... Recommended Marketing strategies and programmers The marketing strategies should be aligned with the business objective sets above, to do so; some marketing recommendations will be suggested in order to help in the achievement of KFC’s objective in Africa. In general, my suggestion of marketing strategy in Africa, it is to relay more on customer satisfaction and loyalty as the new trend of marketing which gives customer the priority in every action taken by the KFC, that will actually inverse the organization chart from traditional to Modern one. (Please refer to appendix 2) Showing to Africans that KFC is not there to only generate profits, but also to help in the development of the their countries like: working with the governments to reduce the poverty, given some scholarships to student, sponsoring associations and advising the youth entrepreneurs, in how to star up their business. Adding to this investing lot of money on corporate social responsibility, all that will be reflect positively on the KFC brand and create word of mouth among people, businesses and governments, which can increase the awareness of KFC and get a easy access to all Africa’s opportunities.  Segmenting and targeting Children must be segmented separately and target with some menus which include toys and magic cards, also for weekends KFC can organize some competition of sport games or singing which can be opportunity for children to get together and have fun.

Service Marketing of Kfc

...Kentucky Fried Chicken: Background KFC, founded and also known as Kentucky Fried Chicken, is a chain of fast food restaurants based in Louisville, Kentucky, in the United States. KFC has been a brand and operating segment, termed a concept of Yum! Brands since 1997 when that company was spun off from PepsiCo as Tricon Global Restaurants Inc. KFC primarily sells chicken pieces, wraps, salads and sandwiches. While its primary focus is fried chicken, KFC also offers a line of grilled and roasted chicken products, side dishes and desserts. Outside the USA, KFC offers beef based products such as hamburgers or kebabs, poutine, pork based products such as ribs and other regional fare. The company was founded as Kentucky Fried Chicken by Colonel Harland Sanders in 1952, though the idea of KFC's fried chicken actually goes back to 1930. Although Sanders died in 1980, he remains an important part of the company's branding and advertisements, and "Colonel Sanders" or "The Colonel" is a metonym for the company itself. The company adopted KFC, an abbreviated form of its name, in 1991. Newer and remodeled restaurants will adopt the new logo and name, while older stores will continue to use the 1980s signage. Additionally, Yum! continues to use the abbreviated name freely in its advertising. | Type | Wholly owned subsidiary | Industry | Restaurants | Founded | 1930 (original)(North Corbin, Kentucky) 1952 (franchise)(South Salt Lake, Utah) | Founder(s) | Harland Sanders | ...

Strategy of Kfc

...Kentucky Fried Chicken(KFC) which is one of the Strategic Business Units (SBU) of Yum!Brands. We will give the profile of Yum!Brands and KFC, and also analyze the strategy of the company, its internal and external environment, its position vis-à-vis its competitors, its competitive advantage and how far it has come/how well it is doing today. We intend to focus on one local market, so in this project we are taking KFC China as our case study. We decided to choose Yum!Brands and specifically KFC as our project case study because we have noticed the rapid growth of the fast-food industry. Fast-food is a typical American trend which reflects the American eating culture of “grabbing a quick bite” so to speak. Today people are very busy, not only in America but all over the world. People have less time to sit and eat a home cooked meal, especially at lunch time when almost everyone is out of the house and working. The most convenient thing to do is to go for a “fast-food”. We noticed that this trend has even moved from being just a lunch-time substitute for home cooked meals to being a fun time meal between friends, colleagues and family. Some corporate bodies even order fast-food for meetings or corporate get-togethers. It is easy to hear that a company in the high-tech industry or car industry makes a lot of money, but when a company is founded to sell food, one cannot help but wonder if such a company can be profitable and if it uses business strategies like any other......

They specialize in burritos, burrito bowls and tacos, with choice of cilantro-lime rice, pinto or black beans, meat (braised carnitas or barbacoa, adobo-marinated and grilled chicken or steak) or guacamole, salsa and cheese or sour cream. (chipotle.com) Chipotle has opened its franchise in North America and Europe. It is time for it to explore new market, such as Asia. From the success of many western cuisine restaurants, such as McDonald’s and Pizza Hut, the capital of China, Beijing, would be a great potential market for Chipotle to open its first store in Asia. For instance, KFC has the top quick-service restaurant – in term of sales, in China, and it has more than a thousand outlets that serve more than 2 million Chinese each day. (Miller, 2004) Because of these successful cases, it can provide the resources and useful experiences and strategies for Chipotle to learn. Following the fast pace of young professionals, people prefer fast and quality service, and it is becoming a trend. Hence, Chipotle would be a great fit to its demand. Assumptions In 2000, more than 20 percent of quick-service operators in China were foreign, and Western-style fast food accounted for roughly one third of China’s total quick-service business volume. (Miller, 2004) Following the influences of globalization, lots of the western cultures are flowing into Beijing. Food is one of them, and it is becoming more and more popular.

...IV) Strategy formulation: A. Strategic alternatives: In a very usual manner, through the intense development and influence of globalization, many large multi national corporate want to expand their performance to new markets. Similarly, McDonald is also not an exception. As having been mentioned earlier, the new strategy that this well-known fast food corporation will choose in the upcoming period is about seeking and penetrating into Vietnamese market. This choice seems rational and appropriate to McDonald, because of its experiences in some countries with common features such as China, Thailand. However, one of the most critical issues for McDonald right now is where the company should locate their first stores in Vietnam. Obviously, for a big brand like McDonald, its target must be the developed areas in the country, where it can boost the demand of product highly and easily approach to customer’s need. Therefore, in this case, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City would be two best alternatives for McDonald. It is because of two main reasons associating with several similar characteristics of these two famous cities in Vietnam. First, both are big financial centers in Vietnam, so the living standard there is relatively high compared with that in other areas. With such high income, people also can afford for high quality products with fairly expensive price. Hence, company will have some advantages on pricing strategies. Second, fast food has been more and more popular......
