In 2011, the STAND production workshop has been receiving consignment work from Malaysia Milk Sdn Bhd and QSR Brands (M) Holdings Sdn Bhd. The young adults pack straws for Vitagen and take-away sauce and serviette packs for Kentucky Fried Chicken. They have been doing this work for the past six years. The measly income earned by each person ranges from about RM45 to RM100 per month.
Therefore, we are challenged to take this group of young people into the next phase. We believe that they can be developed and trained to do more than what they are currently doing, so that they may be able to earn a living for themselves. This will build their self-confidence, dignity, and recognition of their potential in contributing to society.
This will be a viable business that will produce high-quality quiches and pies to schools, food production houses, and cafés and through online sales.
The generation of profit of the business will be apportioned among the employees.
This social enterprise should be a replicable business model.
This social enterprise is founded on principles and values.
The emphasis is on mentorship and the development of employees.
Establish a marketing strategy by speaking to schools or homeschooling centres to secure an order of pies or quiches for the students’ lunch, for one day within a week. If we are able to secure a few schools for each weekday in the week, we will then be able to have a consistent order of pies and quiches for the weekdays in an entire week.
Establish contacts and supply to cafes and restaurants that do not have pies and quiches on their menu. Suggest to them that this can be an item that they add to their menu to enhance sales opportunities.
Establish contacts with party organizers and caterers to supply pies or tartlets.
Establish social media advertisements for online sales.
“Bless With A Pie”, this is where people or organization can order pies to bless a needy home during a special occasion/event.
