Introduction
McDonald's is the largest chain of fast food restaurants in the world. On 15 May 1940 the first McDonalds inaugurated in United States. It has now a total of more than 31,000 outlets worldwide. McDonald opened its doors in September 1998 at Lahore and now operating in seven major cities having network of 20 restaurants. Ronald McDonald is a clown character used as the primary mascot of the McDonald. The clown inhabits a fantasy world called McDonaldland. In recent years McDonaldland has been largely phased out, and Ronald is instead shown interacting with normal kids in their everyday lives. Many people work full-time making appearances in the Ronald McDonald costume, visiting children in hospitals. Since August 2003, McDonald has been officially recognized as the "Chief Happiness Officer" of the McDonald's Corporation.

Environmental analysis

External environmental analysis Political and legal

McDonald's has been involved in a number of lawsuits and other legal cases, most of which involved trademark disputes. The company has threatened many food businesses with legal action unless they drop the Mc or Mac from their trading name. McDonald's has defended itself in several cases involving workers' rights. In 2001 the company was fined 12,400 by British magistrates for illegally employing and over-working child labor in one of its London restaurants. In 1999 McDonalds was nominated by Business Ethics Magazine for its prestigious Business Ethics Award. However, the magazine decided not to grant them the award due to animal welfare issues and concerns.

Economical

The Wall Street Journal reported in the July 24, 2009 that sales for McDonalds fell below expectations. The decline is recent. According to the same article, April sales figures for McDonald's were 7 percent more in 2009 compared to 2.6 percent in June. Profits came in at $1.09 billion compared to $1.19 billion one year ago. Although that income number is still substantial but it is also a $10 billion drop in sales. McDonalds are the market leaders in fast food. The target markets are high. McDonalds have high incomes but low cost.

Social
As a prominent example of the rapid globalization of the American fast food industry, McDonald's is often the target of criticism for its menu, its expansion, and its business practices. In response to public pressure, McDonald's has sought to include more healthy choices in its menu and has introduced a new slogan to its recruitment posters: "Not bad for a McJob". McDonald's announced on May 22, 2008 that in the U.S. and Canada they will be introducing cooking oil for its french fries that contains no fats. McDonald's spends more on advertising than any other brand in the world, It runs more playgrounds than any other private entity in the world are the issues that McDonald's did not deal with in the report on Corporate Social Responsibility

Technological
McDonald keeps on focus on improving the pieces of equipments that have the highest environmental and greatest energy-saving impact. McDonalds has long-term relationship with all suppliers, built up over many years of shared growth and development. This enables the company to engage in discussion and dialogue to find solutions to common challenges. McDonalds also asked its partners that the appliances to be supplied should be equal or better in efficiency that they hold cost at maximum five percent extra capital cost of their standard equipment.

Environmental
We believe the choice of refrigerant must be evaluated on an applicationby-application basis, considering all relevant factors such as environmental protection, health and safety, energy efficiency, life cycle cost and local codes, By McDonalds

Issues against McDonalds are such as they annually produce over a million tons of packaging, used for just a few minutes before being discarded. What environmental effect does the production and disposal of all this? Are they responsible for litter on the streets, or is that the fault of the customer who drops it.

1) Internal environmental analysis


Resources (Capital)
McDonalds average franchise has yearly revenues of $2.2 million with an average margin of 6%-8%. McDonald's revenues by geographic segment in 2005

Europe ... $7,072 (35% of total company revenues) United States ... $6,955 (34%) Australia/Asia-Pacific ... $2,815 (14%) Latin America ... $1,327 (6%) Canada ... $948 (5%) Other ... $1,343 (6%)

Resources (people)
"McDonald's approach as McDonald's has thousands of restaurants in all over the world, and each one is essentially the same. If employees in one location find a way to make their processes more efficient that can save even a small amount of money, the corporate savings is significant when multiplied by all the sites worldwide.

That is the beauty of common processes as Blakeslee explains."When you consolidate everything, you begin to leverage resources".

Customer Segmentation and Market Analysis


CUSTOMER SEGMENTATION
There is no single way to segment a market. Different segmentation variables have to be tried, to find the variables that most accurately reflect the markets structure (who will/will not buy). The segmentation of McDonald outlets and its products is base on demographic segmentation, geographic segmentation, and psychographic.

Demographic Segmentation:
It is based on age, sex, family size, marital status,

Income, occupation, education, religion, race, Nationality. The marketers have done segmentation on demographic basis. Most of the deals offer in McDonald are according to normal family size of four or five, it is economically reasonable for upper middle class and also for upper class families. Besides these deals it also offers different meals fit for youngsters, students, for small parties and celebrations

Geographic segmentation
State or regional, population density (rural-

suburbanUrban), community size (under 5k, 5-10k, 1020k....per sq Km), climate, distance from a point. There are at least 31,000 McDonald can be found in 120 countries and territories around the world serving nearly 54 million customers each day. In Pakistan, on geographic bases marketers have targeted big cities. As in Lahore, Karachi, Islamabad, Pindi, Multan etc. The taste and quality is according to the people of region in which it is offered. They have more then one outlet in single city, like in Lahore. People of different areas in a city can get the same quality and price from different sales outlets.

Psychographic segmentation
Segmentation on the basis of the markets
Knowledge of, attitude to, or opinion of a product. The offerings are according to the lifestyle and social classes of people. Like in Lahore, there is trend of eating out, so it is best match for their style. There is wide band of their loyal customers.

MARKET ANALYSIS
Ask an experienced marketer what will determine the success or failure of a promotion and theyll often quote an age old industry rule: 70% audience, 20 % offer, 10% creativity. Or, to express it another way, by correctly analysing, and segmenting your customer database to ensure that the right offer reaches the right people, you have a 90% chance of success before you even start work on the creative. Since 2003 McDonald is practicing two types of strategies to maintain with rapid change comes in consumer preference as well as coping with changes in demographic and spending styles. In United States they expand their business introducing product variety and renovation in the already opened restaurant instead of opening new restaurant. Whereas in Asia they expand their business by exploring new markets. They offer the host countrys culture rather imposing their home countrys culture there, this is the main business strategy that makes it one of the most successful international fast food chains. Their market in Asia as well as in Pakistan is growing rapidly. In Pakistan they are opening their outlets in more cities, due to increase in demands.

Competitor Analysis
The emergence of food chain has pressured industry participants to continually add features and cut prices. Although McDonalds is a market leader in its food and beverages industry but it is now facing tough competition from the new entrants. It has to continuously update the business strategies to compete with young new comers.

Following are the major McDonalds hamburgers Competitors,

KFC
In the late 1960s, KFC was stabilized in the US and the owners turned their focus to international markets. By 1971, KFC had established 2,450 franchises and 600 company-owned restaurants in48 countries. PepsiCo acquired KFC in 1986 along with Pizza Hut and Taco Bell shortly after. Today KFC is severing about 8 million customers globally. They have more than 11,000 restaurants in more than 80 countries around the world. KFC is biggest competitor of McDonald in chain of fast food.

Pizza Hut
PepsiCo decided to spin off two restaurants into an independent, publicly held company called Tricon Global Restaurants, Inc. Then in 2002 Tricon acquired Long John Silver and A&W All-American Food Restaurants where they, shortly after, changed their Tricon name to Yum! Brands, Inc. Although as compared to McDonalds it has more number of franchised restaurants but revenues are low due to McDonalds big size.

YUM!brands
YUM!brands Includes KFC, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, and Long John Silvers American Food Restaurants. China market is dominated by YUM! brands. It serves as a biggest competitor while entering into the china market. While McDonalds run its business under one flag. YUM! Has splits its resources into variety of brands generating high revenue.

SWOT Analysis
SWOT analysis is the main ingredient of management as well as marketing functional analysis. It is process of overall evaluation of companys strengths (S), weakness (S) and prevailing opportunities (O) and threats (T) in the companys competitive environment. Now we will conduct McDonalds SWOT analysis in Pakistan.

STRENGTHS
By strength we mean internal potential of company. While evaluating strengths of McDonalds we will deal with companys micro environment. McDonalds micro environment is consisting of the following elements.

