About

There are an abundance of mobile apps in the market place today. Our mobile app provides a valuable service focused on providing convenience. Our App generates recipes. These recipes can be for individual or family preparation. With the continuous rise of entertaining cooking shows like Chopped, Cutthroat Kitchen, and Master Chef, a new level of community interest has been re-established. There is now a captivated audience of viewers that want to pursue meal preparation. In “layman’s terms”… more and more people are “heading back into the kitchen.” However, we as a community of people often lack the time necessary to plan even the smallest things, such as: meal preparation.

I know that I have always asked myself, “What am I going to cook tonight?” The second question I ask is …”what do I have in the refrigerator?” These two questions “go hand in hand.” And often times this question can absorb 10, 20, or 30 minutes of your time and may provide an unnecessary distraction; depending on what you are doing and what you need to do next.

If you are a single mother or homemaker, you know exactly what I am talking about.But then there is the issue of monotony. You know what you have in the refrigerator and pantry but you don’t want meatloaf again; you are tired of fried chicken, and now you want to prepare something but you are out of ideas.

So now that we have identified the common problems that we face daily, what is the answer?.. The Cook Jinni Mobile App

But with our busy lives, who has time to plan? Cook Jinni was built on that premise. With Cook Jinni, there’s very little planning involved.

Cook Jinni allows the user to scan the UPC label of any product in the pantry; and based on those items, the app will list recipes, all categorized by different cuisine (American, French, Mexican, etc.) that corresponds with the items scanned.

Cook Jinni makes cooking easy, offering videos that may assist in completing the recipe of choice.

Cook Jinni is more than just an app. We are creating a complete ecosystem. Although we are focusing on the app project, we are also involved with the development of Pierogi distribution, Retail products (co-branding of Pots and Pans), and TV broadcasting to name a few. This is an entire movement!

Cook Jinni App has a Patent and Copyright assigned.

Executive Summary

There is an opportunity to create an innovative successful specialty app development company that is establishing the most comprehensive mobile app for culinary enthusiasts.Cicely Ford recognized this opportunity and has decided to go forward with a new company named Cook Jinni Corporation (CJC). The company will penetrate the market in the business of providing a revolutionary new mobile app that caters to chefs, cooking enthusiasts and homemakers who are seeking convenient cooking alternatives for meal preparation.Cicely Ford also recognize the opportunities for offering an easy way for stay at home chefs to completely prepare a home cooked meal without shopping for ingredients by offering various replacement options that can be substituted for recipe items that are currently unavailable. Cook Jinni will serve its areas of the culinary information business working to make its operations more productive while at the same time controlling expenses.

The money required to get the company organized and develop the app prototype has all been self-funded. There are absolutely no other investors or contributors up to this point. The mobile app is about 94% complete and we are set to launch in the App Store within the next 45 days. However, we are running short by $6,100.00 USD to pay for one segment of our marketing campaign. We need an additional $6,100.00. Our marketing budget is slated to be about $20,000.00 per month. To date, $55,000.00 has gone toward the software development alone. Now it’s time to market, market, market.

This business is based on two vital components:

1. Excellent management that has a mastery of choosing the right product and the right service at the right time with a mastery of knowing what its total market is and how to keep gaining a greater share of that market.

2. Providing an excellent product or service that is not only well accepted now but also whose acceptance and use will continue to grow at an accelerated rate into the future.

Cook Jinni will coordinate worker productivity with increasing market demand to ensure continued company growth and development. Its approach emphasizes the individual participation of every employee and member of this organization and the total process of building the company to acquire an ever-increasing market share. By guiding and helping employees with knowledge and awareness, it will build a solid foundation for achieving its most ambitious goals. Cook Jinni realizes that this is an ideal time to establish its business in this expanding industry and move forward in a steady progression over the next five years. Some of the highlights of its strategy are here briefly summarized:

  • Cook Jinni has talent and experience that is superior for the marketplace.
  • Profitability is assured by its preparation of knowing what the market requirements are presently and what the market requirements are to be in the next several years.
  • With its strategy and budget in place, sales are expected to multiply rapidly and the company expects to move in on the leaders in the industry.

