My name is Courtney Tomasello, and I am an Equine Studies senior at Delaware Valley College. For my Senior Business class, I am evaluating several horse barns across the country to help answer questions I have about starting a barn of my own. I have a particular interest in draft barns, because I one day want to create a barn that works with beginner riders and draft horse rescues. If you have the time, I would appreciate it very very much if you could answer these few questions about your business for me by February 21st. Here are the questions:
What is the name of your business and where are you located?
How long has your business been established?
Do you have any vision or mission statements for your business? Would you mind telling them to me?
Who would you describe to be your “target market“? What kind of person would you expect to attend your business? I.e., age, gender, race, presumed annual income, etc.
How do you market or advertise your business? Flyers? Mailers? Business cards? Website?
How is your business structured- What kinds of positions do people hold? Barn managers? General stable hands? Owner/operators? Grooms?
About how many clients/customers/visitors does your business see per week or per month?
Thank you so much for your time!!! I’m excited to read your answers!
