Second market segment is the High Growth Market, which is the market with the higher chances of expansion and franchising including China, Italy, Poland, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland and the Netherlands.

Competitive environments are defined by the identity, track record, financial strength and market share of key competitors.

Fast food restaurants have been enjoyed by billions worldwide for more than half of a century. Fundamentally, the Baby Boomer generation, born between 1946 and 1964 (Halls), was raised on these establishments. It was a simultaneous phenomenon; while multinational fast food giants such as McDonald’s saw their rise to prominence in the 1950s, the babies of this generation were just being born, and as they grew up, they were highly exposed to these corporations. Whether it was through watching the commercials marketed to children featuring the iconic Ronald McDonald, or by seeing the road signs of fast food establishments which were large enough to be seen from many blocks away, the ‘Boomers’ were a generation heavily influenced by marketing

Porter’s five forces is an effective tool used to analyse competitive markets. Porter’s five forces looks at different aspects which the business interacts with daily such as the supplier Power, Buyer power, competitive rivalry , the threat of substitute products and services and the threat of new entrants. These aspects reside in the macro-environment; therefore the business has no control over these aspects. However, KFC and Nando’s may influence these aspects and these aspects also influence the business. Problems experienced in the macro environment can contribute to the success of the business. This tool was developed by Michael Porter for analysing the industry within which the business operates. This tool is very useful as it looks at the industry within which the business is operating as a whole.
The majority of Americans enjoy fast food like bees enjoy their honey. Fast food is hard not to love due to families experiencing fast paced days, parents who work more than 20 hours a week, and having children with picky appetites can be rough. For most American families, it can be a challenge to not consider eating fast food more than once a week. The fast food industry has grown tremendously through the years. The one restaurant that is known all over the world for their golden arches and their big macs is McDonalds. With knowledge and personal experiences, I can say that McDonalds is by far the worst fast food restaurant in America. I believe this due to how unhealthy the food is for our bodies, the disturbing facts about the happy meals, the poor service, and the non-cleanliness of the restaurant.
It is summer in Ghana and I’m walking down a block in my neighborhood. The air is hazy and dense and the smell of food fills every corner. A city that never used to have any of foreign foods, now filled with the aroma and signs of fast food restaurants. As I walked, I realize that there was only one whole food market. Meanwhile, a McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried Chicken were seen on multiple corners. Another thing I noticed: the majority of people entering the fast food market are from places that were once filled with only traditionalists. A region where its former citizens used to invest their time in cooking local traditional food and sold them to the public and families. These same communities have now become so westernized that they neglect the traditional side of diet. Instead, everyone now focus on the new fast food market. People are flocking with their families into the fast food restaurants. Watching the differences between those who entered the supermarket and those who entered the McDonalds’s, I couldn’t help but think about complications minorities in the United States face from the fast food market.
Due to globalization and increased competition in the fast food industry, a very complex environment is created for McDonald’s. There are various internal and external environmental factors affecting the functions of McDonald’s corporation and demands for new innovations. The factors are as follows:
More than an exposé of the fast-food industry, Chew on This is explicit about why kids need to be informed. The authors profile real teens whose lives have been affected by fast food. They talk to an eighteen-year-old boy who decides to have gastric bypass surgery; a twelve-year-old girl in Alaska who launched a "Stop the Pop" campaign to remove soda machines from her school; a teenage boy who helped unionize the McDonald's franchise where he worked — the first to do so — only to see the restaurant close shortly after; and two sisters living on a traditional ranch.
Porter’s Five Forces was developed in 1979 by Michael Porter as a framework to assess and evaluate the competitive position of a company in an industry. It is based on the theory that there are five forces which identify the attractiveness and competitive strength of an industry. It is helpful to gain an understanding of a firm’s current positon and the position that the firm may look to capture in the future. Porter’s five forces are also used to
The shift towards greener and fresher food is a notion that more and more people are adhering to. While irrational people consider this to be a fad, making adjustments to prolong one’s life is a movement in American culture that is not predicted to go away. Although most people desire to eat cleaner, healthy eating is considered to be an expensive luxury that underprivileged people do not have access to. Indigent college kids and low income families can only afford what is the cheapest, which is most commonly the unhealthiest. Healthy eating is an indulgence that only the wealthy can maintain due to the government increasing the price of produce, the high cost of organic food, and limited healthy food options in high poverty neighborhoods. Penniless Americans are more likely to suffer from serious health complications due to poor dietary choices.
Within the United States, 12.7% of households had been food insecure at some point within 2015, meaning that not enough money was had to spend on food. ("United States Department of Agriculture Economic Research Service", par. 3) With this in mind, one of the largest problems when it comes to nutrition in the developed countries of the world is the availability of nutritious food to the lower classes because lower quality processed food is easier to obtain than nutritious food. This only seems to be a trend within developed countries so this argument will only focus on the developed countries such as the United States and France. Underdeveloped countries are left outside of these studies as they do not have widespread statistical values for any of their nutrition at any of the levels of
