Week 4 Assignment 2 :


PROMPT

Write a proposal for the location for a new Rainier Chocolates store. Use the notes that you took from the meeting and the Readings about the four locations to help you. Choose one location and also recommend a special design for the chocolates connected with that location.

Use the following outline for your proposal. Write 1 page in the text box below or paste from a document from your computer.

1. Introduction

2. Background

3. Findings

4. Recommendation

5. Outcomes

6. Closing

The purpose of this proposal is to introduce the results of the last comparison for Rainier Chocolates new store and to suggest a location.
Background
As we discussed in our last meeting, there were introduced four locations for opening our new store.  Comparing costs and availability, the reports shows that the airport location has more advantages than others. The place is available and cheaper, in addition, foot traffic is huge. On the other hand, the location of Green Lake has its advantages.  But feet traffic is definitely smaller than 42 000 000 people at the airport per year.  
 
Findings
I have gotten the detailed results of the comparison. I will show the highlights, if we open a new store next month at the airport, we could get at list a 300% increase in sells by the end of the year. A store in the airport requires a new design for our chocolate package and for the store.
Recommendations

Based on the results of the comparison, I do propose that our new store be opening in the airport.  
Outcomes 
If we open the store in the airport, our revenue should go up to 10% a year more in their airport store than a store outside the airport.
 
I would be happy to discuss this with you further and answer any questions, so please let me know.

Best regards,
Jessica Fernandes.
