The objective of the thesis is “To compare and study Barista & Café Coffee Day, identify areas of excellence and areas needing improvement; and provide suggestions for such improvement”. The aim of this Thesis is to successfully compare two prominent service sector companies on a common platform, analyze their working and performance, and highlight what they are doing well, while providing suggestions and recommendations for improvement.

Barista and Café Coffee Day were chosen because of their identical pattern of functioning and growth. They are the only two major players in the national coffee café industry, and their customers consider both as interchangeable brands. This is why it is important to study how these brands differentiate themselves from each other, and attempt to improve brand loyalty amongst their customers.

Halloween vs. Day of the Dead

...Halloween vs. Day of the Dead Amy Barrows Com/170 10/31/2012 Margaret Munger Similar traditions are held between the Day of the Dead and Halloween, yet they have very different origins. They both started out as their own separate festivals/celebrations but over time they gained either Catholic or Christian tendencies. Which only served to make them even more similar, leading confusion for many Americans now a days. Most people know of the similarities but do not know of the origins of either! Even most Americans who celebrate Halloween do not know of it is origins! Day of the dead was a celebration to celebrate the Aztec goddess Mictecacihuatl, Lady of the dead. They celebrated for about a month long in their calendar what all know as August. They had all the same traditions as they do now but back then the altars/shrines they made were at the graves themselves to bring the family/descend person back to the land of the living. Aztecs would spread the flor de muertos (flower of the dead) from the grave sites to their homes. A way of leading the lost souls to their families and loved ones. Aztecs would even make foods and treats with the deceased name on the calaveras de azucar (skull of sugar). This all went on for many centuries until the Spaniards came and influenced their religion with more Catholic ties. Example being they changed the month-long celebration to be only two days coinciding with November 1, All saints day and November......

Shade vs Sun Grown Coffee

...Shaded vs Sun Based Coffee Over the last three and a half decades the world has moved from shade grown coffee to sun grown coffee which has substantially changed the Earths’ landscape. Almost 60% of the trees have been cut under which coffee was grown. The shaded coffee plants were resting places for migrating songbirds like warblers, orioles, wood thrushes and fly catchers. Thhese coffee plants were their food. Now there are fewer species of birds in the sun shaded coffee plants as compared to shade grown coffee plants. Many insects like orchids, amphibians and reptiles lived on shaded coffee plants but they cannot live on sun grown coffee plants. Stats show that sun coffee varieties has three times more production that than shaded coffee. But many chemicals as fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides and fungicides are used for their growth. These plants have very small roots which increases erosion. It is true that most of the worlds’ coffee produce is now from sun grown but that was not always the case. Initially most of the produce was shade grown. Most of the varieties of coffee were traditionally intolerant of direct sunlight. Trees provided the proper environment like organic wastes and moisture for proper growth. Nitrogen-fixing legumes are also present in this enviroemnt which convert nitrogen in usable forms. This environment has many natural advantages like it keeps the earth cool, creates clouds for rainfall, controls insects and provide them living place.......

However, to keep maturing and be relevant, CCD needs to come up with ways to react to the entry of Starbucks in the market, which is the leading coffee chain company in the world. CCD should decide on how strong and forcefully it should react towards Starbuck’s entry, based on whether there is enough space for both brands to be provided in India’s growing market or not.

...corrective measures which are to deal with the immediate threats that Starbucks will bring and preventive measures which are to address the future threats of Starbucks. We will first look at the corrective measures which CCD should implement to deal with the immediate threat that Starbucks is bringing. As mentioned previously, Starbucks which offers premium coffee to a group of price insensitive customers, is going to threaten CCD's premium coffee business, specifically CCD's lounge and square in the short run. Hence CCD in order to reduce it susceptibility towards the threat of Starbucks to its premium coffee market, CCD should improve its brand equity in its premium coffee market so as to entice and retain its own customer base through improving its services and products offering in their premium coffee market stores and via mass marketing campaigns such as advertisement. CCD previously has advertised its brand through localised marketing initiatives and on site promotions however this lacks the effectiveness that mass marketing would bring. Hence by intensifying its mass marketing efforts to promote CCD's premium coffee products such as CCD's square and lounge, it would make CCD's products more recognizable and memorable for the public which would entice consumers to visit CCD's square and lounge. On the other hand, Starbucks which has a 'no advertising' strategy, can only depend on superior customer service and word-of-mouth to entice customers hence Starbucks would......

Coffee vs Wine

...“Coffee vs. Wine” Social, Economic and Production Methods overview of both industries. This class will end with a Coffee Cupping vs. Wine Tasting. Price: $25 per person. All proceeds will revert to the Specialty Coffee Institute. Coffee Social - The vast majority of coffee producers in the world are small farmers (2.5 to 5 hectares). They plant their land with crops they need for their food survival. The remainder is planted with coffee to get extra money to accommodate their other needs (cloth, health, etc.). The literacy and education of these coffee farmers is very low. The folks who get to university are a very rare exception. Folks who finished high school are an exception. Standard of Living – Survival agriculture is the right word to describe the circumstances most of these farmers live in. Coffee producing countries are in general Third World Countries. A small group of coffee farmers have a high standard of living. Most of these have much larger farms and in general their education is at college level. Production Methods - Coffee and wine have a lot of similarities at the agricultural level. Processes are similar in both industries but change dramatically after the coffees (and grapes) get in the mill (winery) to be treated. Also, while wine making stops its process when bottling takes place, coffee still has to be submitted to roasting by a roast master who dramatically alters the finished product. (I like to compare the actions of a wine maker to that......

Good Day vs Bad Day

...GS1145 Bendall Short Answer 5.1 Good Day vs Bad Day Breckinridge School of Nursing Barbara Walker Abstract Anyone working as a nursing assistant has chosen a very challenging path. Poor compensation, workplace politics, short staffing, conflict between coworkers, irate and difficult residents, miscommunication, heavy lifting and the loss of those for whom we care all make for a tough work environment. I definitely have locked myself in the linen closet to get myself together moments. So, why do I keep coming back? Why do I stay? First of all, I embrace the challenge. I thrive on it. In my life, it is a rare and beautiful thing to be able to bring order to chaos rather than the other way around. I work at Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital and I have to say, the patients inspire me every day. We have a variety of patients; with cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease, cancer, dementia, brain and spinal cord injuries and just knee or hip replacements that still laugh and love and find joy in nothing short of amazing. It’s such an incredible gift to be a part of their lives…to walk them through the tough days and celebrate with them during their triumphs. They have shown me the uselessness of the word impossible. They all touch my heart, and I hope I touch their heart too. Good Day vs Bad Day I have to say that I’m proud of the work that I do. Nursing assistants come in all shapes and sizes. We are both male and female. Our Physical appearances are different...
