S.W.O.T. Analysis of Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf

STRENGTH * Company’s marketing strategy

All the stores of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf were located at high traffic, high visibility locations in each market. The market entry strategies use by the coffee shop in managing their foreign franchisees when expanding into Asia including master franchising and company owned-stores. A master franchise is a person or entity that provides services to franchisees in a specified territory, typically a major market, geographical region or even one or more countries. The marketing approach is essential to gain a competitive advantage in the foreign market. The construct included market entry, site location, and market positioning. The reason is to choose master franchise as its form of franchising is because of that the master franchising was the most popular mode of entry into distant band cultural dissimilar market such as Asia. The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf found that the sale of a master franchise as a quick method of establishing a franchise operation. Instead of sub-franchising the units, the master franchisees prefer to own and run the entire unit. The reason also is too attributed largely to be limited size of the marketplace as the products are targeted at specific niche rather than the general public. It entered Singapore, Malaysia, and Taiwan by master franchising. In the other hand, the coffee shop prefers to use company-owned stores in Hong Kong, Australia and United States. Whereas for the more complex markets is more favored like Japan, Philippines and the Middle East. The company is quite geographically dispersed in Asia. * Recruitment, training and recognition program

Coffee Bean

...Coffee Bean, Inc. (CBI), is a processor and distributor of a variety of blends of coffee. The company buys coffee beans from around the world and roasts, blends, and packages them for resale. CBI currently has 40 different coffees that it sells to gourmet shops in one-pound bags. The major cost of the coffee is raw materials. However, the company’s predominately automated roasting, blending, and packing process requires a substantial amount of manufacturing overhead. The company uses relatively little direct labor. Some of CBI’s coffees are very popular and sell in large volumes, while a few of the newer blends have very low volumes. CBI prices its coffee at manufacturing cost plus a markup of 30%. If CBI’s prices for certain coffees are significantly higher than market, adjustments are made to bring CBI’s prices more into alignment with the market since customers are somewhat price conscious. For the coming year, CBI’s budget includes estimated manufacturing overhead cost of $3,000,000. CBI assigns manufacturing overhead to products on the basis of direct labor-hours. The expected direct labor cost totals $600,000, which represents 50,000 hours of direct labor time. Based on the sales budget and expected raw materials costs, the company will purchase and use $6,000,000 of raw materials (mostly coffee beans) during the year. The expected costs for direct materials and direct labor for one-pound bags of two of the company’s coffee products appear below: |  ...

Coffee Crisis Analysis

...The crisis took the form of a decline in coffee prices at world wide levels since 2001.All farmers who grew coffee suffered income losses; especially small farmers in poor and low developed economies like latin America, Asia and Africa. Almost 25 million farmers were hit financially leading to more urgent, negative social consequence. Prices of coffee are based on the composite price index of the International Coffee Organization. It uses prices of two main types of coffee-arabica and robusta. This shows a decline from 141 cents to 52 cents per pound between 1984 to 2003. EQUILIBRIUM / MARKET PRICE FOR COFFEE This is found where the demand curve intersects the supply curve. The equilibrium price occurs at P* and the quantity traded is Q*. What happened in early part of the decade of 2000 was that supply was high but demand was falling. We illustate this on the diagram below CAUSES FOR DEREASE IN DEMAND The main reason for a fall in demand for coffee was the decline in cosumption in USA. This nation consumes 20% ofthe total world coffee. Its per capita consumption of coffee fell from 36 gallons to 17 gallons per person between 1970 and 1990. The rise of alternatives like soft drinks and others like tea can be the cause. However demand was somewhat rescued bythe rise in consumption from UK and other developed nations. CAUSES FOR RISE IN SUPPLY • Brazil and Vietnam are major coffee producers. After the frost years of 1990s Brazilians developed new......

Violence & Coffee Beans

...Sakko Unknown™ HUMA205 Violence & Coffee Beans Graffiti (Stencil) Art Graffiti stencil street art has definitely come a long way as far as acceptance in recent but still has an unconventional niche – mostly due to the fact that it is illegal. This art form can take on many purposes usually that of personal expression, social cause, or visual delight. One of the most notable artists of this genre is a man who goes simply by the name of Banksy. In this piece of his, he combines his passion of street fighting with his pacifist ardor in the depiction of a protester whose Molotov cocktail transforms into a bouquet of flowers. It is a two dimensional piece done with mainly spray paint and stencil created by the artist using a material such as cardboard. The artist draws the image on to the card board and using an exacto knife he carves out the image. He then locates a good spot on a wall or building and proceeds to set the stencil in place and go over the needed areas with spray-paint. In this image is monochromatic the only color that is used is black; using implied motion, the artist finds a way to give a lifelike feeling. This is an example of figurative art that uses emphasis to draw attention to the bouquet of flowers. The flowers contrast the assumed intention of the protester. The message and symbolism I feel the artist was trying to send was that of nonviolence and love. Retrieved from:......
