Amy's Bread
Amy's Bread is at an intersection. The successful bakery in New York City must decide
whether to expand its operations or not. A variety of strategic alternatives are present, and the
choice of expanded wholesale or retail operations or both further complicates the decision
dilemma. The financial impact and long term consequences of each alternative have to be taken
into account, together with an analysis of the challenges of developing from a startup to a multilocation business. Amy's Bread was founded by a young female entrepreneur six years ago. It
sells specialty, hand-shaped Bread in Manhattan to wholesale and retail customers. Amy's Bread
is a leading bakery player. The company was widely qualified in the industry. This is due to an
entire investment in the strengths it has and the correction of the organization's weaknesses. The
company must also consider external factors that are defined as the company's opportunities and
threats. The company needs to invest in finding the necessary information to improve the
organization.
Ray Monroe Case Study
Ray Monroe has a "get by" mindset. Whether in school or running the business. He also

more successful, you have to recruit a few more employees who are managerial 24/7. It requires
open telephone lines and an on-site locker. They should still have a phone follow-up call to
maintain enforcement and develop client interest, going the extra mile.
Mayu LLC Case Study
As a volunteer for Small Business Growth, Kate Robertson was a member of the Peace
Corps in Peru. There she made contact with Peruvian artisans of alpaca fiber. Since leaving the
Peace Corps, Mayu LLC began selling fashions by hand. Her goal from the outset was to stay
linked with Peru's social community. After evaluating the need for fashion rice sacks, she could
return to Chicago; her operations planned to extend, but with marketing barriers. For all other
Americans who want to import knitwear from Peru, too, Kate must continue to retain ties and
maintain trade secrets. She would eventually not be the only import company in Peru, so she
could work with other companies calling for training to do what she did and extend her line.
Each employee can sign a non-disclosure agreement to binding their responses and talks legally.
Finally, the fashion line's creation and the development of the knitwear variants will also allow
her to mark her fashion and make it exclusive. Th...
