Assignment B
CASE STUDY
Variety is spice of Life - Indian Fast Food Industry
Walk down the streets of Delhi (or for that matter any big city), one will come across number of food joints, starting from the local „dhaba? To one time favourite food the Delhites „Nirula? S? To the KFC? s and Mc Donald?s. The fast food industry has a sizable number of new entrants and the trend seems to continue. An obvious reason for such industrial growth seems to be the „cosmopolitan? Taste pattern developed by us. An average Indian 5-10 years back would imagine a masala dosa or a burger to be a fast food. We have come a long way from those days. Today’s Indians, and by that we do not mean only the „X-generation?, but, school children, middle aged executives, grandfathers and house wives, all are fond of fast food, In fact, fast food is too general a term, Today one has to specify, whether he wants a „fish-o-fillet? Burger from Mc Donald?s or a „pan pizza? From the Pizza Hut or the special KFC fried chicken, the list of various types of fast food just goes on.
Technically speaking, it is the same chicken, which will be simply roasted with the standard Indian margination in a road side tandoor, while in a KFC outlet, the chicken will be fried in the famous KFC batter, and served with finger chips, coleslaw and the Coke. You feel you have been transported to the country of Uncle Sam. There lies the difference. For the consumer, it is a different product.
The „product? Is differentiated in a number of ways starting from the way you present, the ambience of the eating joint to the location and duration of working hours. The shop owners harp on this factor and bolster their sales based on this „product differentiation? In their advertisements.
After all a Mc Chicken burger, with its declared calorie content, rendered by well-dressed smart boys and girls in the posh market place is not the same as a simple chicken burger, kept in the hot case of a local shop. Product Differentiation is costly. Developing a new variety of cheese to be used on your pizza and to suit the Indian taste requires some laboratory research, market research and aggressive sales effort. Opening another Mc Donald? S joint in another busy market place all these are costly affair. But, this differentiation brings in additional revenue. A new chicken burger with lesser calorie content than an average burger will attract the young girls. A KFC outlet with a special floor filled with balls and balloons will be a child’s delight. Since this is an industry, where anybody with a decent budget can enter, it almost becomes an obligation for the existing ones to have a continues product innovation and differentiation to continue in the business, in the long term.

  1. Describe how you will justify that the above example is describing monopolistic competition. Can you draw a parallel example for another industry?
    2. What are the marketing strategies followed under monopolistic competition?
