Business planning class offered by EDC group

PORT TOWNSEND — Economic Development Council Team Jefferson will hold an eight-week business planning class beginning this coming Thursday.

The course, for current and potential business owners, will be held at the EDC Team Jefferson office, 2410 Washington St., from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursdays through Nov. 8.

It is designed for individuals who are thinking of starting a business but who are not sure where to begin; those interested in developing a solid business plan; or business owners looking to enhance and refine their current plan and business practices.

Topics will include operational planning, understanding your market, financial management and building a marketing plan.

Cost of the class is $250.

A number of local small businesses have expanded as a result of lessons learned in past classes, EDC Team Jefferson officials said.

Said Dos Okies restaurant owner Larry Denison, a previous class participant:

“This was the best thing we’ve ever done for our business, and our business is higher this year because of it.”
