The Café

...The Café David sat at a small table in the corner, as he silently sipped his espresso. It was a light brown in color, almost resembling the wet earth of the night outside. The rain showered unremittingly upon the roof of the coffee shop. Despite the frequent noise of thunder that furiously sliced through the tranquil night, David sat oblivious to his surroundings. He held a small black notebook that appeared bizarrely tiny for his vast hands. He stood tall, of moderate build, and wore a thick, highly numbered, pair of glasses. His strange baby-face contrasted with his receding hairline, making it impossible to guess his age. He was well dressed in a black suit and tie, trousers, and a fine pair of polished black shoes. He was never someone who would stand out in a crowd. Even from far, one could notice that he was comfortable in his isolation, as he repetitively kept scribbling some notes into his tiny little book. He seemed to be always alone, but he was never lonely. A pretty young waitress came by, offering a refill for his coffee. Her nametag read Andrea. He nodded unsmilingly at her and got back to his book. The shop had large windows facing towards the East. The kitchen and the serving counter of the shop lined up against the opposite wall. As the tiny droplets of rain silently fell upon the thin glass of the large windows, the white lights of the café powerfully illuminated the entire room, large yet contrarily quaint. The kitchen had closed some time back...

...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......
