Washington State is short of high quality coffee shops and bakeries that provide fresh, delicious coffee.
JJB offers a wide range of espresso and coffee products made from top quality imported coffee beans. JJB provides coffee and espresso products that are tailored to each customer’s needs.
Because Washington has a cool climate for eight months out of the year, hot coffee products are very much in demand. Hot coffee products are also in high demand during the four remaining warm months. The morning hours are the busiest, with little activity during the rest of the day.
Although there is a lot of competition, the quality of the product and customer service in the local area are not nearly as high as JJB. Customers are searching for a high-quality product in an enjoyable environment. They want an exceptional, classy experience.
JJB is managed by two partners. These partners represent sales/management and finance/administration areas, respectively. They will use their own savings to fund the start-up and provide financial protection for the first month.
JJB expects to make the following sales during the three-year plan. JJB is expected to be profitable by the fourth month as it steadily grows its sales. These profits are expected to increase slightly over the third year, while being relatively low in the first and second years. We project $140,000 investment by the founders.
