CPCC project proposal Group 15 Hayden Howard, Phimrawee Wilaikraud PROJECT PLAN 1) The audience for our proposal will be written for the college administration board, who will oversee the financial portion and construction of the project. 2) The issue at hand is the parking problem at the Levine campus in Matthews, NC. With the rising numbers of students attending the Levine campus as well as the other CPCC campus’s parking is always a concern. 3) The most convenient time to complete the work will be once classes finish in May, due to less student population being on campus and not interference with construction vehicles and workers on classes. 4) The work will be done next to the Joe Hendrick automotive building there are trailer classrooms that will be replaced with the new building currently under construction at the Levine campus. There is already room to extend the smaller lot currently in place in front of the trailers allowing for 150-200 more parking spots. 5) This is necessary because with the growth of the college itself and more students wanting to start at a community college prior to attending a four-year college we are running out of room to park all the students. There have been many days where students have had to park on the side because there are not enough parking spots or the are late to class because they are not able to find adequate parking. 6) Cost will vary on choice of company used and how much they are willing to pave, roughly $45,000-60,000 to properly pave that parking lot due to it already being graded for the trailer classrooms. 7) Our recommendation will work because it will add a significant amount of parking spots to an already crowded campus, the space is already purchased and solid enough to hold the weight of a parking lot as well as the cars. 8) We will use research showing the rise of students choosing to attend a community college over a four-year university. 9) The Graph being used will help reinforce the idea of a community college becoming a more popular option among today’s students, and the number of students attending community colleges are on the rise requiring more adequate parking for one of the more popular campuses. 10) Yes our proposal is about bettering the Levine campus of CPCC with more parking that is one less thing students and staff have to worry about on their way to classes. English 114 Proposal Group Assignment (You refers to your group as a whole) Assignment: 1) You will write an internal proposal to the college president, a particular department, or a professor at CPCC in which you propose a specific improvement to CPCC’s “college life.” Your improvement need not be monumental in scope--it could be anything from increasing summer course offerings to starting a campus-wide recycling program to adding more vending machines. FYI—If you are an online only student, think of improvements that can be made based on your experiences with CPCC. You need not be an on-campus student to recommend improvements to the college, so please do not email me to say you only take online courses so you don’t know of any improvements you can recommend at the college. 2) You will follow the steps for effective proposal writing described in your text and in these guidelines. Write your proposal according to these guidelines that I have set forth, not what some random Internet websites may say! Please refer to Chapter 19 for an explanation of proposals along with samples. 3) In this module, you will submit the proposal plan for peer review and revise your proposal based on the feedback. 4) Please review the sample proposals that are included here. However, do not use any parts of the sample proposal in your proposal. If you do, you will earn a zero. 5) You will be graded based on the rubric at the end of these instructions. 6) You will attach the final copy of your proposal in a Microsoft PowerPoint document in a future module. Please note that I will only grade proposals attached in a Microsoft PowerPoint document when the final copy is due. Proposal Guidelines: 1) Complete a brainstorming list of problems you see or improvements that can be made around CPCC. Once you focus on a specific problem, a solution to the problem should not be too far behind. 2) After you’ve come up with a problem/improvement that you want to address along with a solution you want to propose, then it is time to answer the reporter’s questions. Reporter’s Questions (Proposal Plan): 1. Who is your audience? Will your proposal be written for a particular department, the president of the college, or one professor? 2. Specifically, what is the problem that needs to be solved? 3. When can the proposal be enacted? 4. Where will the work be done? 5. Why is your conclusion/recommendation necessary? 6. Specifically, how much will it cost the college to enact your proposal? 7. How will your recommendation work? 8. What piece of research will you use to support your recommendation? (You will be required to cite at least 1 book or article in your research. Include the name and author of the source as well as how it supports your recommendation.) 9. What type of graph will you create, and what will it show? (You will be required to include one original graph that you create in your proposal.) 10. Is your proposal about an improvement to CPCC and not some other entity? (Proposals not about CPCC will earn zero credit.) After you have completed the reporter’s questions and received feedback on them, it is time to begin drafting your proposal. The actual proposal is due in a future module. 1. Review your prewriting to make sure you have considered your topic fully. 