The project team researched and assessed the current operations of DoughBoyz. From this, they identified bottlenecks and areas of improvement where DoughBoyz can optimize their profits for use towards charitable events. The team developed several deliverables that will help DoughBoyz hold consistent Community Breakfast events. These deliverables consisted of a cost analysis spreadsheet, sustainable packaging, a new menu, and professional sponsorship documents.
DoughBoyz is a breakfast catering start-up created by WPI Graduate Student Justin Amevor. Their mission, as a Benefit Corporation is to serve the Worcester community both as a business and as a non-profit. Justin’s mission is to fight against hunger in the Worcester area by providing sustainable solutions to food insecurity.
