Market Summary

Opportunities
 McDonald's has maintained an extensive advertising campaign for decades.
For popularity they use media (television, radio, and newspaper), the company
makes significant use of billboards and signage, sponsors sporting events from
ranging from Little League to the Olympic Games, and makes coolers of
orange drink with their logo available for local events of all kinds. Television
has always played a central role in the company's advertising strategy. They
always advertise McDonalds much different way to their customers. Until
now, McDonald's has used 23 different slogans in United States for
advertising, and few others slogans for select countries and regions.
 They have the ability to add healthier lines of food. They have already gotten
rid of super sizing and they have made their fries healthier currently. The
Golden Arches are now more widely recognized than the Christian cross.
McDonald's operates more playgrounds - designed to attract children (and
their parents) to its restaurants - than any other private entity in the US

Business Concept
 Delivery speed, customer care and cleanliness are the core strengths on which
these stores expanded. They created a corporate symbol and their
advertisement campaigns were highly successful in establishing the brand
image and logo in the minds of the millions.
 Two main competitors generally identified with McDonalds are the Burger
King and the KFC. McDonalds marketing strategy is concerned with the
internal resources, external environment and its basic competencies along with
its share holders.
 McDonald's product value is also its greatest strengths. Customers know what
to expect when they walk into a McDonalds store.

Competition
 Burger King, KFC, Wendy's, Taco Bell
 McDonalds is also now trying to compete
with Starbucks by selling coffee drinks and
smoothies.
 They deal with competition by trying to
have the best product and service they can
offer.

Goals & Objectives
 McDonalds has already built a hotel in
Switzerland, so I see that it is very likely
that they will try to expand in that market.
 They will also try to open more restaurants
in foreign countries.

Risks & Rewards
 McDonalds faces risks by opening stored in foreign countries.
 McDonalds realized that different countries have different customs so
they take special measures to to prevent conflict, “Since Israel now has
a kosher McDonald's, since Saudi Arabia's McDonald's closes five
times a day for Muslim prayer, since Egypt has 18 McDonald's and
Jordan is getting its first, the chances of a war between them are
minimal. But watch out for that Syrian front. There are no Big Macs
served in Damascus. India-Pakistan? I'm still worried. India, where 40
percent of the population is vegetarian, just opened the first beefless
McDonald's (vegetable nuggets!), but Pakistan is still a Mac-free
zone.”

Key Issues

 However still trying to maintain the same quality and service even
though all stores are different.
