WENDY’S CHILLI 1. The cost of ground beef is a joint cost. The ground beef is made into beef patties which are used first for hamburger. However, the “well-done” beef patties that cannot be served as “hot ‘n juicy” old-fashioned hamburgers will be used to make chili. At this point, the ground beef patties used for hamburgers and the ground beef patties used to chili split off and become separately identifiable. 2. Hamburgers account for 55% of Wendy’s total sale, while chili only composes for 5%. Therefore, chili is a by-product of hamburger.
The meat that goes into making chili is a by-product of hamburgers. The over-cooked meat is used as input in the process of making chili instead of being thrown away. It enables Wendy to avoid incurring extra costs. 3. Option 1: The cost of chili does not vary with the seasons. During the month of October through March, 60% of annual chili sale occurred. It happened approximately 10% of the time; it became necessary to cook meat specifically for use in making chili. However, the price of ground beef does not change. Even though the total cost of making chili increases, the unit cost remains unchanged. There is no need to increase the price as well.
Option 2: : The cost of chili does vary with the seasons. During the month of October through March, 60% of annual chili sale occurred. It happened approximately 10% of the time; it became necessary to cook meat specifically for use in making chili, which increases the cost of making chili. The total cost of making each 8-ounce serving of chili is $1.13 when ground beef is used specifically for chili. Wendy’s should increase the price, which currently is $0.99, from October to March in order to make up for the extra cost incurred. 4. a) 5. Ground beef is one of the direct materials in making chili. The increase in ground beef price leads…...

Gold Star Chili: Customer and Market Knowledge Although no discussion questions are raised at the end of the case (a disturbing fact for some students who are overly focused on getting the “right answer”) some issues for discussion would seem obvious. Customer and Market Focus Strengths • Gold Star has segmented its customers into three groups -- franchisees, restaurant customers, and retail customers. They have carefully defined the characteristics of each. • To learn from customers, the company relies on face-to-face contacts, focus groups, customer comment cards, customer surveys, and structured meetings. Each of these is tailored to meeting the need of franchisees at various stages of growth of the franchise. Some of these include: - Geo-demographic analysis of locations prior to building - Use of Franchise Service Representatives (FSR’s) to stay in touch with franchisees and their needs when placing orders - Opportunities to listen and learn through regular franchise meeting and training sessions - Regular comprehensive surveys using questionnaires • Evaluation of product and service features takes place through formal and informal means, such as: - Informal determination of product and service features through quarterly and semi-annual meetings, daily and weekly phone calls to FSR’s, and discussions with delivery personnel. - Store managers’ contacts and discussion with “regular” customers - Annual......

Wendy’s Chili: a Costing Conundrum

...UVA-C-2206 WENDY’S CHILI: A COSTING CONUNDRUM What happens to a successful company when it loses its founder, senior chairman, advertising icon, and beloved leader? That was the question being asked about Wendy’s International, Inc., in January 2002 after Dave Thomas, 69, passed away from cancer. In the words of Jack Schuessler, the company’s chairman and CEO, “Dave was our patriarch. He was the heart and soul of our company.” Without him, the company would never be the same. However, Dave Thomas left behind a legacy about values, ethics, product quality, customer satisfaction, employee satisfaction, community service and shareholder value that provided a solid foundation on which to continue the success the company had experienced for more than thirty years. Still, the patriarch was gone, and the future was uncertain. How It Began Wendy’s International, Inc., was founded by R. David Thomas in Columbus, Ohio, in November 1969. Prior to that time, Thomas had purchased an unprofitable Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise in the Columbus area, turned it around, and subsequently sold it back to Kentucky Fried Chicken at a substantial profit. He then became a cofounder of Arthur Treacher’s Fish & Chips. So, at the time he founded Wendy’s, Thomas was no stranger to the quick-service restaurant industry. Although he had been involved with businesses specializing in chicken and fish, Thomas’s favorite food was hamburgers, and he frequently complained that there was no...

Chili Prices

...Macroeconomics Short Essay 1 Chili Prices hot on short supply and rising demand PK KRISHNAKUMAR & JAYASHREE BHOSALE, ET Bureau Jul 16, 2015, 04.00AM IST Tags: * (Meanwhile, keeping with…) KOCHI/PUNE: Chili prices are getting hotter due to supply squeeze and rising demand. The prices of the largest exported spice from India are hovering around Rs 95-Rs 100 a kg, 20 per cent more than the prices a year ago, and may race to a new high depending on the demand, trade insiders say Chili crop was down by 15 per cent-20 per cent due to erratic rains last year. This along with high export demand in the end of 2014-15 seems to have dried up the stock, particularly in Andhra Pradesh — the largest chili producing region. "At present the cold storages in Guntur are showing 30 per cent-40 per cent deficiency," said Ravipati Peraiah, MD at Vijayakrishna Spice Farm, a dry chili manufacturer and supplier based in Bellary. The annual chili production in the country is about 13-14 lakh tonne. Rising prices have led to hoarding, which in turn affects supply and boost prices further. "About 75 per cent of the available stock is with the traders and only the rest is with the farmers," said Venkat Rosaiah, president of Guntur Chilli Commission Agents Association. "Heavy purchase by China and Bangladesh last year has created pressure on the stock and has lifted the price. But if Andhra gets good rainfall in the coming weeks, the prices will cool." The prices are expected to go......
