Does anyone have a sample business plan they wouldn't mind sharing? I've googled free sample business plans...it comes up as free and then, when I get into the website, there's usually some sort of charge. I'm trying to write a business plan and I just wanted to see a sample to make sure I'm including everything and using the right wording.
did you check here?
a wealth of info, including templates, and all of it free
There's a lot of great free info and samples for writing business plans. Here's a few helpful sites.
(Since all business plans aren't exactly layed out the same way or include all of the same info, I'd recommend printing out all of the pages that you've found most helpful then it's easier to refer back to examples that you like while working on your plan and building it from a combination of those that included the most or the most useful.)

I am in the very early stages of putting together a business plan, I need some advice on how large of a retail space do I need to house a bakery. Does anyone have any suggestions regarding square footage?
