We create a company named Chisty, which is combined Chinese resturant and grocery store. Need to write a business plan: there are 2 parts need to write (the Powerpoint in the additional materials is the guideline, Section 5 and 6 should be write). 1. The economics of the business (include that need to fill out Excel “updated profit and loss statement”), which uploaded on the addtional materials.) (this section writes 2 pages). 2. Marketing plan (2 pages also) the word document in the addtional materials “concept” and outlinw are the introduction and information of my project. You need to base on those information to write marketing plan. Try to not use resource from internet.
Chisty will be a Chinese food mini mart with a restaurant-buffet section. Chisty will sell a variety of delicious Chinese food which includes typical Chinese snacks and tasty cooked Chinese food from different cities in China. Grocery items will be available in a small grocery in addition to a prepared foods section. In the prepared foods section, hot foods will be available in buffet style. A smaller sized store (800 sq.ft) will be used.
Preliminary, Chisty plans to open one market in Coral Gables. It will be located near the University of Miami. The University of Miami has a large population of Chinese students and lots of other people who love Chinese food. Our target market is Chinese food lovers.
Why Chisty ?
The market for Chinese restaurants and Chinese food continues to grow. But, there is not yet a place in Miami that combines the restaurant and market together. Chisty will do just that! The price of cooked food meal from the buffet section will be $5.98/ lb. Snacks and groceries will have a wide range of prices depending on the item. The cooked food will be served near the cashier on buffet tables. Customer can load up a box with whatever food they want. The box will be weighed at the register. There will be a very small eating section to allow customers to eat at the store if they choose to. Chisty will also offer delivery service. The atmosphere will be filled with Chinese culture through music and artwork. The environment will be comfortable and relaxing.
Chisty will have a “City of the Week” promotion. From Monday to Friday every week, Chisty will have a breakfast special and three lunch specials from a particular Chinese city. The city will change every week. All of the other regular foods will still be offered in addition to the specials. In the eating area, a television will play relaxing Chinese programming, either popular Chinese movies or television programming. This will keep customers entertained while they eat. Chisty will also have specials for the Chinese holidays. Chisty will sell the representative food of the holiday and many free samples will be available for customers.
