Polytechnic Kota Kinabalu.
In Polytechnic Kota Kinabalu, there is a unit called the Entrepreneurship Unit
which functions as the motivator for the students to learn and be exposed in
entrepreneurship. The Entrepreneurship Unit is responsible for the incubator program.
There are three incubators that are run by this Unit namely Car Wash, Mini Mart and
Saloon. Each premise is run by the students of Polytechnic Kota Kinabalu themselves,
but still under the supervision of the Head of the Unit. This study is aim to help the Mini
Mart incubator which is the latest kiosk in Polytechnic Kota Kinabalu to be operated in
the cafeteria building of the Polytechnic.
The cafeteria which consists of 6 kiosks is run by students, outsiders or
graduates of Polytechnic Kota Kinabalu. The potential market for these kiosks is
approximately more than 1000 customers per week including the students and the staff.
Based on this population it is an opportunity for the Mini Mart incubator to gain profit.
However, the biggest competitor for the Mini Mart is the Cooperative Shop of
Polytechnic Kota Kinabalu.
