R.E.A.D. (Read Eat and Discuss)
ABOUT THE COMPANY
R.E.A.D. is a book club that allows you to meet new people who may share interests with you and discuss different things you have read in a group. There is no specific list to read from, you can read a regular printed book or an e-book. Each meeting will take place in a building owned by the company, so you don’t have to worry about going to a stranger’s home or just meeting online. There is also an employee there to help keep the conversation going. At the meetings dinner is provided. There are meetings twice a week, and you can choose to only go on some days and not the others or go to all the available meetings. Each meeting you attend costs $23.
Anyone, young adult or adult in the Quad City area, who loves to read and share about what they love to read. Customers will have many different books recommended to them, and they will recommend things to other customers. Then later customers who are continuously coming can become facilitators of their own R.E.A.D. meetings, which then they can keep part of the money made at their meetings.
ADVANTANGES OVER THE COMPETITION
To make a profit of 20% and cover everything else there would have to be around $3000 in sales per month, based on actually looking at buildings for rent in the Quad Cities area. Every week we should make around $700 and if there are two meetings a week, each meeting has to make around $350 and if fifteen people go each meeting the price has to be around $23.
