Executive Summary

Introduction:

In A Minute is a start-up quick service restaurant located in the downtown area. In A Minute is designed to thrive in a fast paced environment and cater to busy and health conscious individuals. The strategy and target market also reflects the overall philosophy and motto of the company.

Inspiration:

Over the last half of a century, American diets have evolved from the convenience and ubiquitous access to cheap junk food making poor diets choices the easiest to make. As a consequence, cardiovascular, cancer, diabetes, obesity, and digestive diseases have risen. Processed and nutrient-void foods have been implicated the cause of certain disease however adopting a healthy diet is widely accepted and proven to prevent and/or reduce the prevalence and morbidity of disease.

Our current society is crying for ease and sadly has made unhealthy lifestyle choices even more easier. Paradoxically, public awareness of healthy lifestyles have too increased but the link between ease and health, especially within the fast food industry is missing.
Our model will demonstrate that a healthy diet can be built into our quick paced diverse society and offer well prepared, interesting and tasteful foods.

Slogan/Motto:

The way it should be: food’s intent without compromise.
It is not fast food, but good food made fast.

...Exploring Consumer Behavior in the Context of Fast Food Industry in Dhaka City Nadia Farhana* and Shohana Islam** People in the Indian subcontinent have long been known for the delicious foodstuffs they prepare, serve, and eat. Times gone by suggest that they have used up a lot of their time, energy, and wealth to arrange their meals. But with the turn of the century, and changes in the socio-economic shape of the country, the scenario has changed; and people in Bangladesh, particularly busy city dwellers, now a day don’t seem to be having that much time, and energy, if not wealth, available to devote them for such passion for eating.

The Fast Food Business

...The fast food business is a thriving metropolis in America. According to David Zinczenko’s essay, “Don’t Blame the Eater”, fast food vendors can be found on every block. Zinczenko explains that fast food is the only viable option for the youth of today. He recalls how as a latchkey child, he had no healthy options since fast food was staring him right in the face, causing him to become obese at a young age. Contrary to his beliefs, healthy choices existed when David was a child and still exist today. Inexpensive alternative food sources are not so hard to find. In fact, many fast food restaurants offer somewhat healthy alternatives, such as Subway. If a person chooses to eat at McDonald’s or another fast food place, have a salad, forgo the dressing, and have water instead of a supersized coke. There are plenty of nutritious substitutions out there. Local food markets and grocery stores are not invisible. The same amount of money spent on a burger and fries can be used to buy veggies and fruit, a much healthier choice. Grocery stores sell items that are pre-made and pre-packaged such as salads, wraps, and sandwiches which list the nutritional data right on the package. Fast foods are a matter of convenience for the consumer. Why spend time cooking when you can get your meal in a bag? Unfortunately, this is the mentally of the youth of today. Zinczenko fails to recognize that no one forces a person to enter that fast food establishment. It is purely a matter of choice.......

McDonald’s, Burger King, and KFC are the first place that my mind would wander to when choosing a place to grab a meal to go. These three places are part of an industry that has been around for centuries. Fast food industries have been around for centuries. They have played a part in structuring our economy in the workforce and the market place. They also impacted us, the consumers, on how we eat and manage our budget. When it comes to employing teenagers, unskilled, or low skilled workers, fast food industries is the answer. Fast food industries are the top employers for low wage or minimum wage earners. To understand how fast food industries became one of the top employers for minimum wage earners, we first need to understand the industry. It does not require a lot of skills to work in one of fast food restaurants. Fast food industries focused on high volumes of preheated or precooked food that were served or prepared by an assembly line (Fast Food Industry Analysis 2013). This type of system gave fast food industries the opportunity to employ workers who are willing to work on minimum wage. For a long time fast food industries have been reaping the rewards of low wage earners. “Roughly 90%......

Finalized Business Plan: Opening a Mexican Food Franchise

...Finalized Business Plan for Alberto's Mexican Food Generic Strategy Alberto’s Mexican Food is the largest and most successful authentic Mexican Food franchise chain of restaurants on the West Coast. Found in 1975, and today has more than 90 national locations spanning through California and Utah. There is currently no authentic Mexican Food restaurants in my hometown of New Jersey with a business model like Alberto’s Mexican Food offers. For residents of New Jersey their only two options for Mexican Food is Taco Bell or small, sit-down type of family owned businesses which are few and in-between. Being from New Jersey and living in California for over 20 years it was obvious to me how authentic Mexican Food representation was lacking in my home state of New Jersey and it was my goal to change that by creating the first Albert’s Mexican Food restaurant in New Jersey. Source of finance will be raised through family members who are also interested in this business and want to see it succeed. Initial startup costs are expected to be between $319k and $534k (entrepreneur.com, 2014). The business will be located in Union City, New Jersey which boasts the largest Hispanic community in the state at 84.7% (nj.com, 2014). This Alberto’s Mexican Food will have 12 employees to run the business. Two managers, four cooks, four cashiers, and two dedicated drive-through delivery cashiers.

...Negative Impacts of Fast Food America is one the countries that have the most oversize population in the world and every day one of four Americans visits fast food restaurants. Fast food is usually packed with fat, sugar and salt which make it so unhealthy. There are many different reasons people go to fast food restaurants rather than eating at home. People eat at fast food restaurant because it is convenient, cheap, tasty and quick. We no longer live in the good old days when women would stay home to cook, clean, and take care of the kids. Women have invaded the work industry by taking over jobs that in the past only men would have, and now share those jobs with men. Nowadays, most of the women are really busy to go for grocery shopping, come back home, unpack the food, and then cook it; so they prefer to go to fast food restaurant like McDonald’s. Many families are choosing fast food restaurants instead of fancy restaurants in this bad economy situation, because fancy restaurants charge much more money than fast food and people would rather eat at those places with family only on special occasions. However parents know that the fast food doesn’t have good nutrition balance for their children. In addition, some people who don’t have families and they live by themselves visit fast food because of their busy schedule. They are too busy to cook.

Fast Food Business on the Rise

...who eat fast food often. Fast Food Business on the Rise Fast food chains around the world are doing quite well in today’s economy. “This year Americans will spend over $110 billion on fast food, more than they’ll spend on movies, books, magazines, newspapers, videos, and recorded music combined” (Americans Are Obsessed). As an employee at McDonald’s, I have taken well over eighty orders in a single hour before. These orders are often for the customer and his or her family and friends, and include many items. Although health risks suck as obesity, heart disease, and diabetes have been linked with their greasy foods, fast food restaurants are still extremely popular due to their availability, taste, and the price of their food. Fast food restaurants are one of the most available ways to buy food. Fast food restaurants are everywhere. In Pascagoula, Mississippi alone there are three McDonald’s all within a two mile radius of one another. Also many fast food restaurants are open late night and early mornings, or they are open twenty-four hours, seven days a week. Also in today’s time people have over filled their daily schedules, leaving it difficult to make it home, cook dinner, and then get enough rest for the next day’s events. The average working person might find it much easier just to rush to the closest fast food restaurant to buy dinner. Personally, I bring fast food home almost every night I work for my roommates, who love the food. Many fast food......
