Pepsico is company that originated within the soft drink business with the famous Pepsi. The name PepsiCo appeared in 1965 when the Donald Kendall, former CEO of the company merged the soft drink company with Frito-Lay, a snack food company. Later many others businesses were added, mostly through external growth (PFS was added as a way reduce costs), among which are Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and KFC. A- SWOT Analysis Strengths Diversified yet complementary activities within the food business o Good outlets for distribution of Pepsi fountain sodas Allows more reactivity Highly decentralized organization o Large, while not complete, coverage of the restaurant industry Strong innovative spirit within the company Well segmented restaurant brands Internal movement of manager allows good experience sharing

Weaknesses Strong resistance to higher management control o Makes it difficult to answer some new demand of the market such as single PepsiCo’s contact Independence of businesses makes it difficult to put synergies in place Group operates competitors to its potential customers o Burger king, for example is a potential customer for Pepsi, but a competitor to PespiCo’s restaurants No shared and established strategy within the brand, just based on a good practice agreement Lack of cooperation between brands (The Toilet Paper victory)

Opportunities Drive more synergies between brands Share general headquarters tasks and eliminate duplicate cost within the holding

Determinants of Cart Abandonment

...Abstract Despite placing items in virtual shopping carts, online shoppers frequently abandon them —an issue that perplexes online retailers and has yet to be explained by scholars. Here, we identify key drivers to online cart abandonment and suggest cognitive and behavioral reasons for this non-buyer behavior. We show that the factors influencing consumer online search, consideration, and evaluation play a larger role in cart abandonment than factors at the purchase decision stage. In particular, many customers use online carts for entertainment or as a shopping research and organizational tool, which may induce them to buy at a later session or via another channel. Our framework extends theories of online buyer and non-buyer behavior while revealing new inhibitors to buying in the Internet era. The findings offer scholars a broad explanation of consumer motivations for cart aban- donment. For retailers, the authors provide suggestions to improve purchase conversion rates and multi-channel management. Keywords Online shopping cart abandonment . Online buyer behavior theory. E-tail .E-commerce To more fully understand buyer behavior, it is crucial to also examine consumer “non-buying” behavior. Non- buying behavior is especially apparent in an online retailing context, where many shoppers place items in their virtual shopping carts yet do not complete the purchase—thereby abandoning their cart. Known as virtual or online shopping cart abandonment, we define this behavior as......

Proposed Acquisitions of California Pizza Kitchen and Carts of Colorado by Pepsico

...The proposed acquisitions of California Pizza Kitchen and Carts of Colorado by Pepsico 1. Should PepsiCo buy California Pizza Kitchen? For both acquisitions it's more about what they add to PepsiCo, not what value PepsiCo adds to them Pros: - needs to acquire CPK to learn casual dining. That's where the growth is, and internal attempts to develop casual dining in Pizza Hut Cafe have failed. whether CPK is merely a passing yuppie fad, or if it is a long-term market segment doesn’t matter to PepsiCo if it merely wants to learn casual dining. - PepsiCo startups failing Cons: - possibly PepsiCo’s failure to develop a casual chain internally, along with the real differences between fast food and sit-down dining, will prevent it from succeeding. •New segment that PepsiCo doesn't know - Yuppie casual dining • $11 check, dinner on pizza dough - PepsiCo ignorant of key success factors •high level waiter service •PR not advertising key to marketing •capital cost $1 - $2m, sales $3m not $800k, $800k. •New untested concept - 25 restaurants, 8 states, $34m sales, $3/4m net income - may be a "fad" •only seven years old - may not stretch beyond Yuppiedom 2. Should they buy Carts of Colorado? Pros: - while CoC's $8m sales is very small for Pepsico, the real market size is the revenue from non-traditional PODs, and this is potentially enormous ($2 billion to PepsiCo alone) The real reason to own CoC is to preempt Coke and MacDonalds in the best......

Ideo Shopping Cart

...IDEO Shopping Cart The IDEO Shopping Cart was a successful invention. It was successful because it was able to answer the problems of the normal shopping cart we see in various stores. Although it did not sell in the States, its idea went on and was found in France though a different variation. The IDEO cart was the invention that sparked others to build upon, that made it a success. What kept it from becoming mainstream in the U.S. was the use of the small baskets. The full size shopping carts were able to handle bulky items with ease such as 50lb dog food bags, televisions, and other items that were too large or heavy for the baskets. Most stores that require shopping carts carry heavy bulky items that the little baskets wouldn’t be able to handle. Considering that these larger items where usually the profit makers for stores, the store owners did not see the benefit. IDEO should have marketed the cart to stores that required carts but rarely sold items that would not fit in a single basket. Some wonder if it was ahead of its time. The shopping cart for the most part was ahead of its time. People are used to grabbing a cart and shopping, no stopping to put baskets in and out, no worries about hanging bags tearing from the cart on the way to the car. People were used to the simple big basket cart. It worked for them for decades and they did not see any reason to change something that is/was working. The big selling point to most people would have been...

...Maria A Rivas Professor Jack Huddleston Case Study 5 HRM584 February 05, 2015 Problems at a Glance As the Vice President of the Human Resource multinationals of the Europe I noticed that some of the protocol followed by some of the European companies is rather unethical and could use extensive measures to ensure that they are compliant. Some of issues that I was made aware of are as follows; there are strings of protests from immigrants, dissatisfaction of employment status and lack of consideration from employers, discriminatory employment practices, and possible lawsuits. According to the European Commission with regards to employment, social affairs and inclusion, “tackling discrimination at work is their goal. Workers have the right to equal opportunities, especially for men and women. It is illegal to discriminate against someone because of their racial and ethnic origin, religion and belief, disability, sexual orientation, and age” (European Commission, n.d). Therefore, it seems to me as if some of these companies are facing themselves with major lawsuits and will need guidance on how to prevent from this happening. One of the issues that triggered such discriminatory action against an individual was when a graduate student, Ewe Kikuyu, submitted her Curriculum Vitae (CV) to multiple jobs sites. Ewe comes from an African descendant and upon her distributing her Curriculum Vitae; she did not receive one phone call or an interview. She......

From the Street Cart All the Way Up to the Exquisite Dining Table…

...From the Street Cart all the way up to the exquisite Dining Table… Based on the infamous common saying of “You are what you eat”; some may argue that they do not possess the freedom of choice in what they choose to eat on a daily basis throughout their life due to the external factors that affect their decision making. With limited income and resources, many people from the lower social backgrounds tend to have a restricted culinary menu of which they can opt to eat from. Investigating the other end of the scale of where the wealthier level of the social ladder are looked at closely; you will find the inverse of this trend where the range of eating preferences are limitless and not bound by any spending power restrictions, thus giving them the liberty to indulge in an abundance of edible choices. I am thoroughly interested in studying the eating habits of the wealthy and the un-wealthy classes in Egypt. My objective behind this research is to gain an understanding of the differences in terms of eating behavior according to their social background. My aim was to identify their likes, dislikes, thoughts, perceptions and motivations behind certain choices. By studying those factors closely, the motives behind consumption of different classes based on their economic circumstances were revealed. The reason behind this study was to yield significantly valuable information and insight into the eating habits of the rich and poor segments in Egypt. By doing this, I was able to......
