A SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) analysis is a strategic planning tool that can help a business to boost profits and productivity by understanding its competencies (strengths and weaknesses) as well as the competition.

The 2 for 20$ promotion is good for couples or any one that is on a budget. They have great choices of food to choose from on that special. Most of the time whenever my boyfriend and I would want to eat out, we will choose Ruby Tuesday. We will choose them because of that special. We can both spend $20 and get a good meal. The next strength that Ruby Tuesday has is their great customer service skills. Whenever I go to that restaurant to eat, I always feel comfortable about going their. They are very nice and the workers will hold conversations with you. One time there was a problem with my food. I asked them if I don’t like what I am ordering can I get something else. The manager was nice enough to tell me yes and that made me feel really great about them. The last strength that they have is great food.

Tuesday with Morrie

...life challenges. As Morrie happens to meet with Mitch, his past student and friend, they plan to start meeting on Tuesdays and Mitch is to go to Morrie’s home. They get into the discussions for fourteen Tuesdays where they discuss life issues such family, death, marriage, love, money among others. Morrie dies and he is buried on a Tuesday. The discussions of each Tuesday are analyzed to reveal the deontology and utilitarianism of the two and their humanistic and social significances. Tuesdays with Morrie The book Tuesdays with Morrie: an old man, young man, and life’s greatest lesson was written by Mitch Albom in 1997. It is a non-fiction book talking about Mitch’s experience with an old man who was his college sociology professor, Morrie Schwartz. The book is a chronicle that talks about the author’s interaction with the professor as the professor was about to die. The author gives the reason as to why he wrote the book saying that in every person’s life there is a teacher. A person who tells one about the challenges of life and has solutions to the problems. Mitch had earlier on interacted with Morrie but when he graduated from the college they had to leave each with the writer promising to keep in touch something he failed to do (Albom, 2007). The Tuesdays with Morrie talks about the ideas about life they talked about in each of the Tuesdays they met. The professor had gone to hospital and doctor after examining him found out that he was suffering from a...

Ruby Tuesday

...Welcome to Ruby Tuesday 1 Welcome to Ruby Tuesday BUS 100 Dr. Etta Steed Welcome to Ruby Tuesday 2 Ruby Tuesday is a casual dining restaurant that I often visit with my family. On most occasions I am overwhelmed with the menu items. I tend to take long at ordering my food due to indecisiveness. The things that I noticed to be Ruby Tuesday’s strengths are the quality of customer service they offer and the salad bar option. Although the restaurant is one of my favorite I think that the lighting could be better and the pricing on the food can be lower. Overall Ruby Tuesday is a great restaurant as they are able to stand out by including the salad bar in casual dining. As most restaurants do Ruby Tuesday is no different when it comes to making the menu editable. I love to try different foods when I go out with my family and it tends to be harder when all menu items look good. Like most restaurants Ruby Tuesday has pictures on the menu and they also have signature daily dishes. Implementing daily food items makes the restaurant meet fine dining expectations to be in the market of competition with restaurants like Arizona’s. Arizona’s is a very high end restaurant that have chefs that decide on daily menu items. With Ruby Tuesday picking up this as an option it is giving fine dining restaurants some competition because they have lower prices. The salad bar offered by Ruby Tuesday is an amazing experience as most restaurants serve salad with meals but you are......

Black Tuesday

...BLACK TUESDAY IN THE BAHAMAS(APRIL 27, 1965) (Events inside and outside of The House of Assembly and aftermath of Black Tuesday are excerpts from "The Quiet Revolution" by Dame Dr. Doris Johnson.) Possibly the greatest event in the movement towards Bahamian Independence was Black Tuesday. This event culminated in 1967 but started with the 1962 General Elections. The 1962 General Elections was the first elections where all Bahamians including women, were allowed vote: universal adult suffrage. Surprisingly, the United Bahamian Party won the elections over the PLP. The UBP had 21 seats and the PLP had 8. Roland Symonette became the country's first Premier. Historians have hypothesized as to why the PLP lost the elections despite overwhelming support from the majority of Bahamians. Firstly, the PLP complained of UBP job threats. Workers complained that they were threaten with being fired if they voted for the PLP. Also, the UBP campaigned on the grounds that they had done a good job of improving the Bahamian economy; and that change now would frighten the American tourists and investors who were just now coming back from the 1958 General Strike. The UBP suggested that the PLP were not knowledgeable enough to run the country and if the PLP were to gain control of the government, the economy would be ruined. Additionally, the PLP complained that the UBP had arranged the constituency boundaries in such a way as to give themselves an unfair advantage. This "fixing" of the......

