Macrobiotic catering and shop in Paris !
THE CORE BUSINESS: MACROBIOTIC CATERING AND SHOP
Our team has decided to buy a macrobiotic shop in Paris. The seller is retiring and wants to transfer the business to somebody who will continue with macrobiotics.
Our market study showed that customers are interested in macrobiotic catering to takeaway, especially when they do not know much about macrobiotics. People want also to be able to order online and are interested in delivery.
Our aim is to adapt the offer to customers’ expectations and create differences with competitors.Thus we will develop 2 categories of activities:
- Catering with a healthy vegan-oriented offer. Dishes will be cooked on the spot with fresh seasonal food, without dairy products nor sweeteners.
- The sale/advice of macrobiotic products, supported by a new Internet website.
We regularly organize cooking courses and workshops to transmit the teaching we have received. Macrobiotic cooking is our passion.
- Flora for marketing strategy and finance
- Izumi and Yuriko for cooking and unique recipes
- Maria for photography
- Jeremy for a simple and easy e-commerce website
WHY IS THIS SO IMPORTANT TO US?
Our aim is to offer homemade healthy tasty food. Macrobiotics has transformed our lives, and has helped us to overcome difficulties. We want to let you experiment with macrobiotics yourself.
