They were very helpful and showed me some locations that would be suitable for my Caf� including information such as: sizes of property, prices and previous uses. So my cafe will be located in City centre in Birmingham. The location will feature authentic Oriental style of decorations and furniture's. The Cafe will be equipped with a some sound system connected to a jukebox where my customers will be able to select their favourite songs for free. The cafe will be built up to the prototype specifications, clean lines, open and pleasing to the customers. The location was based upon the following reasons: * Community size of 1,010,200 people population within this area * High visibility - City centre, Birmingham is near the road where cars, vans and buses are travelling everyday. My restaurant is highly visible to travellers. * Easy access to parking. * Blue-collar worker make up the community. The place is nice and comfortable, so all the customers can relax and enjoy. Opening Hours Lunch Time Dinner Time Monday Closed Closed Tuesday 9:00 - 15:00 18:00 - 23:00 Wednesday 9:00 - 15:00 18:00 - 23:00 Thursday 9:00 - 15:00 18:00 - 23:00 Friday 9:00 - 15:00 18:00 - 23:00 Saturday 9:00 - 15:00 18:00 - 23:00 Sunday 9:00 - 17:00 Closed The Caf� will be open Tuesdays to Sundays from 9:00 - 15:00 for break fast and lunch time and 18:00 - 23:00 for dinner. I have chosen these opening times because I believed that these days and times are the real busiest point of the week. Opening the cafe for lunchtime and dinner time is good. There are many people in working class will go out for breakfast and lunch to drinks hot and cold drinks and eat bread which is sandwiches, and this is a good opportunity to gain customers. Opening this business at night has much better opportunity to gain customers. ...read more.


* Direct Marketing - the main target for promoting are the people in working class with family. I want to direct the promotion to them because these are the people that can be loyal to my caf�. * Sales Promotion - I am planning to offer some good promotions to my customers to earn their loyalty. Every end of the month, customers can have a free set of coffee and other beverage when they order worth �10 to 20 and up. This is a good incentive because it is attractive to them. * Public Relations - I can advertise locally on the newspaper so people will be more familiar on my cafe. Newspaper advertisement is a very effective way of promoting because all people read newspaper. * Sponsorship - this is an expensive form of promotion and not much included on my business promotion. However, my cafe can sponsor for charity works, small football teams and events that wants to be sponsored. This can also increase the familiarity of people. Competition My business has got quite a few competitors over different areas in City centre in Birmingham but my service will be unique I will be providing more hot and cold drinks and other beverage such as cakes and sandwiches and better offers than any other competitor. In task I will investigate the market and find out what the majority of people will want from their caf� shop and how many consumers they are willing to pay for the service I am providing. This information will be found out by questionnaires and once they have been filled in I will present the results in a graph to make them easier to understand and make better judgements. Competitive Strategy There are three major ways in which we will create an advantage over our competitors; * Product identity, quality, and novelty * High employee motivation and good sales attitude * Innovative and aggressive service options. ?? ?? ?? ??
