...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......

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 -, 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.

...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......

The Company's brands include Quaker Oats, Tropicana, Gatorade, Lay's, Pepsi, Walkers, Gamesa and Sabritas. Pepsico Inc. is registered on NYSE using the ticker symbol of ‘PEP’. Using the available data from 1978 till now, the PEP ticker symbol has seen the stock price increase of approximate 4400% , which is comparable to its closest competitor Coca-Cola’s (Ticker : KO) growth of 4500% in the same time period. Pepsico’s current Market Cap is approximately 98.83B with a P/E ratio of 15.90. A high P/E ratio suggests investor's confidence in the future growth prospects of the company and Pepsico has the highest P/E ratio as compared to its major competitors in the sparkling soda industry including Coca-Cola and Dr. Pepper. Even though it can be interpreted that PEP has lagged behind Coca-Cola over the years in US market but it is very important to understand that the majority of PepsiCo's revenues do not come from carbonated soft drinks.In fact, beverages account for less than 50% of total revenue. Additionally, over 60% of PepsiCo's beverage sales come from its key non-carbonated brands like......

...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......

PEPSI-COLA. 3 PEPSI’S BEGINNINGS PEPSI’S BEGINNINGS Caleb Bradham knew that to keep people returning to his pharmacy, he would have to turn it into a gathering place. Like many pharmacists at the turn of the century, he had a soda fountain in his drugstore, where he served his customers refreshing drinks that he created himself. His most popular creation was a unique mixture of carbonated water, kola nuts, vanilla and rare oils, named “Brad’s Drink” by his customers. Caleb decided to rename it “Pepsi-Cola,” and advertised his new soft drink to enthusiastic customers. Sales of Caleb Bradham (circled) was too focused on serving his customers Pepsi-Cola to pose for this picture. Pepsi-Cola started to grow, convincing him to form a company and market the new beverage. In 1902, he launched the Pepsi-Cola Company in the back room of his pharmacy, and applied to the U.S. Patent Office for a trademark. An official patent was awarded on June 16, 1903. At first, he mixed the syrup himself and sold it exclusively through soda fountains. But soon Caleb recognized that a greater opportunity existed—to bottle Pepsi-Cola so that people everywhere could enjoy it. 4 BUILDING THE BUSINESS BUILDING THE BUSINESS Advertising Pepsi-Cola as “Exhilarating, Invigorating, Aids Digestion,” the business began to grow.
