About Optimus Business Plans

We are a full-service business plan development and consulting company. We treat all of our clients unique – because they are. At Optimus, we don’t have set prices and we don’t throw your project into specific categories. We understand that every business is different and we write every plan from scratch to ensure that your distinctiveness is emphasized. A business with no unique characteristics is likely to fail. A business plan that doesn’t emphasize the unique aspects of the business is nearly guaranteed to fail.

Our office is in Dallas, Texas – our region has been the fastest growing business environment in the United States for more than a decade. We have strong and growing technology, telecom, medical, aviation, and entrepreneurial industries, so Optimus has been well-positioned to help many new businesses succeed locally.  We also find it easy to work with our nationwide clients via telephone and online meeting technologies.

If you call us at 972-774-4402, you may notice that your call goes directly to a project manager. We don’t employ salespeople. Your call goes to a project manager every single time. We believe that if we are going to provide our clients with a customized and personal business plan, then we should be there to have a personal conversation every time our clients call – from the moment a client inquires about a service until the business plan is complete.

There are a number of business plan companies out there that write business plans.  As with any industry, some really do great work, while others focus on profitability and quantity over quality.

Optimus assigns the best writers and financial gurus to your project based on your industry and business model. Our writers have a vast array of knowledge from numerous industries and know how to write a business plan that gets results. Get to know our people a little bit:
