Current business and operational performance
A major part of business analysis is an in-depth study of operational performance of existing retail operations in client locations resulting in a detailed report.
This identifies exactly where opportunities for retail revenue growth may lie and the most effective method for accessing sales.
For example, through marketing & merchandising techniques or where operational procedures could be enhanced to enable cost savings and how such improvements could be structured.
Current retail space, additional location potential
Any study of a retail foodservice business would look at where retail locations are situated and why, focusing on if they maximise customer footfall opportunities.
Are they situated in the best place? Analysis of locations, footprint and layout of retail spaces identifies potential portfolio gaps that could be filled with additional fixed locations,as well as mobile and pop-up operations to drive additional sales and margins.
Often it’s the case that a “new pair of eyes” can identify new opportunities that may not yet be maximised.
Brand performance analysis through benchmarking
Understanding how successfully current third-party brands are performing against market trends can be difficult for clients who may not have resources to study the market effectively.
Based on our project experience, we use our extensive database to benchmark key performance metrics and provide insight to support brand portfolio management. This leads to a range of retail options across all categories that allow clients to make the right choices for their locations.
Market testing and tender management of external brands
The optimum mix of external brands to meet customer expectations and drive maximum financial returns is essential.
Our impartial, in-depth knowledge of the market provides insight across all retail categories; coffee, bakery, shops, kiosks and so on. We can also manage the tender process to ensure choice of brands is smoothly implemented.
Consumer insight and research
End-users of any service will always have an opinion regarding the quality and effectiveness of their experience whether at work or in a retail setting.
Understanding needs and expectations are central to continued customer satisfaction. Our consumer insight programmes help find out what matters most to consumers.
