Months of preparation will enable Year 11 Business students to launch their newly developed brands at the event with a total of nine businesses trading for the first time on the evening. Seventeen business partners have been collaborating since July to research, develop and create a unique product or brand to market at Twilight Collective. Five businesses have chosen to focus on food related businesses with menu items including flatdogs, crepes, pretzels, lollies and snack foods, as well as a crowd pleasing ‘Snag Stand’. All profits made on the evening will be donated to a cause chosen by the students involved.
Trading under the name ‘Joe Mama’s Flatdogs’ students Harvey and Lewis have developed a unique selling proposition with a twist on the traditional hotdog; a toasted flat sliced gourmet hotdog with a variety of toppings, including sweet chilli sauce, sour cream and herbs. Sweet tooths will be in for a treat with ‘The Crepe Company’ offering crepes made with a tasty recipe and a selection of delicious toppings including Nutella and fresh strawberries. Ariana of ‘Pretzel Pop’ will be selling handmade soft pretzel sticks with a variety of flavours including salted, cheese, chocolate coated and gluten free options.
An additional four businesses will enable attendees to get a head start on Christmas shopping as they market creatively crafted wares. Business partners Amy and Grace have developed ‘Element’ and will market “a range of vegan, all natural and ecofriendly hand poured candles crafted to the seasons, providing a fresh clean and crisp product.” Neighbouring stall ‘Tres Mignon’ want “customers to feel part of something special” as partners Charlotte and Monique share authentic French inspired handmade and unique products which include resin and polymer earrings and baking jars containing dry ingredients for baked goods. Homemade natural and decorative soaps make a thoughtful gift, as ‘Lather Up’ prepares to share individually made products with scents, colours and ingredients all carefully considered to create something special. Macramé-based business ‘Lots O’Knots’ will add further interest to the business stalls with keyrings and reusable produce bags available for sale. Business partners Nick and Steph have placed particular emphasis on the use of vegan friendly, veggie wool and organic ecofriendly cotton for their products. “Come and get knotted” had become their unique marketing message.
