BUSI 520

Making Fast Food Healthy: A Growing Market The Subway chain is the most well-known of the quick service restaurant (QSR) sub industry. All five of Subway’s similar competitors combined do not come close to the 27,021 locations that Subway currently owns in the United States; Quiznos has 5,200 locations (Quiznos, 2015), Firehouse Subs owns 850 locations (Firehouse Subs, 2015), Jimmy Johns has approximately 2,000 locations (Jimmy John's, 2015), Jersey Mike’s has 1,300 locations (Jersey Mike's, 2015), and Charley's Grilled Subs has over 500 locations (Charley's, 2015). The Subway chain is indisputably the world’s largest submarine sandwich chain with over 43,000 locations around the world (SUBWAY, 2015) and a brand value of $6.6 billion (Forbes, 2014). In this paper we will discuss how the Subway brand came to be so successful, what marketing strategies were used properly in the process, and conclude with what marketing strategies should continue to be implemented and what marketing strategies should be improved in order for Subway to maintain its success in the QSR industry.
Background Information
The “How” In 1965, 17 year old Fred DeLuca needed a way to fund his tuition to become a medical doctor. With a $1,000 loan from soon-to-be business partner Dr. Peter Buck, Fred founded Pete’s Super Submarines, known today as Subway Restaurants. The first store was opened in Bridgeport, Connecticut in August, 1965 with the future goal of opening 32 stores in 10 years (SUBWAY, 2015). Their biggest concern at the time was “how.” In eight years the subway chain was able to grow from 16 stores to 200 stores and they did this by franchising. Franchising for Subway began in 1974. Fred recalls, “We didn’t have any big thought process except that, OK, franchising will help us get to our goal of 32 stores…...

...Shannon Motyl Individual Portion of Group Project American Intercontinental University An article on the FBI website stated that in order to have the discussion about police ethnics, the word integrity must be defined. Integrity is the sum of virtues required to bring about the general goals of protections and service to the public. The author, Rich Martin stated that the major cause of police corruption is mediocrity. It is the leadership’s responsibility to maintain a high level of conduct within a department to prevent the mediocre. He states that some reasons for the corruption is the work that police do. It is measured in results. Therefore, the officers will find ways to complete these tasks and some choose to cut corners or violate the law and not even consider it being unethical. (Martin, 2011) A report made by the National Police Misconduct reported in their Semi-Annual that there were 2, 854 law enforcement officers alleged to have engaged in misconduct. It also stated that there were 207 law enforcement leaders’ police chiefs or sheriffs that were cited in those reports. It included how many civilians that were involved in the law enforcement officer misconduct. It concluded that there were 2, 568 victims of reported police misconduct.

...Marketing Plan: Shandong Restaurant near Boston University Chinese food now holds a popular place among the entire population of the world. You can find a Chinese restaurant in every major city, especially in the United States and in many smaller areas of the world as well. Chinese food, when authentic is probably the healthiest food in the world. Some restaurants, especially American Chinese cuisine, which are not authentic, prepare their menu with highly saturated fats or with meats that contain unhealthy amounts of animal fat. These Chinese restaurants are not recommended and they are both neither authentic nor healthy. Good Chinese food however, is prepared and cooked with poly-unsaturated oils. Authentic Chinese food does not require the use of milk-fat ingredients such as cream, butter or cheese. Meat is used, but not in abundance, which makes it easy for those who love authentic Chinese food to avoid high levels of animal fat. Many believe that authentic Chinese food is really the ideal diet. There are several Chinese restaurants around Boston University, but they are not traditional Chinese food. They are all assimilated by the western diet culture. But our Shandong restaurant is a traditional Chinese restaurant and it located around Boston University. W.I.I. (What it is…) The Shandong restaurant is a partnership based venture aimed at promoting a healthy and traditional Chinese Shandong style eatery. The aim of this restaurant is to provide a health......

The iPhone is a technologically innovative product which uses both hedonic and utilitarian product attributes to “trigger consumer frenzy in the launch period complete with long lines outside Apple stores the night prior to the launch date” (Arruda-Filho, Cabusas, & Dholakia, 2010, para.4). Describe and discuss the demographic trends associated with your product/service. In 2010, Nielsen’s quarter 1 2010 data “showed 23% of all mobile consumers have a smartphone” (Kellogg, 2010, para.1). According to Nielsen, both Android and iPhone users are mostly male, with Android users being slightly younger than iPhone users. However, those users who are in a lower income bracket and less educated are more likely to choose an Android device over an iPhone. (Kellogg, 2010) Drew DeSilver (2013) summarized a recent Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project report on smartphone ownership., which backed up Nielsen’s survey. According to this report, “25% of all U.S. cellphone owners, and 43% of smartphone owners, own an iPhone, a few percentage points behind Android” (DeSilver, 2013, para.2).

...Group Project Questions 1. If I were Dr. Mitchell I would recommend that the caller contact their attorney before they say anything to anyone else. The risks of continuing to work with the company could be that they get caught and the caller gets blamed as well, if anything the caller could be charged with conspiracy or aiding and abetting. The state board of accountancy could be a source of advice, but I would still recommend contacting an attorney before exercising that option. 2. The caller doesn’t have a responsibility to report this to the bank directly. Once again I feel that the caller needs to consult with their attorney before any actions. After that I feel that it is not the duty of the caller to speak with the bank, it would be the duty of the entity that is hired to investigate the fraud to consult with the bank. 3. The other parties that should be notified in addition to the bank once investigation has started could be the authorities. The accounts payable clerk wouldn’t be notified because although they informed the caller about specific transactions they still may let other people in the company know about the investigation. Other parties could be judges if search warrants and subpoenas are necessary. The caller’s attorney should be the first party to be notified so the caller knows what they should do with their current situation as to not incriminate themselves. Concerns that I would have about notifying the external auditors would be that......

Mavericks Goods Group Project

...Proposed ERP Architecture The type of ERP Architecture for the ERP system proposed that would be utilized would be a logical architecture. There is much confusion between getting the basic information needed from the client to the owners and general managers of Mavericks Goods & Fresh Produce that a ‘simple’ logical architecture is best. This logical architecture relays data from the hardware, to an all in one database, to the core business logic (security/access), to the functional business applications needed (this includes accounting, supply chain, distribution, finance, HRM, marketing and production) and to the client user interface applications and back again. Those who utilize this ERP but work on a face-to-face basis with the customers will never see some of the tiers of the ERP architecture, but the store owners and managers will be able to relay information back and forth from one store to the next. The end goal of this ERP system will be to track hours worked by employees and implement payroll, check inventory at any of the stores at any given time in order to sell off overstocked inventory or order more, gather statistics on which items are selling best to determine whether a price increase or decrease will need to be done, and overall reducing the amount of physical time spent in each store wasted on attempting to input data into an old Microsoft Excel system. Each store will be able to communicate fluidly but the friendly ‘click of a button’ functions......
