Background: Publix is a supermarket chain that opened its doors in 1930. A huge characteristic of the store is that it has always cared about their customers. The founder, George W. Jenkins stressed customer service and quality when he first opened and these values hold true to this day. These values paid-off as Jenkins was able to open over five stores during the Great Depression. Jenkins was ahead of his time (http://www.fundinguniverse.com/company-histories/publix-super-markets-inc-history/). “It is no stranger to social media with at least 2.7 million fans combined across Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram and it sets the standard for what customer-company interaction on social media should look like; much when you walk into a Publix Store” (Matthews, 2015).
Have you ever talked about tea before in your life, or ever heard about Tea? People don’t even think about having a cup of tea, people usually think about having a cup of coffee in the mornings. Today tea isn’t as important as it used to be back in the Victorian Era times. Tea was important to Victorian Era life because it was part of their everyday life.

The third issue for Trader Joe’s is their lack of social media presence. Trader Joe’s from their beginning has used a customer newsletter and occasional radio ads in order to promote their brand, and these advertising methods have not changed with the introduction and prevalence of social media. Many brands nowadays are seeking to gain a competitive advantage over the
McDonald’s can use the power of social media to interact with its consumers to understand their grievances. Perhaps the negative publicity that the company has received is due to lack of proper interaction with the customers (Selcke, 2012). Through social media such as Facebook and Twitter, the company can enlighten the public on the quantity of calories that is present in every food item. Millions of McDonald’s customers can be reached via Facebook and Twitter. The company should use its Facebook pages to apologize for any bad decisions, set the record straight, and even seek advice from its consumers to enhance positive publicity (Selcke, 2012).
Recently, the Coca-Cola Company laid out its growth plan in its 2020 vision, and it plans to double its system revenue, increase its total servings to three billion per day, and raise its operation margins (Banks, 2016). The company has several reasons relating to its economies of scale and cost reductions that would make it realize its strategy. The Coca-Cola Company owns one of the world 's strongest nonalcoholic beverage brands, and its brand qualifies as a billion-dollar brand in nineteen countries across the world (Foster, 2014). Each of the Coca-Cola’s brands generated about fivehundred million to one billion dollars annually in revenue (Collier, 2014). Currently, the company holds the leadership position in the world 's soda industry with a market share of 41 percent (Banks, 2016). Besides, Coca-Cola enjoys a stable global distribution system in two-hundred countries and owns more vehicles than both FedEx and UPS combined (Elmore, 2016). The company, therefore, has a huge moat with significant economies of scale that none of its competitors can beat or copy.

Imagine having access to 1Billion potential customers or even 500 million; what an amazing benefit this would be to Cameron?s Coffee in the world of advertising. There is technology available to give Cameron?s Coffee this type of exposure.

Tea was declared the National Drink of England in 1784. The eighteenth century saw the transformation of tea as an everyday necessity for the poor and working class of the British society. To meet the domestic demand at home, the British East India Company imported great volumes of tea from China. The tea import increased from an estimated 64 tons in 1711 to 6800 tons in 1791. Even heavy import tax could not deter an increasingly expanding domestic market for the Chinese tea. As tea drinking had become obsession with the British society, consumption of tea replaced home-brewed beer, gin, milk and traditional infusions of indigenous plants. This great transformation in the consumption pattern of British society led to the commodification of

Once implemented, in my opinion, Minnick’s strategy should impact the company successfully. Coke has been a leader in the carbonated drink industry for years, but they are missing out on another opportunity that can put them a step ahead of everyone else. By expanding and diversifying their product line, Coke is maximizing its exposure in the industry. With the new age came new consumer trends and demands. In order to stay ahead, Coke must enter new market segments to keep up with the other competitors in the industry, such as PepsiCo. By entering new segments with innovative products, Coca-Cola can capture a new audience and expand in untapped market niches. The company would increase profitability by generating income from an additional segment outside of the already successful carbonated-drink category that didn’t previously exist.
Due to differences in culture and perception between non-Chinese and Chinese Australia; Chatimes exotic flavors of its tea; may limit its appeal to non-Chinese Australians as these flavors may be considered too foreign and therefore unappealing. Chatimes primary marketing towards Chinese Australian’s may also limit ‘bubble tea’s appeal’, as non-Chinese Australians may be unable to identify with the product and therefore reluctant to try it.
