Marketing plan – korean food truck
You will complete a marketing plan for a new business of your choice, as if you are starting a small business together in the hospitality industry. The marketing project is separated into two components: final report and the presentation.
Apply the marketing knowledge you learned in class to your project. This will help you develop a strong marketing plan, and will also give you a higher grade.
Stay focused: ONLY present directly relevant information in your papers and presentations.
Be as specific as possible. For example, instead of saying the prices will differ across order sizes, give specific numbers (1: $10, 2: $18, etc)
