PROPOSAL

Unit 16-17, Brookvale Trading

Estate, Moor Ln, Witton

Birmingham, B6 7AQ

 

Dear Mr. Mendez

Herein lies the proposal for business development of Uncle Ron's over the next 6 months.  

During our recent dialogue last month, I have managed to access some critical frameworks that needs to be implemented in your to successfully streamline the Uncle Ron's operations thus achieving sustainable growth and increase in revenue. The Uncle Ron's business model falls within my area of expertise, as I have spent the last fifteen years of my career working with similar business models, and have developed a wide knowledge base and understanding, of what is required to make this kind of business a global success. 

In this proposal I will outline why you should immediately consider implementing Operational Efficiency, New Product Development and Brand Development. 

 

Best,

Craslyn Benjamin

UNCLE RON'S -CURRENT SITUATION

 

Uncle Ron's existing business model has the capacity to increase its factory production and grow revenue, however, the business requires operational restructuring and implementing of key business development strategies to transform the business to achieve growth and relevance in the market place. There are no Standard Operating Procedure (SOP's) to systemize the production nor proper marketing and communication to support the business growth.

 

The Uncle Ron's brand has the potential to scale and expand its development to other customer base across Europe and the United Kingdom by offering more specialty and ready meals under its own brand. 

At present, Uncle Ron's production and distribution metrics needs to be optimized to achieve a minimum 95% order fill rate as the required resources are available to achieve this target. 

HOW I CAN HELP?

With over 15 years of experience in supply chain management, international trade, and working with top food companies globally, I believe I am poised to take the Uncle Ron's business and brand to the next level. 

I have global experience working with international food service companies, such as the Pacific Coast Fruit Company (Oregon & Seattle), and Grace Food International, in delivering strategies to support business development, marketing success and product innovation . My experience in this industry has given me first hand training on how to transform businesses for lasting success.

 

My strategy involves physically integrating myself into the organization to get a first hand experience of the current  processes and the overall operation.

 

By understanding the Uncle Ron's business model  and plans for the future, I will  be able to effectively tailor solutions to solve the problem of inefficiencies and drive sustainable growth.

MY PROCESS

Summary of my Four Step Process

Monitor and Control

Strategy Development 

Product Development and Innovation

Marketing and Communication

Black Background

First, I dissect and analyze the business to understand goals, constraints, assumptions, and scope. Once that process is completed, I then work on implementing strategies for sustainable growth.

The solution for Uncle Ron's requires the implementation of a 4-step tactical approach to renaissance the business. These approach will establish a blueprint for the business allowing for real time transformation that will propel the brand to another level.

STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT - STRATEGIC ACTION PLAN

I will start by developing an action plan for implementation. This plan will be triggered by a strategy discover that allows me to sit with core members of the Uncle Ron's business in order to fully understand the business and to outline the objectives to be undertaken over the next 6 months.

The plan will focus on specific goals and strategic initiative to be executed in order achieved planned objectives. Developing the strategic action plan will compose several plans of actions to include brand positioning, the new product development and innovation, business model framework and efficient production management.


 

PRODUCT DEVELOPEMNT AND INNOVATION

Uncle Ron's has a strong foundation of being in the market for over 30 years however in order to grow the brand need to introduce new SKUs into the market through new product development and innovations from the Uncle Ron's brand offering. This means an introduction of new products with key formulations to strengthen the brand presence in the market. This will then increase production throughput and the overall revenue for the business. Two to three new SKUs will be developed and introduced as new product in the market. 

 

MARKETING AND COMMUNCATION STRATEGY

I will develop a tactical marketing plan to renaissance the entire Uncle Ron's brand presence to drive sales. The key elements of this marketing initiative will include execution of the following:

1.  Develop and Launch New website

2. Develop and launch the brand on social media 

3.  Rebranding of Uncle Ron's - the business and product offerings

4. Launch marketing growth strategy to increase sales and overall business revenue

 

MONITOR AND CONTROL

Ensuring that that operations/production metrics, inventory management and growth strategy is working is critical. I will be working closely with the team to ensure that control strategies are maintained, and results achieved.
