Social Media Marketing Proposal
National food service chain providing late night delivery in college areas..
MSU Store located at 603 E. Grand River in East Lansing, Michigan with a 5 mile delivery radius.
Current media materials include a website with online ordering capabilities and a Facebook page.
Utilize a moon-shaped cookie logo and the slogan “Baked Right Late Night”
East Lansing is a college town, 58% of it’s inhabitants between the ages of 18 and 24.
Customers are primarily low-budget as they are students working only part time.
During seasonal switch (summer and long university breaks,)their market depletes significantly.

Location: Small store on a side street with a lack of visibility
Awareness: New (within 5 years) and lack of awareness is compounded by the ever changing population (new students
each semester and old students leaving)
Customers: Low income and as MSU is a “party” environment, there are often deliveries to students who have been
drinking or at parties.
Communication: Constantly shifting population makes communication hard over time
Delivery: Delivery creates it’s own specific challenges (time constraints and lost profits with mistakes)