Ruby Tuesday

...Ruby Tuesday’s is a bar and grill style of a restaurant that was founded in 1972, by a 22 year old man named Sandy Beall, in Knoxville, TN (Our history). The concept of the first location that was opened in Knoxville had a strategy to be known as a comfortable and casual environment where guests could get quality food that tastes good (Our History). Over the past years different marketing strategies have come and gone for the business. Some strategies have worked in means of increasing sales and others didn’t work at all. In order to maximize profit and continue to bring in more revenue to the business a company has to know its place in the market. Conducting an analysis that involves the company knowing its strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats will assist a company with important information that is needed to boost sales and gain a better presence in the market. Target Market Before conducting a SWOT Analysis, Ruby Tuesday would have to identify their Target Market. This is critical mainly because without this being known, they wouldn’t know what types of people are their current customers and they won’t know how to promote their business to bring in future customers. When it comes to their menu Ruby Tuesday has always tried to promote healthy recipes which means that their target market seems to aim for individuals 35 and up. Their current menu has a couple of dishes on there now that have the caption by them “Taste of the Islands”, which could be......

Tuesdays with Morrie

...tenderness, but it will not be the same as actually having tenderness. Another thought I had was that money makes the world go round, so why is it not the most important thing? I think it is the most important thing for the economy, and the society we live in today, but at the same time it doesn’t have to be the most important thing for us as individuals. As a society we have a hard time deciding what we need, and what we want. I am guilty of this myself because I think I need a lot of things that I really can go on without. There are other things in life than money. It seems like everyone is always thinking about when they can work, how much they can work, what their salary will be, but that is not the only thing in life. Since reading Tuesdays With Morrie I have noticed how much people really miss out on in life when they are too busy devoting themselves to that paycheck. I used to think that money will always get you everything you desire, but now I have noticed that all it really does is cover up the things you can never get with money. We use material things to hide that fact that our money will never get us some of the best things in life....

Tuesday with Morrie

...Tuesday with Morrie Leisure is finding free time to do ones own personally activity that brings happiness to oneself through the activity. Free time, attitude and activity is what defines leisure, in the movie Tuesday with Morrie, leisure is the defining cause of happiness for the main character, Mitch. In today’s society, we are so busy with our daily lives that we forget to have some time to ourselves. And it clearly depicts that in the movie, with Mitch’s busy lifestyle of being a reporter, he loses focus with everything else. Family, love, and life are the main focus of leisure of Morrie and he tries instilling it on Mitch, which he slowly learns as his life fades away. From this movie I learned that leisure is not just finding free time for oneself, but it is a life away from work. Compensation, needs that are satisfied that cannot be satisfied at work, is what the main character needed and wanted. I learned that leisure time from work is crucial to maintain a healthy relationship with co-workers, family members, loved ones, etc. That time away from work can mean the difference in marriage and divorce. An example from the movie would be when Mitch took Morrie’s advice and took off work and spend more leisure time with Janine and eventually proposing to her. It shows that leisure time provides a clear mind to think about future goals and lifestyles. The one big fact about leisure that I learned and that the movie showed is that leisure goes from physical to more......

Black Tuesday

...BLACK TUESDAY “Black Tuesday” began in The Bahamas April 27th 1965.Black Tuesday took place not only inside but outside The House Of Assembly. According to Source B Black Tuesday was possibly one of the greatest events in the movement of Bahamian independence. The PLP (Progressive Liberal Party) was formed November 23rd 1953.The PLP consisted of Sir Lynden Pindling, the late Sir Milo Butler, Mr. Cyril Stevenson, Mr. Sammie Issacs, the late Clarence A. Bain, and the late Sir Randol Fawkes. The formation of the PLP was a first for The Bahamas because it introduced party politics. At this time the majority group in the House was the Bay Street Boys, who later formed the UBP (United Bahamian Party). As mentioned by Source B around the time October 1956 at that time, only a few men, those who owned land, could vote. In addition, a man could vote in as many placed as he owned land, every company that owned land could vote, no woman could vote, and 21 years was the qualifying age. The PLP sought to change this desperate state of affairs and the UBP fought them every inch of the way. Between 1959 and1961, the Women’s Suffrage Movement took up the cause of votes for women and in July 1961, the act of voting for women became law. This was a huge step toward majority rule. The 1962 general election was the first election were all Bahamians including women were allowed to vote. Surprisingly though the UBP won the election over the PLP. This was because workers were threatened to...

