As consumer demand for corporate sustainability and social responsibility have increased, convenience store chains in the Republic of China (“Taiwan”) have the unique opportunity to offer consumers new convenient high tech recycling solutions. The global industry for the high tech recycling solution known as reversed vending machines has been growing since the 1970s. The reversed vending machine industry in Taiwan is currently undeveloped, which creates a unique opportunity for convenience store chains to profit by offering new convenient recycling solutions.
This business feasibility plan was prepared for RE-THINK Services, a limited company in Kaohsiung City, Taiwan. RE-THINK Services will combine convenience with the recycling point business model to capitalize on Taiwan’s growing demand for corporate social responsibility and the interest in convenient recycling solutions. The paper initially introduces the company and its services. The market and the recycling industry are analyzed next. A competitor analysis of RE-THINK Services and the results from the research survey are also discussed. RE-THINK Services’ management strategy is outlined next followed by the company’s positioning and unique value proposition. RE-THINK Services’ marketing strategy and operational plan will then be outlined. The economic feasibility of the company will also be assessed through five-year projections.
Market research and the final projects indicate that the RE-THINK Services business concept is viable within Lingya District, its intended trial marketplace.
