Porter Analysis: Threat of new entry: The threat of potential new entrant is strong. The barriers

The threat of potential new entrant is strong. The barriers to get into the industry are low. It’s not that expensive to start a business in this field. For this reason we can find a lot of new entrants.

Competitive Rivalry:

The competition is really strong for Panera Bread. There are so many direct competitors to the firm such as Starbucks, Atlanta bread company, Chipotle Mexican grill , Bruegger’s and many others ( as we can see in the appendix 9).Those firm are all fighting for the same goal : attracting customer’s and making profits. They’re all offering similar products which make it a hard competitive industry.

The threat of substitutes is Strong. Substitute product can be restaurants, fine dining even fast foods that offer different products or services from Panera bread. Substitute product can also be all the indirect competitors that offer different kind of food , locations , services.

Given the fact That many restaurants and fastfood chains exist in the United states , It explains That

the threat of substitutes Is really strong.

Strategy of Panera bread:

Differentiation is a key success factor for any business industry and especially for Panera bread. Due to the hard rivalry, it’s important for each firm to stand out from the competition. Panera Bread is a successful firm in the US for many reasons:

Competitive analysis

Nowadays, most restaurants are trying their best to attract customers by responding to their needs and preferences: such as providing the best dishes and menus as well as trendy food such as organic, vegetarian food. Obviously, Panera has a competitive advantage against it competitors by offering goods and ingredients that s ome competitors can’t really afford. Despite the fact that Panera has many competitors in the restaurant/fast food field, the firm does have its own differentiation strategy “ fast casual” restaurant. On the other hand, the firm offers higher prices than other regular restaurants but today the customers are willing to pay more for a better quality. Panera has also a great customer loyalty, which can be a great competitive advantage.

Franchise analysis:

Franchising has an increasing role in the economy of each country and especially in the united states. Panera’s main franchise strategy was to provide its franchisees with market analysis , a training program for employees as well as certifications , benchmarking data and calendar planning assistance. This strategy turned out to be a successful.

Supply Chain analysis:

The supply chain system of Panera bread provides bakery cafes with high-Quality food. The firm uses distributors to distribute products and materials to bakery cafes. Franchise-operated cafés operate under contracts with one of Panera’s independent distributors. This strategy include 2 initiatives: creating relationship with suppliers and adopting a discipline that allows firms to control costs and risks ( vendor management ) .

Supply Chain analysis: The supply chain system of Panera bread provides bakery cafes with high-Quality food.

From the suppliers of Panera Bread of their raw materials to produce bread and so son ever, the best bakeries, that they produce in fact themselves in the proper shops, to the Factories and then to not the Warehouse but to the Bakeries straight away, sometimes in the same place to be finally sold to the final customers and wait afterwards their feedback and work on gaining their loyalty.

The challenge of Panera Bread:

Despite the fact that Panera bread is a successful company (high growth rate, competitive

advantage,

).The

firm is operating in a high competitive industry (restaurant/fast food )

.. which obliges the company to constantly renew their strategy in order to attract customers and achieve profitable growth as well. Therefore how can Panera renew their strategy and continue to achieve high profits knowing that the competition is assiduous?

As far as I am concerned I think that Panera should extend their stores not only in the United States and Canada but also in Europe and specially in big cities such as London, Madrid, Amsterdam,. This strategy of international extension can allow Panera to have a better notoriety as well as a higher brand awareness in Europe. However , Panera Should also keep an eye on the american market which is constantly changing. In order to renew its strategy , Panera should propose more healthier options in the purpose to fight obesity and to raise awareness about health issues that Americans are facing on a daily basis. The firm could also offer Organic and vegetarian options for specific customers. As a third option , the firm needs to learn how to promote itself through social networks , commercials and TV spots.

Thank you Sir.
