1.0 Description & Justification

 

            1.1 Introduction of McVeggie

We chose McDonald’s as our parent organisation. The company vision is to be the best quick service restaurant experience, which means providing outstanding quality, service, cleanliness, and value. The mission is to be our customer`s first choice, when it comes to, top quality products, outstanding service / cleanness and great value for money. Then, finally we can make every customer in every restaurant smile.

●     McDonald`s® Brand Vision & Mission

○   "To be the best quick service restaurant experience". Being the best means providing outstanding quality, service, cleanliness, and value, so that we make every customer in every restaurant smile.

■     https://www.mcdonaldsegypt.com/en/page/page/242

○     Our overall vision is for McDonald’s to become a modern, progressive burger company delivering a contemporary customer experience. Modern is about getting the brand to where we need to be today and progressive is about doing what it takes to be the McDonald’s our customers will expect tomorrow. To realize this commitment, we are focused on delivering great tasting, high-quality food to our customers and providing a world-class experience that makes them feel welcome and valued

            1.2 Justification of Change why the project is being carried out***

Description

We like to introduce a new project within the McDonald’s chain called McVeggie. This project focus on developing a fast food chain for vegetarians and vegans. The new type of restaurant will produce some of the old fast food favorites like french fries and onion right, however the we will use a different type of oil that does not contain beef flavor. We will also like to keep the old fast food classic like burgers, however these will be meat free. Also new types of food will be introduced, like falafel and other exciting vegetarian options.

Justification

McDonald’s claim in their vision that they want to be “a modern, progressive burger company”. We think this project is the perfect way to stay modern as veganism and vegetarianism is really an up and coming movement, and by launching McVeggie, McDonald’s stay modern at the same time as they listen to their customers’ demand, wants and needs. 

 

1.3 McVeggie’s Objective (SMART Analysis)

 

The objective of this project is to be the vegan and vegetarian fast food chain with 150 departments in the UK by 2030 with a market share of 20%.

●     Rebranding an organisation

○   McDonald’s

○   Vegan/Vegetarian fast food launch

○   PESTLE(to find out where to test the project before launch)

○   Make sure our strategy not against their vision

 

 

  • McDonald’s Strategy

○     Market Penetration. McDonald’s uses market penetration as its primary intensive strategy for growth. In applying this intensive strategy, McDonald’s grows by reaching more customers in markets where it already has operations. For example, McDonald’s opens new restaurants in North America and Europe by franchising, joint ventures or corporate ownership. A strategic objective connected to this intensive growth strategy is global expansion through new locations. McDonald’s generic strategy supports this intensive growth strategy because low costs and low prices empower the firm to easily penetrate markets.

○     Market Development. In its early years, McDonald’s used market development as its primary intensive strategy for growth. However, market development is now a secondary intensive growth strategy because McDonald’s already has restaurants in most regions around the world, except Mongolia, some parts of the Middle East and west Asia, and the majority of African countries. A strategic objective for this intensive growth strategy is to establish new locations in new markets, such as new McDonald’s restaurants in African or Middle Eastern countries where the company currently has no operations. Based on its generic strategy of cost leadership, McDonald’s supports this intensive growth strategy by using low prices to compete in new markets.

○     Product Development. McDonald’s uses product development as its tertiary or supporting intensive strategy for growth. In applying this intensive growth strategy, McDonald’s develops new products over time, such as new McCafé products. These new products may be variations of existing products, or entirely new products. The strategic objective for this intensive growth strategy is to capture more consumers by attracting them to new products. This intensive growth strategy agrees with McDonald’s broad differentiation generic strategy in terms of new products that make the company distinct.
