  • Company Description: Joy to the Jars is a community oriented company with a mission. Located in Oak Harbor, WA, our mission since day one has been to raise money for the DECA Business Club of Oak Harbor High School so that each student can have the chance to compete in the ICDC International Competition this year. From four ambitious girls came an idea; this idea was to create mason jar hot chocolate kits, called “snow day survival kits,” providing a cozy escape from the cold for our consumers and taking advantage of the holiday season.   Definition of Market: Joy to the Jars worked to reach out to consumers and vendors who, like us, are community oriented. Our business catered to Whidbey Island locals. In particular, these locals included: ●Middle aged women ●20 year olds who have recently graduated from Oak Harbor High School and have been in DECA 

    ●Anyone interested in a holiday gift 

  • Joy to the Jars has created a vendor profile, consisting of Whidbey Island locals with promotional resources to help promote our cause with flyers and word of mouth. In addition, we targeted locals that are middle to upper class women that concentrate their shopping on local businesses and giving back to the community. Based on our market research, we found that our best target vendor/consumer was a middle aged female (3060 years old) with a disposable income. 

     Description of Product and Services: The Joy to the Jars product is an eight ounce mason jar filled with Hot Cocoa mix and marshmallows as well as peanut butter chocolate chips, regular chocolate chips or peppermints. The jars were decorated with Christmas fabric and twine which were tied on to the lids of the mason jars.The Joy to the Jars product provides a sweet and warm beverage for the chilly fall and upcoming winter season.

    ○Walmart ○Posh Upscale Resale ○Ace Hardware 

    ●Word of Mouth  Marketing & Sales Strategies:   We decided as a group that it would be best for our sales to ask stores if they would be interested in putting in a purchase order for our product. After being turned down, we went to plan B  making a list of insurance agencies,real estate offices,and banks to get more of a mass market. This worked extremely well when 

  • many people ordered in bulk for their clients. We made flyers as well and received many emails and calls from those wanting to buy our product. Our last strategy was to find stores that we knew were geared towards our target market that would let us stand outside and sell. This worked very well due to the amount of people coming in and out of the stores and our product was a hit.

    Market Segmentation Strategy

    Service Business Analysis There is a lot of places to get candles in Oak Harbor. Several locations downtown, along with the 7 drugstores in town. But only 2 or three places to get locally made candles. We also have an advantage to our competitors because Aroma Archives is run by high school students and our products are better for the environment. There is a big enough target market to sell our candles here, so we’re confident we’ll succeed.

    Description of Products Aroma Archives has two different sized candles with three scents that is can be interchangeable with each size. The Classic Masson Jar Candle is what we used to compare to our competition.

  • 3

    The average candle that size is commonly sold from 15-20 dollars, so we decided to go more inexpensive to appeal to our customers.

    The Classic Masson Jar Candle- Any of our three scents in a 12 oz. mason jar. Each candle is handmade and decorated with a bow and little add-ons. $10

    Shell Candles- Any of the three scents in a medium- small shell. Each shell is unique and the candle is again handmade. $5

    Raffle Tickets- Our raffle tickets go to winning a basket of Fall & Winter essentials! One winner randomly drawn wins a basket with 2 candles, a pair fuzzy socks, hot chocolate mix, a homemade bath bomb, a mug and a Christmas card from us. $1

    Organization and Management Nicole has always been organized, so she’s in charge of keeping track of orders and making sure cash flow is correct. Since Nicole is only a part time student at Oak Harbor High, her schedule is flexible for meeting with local businesses at convenient hours.

    Samantha is very social and her family has lived in Oak Harbor for generations so they all have many personal connections with people in the area. She’s very outgoing so she’s mostly in charge of sales and is an expert in personal selling.

    Zoe is very creative so she helps bring in new ways to display and promote our business. She is also friendly and outgoing so she makes a lot of sale in her circle. All three of the girls all care for the environment so they’re motivated to do this project.

    Marketing and Sales Strategy Our business mentor has a lot of personal and business relationships with local owners in the area so Aroma Archives got a great deal of business by her word of mouth advertising. But along with that, Aroma Archives made several flyer and they’re displayed in over 10 businesses and spread among friends. Oak Harbor is a fairly small community so news circulates quickly. We also made an advertisement at the Chambers of Commerce, because it’s a great and also free way to get word out. But the most efficient way we’ve found to advertise is by using social media. We made Aroma Archives a Facebook, along with making several posts on our personal social media which we’ve gotten a lot of feedback on.
