I. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

INTRODUCTION

Garden Fresh is a food establishment dedicated to offering healthy food options to all Filipinos who would like to start and/or maintain a healthy diet, especially those concerned with lowering their risk for developing lifestyle diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer. Garden fresh is an eat-all-you-can restaurant that offers a unique range of healthy food options from salads and soups to sugar-free desserts and beverages.

THE OPPORTUNITY

The opportunity derives from several converging trends. The Lowe Counsel whose clients include Alaska Milk Corporation, Ginebra San Miguel, Inc., Johnson & Johnson, Phils. Inc., Red Ribbon Bakeshop, UNILAB and Unilever Philippines identified key trends on consumer behavior towards food consumption:

1) Filipinos are rediscovering local food,

2) Consumers are into health and wellness eating as well,

3) Science is now applied to food, and

4) Sustainable and local foods are gaining popularity.

INDUSTRY OVERVIEW

Like every other country the food industry has also flourished very well in Philippines. Food and live animals contributed the largest among the commodities that were transacted throughout the country in the fourth quarter of 2010, amounting to PhP34.73 billion (29.1%). Also, being mostly agricultural land, the country has a self-sufficiency of 100%. The Annual Survey of Philippine Business Industry listed 87,770 hotels and restaurants in 2003. 85,482 of which were small to medium-scale, with an Average Total Employment of less than 20.

TARGET MARKET

Garden Fresh will initially enter the market with one restaurant in a busy area of Quezon City, it being the largest city in Metro Manila. After the establishment and projected success of this one restaurant, and it will expand and open a second branch in Makati, another busy city where a large part of the residents are of middle to high socioeconomic status. For the time being, projected expansion will be limited to Metro Manila only.

COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

1) A service that improves the customers' overall health, prevents the development of several diseases, and prevents the development of complications in those who already have these diseases.

2) An affordable and interesting approach to an often stereotypical diet.

3) A wide range of healthy options.

II. PERSONAL MISSION-VISION

I am Josemari Juinio, a simple man with simple dreams, even stereotypical.

It would, of course, be even better if I would have, by then, built my very own business.
