Result: client had a fully functioning tamale factory with 3 revenue streams- catering, wholesale and retail- with a fully trained staff and systems to execute on the growing demands of the business. A viable and measurable financial plan to achieve goals and growth. A marketing plan that increased business revenue and increasing brand presence delivered to the target markets of each revenue stream.
