BUSINESS SUMMARY
A. About the Company
Throughout the last few years, the market for cupcakes has
greatly expanded. No longer are they only a fun birthday party treat
that can be purchased at any grocery store or bakery since they have
expanded to become a multi-million dollar industry with tremendous
designs to adapt to any occasion. For Heavens Cupcakes joins this
specialty market with something new and different to offer its
customers. Not only is our product adaptable to a wide variety of
occasions and specialty events, but also we expect to grow
tremendously over the next few years due to our adaptability to our
clients demands.
The company, For Heavens Cupcakes! will introduce a different
variety of cupcakes to the public. Since cupcakes have become a food
phenomenon, the company added a little twist. The company will be
launching delectable black forest cupcakes. Black forest is mostly for
cakes, but this gave the company the idea to launch the product, it
aimed to show the customers that black forest flavor is not for cakes
only but it also is for cupcakes.
The product will be surely enjoyed by the target customers since
the company offers a lot of promos in the business. The price of each
black forest cupcake is Php20. When bought by package four, the price
is lessened by Php10, it will be trimmed down to Php70. On the other
hand, when bought by package of six, the price is Php20 less and when
bought by a package of twelve, the price will have Php25 discount. The
product will be of worth since it is affordable and delectable at the
