Target Market
        Sure Shot Coffee Shop’s target market includes professional and working class
citizens who will appreciate affordable, good quality coffee on their way to work. We
feature a drive thru for convenience and open at 5am for early birds. Environmentalists
will be attracted to doing business with Sure Shot because we are environmentally
conscious, we feature fully compostable cups and lids, serve organic foods and only clean
with environmentally friendly cleaners. High school students from nearby Lincoln High
School can buy coffee and snacks before and after school as well as meet at the shop for
studying. Local employees from nearby businesses will want to get coffee in the
morning or get a sandwich on their lunch break. Our coffee attracts customers of all
ages, young and old can both appreciate buying quality coffee that supports a good cause.
        Sure Shot Coffee Shop purchases their coffee beans from Pura Vida Coffee. Pura
Vida Coffee is made from 100% Arabica beans which gives off a fine and delicate taste
with half the amount of caffeine compared to commercial coffee type, Robusta.
        Pura Vida Coffee is Fair Trade certified and organic certified. Fair Trade
certification means that they preserve the natural use of coffee beans without the
genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Fair Trade also means that the farmers are paid
a fair wage to provide for their families and communities. Organic coffee helps the health
of our customers and the planet by reducing the exposure to toxic chemicals. This method
protects the famers’ health and preserves the ecosystem for future generations.
        The coffee beans are cultivated amongst the forest trees which makes it easier for
a bio-diverse environment by providing a natural habitat for forest animals and reducing
deforestation and erosion. This shade-grown method also creates a more complex flavor
to the coffee. Pura Vida Coffee uses only the Organic Water Process method to
decaffeinate their coffee. This process helps filter out the caffeine but also prevents the
flavors of the coffee from dissolving.

        We are going to keep our coffee prices low on drip coffee and specialty drinks, in
order to compete with Starbucks and Tully’s and our price plan is significantly lower than
their menus. We will sell bags of Pura Vida coffee for $9.99 for people to use at home or
at the office, continuing our support of Fair Trade coffee. Also, we plan to sell specialty
sandwiches and baked goods, such as cookies, brownies, and pie, made in house. The
sandwiches will be $3.95 and the baked goods will range from $1.25 to $2.95.

          An ideal location for the business would be the Ceccanti West Retail
Center located at the intersection of 38th and Pacific Avenue in Tacoma, Washington.

location, there is minimal competition surrounding the complex and there is daily traffic
along Pacific Avenue estimated to be 44,000 people. The space provided also has an
optional drive thru that our business will utilize in order to capture customers too busy to
leave their cars.
