In this paper I will compare my favorite restaurant, Olive Garden, to its most direct competition which in this case is Milestones Bar and Grill. These two restaurants are in competition because they target the same market and are located within one block of each other. Each restaurant is owned by one of top restaurant companies in North America. Olive Garden is owned by Darden Restaurants which also owns Red Lobster, Smokey Bones, Bahama Breeze, Longhorn Steakhouse, and Seasons 52. Cara Operations Ltd. is the owner of the Milestones chain as well as Montana's, Swiss Chalet, Coza, Kelsey's, and several others. Although there are several other restaurants within the same area as the two I have chosen, I
In order to examine my question thoroughly, I would need the court documents written on both The Slaughterhouse Cases (1872) and Williams v. Mississippi (1872). I would also need legal scholarly reviews about the ramifications and motivations of the cases. I would need primary sources of information from newspapers and articles from the time period to gage public opinion about the decisions. This may shed light onto the Justice’s mindsets during ruling. (For example, did the public opinion differ in the case of white butchers invoking the 14th amendment in comparison to a black man on trial for murder as in Williams v. Mississippi (1872)? Would public opinion sway the judges?) I would also desire information about the specific Supreme Court

Before the court is a negligence claim against Interstate, who filed a motion to dismiss based on lack of jurisdiction. When determining if the court should accept the motion to dismiss, it must first examine if the contact was purposefully directed at the forum state by the defendant so as to abide by the notion of fair warning. Burger King Corp. v. Rudzewicz, 471 U.S. 462, 472 (1985). When determining if the contact is purposeful in a tort claim the standard is a tortious contact intentionally directed to purposefully produce a tortious effect in the forum state. Calder v. Jones, 465 U.S. 783, 789 (1984). Determining if a contact is purposeful relies on what it is not; it is not foreseeable. Mere foreseeability of causing injury is not a

Notably, though qualitative techniques employ intuition, they also incorporate judgment (Chindia, 2016). Relevant opinion is taken from experts and evaluated to determine their feasibility. Since sales persons interact more often with consumers then the likelihood of providing an accurate form of speculation is high. Therefore, when short term Company arrangements need to be made then sales persons will be involved in the exercise. Qualitative techniques also include surveys regarding the needs and preferences of consumers (Chindia, 2016). Thus, a qualitative survey will help in identifying how profitable it will be for a company to produce a certain product. Notably, the Delphi method is also applied in qualitative techniques where experts make initial

Saxonville Sausage Company, a 70-year-old privately held family business, produces a variety of pork sausage products, thus already having a loyal customer base. Their Italian sausage, presently branded as Vivio, became part of the Italian sausage market in 2002, yet has experienced flat sales.

They must now determine an ideal name for their line of Italian sausage, and if they should continue nationally with the Vivio brand name, or create different tactics, including a name change, in positioning the product.
