Because of the different cultures and drinking habits of people around the United States, it’s a good idea to form co-ops with departments and networks across the country. This will help them “take advantage of others’ specialized expertise and resources” to analyze the market and the company from many different aspects. Another principle that would benefit MillerCoors is “looking over the horizon”. The change in consumer taste and perception of the industry is definitely affecting the mainstream beer industry, and the only real way to stay on top of the market is to analyze and anticipate trends within the industry. To do this, the MillerCoors company analysts need to look beyond the current market in order to set themselves apart from the
However, the company faced many difficulties at the time: they had recently entered an area that was in direct competition with the likes of Starbucks and McDonalds, without the financial backing that those restaurants had. In order to stay competitive they needed to find a way increase their profit. Jamba Juice only offered cold drinks, so in areas with cold seasons, such as New York, they lose money during the winter months. McDonald’s offered smoothies for about one dollar less than Jamba Juice and Starbucks was well known for their adult coffee beverages, which gave them an easy way to enter into a market for children who already came to the store with their parents. With their higher profit margins, large fast food companies could use smoothies as a loss leader and cause Jamba Juice to lose their footing.
Jamba Juice had a lot of competitors that could become a major threat to the company. The main concern of the company is trying to keep up with the competition all while remaining loyal to their products, which their customers love. Jamba Juice led the smoothie industry for a certain time period until the competition started to have similar product offerings. Very popular brands such as McDonald’s Panera Bread, and Starbucks all started selling smoothies, and McDonald’s, leading the way, launched its line of smoothies and officially became a part of the frozen drink group. McDonald’s brought its marketing machine into the frozen drink category, launching its line of smoothies in the summer of 2010 with a value pitch.
Then in 1998, McDonalds invested $360 million into Chipotle, allowing it to expand rapidly.

Plato’s Diner location was good for marketing strategy, so was their price, and meal, however, they lack effective marketing and promotional push. Dean and Chris need to put the final P(romotion) to work. They need to promote Plato’ Diner on television or in the newspaper. To be successful, they have to move forward with innovation. Also, they should enlarge the parking lot and invest into a credit card machine because plastic is the way of the future.
Certainly, for young children, who are fresh meat for the advertising industry, the idea of a week (or an entire childhood) without TV makes a lot of sense. But shouldn 't men and women be trusted to judge their own dosages, just as they would decide on the number of drinks they can handle at the bar? And shouldn 't we choose our favorite shows because we like them, not because they force our otherwise helpless cortexes to "manage resources" and "recognize long-term patterns"?”. Dana uses this as a claim to infer that people should be the decision makers to what they want to learn and not just assume that television will make us

As it applies to the chapter, I found it very hard to narrow it down to only just the topic on microeconomics and the forces behind supply and demand. Although, the reason for the new philosophy will not only facilitates a better economy as the country rises out of the recession era, but it will produce a more educated pool of restaurant employees.
