Sit-down restaurants’ ability to have short turnaround times from ordering to services raises the question “How are they able to serve everything on the menu so quickly?” Persons may have guessed that it was due to a highly competent and efficient workforce but the reality is that restaurants are now outsourcing semi completed meals in order to save time in the preparation of their meals. These pre-prepared meals can either mean that restaurant chefs have to add a few ingredients before serving or simply heat and serve. Although there are mixed views on this practise by restaurants, it is becoming more commonplace and it the near future this trend can be the new normal. Advertisements for the outsourcing companies advertise the concept of “Hours
Most People are workaholic nowadays; therefore, there is more tendency of eating out. Thus, it turns to be an opportunity for the food chains like Arby’s. The factors such as consuming healthy and obesity have also been a prospect for food chains like Arby’s, which is offering the fresh and customized flavours in sandwiches away from the classic junk foods like burgers/fries and others. Fast food trends change built on what customers want. As said above, through this analysis, healthiness is the emphasis in many countries.
The strategies of the company are strong and their strength lies in the sense that helps the management to build up strong relationships with both buyers and suppliers (Rudolph, 1995). The only weakness so far is lack of adequate investment, but this can be reduced by attracting some potential investors. Suppliers can pose high price threat, but this risk can be mitigated with the help of building strong management ties. Opportunities Opportunities can be defined as trends that can influence business in a positive way. Continuous increase in the saturation and competition in the UK food industry seems to be an opportunity for Campbell.
Furthermore, their were other similar chains making head way in the industry making the fast food industry very competitive with no one large leader. Another factor that might affect Thompson’s strategy was consumer preference in 2012. If an individual has looked at McDonald’s menu there are not that many healthy products that they offer. This often deterred consumers from buying their products due to the health issues with their foods. Another key factor that Thomson looked at was the pricing of his food.
This is helpful to almost everybody, including myself at times, so it definitely attracts many people. Also, it is top priority of these restaurants make sure their food tastes good (Edrington). They may do this at the cost of it being healthy but the masses don’t care if it is healthy. The final, probably most important way, they're as well known as they are is the marketing (Edrington). Since they have so much money, they can put advertisements anywhere, like big events or just big tv networks.
A buyer has to select from the limited brands of each product available in the stores (Palmer, 2005, p. 23). The home brand purchases and top-brands are both limited in numbers at the stores because of which the customers often feel restricted and confused. Cost It used to be said that cost of the products at the Tesco express stores are higher as compared to the other types of outlets (Wrigley, 2000, p. 105). The reason behind this is the small sizes of the stores. There is less space in these stores because of which only limited products can be placed.
The reason for this is that the other large public companies such as Sysco don’t necessarily do the same things Core-Mark. They do very similar things but on a larger scale to different buyers. Sysco for instance sells mainly to food to restaurants and don’t have the revenue that Core-Mark does from cigarette sales. According to Core-Marks 10-k convenient stores used to go to suppliers who only sold them specific items such as all their dairy products. Core-Mark although sells the convenient stores a larger variety of items so that they don’t have to go to many different
Business Model(Andy’s Restaurant) Andy’s Restaurant is gonna be a successful business because there are not many healthy in England. This will Grab the market share. With busy agendas nowadays, people don’t have much time for cooking and preparing their favorite dishes and meals. Having healthy fast food restaurants as an option, they can save their time and do other favorite activities while still enjoying the healthy food. The market for ready-to-eat foods is constantly growing and this gives a chance for growth and a capture of a bigger market share.
Threat of substitutes is moderate since there is a market of take-home meals which pushes toward more influence, but the other substitute like home-made meals is diminishing due to the factors explained in context and in a way offsets the possibility of take-home substitutes for restaurants. Threat of Entry is relatively weak since the industry is at maturity and incentives for newcomers are less attractive than in some other industries. For the Supplier power, in general it is moderate although the level on entrants is small. However for Outback, who is building long-term relations with suppliers it might not be that relevant. Regarding the last fifth force, buyers power it is relatively strong since byers have enough choice on the market which is almost saturated, which implies low cost for switching between substitutes.

As referred earlier food is the center of attraction for any occasion and we need to make it a point that we spend quality time over the quality food. Therefore, we have to search for a restaurant that can make sure that we are offered quality food along with the perfect ambience.
