  3. Give examples of the type of marketing that this business uses to promote their business and describe why they chose these methods.

  5. Identify two competitors and describe how this business differentiates itself from them.
  6. Does the business have a competitive advantage? Explain why or why not. 
  7. In your opinion, what challenges does this business face in the near future? Explain your reasoning.
