The concept and management of the Nightclub has been well received, and has been offered key placement at the center of Your City's new First & Main Town Center development. This commercial center spans 138 acres and promises an immediate primary trade population of 332,000 people with a secondary population of 164,000 people. The Boulevard at the Avenue average daily traffic counts are currently 53,000, and will increase to 72,000 by 2008 following the Boulevard's connection northward to I-25 in 2007. At the center of the complex will be a 16-screen Cinemark and IMAX theater opening May, 2006. The Center's planners having met the Nightclub's management and have reviewed the concept. They have indicated that the Nightclub is "exactly" what they were looking for and wish to place it directly in front of the theater. The annual projected traffic for what Cinemark is calling their 'flagship' location is 1.4 million people, which exceeds their current Tinseltown location at the arena.
The Nightclub will be a 10,000 square foot unit, which will also house the company's corporate business office. The dance club and bar will accommodate 750 people. With Your City's rapidly growing population, the variety of the Nightclub from across the country would create mass appeal for all of the Nightclub's customers. The store will be equipped with state-of-the-art audio and video systems like none other found in Your City. It will serve the need for a true nightclub in Your City. The general appearance will be clean, open, and pleasing to the customer. The demographics are favorable, with minimal competition from other dance-themed venues and bars.
4.1 Market Segmentation
We see the Nightclub as appealing to three major market segments. Fortunately, the long, late night hours of operation help the Nightclub lend itself to multiple segment appeal. Our market segmentation scheme allows some room for estimates and nonspecific definitions.
1.Childless Young Professionals--Due to our proximity to the IMAX and Cinemark theaters, we must appeal to single adults and young couples. Whether it is a group of friends or a couple out to see a movie together, these people need a place to eat/drink either before and/or after their movie. These customers will range in age from 27 to 40. The Nightclub will appeal to this category by switching the tempo and entertainment to be more appealing to adults as it gets later into the evening. We also anticipate a 15% annual growth rate in tandem with the growth rate of Your City and through increased popularity.
2.College Students--By creating an environment that is appealing to college students, we secure a natural progression between the high school student and the young professional. Through word of mouth, the Nightclub expects realize an increase of five percent annually from this segment.
3.Tourists and Business Travelers--More and more business and travelers and tourists are finding themselves in Your City every year as is made evident by the increased demand and subsequent expansion of the local airport. We plan to reach these people through direct marketing to local hotel patrons. We anticipate a 20% annual growth rate in this segment. As our relationships grow with the local hotels, so too will the word of mouth recommendations from the hotel staff as well as the patronizing of our restaurant by their families.…
