The Community Owned Cafe Project
The OPRF School of Business Management students were given a challenge to work with Mr. Deno Andrews to create an entire startup package for Oak Park's planned Community Owned Cafe. The students were challenged to create a proforma, SWOT analysis, location search, operations design, product and service lists, and a social media plan. Mr. Andrews worked with the students in groups to create and pitch this plan to community members. The students learned how to manage different aspects of a small business while working together on this project.
