Seun Okin biscuit (the company) is a Nigerian cookie; this cookie start up business will be dedicated to serving the university of Maryland eastern shore students and faculty. I came to a conclusion of selling this Nigerian cookie (Okin biscuit) on UMES campus, for my campus cookie business to be successful; I decided to develop a marketing plan. My objective is to make Okin biscuit popular among the students in this school and to sell a minimum of 100 packs per day by the end of each semester. This product is aimed at students in the university and since this is a foreign cookie, it would be a new taste and new product to a new market place. Okin biscuit can be served any time during the day, before or after a meal. My expectation for this product is to have a high demand because this is aimed at anybody who is interested in trying something new products. I am hoping it would have a demand of 25-50 packs per day within the first semester and after the first semester, hoping for a demand of 45 † 65 packs per day. My marketing budget for the first year is $1250