1234-

Image Full filling Customers Expectation Innovation Human Resource Satisfaction

IMAGE
MCDONALDS IS THE FASTEST GROWING FOOD CHAIN OF THE WORLD. IT IS A NUMBER BRAND OF THE HALF OF THE WORLD. IT HAS CREATED A POSITIVE STRONG IMAGE IN ITS CUSTOMER MINDS. CUSTOMERS ARE AMUSED BY THEIR CLEANINGS, HIGH SPEED SERVICE DELIVERY AND CUSTOMER FRIENDLY ATTITUDE.

FULL FILLING CUSTOMERS EXPECTATION


Another greatest strength of McDonalds is its product value. To fulfill customers expectation when they walk in their franchise becomes their strongest marketing element in Pakistan.

INNOVATION
McDonalds keeps on bringing innovation with quality in its products. People get used to of experiencing new taste and variety

HUMAN RESOURCE SATISFACTION


They give importance to the employees satisfaction. They believe that to build strong employee-customer relationship they have to keep their employee satisfied and happy with different incentives other than pay roll.

WEAKNESS

By weakness we mean prevailing internal system weakness of the company and negative factors in environment that affect badly the companys core business. a. Over exposure b. Customer trends c. External Environment

OVER EXPOSURE
People of Pakistan always want something new or that is different from others. But in McDonalds scenario, you can find its outlets everywhere in in big cities of Pakistan. This over exposure may become boring for certain class of people in Pakistan. This over exposure induce customer to move on to something new which is not as crowdie as McDonalds. McDonalds has lost the element of uniqueness by opening so much franchise.

CUSTOMER TRENDS
Customer trends changes rapidly. when customer sees no further advancement or innovation in companys product they move on to some other brand.

EXTERNAL ENVIRONMENT
Threats and opportunities prevail in any companys external environment. Following diagram shows that companys external environment

Technology; technology works as a benchmark for organization success. Politics: politics plays vital role in effecting organization repute. Law: every organization need to work under state regulation, no one can work beyond the legal boundaries of business limited by state legal authority

THREATS
With so much franchise dealers a threat of bond collapse exist. Another threat would be lack of growth opportunities available. As the market is very saturated so it is hard to grow more with the same product line. Another concern can be a treat which is of health conscious people who thinks McDonalds products make them fatty.

OPPORTUNITIES:
There are a lot of unexplored market niche available in Pakistan. All they need to do proper marketing of their product. Earlier they used kids as their brand ambassadors. They should expand their target market by targeting health conscious adults, men and women.

Marketing objectives
Some of the marketing objectives are as follows: To make reasonable profit.

McDonalds main objective is to provide quality-oriented food and high customer satisfaction. To make at least 20% profit every year and keep on improving the sales and percentage of profit in preceding0 years. McDonalds has a wide distribution network retailer and Franchise system through out many countries.

General Marketing Strategy

Geographic factor:

Psychological factor:

MARKETING STRATEGY

The marketing mix is the combination of price, product, promotion and place that successfully markets a product to focus of McDonalds.

1. Product:
Price must match the customers' idea of what the product is worth. The important thing to remember when offering menu items to potential customers is that there is a huge amount of choice available to those potential customers with regard to how and where they spend their money. Therefore McDonalds places considerable emphasis on developing a menu which customers want.

McDonalds has introduced new products and phased out old ones over time, and will continue to do so. Care is taken not to adversely affect the sales of an existing option by introducing a new option which will cannibalize its sales. Some of McDonalds options are growing in popularity while arguably the Big Mac is at the maturity stage.

2. Price:
Customers draw their own mental picture of what a product is worth. A product is more than a physical item; it also has psychological connotations for the customer. The danger of using low price as a marketing tool is that the customer may feel that a low price is indicative of compromised quality. This means also the profit margin has been reduced without increasing the sales.But the Price of McDonalds is high enough that a person feels free to purchase the quality by paying extra as goodwill.

3. Promotions:

The promotions aspect of the marketing mix covers all types of marketing communications. One of the methods employed by McDonalds is advertising accompanied by the sales promotion and also by delivering the brochures to the consumers who came for purchase.

PROMOTIONAL OBJECTIVES

To use push strategy. To enhance the brand name and proceeds sales. To develop a positive image of company. To design a promotional campaign in such effective manner so that consumer can switch over to use our brand from their present brand.

