Ownership & Structure
Java Culture is majority-owned by Arthur Garfield and James Polk. Mr. Garfield holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of ZYX. He’s worked for several years as an independent business consultant. Previously, he owned the ABC Travel Agency, which he profitably sold four years ago. Mr. Garfield has extensive business contacts in Oregon that he will leverage to help his new venture succeed. Mr. Polk has a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the XYZ State University. For the last five years he has worked as a manager of DEF Ristorante, a successful Italian restaurant in Portland, OR. Under Mr. Polk’s management, the restaurant has consistently increased sales while maintaining a lower than average level of operating expenses.
Investors will not be involved into the daily management decisions at Java Culture. They will hire a professional manager who will oversee all the coffee bar operations. Three full-time baristas will be in charge of coffee preparation. They will hire two more part-time employees to fulfill the staffing needs. In the second and third year of operation will add additional employees if and when needed.
A full-time manager will be hired to oversee the daily operations at Java Culture. The candidate (who’s name is withheld due to his current employment commitment) has had three years of managerial experience in the definitely industry in Oregon. This person’s responsibilities will include managing the staff, ordering inventory, dealing with suppliers, developing a marketing strategy and perform other daily managerial duties. We believe that our candidate has the right experience for this role. A profit-sharing arrangement for the manager may be considered based on the first year operational results.
