...in house catering run by a chef The government by 2020 wants all schools to be more sustainable. I believe a chef will fully implement government recommendations by offering full support in education by being the link from the kitchen to the classroom. We all understand that the future of our planet is in the hands of the next generation. All schools should be at forefront of sustainability though education. We have a number of advantages here at Eltham Hill, a new kitchen built for the needs of the school along with a newly appointment food teacher who has engaged students in food related topics. These two areas could form a key role in the development of both food education and running of a busy restaurant that covers its own costs. By having sustainable systems and educational programs linked together the students have a chance to shape our local community. Working with a chef could give students the chance to explore different educational pathways giving teachers, and students the chance to develop outdoor active teaching in growing ingredients, waste management and farming that can all be linked back to the restaurant and classroom. I feel a chef who can value students will engage them and educate them in the importance of eating healthy home cooked food at school. The students will see them as a member of the school in lessons, student meetings and lunch times and make them want to eat and experiment with food. A summary of the impact on education by a catering......

...Start-up Sample Business Plan According to statistics from the SBA (Small Business Association), the last five years have propagated the largest entrepreneurial surge this country has ever seen. We doubt that even the current recession will change this picture. Each year in the US, we see about 750,000 new companies started, with over $26B in investments from angel groups and venture capitalists. Yet according to the same data sources, many of these companies fail in the first year, and only 1 out of 100 startups who apply get funded, due to failures in addressing the items listed in the introduction. This is the huge opportunity that is being addressed by Startup Professionals. Starting a new business can be both complicated and confusing—even for experienced entrepreneurs. Working through the maze of financial requirements and the multitude of other hurdles that must be met to make a business operational is a formidable challenge, especially for those with minimal prior business experience. At the same time, in many small communities new businesses are an essential component of a successful economic development strategy. Restaurants play an especially important role in many small communities. In addition to providing a place to obtain food service, these establishments can be a focal point to facilitate an exchange of ideas and an opportunity to build social capital. Consequently, having a restaurant on main street benefits both the owner and the community. Table of...

Since its establishment in August of 2011, JJC Products has provided its customers with products catering to the burgeoning aftermarket smartphone accessories industry at various retail locations throughout British Columbia as well as online. Research has shown that in 2012 alone, aftermarket smartphone accessories were on pace to generate $20 billion in revenue out of the $36 billion that comprises the entire mobile phone accessories industry. This number is expected to continue to grow as smartphone penetration just recently passed 50% of the total mobile phone market in the United States. Market researchers predict that this number will grow to anywhere between $38 billion to $50 billion by 2017 as smartphone adoption continues to expand.Specifically in Canada, smartphone usage grew from 33% in March of 2011 to 48% in 2012 and, as Canadian trends are very similar to those in the United States, smartphones are expected to become increasingly popular.

Business Plan - Catering for Kids

...the Chambers School. After completing the 9-week curriculum, students are placed with a local food service business for a 60-hour practical training where they can continue to develop their skills. Currently, the culinary arts program is available to five students per 9-week school term, or approximately 25 students per year. Students enrolled in the program are selected because of their sincere interest in the culinary field and their excellent attendance. After a successful first year of operating the culinary arts program, we are looking to expand the program further. By developing the program into a full day program of academics and culinary arts training, we can develop an entrepreneurial curriculum that will allow our students to gain an insight into the operation of a small business. Specifically, by launching a lunch box catering business (called the Catering For Kids), we could offer our students the opportunity to gain valuable work experience for which they can earn both school credit and a stipend, acquire entrepreneurial business skills and achieve a real sense of accomplishment. According to the National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial training can help foster in students a sense of vision and personal responsibility for their future, creating a beneficial effect on self-esteem and outlook. However, major challenges face Catering For Kids in the future. These include the need to: Fund the program, including possible expansion......

There is a total of 10,000 shares of common stock issued. Wilma and Jack each own 3,000 and the remainder are retained by the company for future distribution. In addition they have loaned the company $25,000 of their own money for research and start-up costs. A suitable site for the first restaurant was found last month and lease negotiations are in the final stages. The location will be on Deacon Street, just outside Harvard Square and close to a dense population of the target market. When the lease is signed there will be three months of free rent for construction and in that time the balance of the start-up funds must be raised. With that phase completed, Abonda Restaurant can then open and the operations phase of the project can begin.