Tuesdays with Morrie

... In a patient with early onset ALS, one would see progressive upper and lower muscle weakness of motor neurons. Most commonly this is seen in hands, arms, feet and legs. Some people may experience twitching, cramping. Eventually, the patient will have impaired use of arms and legs. In the later stages, one has shortness of breath, difficulty swallowing and thick speech. For example, In Tuesdays with Morrie, the main character Morrie suffering from ALS began falling, tripping, and had to begin using assistive devices such as a cane, then a walker, and eventually was wheelchair bound. Morrie eventually needed a respirator at night by nasal cannula. Very close to the time he passed, Morrie was unable to speak and swallow (“Symptoms”). A diagnosis for early signs and symptoms of ALS in Morrie’s case would be; walking impairment related to insufficient muscle strength as evidence by tripping, falling, and use of assistive devices (Ackley 2010 p. 894). This diagnosis applies because in almost every case, all patients suffer from motor weakness. This pertains to Morrie as seen on page 8 of Tuesdays with Morrie when Mitch narrates, “he keeps tripping, so he purchased a cane. That was the end of his walking free” (Albom 1997 p. 8). Also, on page 6, Mitch mentions that Morrie has trouble walking, he often would stumble, and even feel down a flight of stairs. This diagnosis for early onset ALS is extremely common in those suffering from this disease. A later stage diagnosis for Morrie...

Ruby Tuesday Ethical Issues

...STRAYER UNIVERSITY Ruby Tuesday Ethical Issues Multiple lawsuits [Type the author name] 6/8/2016   Ruby Tuesday is a successful national restaurant chain specializing in “American” type cuisine, enjoyed by many on a daily basis. While they are able to thrive in a very tough industry, they have been in the news for some possible ethic conduct violations, one regarding employee wages and another regarding gender bias hiring. In 2012 a law suit was filed against Ruby Tuesday Inc. (RTI), by what the industry refers to as “front of house” employees, which covers waiters/waitresses/food runners and bartenders. These type of employees are paid on a different type pay scale, as a good part of their wages are made from tips from the customers they serve. Since these “tipped” employees focus on customer service, the las states they are only allowed to spend no more than 20% of their work day performing “side work”. (ROC n.d.) The suit claims that RTI would have employees punch out and continue to work or perform tasks before they punched into work. The suit was settled out of court, with RTI paying about 3 million dollars to workers for lost wages. In another suit, Ruby Tuesday, Inc has been accused of discriminatory hiring against men. The company placed an ad in a Utah newspaper looking for seasonal bartenders and servers, actually indicating a preference for women (Phillip 2015). The company was providing housing for the employees and......

Years later though Morrie is diagnosed with a debilitating disease (ALS) that lands him on national T.V. where Mitch gains his motivation to reconnect with him before time is up. During their final Tuesdays together Mitch faces a lot of symbols that relates to his and Morrie’s life and their relationship together. Just a few symbols described during their time together were Morrie’s bed, Morrie’s wish of becoming a Gazelle, and the wave story Morrie told Mitch was a symbol in itself. “When you’re in bed, you’re dead” (131, Mitch Albom). This was one of Morrie’s first and most meaningful aphorism in the book but the symbol was the Morrie’s bed itself. The bed represents the surrendering of his body too the disease in the book. Morrie wakes up every morning and immediately gets out of bed and moves to another room in the house, mostly he goes to his study where all his books are. When you are in bed your not doing anything, your not being productive with your day. When your laying in bed 24/7 with nothing better to do but stair at the ceiling and roll over every once in a while, it turns into your prison or even worse, your grave. If Morrie was to be reincarnated, what would he be? “If I had a choice, a...
