No, you do not NEED to share your entire plan with a property owner. If you are planning to lease the property, you will likely need to let them know the intended use in general terms. However, if they are insisting on a business plan, and you relly want the property, you should have them sign a confidentiality agreement before you give them any details. Keep in mind, though, right now it is a tenant's market, and there are likely many locations available to you. Use that to your advantage.
