As technology improve each day, it creates a simple world than before. The technology eases our life and so it should do the same to Trader Joe’s in terms of some operational activities.

Health care can, most definitely, use a revitalization of standards and practices.

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.

Celina Canuto English Comp I 12/11/15 What should we eat? After a long day of work, the idea of spending time cooking a decent meal seems too exhausting to accomplish.

The first challenge CMG is facing is increased food costs. To overcome this challenge, the company should invest in more independently owned and operated farms. It 100% has to maintain its “food with integrity" values because its success is largely dependent them. The second challenge the company is facing is slow sales growth.