2. Organize the data you have collected and work on the following: a) Abstract: problem/solution/benefits (3-10 sentences) b) Introduction: purpose and problem/cause and effect (1-3 sentences) c) Discussion section (the meat of the proposal): one or more of the following methods of organization: -Analysis -Chronology -Spatial -Comparison/contrast -Here is where you will also conduct and show your research. You can probably develop pretty good answers to the problem/improvement you’ve proposed simply based on your experience as a student at the college. However, to fully develop an analysis of the problem, you should interview people at the college who might have something to do with the area in which you are concentrating. For example, if you are proposing a new computer lab, you probably should talk to the director of academic computing to find out how much a new computer lab would cost. If you are proposing an on-campus day care center, you might interview the director of student services. Finally, it might be useful to get some student feedback on the problem and your proposal, so you might want to create a student survey to hand out in a few of your classes or in the college community. You are required to cite at least 1 book or article in your research. Interviews and/or surveys only make it that much more convincing. d) Conclusion: conclusion/recommendations/benefits e) Begin drafting your text by completing each of the proposal sections/components. • • • • • • • • • Title page Table of contents Cover letter List of illustrations (you are required to include at least 1 graph of some type that you created to explain your data, i.e. Line graph, bar graph, pie chart, etc.) Abstract Introduction Discussion Conclusion Works cited page (references) you are required to cite at least 1 book or article in your research. Electronic sources from the library's research databases are fine. You can access them by clicking on the "CPCC library resources" link on the left panel of the Blackboard screen. Remember that interviews and surveys, should you choose to include them, must be cited as well (see Chapter 5 and Appendix B of your text on research and documentation). Please note: You cannot list sources in a list of works cited at the end of your proposal without the matching parenthetical citations in the body of your proposal. You will lose substantial points in the research category for listing sources in a list of works cited that you haven’t shown that you’ve used within the proposal by way of a quote or paraphrase from that source along with a matching parenthetical citation. Review your rough draft and make it better by following these techniques: 1. Add detail for clarity. • Have you adequately covered the background of the problem in the analysis section of the proposal? • Have you presented a variety of options to consider? • Have you described a timeline or schedule for enacting your proposal? • Have you truly quantified the cost of the project? • Have you fully developed your recommendation for action? • Have you considered where you can include graphics such as tables, figures, or charts to make your information more accessible to readers? 2. Delete dead words and phrases for conciseness. 3. Simplify old-fashioned words and phrases. 4. Move information around so that you are using the appropriate organizational strategy in each section. 5. Reformat your text for accessibility. • Highlight key points with underlining or boldface • Use clear headings and subheadings • Make your table of contents as specific as possible 6. Enhance the tone of your proposal by selling your ideas. 7. Proofread your report to avoid grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors. 8. Avoid sexist language. Grading Rubric for Proposal: 1) Proposal content-25 points o Is your proposal convincing? 2) All proposal sections/components present and complete-45 points (5 points for each section) 3) Inclusion of one piece of outside research to support recommendation-15 points o Articles, books, etc. 4) Inclusion of one original graph of some type that you create to explain your data, i.e. Line graph, bar graph, pie chart, etc.-10 points 5) Grammar in proposal-5 points Good luck!! Food Trucks on CPCC Campuses For Ian Brice, James Bowen, Ken Collins By Student Date October 2, 2016 Cover Letter 420 Woodlark Court Indian Trail, NC 28079 October 2nd, 2016 Ian Brice, Associate Vice President Administrative Services James Bowen, Program Chair/Instructor of Culinary Arts Ken Collins, Program Chair of General Automotive 1201 Elizabeth Ave Charlotte, NC 28204 Dear Mr. Brice, Chef Bowen, and Mr. Collins: Gentlemen, I am enrolled in the CPCC Culinary Arts program. Today I am contacting the three of you with a proposal to provide an additional food option on campus for my fellow students and faculty. Cover Letter Continued I have researched the start-up cost for a food truck, as well as calculating food cost, operating cost, labor cost, and net profit. The proposal will cover the process needed to accomplish the goal of adding this addition food option utilizing my research. By the end of this proposal, I am confident all of you will see the great advantages of having CPCC owned food trucks. I would like to schedule a conference call in mid-November to discuss my proposal and answer any questions you may have in order to move forward with this project by the end of November 2016. I hope to have this project implemented by the beginning of the 2017 Fall semester in order to begin earning profit for the school. Should you have any questions, please contact me at jsturm01@email.cpcc.edu.

