Kfc In China - 1,683 words
In 1986, Tony Wang was Vice President of the Southeast Asia division of KFC. He had an opportunity of bringing the world's largest chicken restaurant company into the world's largest populated country. Wang was an experienced entrepreneur and had been working for KFC for seven years. No other fast food companies were currently operating in the People's Republic, so Wang did not have anything to go by and nothing to help him evaluate the attractiveness of the Chinese market. The main downsides of operating in China were huge demand on managerial resources and the low prospects of significant hard currency repatriation. The first decision that Wang was faced with was where to open the location ...

Motivation In Business - 1,008 words
The growth of franchising in America and Europe since the 1970s[1-4] has led to this business form assuming increasing impor-tance in a number of academic debates, including the fields of law, marketing, organi-zation theory, services growth, etc. One of the most interesting issues here is the potential of franchising to provide self-employment opportunities. After all, not only are most franchisees small businesses, but so are most franchisors. For instance, in Britain, half of the franchise systems in existence in 1995 were less than five years old and 43 per cent had ten outlets or less. Franchises are based, ideally, on a proven and tried-and-tested recipe for business success. The im ...

JUST as 130 nations were meeting in Montreal recently to forge the first global treaty regulating genetically modified crops, Frito-Lay Inc. was telling its farmers in the United States not to grow genetically engineered corn for use in Doritos chips and other snacks. The problem, the company said, was not a risk to health from the corn but a risk that consumers wouldn't want it. These two events reflect the unease with which genetically engineered foods have been received. Science has reached what might be the takeoff stage for a new green revolution. But it may instead go the way of nuclear power -- a once-promising technology largely rejected by society. The potential benefits of genetic ...

New Music - 1,111 words
The music industry ripping off the kids! There was a time when music had integrity. Back when the gangsters and racketeers ruled the music business, the music had a real sense of integrity to it. That was back when gangsters knew of "this hot new band/artist" they had noticed in their buddy's club. Then, if they owned their own club, they book that band for gigs. Or maybe a relative of theirs was in a band, and that band had street credibility; all they needed was a break. The bands took pride in making a full album, a collection of songs reflecting their current state of affairs. Back then the people who ran the record companies were music fans. In the last ten years, however, a disturbing ...

Significance Of Social And Economic Change In The Usa Between 1898-1921 - 2,647 words
Sweeping social and economic reforms that occur in any country at any time are always very significant. In relation to the United States of America (USA) during the period of 1898-1921, it is even more so. This period of time saw remarkable changes occurring both inside the USA, and in relation to the USA and the outside world as it became a global force. After the Spanish-American War, led by President McKinley, American ideologies, basically ignorant, capitalist and isolationist at heart, seemed to shift and do a 180 degree turn. This can be said as being signified by the accession of the political dogma of Progressivism, advocated by the next President Theodore Roosevelt, who believed in ...

The fast food industry has always had one purpose in mind, to maximize profits. Similar to any other fast food restaurant, McDonalds takes this goal to heart and is doing quite well in attaining it. Essentially, any fast food restaurant uses the concept that food nourishes the society just as it sustains the individual to legitimize many of their practices. However, how do fast food restaurants succeed? How do they interact with the customers so that one chain out does its nearest competitor? The answer lies in the basic employee.
