Fernandez A thesis submitted in Partial Fulfillment of the requirements for the bachelor of Science in Business Administration Major in Marketing Management ABE International Business College-Fairview March 20, 2013 INTRODUCTION Tapsilog" is an original dish of the Filipinos which became a favorite since it was first created. "Tap" means tapa, "Si" means sinangag or fried rice and "Log" for itlog or egg. This kind of food is popular for Filipinos due to its tenderness and tastiness with the combination of fried rice and egg.

Kahitsan is small eatery concept offering high quality yet affordable traditional Filipino food. It was originated from the word "Kahit Saan", the word we used to hear every time we ask someone where they want to eat. This concept was build to let the people know that Kahit Saan also exist as a small eatery providing wide varieties of filipino dishes. Kahitsan is located at the eastern end of Claro M. Recto Avenue due to high density of colleges and universities found in the area.

It serves a variety of mouth-watering Sizzling Silog Meals such as TapSiLog, ToSiLog, CornSiLog, SigSiLog, PorkSiLog, BurgerSiLog, HotSiLog, ChixSiLog, and LongSiLog with a combination of Bulalo Soup. The gravy made it even more delicious and serves it on a sizzling plate. We offered a delicious and affordable price that gives a satisfaction to our customer that they surely get what they paid off. THESIS STATEMENT Nowadays, people tend to eat outside due to busy days. Some students were not able to bring their own "baon" especially colleges. KahitSan provides services to valuable customers.

SALES TECHNIQUES Kahitsan’s strategy is based on delivering a strong customer value proposition in a niche market.

Recto Avenue, in a friendly, non-smoking, customer-oriented dine in experience and first to have its separate takeout counter.

To drive customers to Kahitsan, we will employ several techniques outlined below. * Coupon – coupon will be given to people who passed by our store to inform them about our menus. * Flyers will be used for the advertisements which bring in customers. * (Word of Mouth) Encourage customers to become regular customers, and to tell all their friends and acquaintances about the great experiences and time that they shared to us. * Facebook Fan Page is an essential tool to promote my business. * Barkada Meals good for 3 to 5 persons. SALES OPERATION/SERVICES