CPCC Culinary Arts students will design the menu for the food truck. Additionally, the Food Truck 101, Food Truck Marketing, and the Culinary Arts students will assist in the operation of the food truck. The food truck(s) will travel to the five said campuses during the school week (Monday-Thursday), providing an additional food option for students and faculty. Each food truck will potentially become a different food concept, allowing the Culinary Arts students to create and have experience executing a larger variety of foods. This will also benefit the students and faculty by allowing them to experience an even larger variety of food options. • • • u 1.3 Benefits Not only will this food truck provide an additional food option to students and faculty, but will also serve as a learning opportunity for the Automotive, Culinary Arts, Food Trucks 101, and Food Trucks Marketing students. In addition, this food truck will serve as a source of income for the school as all profits will directly go back to the school. 2.0 Introduction u 2.1 Purpose 2.1.1 To provide additional food options to students and faculty at CPCC campuses with limited food choices. 2.1.2 To provide a learning opportunity to the Automotive, Culinary Arts, Food Trucks 101, and Food Trucks Marketing students. 2.1.3 To provide a source of income for the school and a way to fund the proposal itself. u 2.1 Problem Students at the Harper, Merancas, Levine, Harris, and Cato campuses have very limited on campus food options. 3.0 Discussion u On Campus Food Options u How many food options are there on each campus? u How will a food truck increase the food options? u How does a food truck provide a learning opportunity for the Automotive, Culinary Arts, Food Trucks 101, and Food Trucks Marketing students? u How will a food truck provide additional money for CPCC? 3.0 Discussion Continued u 3.1 How many food options are there on each campus? According to cpcc.edu (Fountain), Central and Levine are the only campuses that have fast food options on or near campus. There is a Bojangles at Central and a Subway at Levine. There are also countless restaurants and fast food options within close walking distance from Central campus. Due to the abundant food options for students and faculty at Central Campus, the food truck is not needed at Central Campus. 3.0 Discussion Continued u 3.2 How will a food truck will increase food options? Food trucks are capable of travel and flexibility, this is the reason over 100 colleges across the nation operate their own food trucks according to wsj.com (Tanaka). CPCC’s food truck will travel between campuses, changing the menu each short semester. This mobility and diversity will expand the options greatly, as the food truck can bring something new each short semester. We will have five trucks, one for each campus, each will have a different food concept. The trucks will rotate to a different campus everyday. Thus, providing additional food options to Harper, Merancas, Levine, Harris, and Cato campuses (Monday – Thursday). Sample Menu Figure 1 A close up picture of the Gastrotruck and its menu “GastroTruck.” Mnfoodtrucks.wordpress.com, Reviews on Wheels, 1 Feb. 2013, 3.0 Discussion Continued u 3.3 How does a food truck provide a learning opportunity for the Culinary Arts, Automotive students, Food Trucks 101, and Food Trucks Marketing? Along with providing additional food choices to students and faculty, the food trucks will also provide a learning opportunity for the Automotive, Culinary Students, Food Trucks 101, and Food Trucks Marketing. The Automotive students, as part of one of their projects, will design and build the food trucks. • Additionally, the students will maintain the food trucks. • The Culinary Arts students will create the menus, sanitation standards, prep list, and assist in preparing the food. • The Food Trucks 101, and Food Trucks Marketing will assist in operating the food truck. This will provide these students another perspective on a food related business. Sample Food Truck Figure 2 Picture