Ohio River Blvd, Pittsburgh, PA 15202; it is owned and managed by Joy and Joe Rostan


since 2011. Joy Rostan has extensive knowledge and experience of gourmet coffee

BeanThru is a double-sided drive thru coffee kiosk featuring the most carefully selected


food and drinks. Joe and Joy Rostan are currently offering licensing or franchising


opportunities to Alice Ramsey in Erie and Pittsburgh PA and possibly more locations. Future Goals


BeanThru in Erie anticipates sales of about $100,000 in the first year, $250,000 in the


second year, and $480,000 in the third year of the plan. The company should break even


by the sixth month of operation as it progressively increases its sales. Profits for this time


period are expected to be approximately $30,000 in year one, $56,000 by year two, and


$70,000 by year three. The company does not anticipate any cash flow problems. Start-up Summary


BeanThru estimates that the total Monthly Start-Up Costs to be $30,000. Therefore, the


total Start-Up Costs for the Start-Up Period will be $175,000. BeanThru start-up


expenses are shown in the table below. The majority of these funds will be used to build


the first facility, pay deposits, and provide capital for six months of operating expenses,


initial inventory and other one-time expenses. Company Location BeanThru will open its first extension drive-thru facility in Erie PA; more drive-thru


facilities will be placed throughout the metropolitan area over the next three years.


The demographic and physical requirements for a Drive-thru location are:




Traffic of 40,000+ on store side.




High visibility road.




Easy entry with light if less than 30,000 cars.




Established retail shops in area. Market Analysis Sales of coffee dominate sales of hot beverages, making up 83.3% of the total hot


beverage market in the U.S. Coffee consumption is expected to increase through


2015 at an average annual rate of 2.7%, while tea consumption is expected to


increase through 2015 at an average annual rate of 3.1%. Positive expectations for


continued growth in coffee sales, despite its ?mature? product position in the


market, are due to the innovations in premium coffee products.


According to the latest National Coffee Drinking Study from the National Coffee


Association, 40% of 18-24 year olds are drinking coffee each day ? this is a


sharp rise from the 31% of this age group who said they enjoyed a daily dose of


java during 2010. This increase brought the consumption of coffee among this age


group back to its 2009 level.


Despite the economic woes, 37% of total coffee consumed was classified as


?Gourmet.? National Coffee Drinking Study This suggests consumers were set on


drinking good coffee and visiting their local coffee shop even in the face of an


uncertain economy.


Coffee Shop owners are also having some success selling the instant serving pack,


and there seems to be considerable upside potential: only 2% surveyed reporting


using the packs regularly, while 10% said they buy it infrequently.


Packaged Facts also notes an increase in the average price of coffee by 25% since


2007, owing largely to operators having to pass on commodity price increases to


consumers. This trend has eased after peaking in early 2011.


Coffee drinkers still outnumber tea drinkers in the U.S.: 183 million coffee


drinkers to 173.5 million tea drinkers. In 2012, combined sales of coffee and tea at


restaurant and drinking places is estimated to total $18.7 billion, according to


David Sprinkle, publisher of Packaged Facts. This February 2012 report also


notes strong increases in demand for specialty coffee drinks (cappuccinos, lattes,


Americanos and Macchiatos), with Macchiatos surging in popularity (as measured


by market penetration) by 50% since 2007 (from Data essential Menu Trends


Direct data). Competitions


Starbucks, Tim Horton, Brickhouse Coffee, and Panera bread constitute the competitors


in BeanThru market. However, BeanThru is entirely different from its competitors; not


only it will be the first double-sided, drive-thru coffee stand in Erie PA; but also offers


consumers a quick, convenient, fairly priced, quality refreshment, gourmet coffee that


will allow them to purchase the product and return to work, class, or other activity.


Therefore, BeanThru permits consumers to have new, better, and fast options than the


crowded slow moving competitors. BeanThru Marketing Strategy
