Project Description


The purpose of this study and report is to document and assess the variety of vendors of ice cream (and ice cream related products, e.g. frozen chocolate milk, frozen yogurt, etc) in Lagos, Nigeria. This is in preparation for the possible expansion of our UK based business to Nigeria and other West African countries.

Detailed requirements for the study

Travel around Lagos, including mainland, Yaba, Leikki, Lagos Island, VI, and other areas. Find as many ice cream / frozen product (e.g. yoghurt, chocolate milk, etc) vendors as possible. These could be mobile street based vendors at a market, on the roadside or a formal shop (e.g. Silverbird Galleria or Coldstone creamery on VI).

For each vendor provide:

Several photos

Their location: street name, Long/Lat co-ordinates.

A description of the type of products sold, and as much information as possible, whether they are 'home made', pre-bought, made on the premises, imported, etc.

Price information, include if this is a 'listed' price or was bargained for.

Collate all this information and provide a report on each vendor, with a photo collage and an extract from Google Maps showing their exact location.

In the end there should be at least 2-4 concise sides per vendor. Facts are more important waffle.

In total we are looking for a complete study of a range of different vendor types, up to a maximum of 30 vendors.

Tabulate the data from each vendor in a seperate excel sheet
