How might we support the local community through employment?
Customer / Problem
The Hay community could benefit from more local employment opportunities, but the council doesn't want a big fast food chain taking local profits.
Our solution is to set up a local fried chicken store in the centre of Hay, "HayFC'. With HayFC, we could provide fairly-priced, locally sourced chicken to local customers and set off a ripple effect of a positive impact on multiple sectors of our community. Here are some examples of the wide ranging positive impact our social enterprise could have on Hay:
- Locals can buy food from the store and the money made in profits will return to the community through the council and local events
- Tourists and truck drivers can enjoy a low price, quality meal sourced from our community
- We would source our chicken from local farmers and set up initiatives within our business to they are fairly repaid for their vital contribution to our business
