing will have a variety of options to offer, along with opportunities at an
endless rate to add on other products. The expansion of the store and in the wholesale
industry we welcome any distributors/retailers as clients.

and will be what Bijou Kankan LLC will be known for.
