develop a distribution system for a new local gourmet coffee shop
The paper has to be related to starting a local gourmet coffee shop.
Brief description of the new company is as follows:
I am choosing to pursue is opening a local gourmet coffee and snack shop. The idea is to focus on gourmet and specialty coffees such as lattes, mochas, cappuccinos, etc. using high-quality ingredients serving the highest quality coffee and snacks in a trendy, relaxed atmosphere. In addition to coffee, I intend to offer customers pastries, small salads and sandwiches which will use natural, locally sourced ingredients. Products will be available for consumption on the premises or available for takeout and take-home options for items such as coffee beans and merchandise. Merchandise will include items related to the business such as a variety of coffee cups, French presses, coasters, stationary, and apparel which will all bear the company logo and be part of the marketing plan.
If you don’t have access to the Trident library, write using other sources and I can find something to add.
It is time to determine how to make your product or service available to the consumer. Using your readings and at least one article from the Trident Online Libraryâ€™s full-text databases (such as Academic Search Complete, Business Source Complete and/or ProQuest Central), develop a distribution system.
Select either direct versus indirect distribution by writing about the pros and cons of both methods. (Research support is required)
Needs of Target Market
Analyze your target market’s needs. Explain what you know about your target market and what they want from a channel of distribution. (Research support is required)
Is your product/service conducive to digital distribution? You may wish to research a competitive product or service to see if it has a strong digital presence. Or you can engage in general research about going digital. (Research support is required.)
Since you are engaging in research, be sure to cite and reference the sources in APA format. The paper should be written in third person; this means words like â€œI,â€ â€œwe,â€ and â€œyouâ€ are not appropriate. For more information see Differences Between First and Third Person.
Reference page and cover page does not count toward the page count.
