There are several free sources that can help you research and develop your business plan - one is Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs) and the other is SCORE (score.org). Both are funded by the SBA and are there to help you.

I disagree with any kind of business plan software. It makes it look like a "canned" approach. You need to realize that bankers look at these all the time and they will realize that it did not come from you. Don't plagiarize any 1 else's either. It needs to sound as if it is coming from your heart. My best advice would be to contact SCORE in you area and they can provide you with the materials and actual face to face advice on building a bankable plan. I have used them before and they were invaluable. And the best part is they are free.
