In order for Tim’s Coffee Shoppe to be successful, Tim will have to be sure he has a consistent and reliable supply of coffee beans.
Research coffee bean producing countries on the Internet. Choose one country, along with a grower, that would have the greatest supplier potential to import beans for domestic sales with your distribution firm.
Write your original, double-spaced expository essay in a minimum of 4 pages (which includes a Title and a References page) and use 12-point Times New Roman font. Your citations (minimum one (1), and maximum two (2) short scholarly citations) and references must follow APA format and citation style.
Checklist: Address the following items in an expository essay and APA format and citation style:
•Choose a country and a grower for your supplier of coffee beans that you (as distributor) can then sell.
•What are the economic advantages of dealing with a vendor from this country?
•Does the country have environmental laws that align with those of our country? What are they?
•Will there be a marketing advantage by divulging the source of the coffee beans? Why or why not?
•Will sourcing the beans from the supplier you choose affect Tim’s bottom-line or not? Discuss your reasoning.
Use a minimum of one and maximum of two short scholarly citations and references.
