Target Market The tea, pastry, and retail clothing markets have the capability of appealing to a wide range of demographics…..the target market primarily of women ages 18-60, but goes beyond this group for its different products and services. Most of our clients enjoy an eclectic experience, are urban dwellers, and have disposable income to spend on great tasting libations. They also include mothers, business professionals, and socialites. The 18-60 group is an easy fit for the array of product/ services we offer. Why not create an establishment where refined women could congregate and enjoy an afternoon of tea and crumpets?
Target Market Cont’d… Inspired by English royalty, the theme corresponds to the style and sophisticated image the target consumer feels. This setting acts as a reflection of the target consumer and their lifestyle. Our consumers have a great sense for taste and superiority of goods and/or services. Tea is a trend among many cultures that brings individuals together to create a comforting and delightful social environment. With this in mind, it is no wonder our consumers are generally gregarious and intellectual individuals. Our large consumer group creates a fun and pleasant environment for mothers, daughters, and even grandmothers to enjoy!
Retail Format The integration of this boutique and eatery gives Grandionce Crumpets a competitive advantage over other tearooms and boutiques that may offer similar products, but cannot provide the same consumer experience. By establishing this type of venture in an urban lifestyle-shopping center like that of Shops of Legacy, it can properly target the consumer who enjoys this type of hedonic and utilitarian combination.
Consumer Experience Everyone needs sustenance and clothing, and Grandionce Crumpets provides these products on a level that is quite superior to those of other retail stores or restaurants. The interior aesthetics of the store create a hedonic experience with its pastel walls, large paintings, regal purple couches, large velvet covered chairs, decorative area rugs, golden and crystal chandeliers and ornate crown molding. This interior creates great excitement among clients and transports them to an authentic British tea parlor/shop. Enormous windows on all sides alleviate some of the richness of the interior and allow for a soothing look into the courtyard outside. This exterior space allows for a more natural and tranquil tea drinking experience with its lush landscape and picturesque fountain.
English Inspired Double-Decker Bus A double-decker bus, decorated in a quirky English style…. On board the bus is a very English tea room on the lower level. The bus tours the shopping center as well as other parts of the city. This idea is designed to increase awareness of the brand to both loyal consumers and tourists alike! Grandionce Crumpets
