Introduction We are offering ten different kinds of fresh ice cream to our customers which are not currently available in Bradford market and that might even be the case in United Kingdom. “Merry Ice cream” bring you a quality fresh ice cream that will explode a refreshing taste in your mouth. We will be opening our first shop in John Food Street, Bradford because we have found through research that it is unserved. The fast life that has been observed in west is where people don’t have time in between work and their daily routines and they are in a rush, we have seek an opportunity to provide them with fresh fruit ice cream on the walk, in the busiest of markets in Bradford. The John Street Market is surrounded by corporate offices, shopping centers, malls and other markets. Company’s vision “To provide best quality fresh ice cream all over world” Company’s mission “To be the leading brand in fresh ice cream over United Kingdom in 5 years” Brand slogan “Happiness in your Fist” Industry Analysis Bradford is a place where fast life is observed on the role and tourist are attracted from all over the world, because it is relatively cheaper to buy in rather than London. We want to build repute in such a city and make this ice cream a strong part of their culture that it offers to locals and both foreigners. It is considered the best market according to the revenue and the profits. Famous food markets in Bradford are John street market, Oalster, Giant food store Bradford plaza, Oasis food market, Pearl Centre, Liberty market, Bradford Food street, commercial market etc. And the famous food brands in Bradford such as Emilly food chain. For that we are deciding to launch Merry Ice cream in John Food street market Bradford, because according to our research there is no Ice cream producer in John food street market. And the daily visitors or potential customers are over 5000 per day. This outcome has encouraged our intent to a great deal. This market is famous for shopping as well for food. John street market is usually visited by every socio economic class living in the area. Our goal is to achieve profits by neutralizing happiness through fresh quality ice cream, which changes moods and makes people happy to savor it. We ought to deliver a state of the art, fresh, quality and quick made ice cream amidst the busy John Street Market. The idea is to focus on delivering love and happiness and taking people out of tough, miserable and hectic routines in work life. They get a chance to get their taste buds a refreshing flavor, which is at the same time natural as the essence is taken directly from fresh fruits. We are not only conducting business to make profitable earnings but ensuring that we contribute to society in terms of quality eatable ice cream and the emotions attached to it. Long ago people used to create unique selling proposition for their brands, while we work on the latest version of it, we sell it through emotional selling. Making colorful packaging to attract kids and younger people as well as facilitating the oldies to travel back into youth and rejoice their memories. There is high barrier to entry in such market where it is hard to get noticed for a new product line in market which is not frozen ice cream that is available on any retail outlet on the go. But we are making our point with strong emotional branding to turn potential customers into loyal attachment that are long lasting and in turn fruitful for the business itself. Positive response is bound to good communication, getting right messages together and exposing them on the crucial times. We can compete with other brands by staying pure and caring by our product line and gain a feeling of trust within customers. We cannot offer an ice cream parlor due to lack of resources in start but we look forward in generating revenues to achieve such endeavors in near future. We have clinically worked on the hygiene of workplace and keeping the environment friendly for workers and the customers to avoid any unforeseeable complaints. We use pamphlets for promoting in vicinity and letting people know we have a treat waiting for them. On different occasions we have planned to offer variable discounts in packages bought form us. We further work to develop family size packages too.

If the current business plan fails to meet the expected performance then we look to revisit the brand and come up with different communicational plan for rendering product to mass distribution. We do not preserve ice cream as it is a fresh ice cream, but if the demand is high then we will move to sell frozen ice cream also.
