Reflection Analysis
Surprised by how easy it is for new firms to enter the market and how large firms like McDonald s create brand awareness through large marketing campaigns .(MATT) The fast food industry is recession proof. There will always be a need for a quick convenient dinner. There may be subsets in both the US and international markets but the cheeseburger will always be king (Elizabeth) Methods and ways in which the different companies differentiate their product vary across the board (Andrew) Surprised by how US companies dominates the global fast food industry. Why they have not yet successful in the Chinese market compared to other markets. Recession and Fast food industry, how massive the industry, US impact in other cultures, industry s impact in US economy (GDP)
