Introduction to Bulkcan

Bulkcan is a new and emergent CrossFit box that prides itself on close and personal treatment as its unique selling point (U.S.P). This is the marketing plan that has been developed for the company.

Location

The decision was made to place Bulkcan in Arrigorriaga, near the Arratia valley. This location was chosen due to the lack of competition nearby, presenting an opportunity for the CrossFit box. However, the strict laws and low chances of receiving a subvention are challenges to be faced.
