Beverage Machine Rental Business Plan

Market Analysis Summary

Although the name is Margarita Momma, we want to stress that this service is for everyone who plans a gathering. Every household, business, church, or event is a potential customer. From weddings to barbecues, from Lampasas to Harker Heights, the fun and convenience catches on like wildfire as everyone at the event enjoys a delicious frozen drink.

Some examples of excellent rental/concession opportunities are:

  • Rabbit Fest
  • 4th of July
  • Hood Howdy
  • Taste of Cove
  • Weddings
  • Club Fundraisers
  • National Night Out
  • Downtown Party
  • St. Patrick's Day
  • New Years Eve
  • Family Reunions

Currently, at these types of events, customers have a choice of purchasing soda or snow cones. And, while delicious in their own right, there is something missing from these two choices. We have an excellent alternative; Margarita Momma will provide a quality beverage, with real fruit flavoring and few preservatives. These drinks are far superior to the taste of a snowcone or a slurpee, and more nutritious than a soda.

4.1 Market Segmentation

Margarita Momma will target all segments of the population--children, teenagers, and adults--through rentals and concession stands at local events. This is truly a beverage people of all ages can enjoy. It is a fun, affordable alternative to the familiar party beverages that are available. Our market segmentation will focus more on areas of service than on potential customers. The only limitation would be how far the company is willing to travel and how much area can be covered through our advertising plans.

4.2 Market Analysis

Although this is a lucrative business, there are no competitors for Margarita Momma. This is due to the fact that there are no other companies in the targeted area which provide similar services. Margarita Momma has the advantage of being the first to market these services.

4.3 Target Market Segment Strategy

The margarita machine rental business has been EXPLODING in Texas for the last 15 years. Now this fun, profitable business is sweeping the country. In order for Margarita Momma to get a hold of this lucrative service, we must focus on a specific market segment whose needs match our offerings.

The target customer is anyone planning an event and wishing to provide an original beverage alternative for their guests. When the happy guests serve themselves, they think, "What a great idea, I'll have Margarita Momma bring a machine to my next party." Each guest is your next potential customer.

4.4 Market Needs

The party products market is popular, and demands quality services. Margarita Momma is able to provide this segment with the products and services it is seeking. The unique nature of a frozen drink machine service demands it be an indispensable part of any celebration or gathering.

The market for party products is growing throughout Texas--as well as the rest of the country. Margarita Momma has the advantage of being an originator in South Central Texas.

4.5 Service Business Analysis

As mentioned in the previous sections, there is no relevant competition for Margarita Momma at this time. This is a novel business in an exciting, expanding new industry; we are set up to reap the benefits of being pioneers within this area of Texas. That is not to say we would be unable to compete with a business offering the same services. We intend to entrench ourselves so fully in the segment, that our customers would never dream of using anyone else for their party needs. We will be the company that a new business will be wary of.
