LP Gas (cooking) gas is lucrative, sustainable and competitive business in Tanzania and Africa. The good news is that entrepreneur with quality products, a comprehensive marketing plan, industry knowledge and sufficient start-up capital can win competition in this business.
Here’s sample business plan that can be used to raise capital, write concept notes, and write proposals. And also can be used as a guideline to craft your LP Gas business plan on your own without hiring an expensive consultant to do it for you.
There has been a substantial raise in the consumption of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) in the last ten years. The annual LPG consumption in Tanzania has grown from 5,500 metric tonnes in 2005 to 145,800 metric tonnes in 2019. Furthermore, with continued economic development in Tanzania as well as increasing awareness in the use of LPG as the best alternative to firewood and charcoal, the consumption of LPG will grow to a significantly high level in both urban and rural areas. And with the Tanzanian government’s ambition to scale up the use of LPG across the nation, it will lead to increase in LP Gas demand and supply to hotels, homes, factories, boarding schools, army camps, mines as well as petrol stations.
Although competition in the LP Cooking gas business has increased over the past few years in Tanzania, with our effective marketing and supply strategies, building close client relationship as well as providing complementary services, the newly-established LP Gas retailer like Quick Gas can still be profitable and assured of recovering its entire investment.
Quick Gas Limited will be a newly-established LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) distributer/retailer in the Kasulu District of the Kigoma Region in Tanzania to cater to the booming LP Gas (cooking gas) demand.
Quick Gas Limited will be duly registered and will obtain a trade license to operate as a Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG; popularly known as cooking gas) distributor/retailer in Tanzania. Quick Gas Limited will be equipped with a strong team with both technical and business background in managing all aspects of an LP Gas business: organizing, financing, marketing, promoting products and services, and solving technical and organizational problems.
