You recently graduated from Empire State University with a degree in Marketing. You loved your time at Empire State and have made numerous friendships with faculty members, current students, and community members. Because of this, you want to remain in your college town and achieve your dream of opening your own coffee shop, The Daily Grind. Before you can open your business, you know that you need to divide the market into segments to develop customer profiles in order for you to determine which segment of the market you want to target. You have decided to focus on a handful of variables that represent all four market segmentation bases (demographic, geographic, psychographic, behavioral).
In three paragraphs, identify and explain at least one variable within each base of market segmentation that should be used to segment the market to create a customer profile of patrons appropriate for The Daily Grind.
