Week 9: Hookah Bar Team Work Log
Date: October 28th 2011.
To: Dr. Rivers
From: Leohn Smith, Hookah Bar
Subject: Weekly record of team progress
This week was pretty productive for us as a team. We met up at our regular meeting time an hour before class and each member of the organization reported on everything that they could find out about locations including pricing and feasibility as well. Everything we planned to accomplish last week we got done, so now we’re at a pretty good stance as far as the progress of our project goes. Ali, our team leader, reported that he had found a nice spacious place in an ideal spot that was a pasta restaurant actually due to close down soon which would be perfect for our organization to set up the hookah bar. It has a patio, which is pretty clutch, since it was a priority for us and many of the sites we were looking at were actually missing that feature. Li came with some really good research as well. He mentioned that he made some calls overseas to a company in China where we could get hookahs wholesale for a really good price. We also discussed another way to make money by selling hookahs at the bar as well. Looking at an actual space, I can now see exactly what I want to do with the interior also. As interior design researcher I am going to have to start making decisions about how we will set things up as far as furniture, signs and color schemes. I will probably have some ideas for us to vote on next time at our next meeting that will be next Wednesday at 5.
For next week we plan to have finances and details on our budget ready so we can start pricing the inventory and get renovation fees figured out as well.