of Gastrotruck and the Chef “Food Truck Schedule | Dangerous Man Brewing Company.” Dangerous Man Brewing Company, Dangerous Man Brewing Company, 1 Jan. 2015, 3.0 Discussion Continued u 3.4 How will a food truck provide additional money for CPCC? According to cpcc.edu (Food Trucks 101: Starting a Mobile Food Business), the estimated start up cost for a food truck is $85,000. With all five trucks in operation, it will cost a total of $425,000. If CPCC were to invest in this program, this investment would pay for itself. All profits from the food truck go directly back to CPCC. • According to cpcc.edu (Food Trucks 101: Starting a Mobile Food Business), the average food truck generates $290,556. We will use this as our basis for calculating net profit. • First calculate food cost, which is around 20% on average. • Operating cost - which is the price of utilities, cleaning and chemical, paper products, and miscellaneous. On average, these operating costs run approximately 35%. 3.0 Discussion Continued u 3.4 Continued • Lastly is labor cost. The Culinary Arts, Food Trucks 101, and Food Trucks Marketing students will only be supplementing the labor to operate the food trucks. There will be full time employees responsible for the day to day operation of the food trucks. Labor cost is estimated to be 30%, including taxes and benefits. • Net profit is estimated to be 15%, which goes directly back to CPCC. 3.0 Discussion Continued u 3.4 Continued Now that the net profit has been established, net profit per year can be calculated. • As previously stated, the average revenue generated from a food truck is $290,556. • Taking 15% of the $290,556 average revenue, the yearly net profit is $43,583.40. • This $43,583.40 yearly net profit is over half the estimated start-up cost of the food truck, CPCC’s original investment. Therefore, within two years, the CPCC’s original food truck investment will be repaid. 3.0 Discussion Continued Sales • 3.4 Continued Net Profit 15% Labor Cost 30% Food Cost Operating Cost Food Cost 20% Operating Cost 35% Labor Cost Net Profit 4.0 Conclusion u 4.1 Problem With the limited food options at Merancas, Harper, Harris, Levine, and Cato campuses, there is a need for more options. u Students and faculty having limited time must either bring their own food or drive somewhere off campus. u There are no food options on any of the above said campuses, excluding Levine, within walking distance. 4.0 Conclusion u 4.2 Process Based on the research I conducted, I propose the following: u The food trucks will be built by the CPCC Automotive students. u The food truck menus will be designed by the Culinary Arts students. u The Culinary Arts, Food Trucks 101, and Food Trucks Marketing will assist in operating the food trucks. 4.0 Conclusion u 4.3 Benefits Based on research and calculations I have conducted, there are many benefits to enacting this proposal. u Students and faculty will obtain an additional on campus food option. u The Automotive, Culinary Arts, Food Trucks 101, and Food Trucks Marketing students will receive hands on education and practice for their classes. u The food truck will pay for itself and generate additional monies, ...

CPCC project proposal Group 15
Cover letter
I am writing this proposal to the college administration board. The board will oversee the
financial portion as well as the construction of the project. The proposal that I am having is about
parking problem at Levine campus in Matthews, NC. There is a rise in the number of students
attending Levine campus, and thus the issue of parking needs to be solved. I have researched the
approximate cost of the whole project. The proposal covers all that is required to have more
parking spots on the campus.
I am sure that after this proposal the board will see the need and the advantages of Levine
campus having an additional parking. I propose the construction to take place in May after
students get done with classes. At this time, there will be minimal disturbances since there will
be no classes.
Thank you for your time
