PEPSI

Pepsi (stylized in lowercase as pepsi, formerly stylized in uppercase as PEPSI) is a carbonated soft drink that is produced and manufactured by PepsiCo. Created and developed in 1898 and introduced as "Brad's Drink", it was later renamed as Pepsi-Cola on June 16, 1903, then to Pepsi in 1961.
Pepsi was first introduced as "Brad's Drink" in New Bern, North Carolina, United States, in 1898 by Caleb Bradham, who made it at his home where the drink was sold. It was later labeled Pepsi Cola, named after the digestive enzyme pepsin and kola nuts used in the recipe.[2] Bradham sought to create a fountain drink that was delicious and would aid in digestion and boost energy.[3]
In 1903, Bradham moved the bottling of Pepsi-Cola from his drugstore to a rented warehouse. That year, Bradham sold 7,968 gallons of syrup. The next year, Pepsi was sold in six-ounce bottles, and sales increased to 19,848 gallons. In 1909, automobile race pioneer Barney Oldfield was the first celebrity to endorse Pepsi-Cola, describing it as "A bully drink...refreshing, invigorating, a fine bracer before a race." The advertising theme "Delicious and Healthful" was then used over the next two decades.[4] In 1926, Pepsi received its first logo redesign since the original design of 1905. In 1929, the logo was changed again.
In 1931, at the depth of the Great Depression, the Pepsi-Cola Company entered bankruptcy – in large part due to financial losses incurred by speculating on wildly fluctuating sugar prices as a result of World War I. Assets were sold and Roy C. Megargel bought the Pepsi trademark.[2] Megargel was unsuccessful, and soon Pepsi's assets were purchased by Charles Guth, the President of Loft Inc. Loft was a candy manufacturer with retail stores that contained soda fountains. He sought to replace Coca-Cola at his stores' fountains after Coke refused to give him a discount on syrup.…...

...When it comes to the environmental factors, Pepsi must adjust its marketing strategy to fit the audience rather than trying to fit the audience to its strategy. For example, current demographics in the United States reflects an aging population as the nation’s “Baby Boomers” are now reaching retirement age with most of them having “grown up” with Pepsi and Coca-Cola. 12.5% of the U.S. population is over the age of 65, compared to China, where only 7.7% of the population is over age 65 (NationMaster, 2009). According to Ackerman (2008), Pepsi plans to invest $1.0 billion into the Chinese markets, which is significant considering that currently the world’s economy is relatively poor. The author believes that the plan to invest in the Chinese market is optimistic and that the company faces the challenge of slow growth in China, a decline in U.S. sales and “the impact of the stronger dollar on international sales” (Ackerman, 2008, para. 2). How wise is the decision to invest in a country during a period of world economic decline? Pepsi made similar ventures in the Eastern European and Russian regions that proved to be profitable. According to Jonathan Feeney, a Wachovia Capital Markets analyst, Pepsi’s strategy is to build “platforms ahead of demand to some extent and continuing to support platforms even during times of economic weakness” (Ackerman, 2008, para. 5). Success is not guaranteed in the Chinese market, but if Pepsi has been able to achieve positive demand......

...Virtual Tutorial Task 1 – Pepsi – Introduction. This document will analyse the external marketing environment for Pepsi. It will specifically consider the following factors; Socio-cultural, Technological, Economic, Political/Legal and Ecological, and how each of these may influence the firm now and in the near future. Once analysed, this document will then categorize them according to whether they represent an opportunity or threat to the firm and give recommendations on how the firm could convert threats to opportunities and also how to capitalise on current opportunity. The soft drinks market is a market with an estimated worth of £13,376million, a figure up 4.3% since 2006. The market volume is currently at 14,240million litres, up 0.5% since 2006 (sourced – Source: The BSDA Soft Drinks Report 2010, British Soft Drinks Association, compiled by Zenith International/Key Note - http://www.keynote.co.uk/market-intelligence/view/product/10396/soft-drinks--carbonated-%26-concentrated?medium=html), a figure that suggests demand for soft-drinks is ever increasing. However, following a flurry of negative publicity for sugary drinks, one major factor for the market and Pepsi themselves to consider is the health implications. With sugary drinks being linked as a “root cause” for obesity, importantly, recent legislation has been introduced, for example, limiting advertising to children, a huge lucrative market segment that Pepsi and other companies in the market have......

