The companies day-to-day cost are $276.80 because of the employees who get $9.45 an hour and they work for 6 hours, and in our warehouse there are four employees working to operate the machines. The cost to run the warehouse day-to-day is only $50. The machines are simple and easy to operate and only take a short time to educate the employees.

We use Paypal that cost a small transaction fee of 3.4% of total sale amount plus a fixed fee of $0.50 per transaction. We will have a bilingual speaking America to operate the phones and respond to e-mail’s. He or she will be getting a $10.75 salary an hour and will work full time 8 hours. It is important she is bilingual so she can speak to our Spanish speaking customers. We are targeted to people the ages of 14-35. We target them because our company is based off of being eco-friendly but also being the new hip style. Young people really care about the environment so our company is perfect for them, but for the older people our company’s clothing design is to new for them. When Ethical Addiction grows we will open stores and more warehouses to supply customer needs. Opening stores helps bring in more sales and keep customers coming because it will allow people not having to go through shipping and allowing older people that are not comfortable with the internet to buy for their kids or grandkids. Being a clothing brand there’s no where to go but grow more because the more the people who buy the more they get other people to come and retain our customers. One of Ethical Addiction’s goals is to sell 2000 t-shirts in the first 3-6 months. By the end of the first year and a half reach our starting price. To open up a store once the entire business is making complete profit. Zero Maria Cornejo Ethical Addiction They’re designs are very We aspire to be the next plain and have very little selection.
