Sophia Robinson April 1, 2013 BUS/210 SWOT Analysis I chose to do my SWOT analysis on the business plan for Jolly’s Java and Bakery (JJB) located in Southwest Washington. After careful review of this business plan I feel that this particular plan was very well thought out with few weaknesses and threats to the sustenance of the business. The owners, Austin Patterson and David Fields both have broad experience in the industry; Patterson in sales, marketing, and management; Fields in finance and administration. I feel that this amount of experience is a great attribute whenever people are considering pursuing business endeavors.

The small business venture roasted their own top quality Arabica coffee beans, distributed coffee to local restaurants and inns, and positioned themselves as coffee roasters, not just distributors.
Answer: A long with the changing demand of customers and developing technology, coffee roasters need to catch up industry trend and adjust the change to ensure stay and continuing success in the coffee industry. Since Keurig introduced a new technology which serves speed and provide fresh taste at the same time, coffee roasters will need to put more effort on develop a new way to package their products to compete with K-Cup and open up their market and consolidate market position.

Considering the number of cups consumed in offices per year which are approximately 20.8 billion (1,937,000*43*250), making $0.04 profit on every K-Cup will bring 832million profit to Keurig per year (not considering time value of money, tax and etc.).
