Coffee Distribution Business Plan
Executive Summary
The Coffee Warehouse is a new business providing high-quality, full service distribution of coffee, specialty beverages and beverage-related supplies to coffee houses and espresso stands throughout the Spokane and Northern Idaho market.
The principal owners are Steve and Jennifer Smith, whose combined experience brings office management, high levels of customer service, and over 20 years in distribution and sales management. At this time we are seeking additional equity capital to compliment our own investment and are seeking to arrange a bank line for inventory and receivables financing. We have firm commitments to distribute several high-quality new age beverage products, and have verbal commitments from independent retailers throughout the Spokane and Northern Idaho market to carry our product. We plan to distribute our first products within 30-60 days of finalizing financial arrangements.
Sales projections for The Coffee Warehouse are estimated to begin at approximately $2,229,000 the first year, increasing to approximately $2,558,000 in Year 2 and approximately $2,936,000 in Year 3. Our net profit is projected at approximately $283,000 the first year, increasing to $406,000 by the end of the third year of operation.
Distinguishing characteristics of our business will be the combination of management experience, sales and distribution experience, high-quality, innovative products and exceptional customer service. In particular, what really sets up apart is that we are the ONLY full service distribution company servicing the coffee and specialty beverage industry in the Spokane/Northern Idaho market. In addition, The Coffee Warehouse has an exclusive contract to distribute a new, groundbreaking product that would enable us to gain immediate access to a majority of the potential customer base.

...BURUNDI COFFEE EXPORT COMPANY By Benjamin TURIKUBWAYO Business plan April 2010 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY What is the product ? Burundi coffee is unknown at international market. This is not because coffee growers cannot produce a good quality; it is simply because the coffee produced is not processed to meet the market standards. Burundi coffee company will work with coffee growers to produce specialty coffee by using high quality standards in the processing of the coffee cherry then market it to roasters in the US and Europe.

Distribution Plan and Pomotions Strategy

...Section 5: Distribution Plan and Promotions Strategy In determining my distribution strategy, I have decided that I would leverage by using stores in different regions, however, the stores would have to accomplish the same strategy but for the demographics within it. Although selling online is a good option, I highly believe that my product would not leverage well. I’d hire a sales team that is exceptional at selling directly to suppliers as well as door-to-door. Having face-to-face contact with an “expert” of the product or service is great, because not everyone has access to the web. I recommend low cost provider strategy. This strategy helps strive to achieve lover overall costs and then using that low cost advantage to attract a wide range of buyers with a lower priced product offering than that of my competitor(s). I’d also seek focused strategy based on low costs, because this will allow me to concentrate on a narrow buyer segment and beating my rivals by having lower costs, this being in position to win buyer favor by means of a lower priced product offering. Lastly, best cost provider strategy. I am reaching to strive to achieve a competitive advantage over my competition by developing the capability to incorporate upscale product attributes at a lower cost than that of my rivals. It allows my company the ability to give customers more value for their money by underpricing rivals whose products have similar attributes. Best cost provider strategy is a hybrid......

...Sales and Distribution Plan Remember, the primary goal of the marketing plan is to get people to buy your products or services. The Sales and Distribution part of the marketing plan details how this is going to happen. Traditionally there are three parts to the Sales and Distribution section of the marketing plan, although all three parts may not apply to your business. 1) Outline the distribution methods to be used.

In a direct distribution channel, the product or service goes directly from the manufacturer to the consumer. In a one stage distribution channel it goes from manufacturer to retailer to consumer. The traditional distribution channel is from manufacturer to wholesaler to retailer to consumer. Outline all the different companies, people and/or technologies that will be involved in the process of getting your product or service to your customer. What are the costs associated with distribution? What are the delivery terms? How will the distribution methods affect production time frames or delivery?
