Executive Summary
Business Plan is a discipline that tells us the proficiency of the market operations and strategies of overall corporate sector. A Business Plan has been assigned to us by Introduction to business Instructor as a Final Project. We have a plan to open an ice cream Poular, our basic need is to provide a good quality of our product to customer, we are launching a new flavor for kids, younger¶s, teen agers and as well as for sugar patients who are specially restricted to use any type of sugar stuff so therefore we have introduced an ice-cream which is sugar free but when we tasted it. It tastes like Sweet. And by this way we think that we will create a good impression on the people by serving them. This will also have an effect on our income because before this there was no such type of ice cream in the market. Launching of Magalicious ice cream; this plan will throw light on the

introduction of the business, industry, and competitor and customer¶s analysis, Company¶s SWOT analysis, its marketing goals and objectives, marketing strategy Pricing, product/service/brand tactics, sales and distribution tactics communication Tactics, its budget, implementation and control, contingency plan etc. The basic purpose of conducting this research is to enhance the practical as well as analytical knowledge about the marketing knowhow. With the help of this knowledge we prepared a comprehensive marketing plan having all essentialities like Product, Pricing, Place and Promotion Strategies. In fact we fulfilled all the key points and rations of this marketing plan acquiring the prosperity of knowledge and skills And finally positive outcomes of plan and the conclusion,

Introduction to Business
Magalicious ice cream(ice-cream with different flavors), which we are offering are most wanted by customers because they will get satisfaction after consuming it, our ice-cream flavors are of high quality, reasonable price. We have introduced new flavors in Pakistan such as bubble, jelly, and special ice cream for sugar patients which has no sugar but tastes like sugar. Our target market is not only confined to the kids but also to young and teen-agers .We will sell the ice-cream in scoops.

Idea:
Our idea is to build our own chain of Ice-cream Poulars, available for customers in different atmosphere at any time.

Innovation:
We want to create a uniform and more earning business of Ice-cream Poular. We will provide more facilities on cheaper rates. ³We are the lions to rebel with any profit seeking institution in matter of market survival.´

Current Market Situation:
Pakistan is an important territory of Asia. It is the Junction of Central Asia, Middle East and South Asia. It is strategically very important so there must be a mature marketing environment. But its environment is less aware as how much it should be. Now in Pakistan PKR 110 million are spent as a Fun Money. In Pakistan people have a little tendency to spend on ice cream. They take Carbonated Beverages, Juices and Snacks as to make a fun. PKR 8 million are spent on ice cream annually that includes all the Branded and Unbranded ice cream. Wall¶s has 68% market share and rest of the 32% includes all the Branded and Unbranded ice cream. Now there is plenty of awareness about Ice cream as a fun and ice cream also has a psychological effect on the mind of people that it makes the somber mood happy. The entrance of Omore is the Eye Witness that Ice cream industry of Pakistan is making progress day by day and Wall¶s is leading the market. It¶s in a strong Position among its competitors having a lot of innovation in national and international brands. In fact it is far away from competition. [Magalicious ice cream] Page 7

MARKET SITUATIONAL ANALYSIS The market of ice cream is growing but it goes to boom stage especially in summer and trend goes down in winter let¶s have an idea about current market situation of ice-cream industry.

Market Definition Our target market is not confined to children but any individual of any age group can consume and use it, mostly people ranging from 4-45 years are our target customers and are part of our target market.

Size and Scope of the Market As we will be operating in twin cities having huge population so our product will be having wide scope and growth opportunities and a huge market our target market ranges from age 4-45. Market Attractiveness We have decided to attract our market by following ways Product We are offering quality product and services seldom given by any other competitor around the town. Our specialty is new flavors and sugar free ice cream. Price We are charging the a bit low prices as compared to our competitors do so it¶s likely that customer will switch towards our¶s just for try.

[Magalicious ice cream]

Page 15

Place We are selling our product at the places where customers feel convenience to buy (twin cities and attached villages).

Promotion In the beginning we are only going to have big boards at the face of the shops and ten sales men on bicycles for selling as well as for promotion of our products product and the brand name is displayed on the pack Inshallah when the business will flourish then in future we are going to introduce van services and retail outlets at different points of the twin city. PEST Analysis: There are main four factors  Technological  Political  Economic  Socio-cultural We discuss in those topics as follow 

Technological Because of too much advancement in IT technology is changing every day so it is important for us to have the new technology to cope with time other wise competitor will beat us and will be far back from them so it is important to have latest technology according to requirement and to compete competitor. 

Political Due to political and legal instability in Pakistan Market of the product may go down because of increase in general price level (inflation) and due to increase in oil prices.

[Magalicious ice cream]

Page 16 

Economic It is more likely that when oil prices shoot up and there will be inflation in the country people may not have purchasing power to buy the things because ³more money chases fewer goods in case of inflation´ 

Socio-cultural Because of the fact that the Pakistani youth is shifting towards the western culture (Paradigm shift) so we have to consider the improvements in our products with the passage of time to meet the requirement of changing culture.

Competitors There are many different ice-cream manufacturers around the town but our strong and healthy competition is with these following: 1. Scoopy Ice-cream 2. Echo Ice-cream 3. Rahat Bakers 4. Savor foods 5. Chaman Ice-Cream
