For mission day, my friends and I opened a stall called Flavour Bombs.
Flavour bombs was a company that sold drinks. Mixed drinks and normal drinks.
Shivansh and I brought the drinks, Noah brought some snacks and Jayden brought 120 cups. I also brought a 6 pack of Sunkist cans for us when we were on break, but we were so busy that we didn’t get enough time to have a break, so we drank the Sunkist when we sold out as a celebration. I also brought some Grain Waves and chili chips as a snack for if we got hungry.
I was having doubts about if we were going to sell well because the Orr Family Café was positioned right next to us but when I saw how long the line was during the first shift, I stopped having doubts. We had a rule where the first 3 people to come to our stall would get a free drink and would be able to get snacks from us after the shifts. I only knew the first 2 people because I was on second shift. They were Abi and Joseph.
We had a website called www.flavour-bombs.tk and we worked on that for most of the lessons that we had because I finished making the logo and banner on the first lesson. Jayden and Noah didn’t want to make a website because they thought that it would be a waste of time but me and Shivansh still made a website to put all of out details like where we were going to be. We also put some details for the Teacher on the website like how much money we would have to make back to earn profit.
The Monday after Mission day was when we had to calculate the profit that we made. Altogether, we made $120.90 and we made $94.90 profit. We only had to spend $26 because we already had some of the things that we needed lying around in our houses.
We could have made a video ad but we didn’t have enough time to make that, as we would’ve had to write a script, make sure it’s good, put the product in our ad, record the ad, make sure that it looks somewhat professional, then make sure it’s appropriate.
We could have made an app for our company but nobody would be able to download it because it takes money to put your app on the app store for people to download. It was also because we didn’t have enough time to make one. It took us way too long to find a website that we could make our app on, and it didn’t help that the internet wasn’t working properly and was being really slow.
We didn’t need to prepare things before Mission day, because we had to mix them on the spot so that the drinks wouldn’t go flat. I was kind of surprised that the drinks didn’t go flat and warm because we didn’t put them in the fridge. We didn’t put them in the fridge because we had around 10 drinks and it would’ve taken up all of the space in the fridge.
Shivansh and I also brought juice for the people that didn’t want soft drinks, but we didn’t mix them. I originally brought apple juice and orange Juice, but the apple juice was so heavy that I ended up leaving it at home.
As we were selling out, we started to lower the price of the drinks because we were running out of things to do. It went from 70c to 50c to 30c within 5 minutes. Me and Noah forgot to tally up the 30c drinks, so we didn’t count as much money as we really made.
My favourite part of Mission day was seeing all of the stores that people made and seeing all of the customers that Flavour Bombs and the Orr Family had. I made sure that we all greeted our customers with “Hi, what would you like?” and said “Bye, enjoy your drink” or “Bye, have a good day” when they left.
We didn’t end up buying the toys for the pre-orders because not all of the people who pre-ordered picked up their drinks. The only person that I saw pick up their drink was Ethan. We let him cut the line, as he was one of the first people to pre order.
Since Noah and I were on the second shift, we got to explore Mission Day before everything sold out. I didn’t end up buying anything. Jayden and Shivansh were first shift, so they explored after things were starting to clear up. Jayden bought 5 milkshakes from the Orr Family!
I brought 3 packs of chips, but I gave 2 of them away because some groups didn’t get breaks and didn’t have shifts. The chili chips went to Abi’s group and the honey soy chicken chips went to Ian’s group.