The Project

This project will result in the development of the Cook Jinni application. This application features a UPC code scanner for products in the user’s kitchen. Once the user has scanned in the products from their kitchen pantry, the user will have access to recipes in the application’s database complimentary to the products scanned. The application will save the user’s products in their own in-kitchen library. This library will be accessible by user name and password.

The Cook Jinni application will cost the user 2.97 for the initial download and 1.00 each month thereafter. The mobile app will also comprise of different in-app purchasing choices. The in-app purchases will include, but not limited to:

  • Access to Vegan Recipes

  • Access to Low Calorie Recipes

  • Additional access to the recipe database

Many of the recipes will also have demonstration videos, similar to recipe chosen by the user. The Cook Jinni application will also link to the basics of cooking like cutting, breaking an egg, fry chicken, sautéing vegetables, etc.

The scope of the Cook Jinni includes the planning, design, development, testing, and transition of the Cook Jinni IOS application.This application will meet or exceed CJC’s standards and additional requirements established in the project charter.The scope of this project also includes completion of all documentation, manuals, and user resources to be used in conjunction with the application. Project completion will occur when the application and documentation package has been successfully executed. The scope of this project does not include any changes in requirements to standard operating systems to run the application, application updates or revisions.

Cook Jinni the Company

Cook Jinni began its operation in November 2014. The inspiration for the company was the recognition of a need for a mobile app that can provide convenient solutions to people performing meal preparation. The premise for Cook Jinni is simple. The mobile app user will download the app, scan the items in the refrigerator and cabinets, which will create a fixed library of on hand items and then “search” for meals that they can prepare based off of what they have in their kitchen.

The company will be headquartered in the city of West Palm Beach in the state of Florida. Its operations will expand nationally.

Cook Jinni is set up as a Corporation. The ownership is held by World Food Association, which holds 100%. Any and all questions relative to ownership should be directed to Cook Jinni.

Cook Jinni is proud of the accomplishments of the people that have made up this company. Cook Jinni is particularly proud of the fact that we possess a dedicated management team that demonstrates honesty, integrity and professionalism in all aspects of operations. The company is also particularly proud of the fact that all of our associates are carefully prescreened to ensure the highest standard of quality and we consistently strive to provide a superior level of service designed to exceed the expectations of our clients.

Cook Jinni will maintain its headquarters where its management staff will be located in the city of West Palm Beach in the state of Florida. At no time will management allow a situation to exist where the company is supporting locations or premises that are not absolutely essential to the most effective operation of the company.

The Competitors

Cook Jinni has done extensive research and investigation of all of the aspects of the competitiveness of the existing market in which it will be participating. Cook Jinni management team is fully aware of the major competitors who are:

  • Big Oven

  • Epicurious

  • Kitchen Tool

  • Paprika

Cook Jinni recognizes these major competitors as a prime focus because they have been evaluated using criteria of price and value given. Therefore Cook Jinni has taken an existing business model that has generated 8M dollars in sales (Big Oven over the last 3 years) and has PERFECTED IT!

Also the Customer base for Cook Jinni is significantly more than that of Big Oven and Paprika.

*The pre-mentioned apps only were offered by ITunes and marketed to a small consumer base in the United States and an average cost of 5.99 to 19.99 per device.

In stark comparison, Cook Jinni will be marketing to the United States which has 300,000,000 cellphone and tablet users, India which has 900,000,000 mobile app users (India is English Speaking), Brazil which has 400,000,000 users, Mexico (Spanish SpeakingCountries) which has 280,000,000 users and China which has 1.2 Billion users.

This application will be marketed to more than 2.8 Billion people.

Not only will we beat the price but we will provide a better product.

This company specifically knows that the advantages that it has over its competition include that Cook Jinni provides a valuable service to people seeking unique suggestions for meals based off of what they have in their kitchen without having to go shopping in order to meet the requirements of various recipes found online. This study of its competition has given the company a mastery of the effects of regulatory agencies, business share, pricing strategies, cut-throat or permissive posturing, as well as strengths and weaknesses of the management teams who head up the companies that make up the competition.
