Starbucks is the largest coffeehouse company in the world and originates from Seattle, Washington. The first Starbucks was opened in Seattle on March 30, 1971. The three founders met while they were students at the University of San Francisco: English teacher Jerry Baldwin, history teacher Zev Siegl, and writer Gordon Bowker. The founders were inspired by Alfred Peet, coffee roasting entrepreneur, to sell his high-quality coffee beans and equipment. Since the first Starbucks opening in 1971, 18,065 stores have followed. Starbucks is the premier roaster, marketer and retailer of specialty coffee in the world, operating in 60 countries. Starbucks is also a very profitable company; it has steadily made money each year since 2008 and has been increasing the amount of money made each year substantially. Last year, 2012, Starbucks had almost two billion dollars in profit, which is almost four times as much as what they made it 2008. This increase in income was caused by the massive growth of the company and all the new coffeehouses being opened in emerging markets such as China and Japan. On top of record high profits Starbucks also had record high profit margins, being 15%, so every one dollar in revenue they received they made fifteen cents off that dollar. Starbucks came out with a lot of new innovations such as Starbucks’ own coffee brewer for the home, the Verissimo. Also new varieties of drinks and food were introduced that provide the customer with more variety and choices, which generate more revenue.

Analysis of Research Report

...Analysis of Research Report Results Analysis of Research Report Results In a nation where over two-thirds of adults are overweight and over one-third are obese, many Americans turn to commercial diet and weight loss programs in an attempt to shed the extra pounds and incorporate a healthy lifestyle (National Institute of Diabetes and Kidney Diseases, 2011). According to Gardner, Kiazand, Alhassan, Kim, Stafford, Balise, Kraemer, and King, (2007) the health benefits of weight loss, have been well established. However, the debate regarding the effectiveness of low-fat, high-carbohydrate diets versus low-carbohydrate diets continues and very limited evidence is available to evaluate other diets (Gardner, et. al 2007). In a study published in JAMA in 2007, 4 weight loss diets ranging from low to high carbohydrate intake were compared for their effects on weight loss and metabolic variables (Gardner,, 2007). The study was conducted for a period of twelve months and consisted of over 300 premenopausal women 40 years old on average who were either overweight or obese. The women were randomly assigned to one of the following diets, Atkins, Zone, LEARN, or Ornish and participants received instructions weekly for 2 months and then again at a 10-month follow-up. When analyzing data, statistical procedures are used to make inferences about the population being studied. In the A to Z weight loss study the following statistical procedures were used, analysis of......

Xerox Analysis Report

...Horizontal analysis is an approach used by potential investors who want to examine the trend in profitability of a specific company. Investors could look at items such as sales and see a rise or decline but most prefer to look deeper into the company, as horizontal analysis is “only a first indication of the financial position of the company” (Hann, P. 2011). Because of this, vertical analysis is often required as more evidence to back up these claims. Generally the first item looked at on the Horizontal Analysis is Revenues. For Xerox, going back three years, it appears as though they have an upward trend in sales right now. They jumped from 102.9% in 2011 to 103.5% in 2012. The rise in sales in both upward and steady. Next, an investor might be likely to look at the Horizontal data for Gross Profit for a firm. Here the investor will discover that the percentage in profit has dropped from 2011 to 2012. It was a large dip from 99.57% to 94.20% at last tally, in 2012. This means the company is experiencing a downward trend. To discover the reasons why, the investor might then want to take a look at the cost of sales for Xerox. The cost of sales in Xerox’s case is significantly higher than their actual sales, and this has been an upward trend as well, since the cost of sales for this company also appears to be steadily climbing. Cost of sales is an important piece of information for an investor to have. “Professional investors pay close attention to the cost of sales......

Recurring Themes: Health concern is the biggest issue to general people when it comes down to fast food. Despite of their great they are incapable to promote good health. In 2012 Annual report, McDonalds claimed to overcome these issues by providing food with quality and taste. By adding real fruits, vegetables, salad to its menu, it has taken the food quality to a new level. Moreover, McDonalds has also become more eco-friendly.

Analysis Report

...Analysis Report for Week 2 1. Poor planning- Going into business requires a lot of planning, for example, financial planning (Budget proposal) and market planning (Market Plan). At CanGo they were able to see some initial success without the formal planning in place, but now that they are introducing an online gaming segment that will put the entire company at risk if they do not initially put a plan in place. My recommendation would be to create a formal budget for each of the marketing segments that CanGo is in. The team needs to know what resources are available to them. This way they can focus their efforts on the areas where they can get the most bang for their buck. They will be able to utilize their funds in the best way possible in order to generate more revenue or at least keep up with demand. Some projects will need to be forgone to insure the funds are available to support operations. 2. Not having a business strategy set in place- At CanGo success was an accident. They did not go into business with a strategy in place for success, but none the less they were able to create a business that flourished. Although they did not start with a good plan in place there is still time to put a strategy in place and create some structure in the organization. My recommendation would be to perform a SWOT analysis. This self-assessment will be able to show CanGo what procedures and routines are working well and which ones need some improvement. It will also identify some......

...PART TWO: ANALYSIS REPORT Education becomes more effective when there is a combination of theory and practical knowledge. Theoretical knowledge achieved perfection with the implication of practical knowledge. The internship program can combine theoretical knowledge with practical situation. A practical orientation program is really essential for a student as our educational system is mostly text based. Professional experience is very important to be established.
