The Snack Bar - Team 2

The Mini Road Show was our first event in EMRS. As there are only 2 teams this round, Team 1 was assigned products from MSC, while we were assigned with products from Cheers. The event was held at the Linkway outside McDonalds on 5th June 2012 from 10.30 a.m - 3.30 p.m. Our theme for the event was "The Snack Bar", as we sold mainly drinks, sweets and snacks.

Our OIC was Fathin, Jeffrey was the Logistics IC and Jasmine the A&P IC.

We started off determining the most sell-able items in Cheers before submitting the stock request list that we want to sell at the roadshow.

After which, the team brainstormed on the theme that will fit our booth best and finally decided on the theme "Snack Bar". A&P spent a total of $15 for the materials to decorate our booth.

The day before the roadshow, we planned on how we should display our items so as to ensure that we would not spend too much time on displaying the items on the actual day. 

We started setting up our booth at 9.00 a.m, and successfully completed the set up just before 10.30 a.m.

Business was slow when we first started out, but it showed a positive change during and just after lunch break. To attract more customers from all the schools other than SBM, our team members took turns to do mobile selling in all the schools. Thanks to our teammates' effort, mobile selling contributed significantly to our sales at the end of the event. 

The event ended at 3.30 p.m, and we were very satisfied with our achievement.We also learnt that we cannot attained this success individually, but as a team we were able to make it possible. As this was our first road show, it was very tiring, however as people always says "No Pain, No Gain", we were tired but at least we had some experiences and fun throughout this roadshow.
