On the day of your Recitation 12 November 12, 2014 or November 13, 2014 Submit
Team Report and Team PowerPoint Presentation (D2L dropbox) at 800 a.m. on the day of your Recitation. (A) Team Project Description Scenario You recently inherited your grandfathers coffee shop, which is conveniently located in downtown East Lansing. The cafe offers many different kinds of coffee and tea, a full service bakery, and sandwiches, soups, and salads.

The family recipes for the baked goods and soups are also stored in your grandfathers memory. Inventory is tracked in a note pad, along with employee payroll, and marketing coupons. The Cafe does not have a Web site, uses very little marketing except word-of-mouth, and essentially still operates the same as it did in 1952. You will own and operate your grandfathers coffee shop, taking advantage of business practices discussed in our ITM 309 class to increase profits, keep the business running, and bring the cafe into the 21st century.
