Hey everyone, I'm in the midst of writing a business plan for a small distillery with tasting room. I have a solid image of what I want to do and approximately the startup size, but I have no data to create a sales forecast. I could ballpark numbers, come up with a couple scenarios, but even then I'm just spitballing it.
For those that have dealt with this issue, how did you develop a sales forecast? I tried contacting the state division of liquor control to get my hands on statewide sales data, but they've been unresponsive.
Any tips or advice? TIA!
