Setting up a small or medium sized business.

Introduction

GCSE Business Studies Coursework: Brown coffee Lounge. I have chosen to start my business as a sole trading coffee shop in the private sector, which provides my customers with coffee, latte, cappuccino, mocha, cocoa and French delicacies such as croissants, plain au chocolate, apple lattice and gateau. The distinctive feature of our service is our shop provides warmth, shelter, food and drink. This idea came about through my passion for coffee. Brown coffee Lounge launches with its first coffee shop located in the very prestigious Liverpool Street EC2. Brown coffee Lounge will offer city business commuters and tourists a totally new style of coffee shop - one offering uniquely flavourful coffee and a comfortable, upmarket environment at which to socialize, relax or work. Variety: No other coffeehouse in the area will provide the range of coffee drinks, tea, cocoa, juice and other products that Brown coffee lounge does. Location: Brown coffee Lounge will be located in the prime section of Mile Square in the heart of the shopping and entertainment part of London. Brown Coffee Lounge's locations are designed for high volume year round, with revenues and profits to match. City of London council granted planning permission for a medium sized food retail unit in Liverpool Street. Expansion: Assuming this store is successful, it will be the first of a chain of Brown coffee lounge shops located in markets that have similar demographic profiles, significant traffic by the store, year-round tourist activity and a sizeable amount of commuters, in two years we hope to become a PLC in order to raise much more capital and diversify. ...read more.

Conclusion

Demand and Supply The demand is the amount of meals that consumers are willing to buy. The law of demand is that as the price increases the quantity demanded will fall. If meals are sold at a very low price people can afford the product, but can also make the company run out of stock and money very quickly. The supply is the quantity of meals we are willing and able to make. The law of supply is that as the price increases, the quantity of meals supplied also increase. When the price is very low, we are unable to make a profit and so the supply is small. At high prices we can make a profit and so the supply is large. We would like to sell at a high price in order to retain profit and consumers want to buy at a low price so we have decided to reach a compromise, when agreed we have reached the equilibrium, in this case the equilibrium for our meals are at £15.