...Jacqueline Franklin- Distribution Recommendations. Pepsi-Cola had a number of successes and serious competition over the years. Despite the challenges in the past, Pepsi-Cola was able to find a market in the United Kingdom (UK). Now that the UK market is changing towards more health conscious consumers, diet products seems to be the next phase of the market and growing fast, Peter Kendall the regional vice president of northern Europe of Pepsi-Cola International, is faced with the possibility that Pepsi’s rival Coca-Cola would launched its new product, diet Coke in the UK market and gain upper market shares. It is quite possible that if Peter Kendall doesn’t have a strategic plan on how to get Pepsi out to the consumers, the company could lose grounds to Coca-Cola. With limited resources and in an unfamiliar territory, I would recommend as a long term solid plan that Peter Kendall find beverage companies in UK who are now successful in distribution of their product and form alliance with them to distribute Pepsi Challenge to the targeted market before Coca-Cola introduced Diet Coke in the UK. A positive for Pepsi would be to partner with the “multiples” since the chain accounts for 53% of grocery volume, and because of the large chain, they can dictate shelf pace which is forcing Cadbury-Schweppes out of the grocery competition. Mr. Kendall should adopt the US strategy Pepsi used and use franchise systems to expand distribution with minimal company investment. He should......

...Research Proposal Pepsi Determine the current brand loyalty of Generation Y to the Pepsi-Cola brand. Situational Analysis SWOT Analysis PepsiCo Strengths * Branding - One of PepsiCo’s top brands is of course Pepsi, one of the most recognized brands of the world, ranked according to Interbrand. As of 2008 it ranked 26th amongst top 100 global brands. Pepsi generates more than $15,000 million of annual sales. The strength of the Pepsi brand is evident in Pepsi’s presence in over 200 countries. The company has the largest market share in the US beverage at 39. Such brand dominance insures loyalty and repetitive sales which contributes to over $15 million in annual sales for the company * Distribution - The company delivers its products directly from manufacturing plants and warehouses to customer warehouses and retail stores. This is part of a three pronged approach which also includes employees making direct store deliveries of snacks and beverages and the use of third party distribution services. Weaknesses * * Overdependence on US Markets - Despite its international presence, 52% of its revenues originate in the US. This concentration does leave PepsiCo somewhat vulnerable to the impact of changing economic conditions, and labor strikes. Large US customers could exploit PepsiCo’s lack of bargaining power and negatively impact its revenues. * Low Productivity - In 2008 PepsiCo had approximately 198,000 employees. Its......

...« Previous Post   -   Next Post » Coke vs. Pepsi The Dilemma: You’re at a restaurant. You’ve specifically asked for a Coke when you get handed a Pepsi, or vice versa. You tell the waiter what you requested, and he gives you the “What’s the difference?” shrug. Perhaps it’s time you laid it on him. People You Can Impress: “Impressed” probably doesn’t accurately reflect the aforementioned waiter’s likely response. The Quick Trick: If you drink them side by side, Pepsi is the sweeter of the two (which is why people tend to prefer Pepsi in the Pepsi Challenge). The Explanation:  Although the fantastic ad campaigns run by both companies would have you think otherwise, the soft drinks’ similarities are pretty striking. For starters, Pepsi and Coke were both the brainchildren of Southern pharmacists. Coca-Cola was invented by Atlantan Dr. John Pemberton in 1886. And yes, there was originally a concentration of cocaine in the soda, but it was reduced to a tiny amount (1/400th of a grain per ounce) by 1902 and removed altogether by 1930. Th e Coca-Cola Company changed hands a few times, and after Prohibition Coca-Cola was sold to the Woodruff family for $25 million. Pepsi, on the other hand, was born a few years after Coke. In 1893, pharmacist Caleb Bradham began experimenting withvarious drink mixtures in New Bern, N.C. His 1898 concoction, then known by the creative name “Brad’s Drink,” became an overnight success, and “Doc” Bradham began selling his “Exhilarating,......
