On Monday, we had a class day to continue working on our personal business and get ready for our trade show coming up next week! We came up with a list of thank you’s and investors to send invitations to for the trade show. We decided on a group of us to go to the radio station for a Civic Interest on May 6 and called to set it up. We talked about getting flyers out and other ways to tell the community and spread the word of the trade show.
Tuesday was a site visit to Rosati’s. We talked with Marie Jacobs, the franchise owner, and Lyndsay Gordon, her right hand. They talked about the business of Rosati’s and showed us how their register system works. They showed us how they kept track of their alcohol and food sales. After that we got a tour of their register system and how they take orders. Then came what was possibly everyone’s favorite part, making pizzas! The Rosati’s visit was a lot of fun and gave us a whole new perspective on the restaurant business in Crawford County.
Donnie Wilson was our visitor for Wednesday, talking to us about his journey as an entrepreneur. He owned his first business at the age of 17, the same as quite a few of us! He talked to us about the ins and outs of his businesses, the challenges he faced, and how he pulled through and became the successful man he is today. He told us about how he came to shift between the two different businesses he had come to own: a pump truck company and then an oil spill cleanup manufacturing company. The journey into Midland was his next topic of discussion.
Class work day on Thursday! We wrote out envelopes for our trade show invitations. Finding addresses for everyone was the most difficult part, but hopefully these will encourage more people to come out and support us! The last twenty to thirty minutes of class we folded and taped table toppers to put out at Monical’s and Rosati’s and then delivered them while trying to dodge the rain, a tricky task for some!
The trade show is quickly approaching so Friday we decided the layout of the Community Center and where each of our booths would be. We made layouts of our individual booths so a map could be made for the trade show. After that, some of us worked on getting our businesses ready and a couple of others worked on putting together our annual report for this year.
Overall we had a very busy week preparing ourselves for the trade show so hopefully we will see you all there!