PROMOTIONAL STRATEGY:
Promotional Device: Magazines: Out Door Media: Websites. The Dawn, The News & Sunday Magazines. Scotch print, point of purchase and banners for

introductory phase, Bill boards etc.

PROMOTIONAL INCENTIVES:
Consumer Distributor Deals of minimum costs More sales commission will be given to franchise.

DOOR-TO-DOOR SELLING:
It is compulsory for all the franchises of McDonalds that they must give the free home delivery of their product with minimum time. Thats Why McDonald and his some competitors have now large competition among services along with the primary objective of fast food selling.

Product Strategy
ANALYZING CURRENT BUSINESS PRODUCT PORTFOLIO

BCG MATRIX:
Growth share matrix which is a planning method used for portfolio and companys strategic business evaluation. Strategic business units are classified as stars, cash cows, question marks or dogs. McDonalds as a single business unit was a star that has high growth rate along with high market share, but now it has turned into cash cows. Cash cows is that strategic business unit in which has low growth rate and but it is enjoying high business share or product. McDonalds Zinger Burger is an established fast food unit that now needs less investment to garb its market share as compared to other emerging business units.

Target Market(s):
McDonald's target market is every segment of the demography. The segments of the demography are; family life-cycles, gender, age, Nationality, Income, Generation, Race etc. McDonald's has based its segmentation on demographic variables (this is why demographic forces are so important to monitor). Most of the segments McDonald's targets are broken-down into age and lifestyle stage; this is probably because they are easily identifiable and consumer needs and wants vary closely with demographic variables. McDonald's primary target markets are seniors, adults and teenagers, but the most heavily targeted segment is children. Some of the sub-groups they market to are: Children Parents of Small Children Teens Business People (Free WiFi in some restaurants)

Estimated annual Sales: Estimated profitability: Market Growth Rate:


McDonald's Corporation reported a 23% increase in profit for the fourth quarter, on strong global comparable sales growth driven by higher demand.

McDonald's net income for the quarter was $1.22 billion, up 23% from $0.99 billion in the same quarter last year.

COMPETITION
Although McDonald's is the clear leader of the fast food industry in terms of revenues generated and restaurants established, it faces competition from other fast food chains, which are introducing new products themselves. Major direct competitors in the (hamburger-based) fast food industry include: Burger King Holdings is the second largest hamburger fast food chain. Although more of Burger Kings restaurants are franchised than McDonalds restaurants, Burger King Franchise revenues trail behind that of its competitor, mainly due to the McDonalds size advantage. Wendy's is the third largest hamburger fast food chain. It has a lower operating margin that McDonalds, so it is likely to be more negatively impacted during a recession. Yum! Brands run Kentucky Fried Chicken, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Long John Silvers, and A&W All-American Food Restaurants. Currently, Yum! Brands are dominating the China market, posing a challenge to McDonald's attempts

to enter the market. While McDonalds Corporation focuses on its flagship brand, Yum! splits its resources among a wide variety of restaurants.

Geographical Scope
With over 32,000 locations in over 110 countries, McDonalds (NYSE: MCD) is the world's largest fast food restaurant chain. McDonald's operates its own restaurants and franchises its brand to local businesspeople (about 70% of the world's McDonald's restaurants are franchised. The company experienced a dramatic turnaround in 2003, driven by a two-pronged strategy. In the U.S., McDonald's focused on increasing sales at existing locations by renovating stores, expanding menu options and extending store hours. Internationally, McDonald's expanded aggressively, opting to franchise rather than operate its new locations, providing new income with little overhead. Both strategies have paid dividends - despite its size, sales have grown by a third since 2003. Domestically, McDonald's continues to perform well despite a pullback in consumer spending and is even benefiting as consumers trade down from more expensive eating options. At the same time, international operations are driving profit growth. A growing global middle class, particularly in emerging markets like China, India, and Latin America, represents a massive opportunity for McDonald's. McDonald's aggressive efforts to expand its global presence - most notably at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics - have produced strong comparable sales and profit growth.

In fact, as noted on www.mcdonalds.com, McDonald's is the leading global foodservice retailer, with more than 30,000 local restaurants serving nearly 46 million people each day in 121 different countries. Approximately 80 percent of all McDonald's restaurants worldwide are owned and operated by independent franchisers.
