2. Company Summary

Company Ownership

JJB is a bakery and coffee shop equally owned and managed by two partners. These
partners represent Sales/Management and finance/administration areas, respectively. The
partners will provide funding from their own savings, which will cover start-up expenses
and provide a financial cushion for the first months of operation. A ten-year Small
Business Administration (SBA) loan will cover the rest of the required financing.



JJB is incorporated in Kigali City, very close to universities and businesses. This serves as one
of the best location for a bakery as it attracts a lot young college adults as well as employees

from companies around the bakery is strategically located, bringing in a lot of tourists who visit
museums or attend events at the nearby arena.
We will convert our existing location to a complete store front as we have identified a
seller for another bakery site where we plan to move our production operations. This
will be our main production unit (PU) for the bakery and for corporate customers.

5. Market Analysis
Market Analysis

Potential Customers
sellers from Kigali



























Market Segmentation
My Business will focus on its target market, Sellers from KIGALI and other sellers from
neighborhood markets, through direct selling via its various relationship and referral networks.
In addition, a certain amount of investment will be made in advertising to promote my product
awareness. Direct selling is far more effective in closing sales as well as in terms of sales and
marketing costs.
My company will use the tool of product demonstrations to close sales. Product demonstrations
are a critical step in the sales process. This is the opportunity to prove the good quality,
freshness and safety of our products, educate the potential client, and establish a relationship.

Target Market Segment/Strategy

We will cater to corporate clients within 10 mile radius so we can prepare and deliver
just in time to ensure fresh food.
We will cater to storefront and restaurant customers during normal business hours
offering breakfast, lunch and snacks. We will target employees of businesses and
students of educational centers within a 5---mile radius. We also plan to attract customers who
visit the arena nearby.
The dominant target market for JJB is a regular stream of local residents. Personal and
expedient customer service at a competitive price is key to maintaining the local market share of
this target market.
Our target customers mainly consist of the higher income consumers, and the top of the middle
class. Although this is a smaller group of consumers to appeal to, we hope to position our-self as
a business in the downtown area or along the bypass in Marion where there is easy access to our
selected consumers. We expect our customers to be of the working class, people with steady
jobs, and possibly families.
Need: There is no other bakery in Marion besides the small sections of the bigger supermarkets:
Meijer, Marsh, and Walmart. The portion of our business that will attract our customers is not

only our products, but also the experience that consumers will gain when they walk in the door.
By keeping the wide variety of available products

Market Trends
Service Business Analysis
The retail coffee industry in the U.S. has recently experienced rapid growth. The cool marine
climate in southwest Washington stimulates consumption of hot beverages throughout the year.
Coffee drinkers in the Pacific Northwest are finicky about the quality of beverages offered at the
numerous coffee bars across the region. Despite low competition in the immediate area, JJB will
position itself as a place where customers can enjoy a cup of delicious coffee with a fresh pastry
in a relaxing environment.

Competition in the local area is somewhat sparse and does not provide nearly the level
of product quality and customer service as YYC. Local customers are looking for a high
quality product. They desire a unique, classy experience.

Buying Patterns

6. Strategy & Implementation

JJB will succeed by offering consumers high quality coffee, espresso, and bakery products with
personal service at a competitive price.

SWOT Analysis
No branded bakery food product which sells exclusively Cake and Pastry. It provides varietyof
cake , Bread, cream roal, toast, and Cake formed by different Flavour which give thecustomer
an Indian taste.

There is a risk in starting this business because it will be first of its kind.
There is no direct competitor as such but we can consider local player of the particular area
asour competitors because they are selling same product with low cost. If talk
aboutInternational player Britannia also provides some same product, Britannia is also
wellrecognized brand among the customer and its sales are maximum among the various
productsin India which is a major threat.
There is a large customer base, as India is having maximum number of vegetarian
peoples.Indians spend around 51% of their personal expenditure on their eating habit.

Marketing strategy
Pricing Strategy
Our overall pricing strategy will be based on competitive benchmarking. We will track our
production costs consistently on a per item basis to ensure profitability. Our competitive pricing
strategy will help make our high quality, healthy products accessible to
local residents of the Dudley community. We will also be sure to offer a range of products at
varying prices so that more people can find something they can afford

Promotion Strategy
In addition, we will also offer indirect price discounts to those living in the area. Given that
residents will be more likely to visit the Bakery Caf on weekends, we will offer special
brunch products on Saturday that will be priced more affordably, such as breakfast sandwiches
for $3.50.
In addition, the Haley House Bakery Caf will offer anyone living in the neighborhoods 02119
zip code a Haley House Zip Card. Any customer with a zip card will be able to take advantage
of monthly Dudley Appreciation Days, when the Bakery Caf will offer specials, such as a
complimentary cup of the Bakery Cafs lemonade with the purchase of lunch.

Business competitive edge

JJB's competitive edge is the relatively low level of competition in the local area in this

8. Financial Plan
JJB expects to raise $110,000 of its own capital, and to borrow $100,000 guaranteed by the SBA as a ten-year loan. This
provides the bulk of the current financing required.

Break even Analysis

JJB's Break-even Analysis is based on the average of the first-year figures for total sales by units, and by operating
expenses. These are presented as per-unit revenue, per-unit cost, and fixed costs. These conservative assumptions make
for a more accurate estimate of real risk. JJB should break even by the third month of its operation as it steadily increases
its sales.
