Café consultant: spending habits

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson  |  RAR

Test market demand and local competition for a café business. Survey customers representing market groups and record their preferences for menu items, opening hours, look and feel, and the amount they have to spend. Investigate similar cafés already operating. Identify the business choices most likely to succeed. For example, open an elegant café at 6-9pm serving steak, chicken and stir-fry dishes. Look closely at sales figures and make adjustments. This learning object is the last in a series of three objects that progressively increase in difficulty.
1. Students explore how retail profitability is related to customer demand and unit costs.
2. Students analyse sales results and adjust production volumes and prices accordingly.
3. Students test business ideas and respond to market feedback.
