Chipotle’s rise as a leader in the restaurant market is mainly due to the firm’s ability to attract McDonald’s Corporation to fully divest its holdings for a value of 1.5 billion. Chipotle has managed Michael Porter’s Five Forces model with addition of compliments, game theory and competing resources in the fast-causal segment of the restaurant business extremely well, which has kept them ahead of their competitors. Chipotle’s current success suggests that Chipotle will remain effective in addressing these key attributes in overcoming related issues in their future.
“Fast food is popular because it's convenient, it's cheap, and it tastes good. But the real cost of eating fast food never appears on the menu.” (Schlosser). Many people favors several popular Fast food restaurants in a way that impacts others’ opinions about that specific restaurant. The bias of many media outlets mainly affects people negatively since the unawareness of credible information shapes peoples’ knowledge and opinion of fast food.

Companies like Chipotle require raw material to make the products they offer to their customers. This is where supplier power is created, if a company works with multiple suppliers then their suppliers have little or no power this is because it would be unexpansive to switch suppliers. When a company works with limited suppliers they have a higher supplier power because of how expensive it would cost them to switch supplier at this point the supplier also has the power to raise prices to capture some of the industry’s profits.

The ever-shifting trends can also be a risk to a restaurant if the trends move away from the concept of the restaurant. Market saturation of restaurants can also be detrimental to a business, if there are too many business’s in the area serving the same style menu as you, then you could lose out on a lot of potential customers in the slew of competition (Scott, ).

The fast food industry can be difficult to differentiate on a single product. Differentiation in this industry can be focused more on the atmosphere and unique menu items. Brand and product advertisement can be key factors in becoming a strong brand name used in households and bringing customers in the doors.Making low operating costs along with fast turnover for a fast casual industry will prove successful. In an industry that has many different options, it is essential to cut down overhead prices to make the most from your future sales. Vertical integration could cut operating costs making profit increase, but you have to weigh the pros and cons to help determine if that is worth doing. Panera is able to make their dough and sell it to many different franchisees, but is this enough money to offset the other costs? Location is a key success factor. If you are in a location where there tends to be a large amount of
