Who hasn't tried one of Gisella's famous, mouth-watering cupcakes? Or even the delicious bites? Several dessert businesses can be found all around the FDR community; yet, most, if not all of them belong to senior students. So, for our IBG project, we started out with a problem. The issue was that most of the tasty food businesses would be annulated once the 12th grade students left FDR, hence an idea emerged.
As Arianna, Santiago, Emilio, Ciro and I were sitting down one Thursday afternoon, our minds fled to the typical conversation topic: Food. We tend to talk about this when we have nothing else to discuss. We were dialoguing about how sweet businesses basically made up the community and we got to thinking; Why not start our own business? We clearly had the motivation, we had the time, what else was missing? As soon as our creativity sparked up, we began brainstorming.
We thought about several names, color schemes and logos, yet none seemed to actually profile our business correctly. After several iterations we got to this first draft of the logo and slogan; also accomplishing the task of our organization: To spread joy through FDR, one cookie at a time. Munchies: Not your typical cookie business. Up to now, we have began baking recipes and getting feedback on the products, making modifications and updating our business plan. Overall, I believe we are going through the right track.
I truly believe that this IBG has a lot of potential, we can even think about continuing and expanding throughout our remaining high school years. Regardless of the profit made, I do believe that there is a lot of room for learning and truly getting some hands on experiences at business, marketing and even cooking areas of expertise. We are thinking on contacting a few experts on the subject in order to really make Munchies a remarkable success.
