business might help the local community?

amusement facility near Aizu-wakamatsu station. To make a city that is full with
people can lead a bustling community.
2.There are many high schools and college(for example, like university of Aizu and
junior college). If we make a place where stretch out young people who full of
energy, Aizu-wakamatsu city will be more active.
3.That place will be a amusement facility where all people can enjoy and this place
will expand the wave of exchange with various people in this area.
B. Ideas for launching this business. Identify 5 innovative things you might want to
do for developing this business.
1.Provide main services at a flat rate. This is convenient for customers and staff.
This service is uncommon for other companies.
2.Open it 24 hours a day, every day of the year for all people can enjoy anytime.

pool, eating facility and bar in this facility for various people can visit.

ahead and found in front of Aizu-wakamatsu station. This is for the students who
do not have car or motorbike.
5.Make a plan that set fee of various services based on time and set up free time for
each plans to entertain customers.
C. How should your business reach out to the potential customers? What might be
some of the ways you will advertise your company.
We should expand our business in some small countries. This industry has been fill
in some big cities. So I think we cannot success in these cities. But in small towns,
there are no many amusement facilities. This will be a chance to us. The place does
not matter, and the demand of people is the same anywhere in this industry. So our
advertisement will to be say "found a company". This will be a very good
advertisement in countries. I went ahead and explain another opinion. It is about
place in town. If we found a facility in center of a small town, this business must be
a good company.
D. How should you advertise your products? Develop a proper advertising strategy
to market your product to the local community. Write a slogan for your
Our slogan is "To be a center of town". To be a center of town, we must make
some explicit advertisements. As I state above, it will be a nice advertisement if we
place a shop in the center of a small town. This will attract many customers
attention. And this is a typical strategy in business. Another common
advertisement is to make a brochure. This should raise name value of our
company. Make a web site is a better advertisement too. In this network society.
There are no difference between a big city and a small town. Everybody linked to
internet. It is a chance for us to insert a advertisement in this infrastructure.
E. How could the University of Aizu assist your business? Explain
Our business have a customer enjoyable, relaxed and reduced stress. For that
purpose, we make a amusement park, and offer a customer various services. Our
business is the business for young people that is to say high school student and
university student. In particular, our business have the University of Aizu student
relaxed and reduced stress. That connects to studying more hard. A stress is an
obstacle to studying. If the University of Aizu student study hard, the quality of the
Univesity of Aizu student improves. Then, the quality of the Univesity of Aizu
inevitably improves more than the present quality.

employ people, do you need furniture, computers for your store, etc?.

place to build a amusement park. For building a amusement park, we need a lot of
money. Next, we need many talents for developing our business. Moreover we need
to gather excellent talents. The success rate of a business is dependent on talent's
we need various facilities for offering a customer various services. In bowling
