Business Analysis Of Perry, Fresh Food Company, And Templeton

Decent Essays
Perry, Fresh Food Company, and Templeton are the main cafeteria on the campus. The meal schedule is failing to some students. Some students do not have time to eat when cafeterias are open at certain time at far distance. Cafeterias might not be available when students have nothing or have time to be sociable. The campus needs to improve the schedule and the cafeteria because it is not flexible on weekend, has same food route, and have time issues.
First, the weekends are not flexible on food when there are a very few options to choose. For example, Perry is open on Saturday, and there are only two main courses to enjoy. If people could not find anything, they might go off-campus, or they find any place on campus that is open. It is the same

For instance, Perry is open for breakfast on Monday through Friday. They always have bacons, eggs, grits, biscuits, sausage, omelet and hash brown. It is mainly students having a basic breakfast course. They also serve sweets such as muffins, cinnamon roll or other sweet. It seems common that people go there when there are two other options to have. It might not look horrible, but the campus does not have any splendid ideas to serve. Fresh Food Company has others food, but they do not open for breakfast. People would eat the same breakfast every day when in their minds that they are tired of it. Perry needs to create new ideas, so people can enjoy it more when they have more options to choose instead of eating the same main …show more content…
There are certain places that are open and closed on certain days. For example, Perry is the only place that anyone use a block meal for breakfast. This leads to problem because it is not just students having class conflict, but it is also far distance for students who live in the South Zone halls or apartments. Those students are closer to Fresh Food Company helps students’ life easier even the cafeteria is open for lunch and dinner. Templeton are not open on weekend when Templeton has better food options. It is difficult for students who do not have time to go there when the weekend is a perfect time. For another example, campus might have a three or more days, and it sounds terrific. On the down side, there is not much open, and it is not fair to students when they might have problem of their own. These students might have car problems or travelling distance. It could be a conflict with people who are forced to stay on campus for any events. This show the campus does not feed their students enough when they prefer to go out to a restaurant or other fast food place. On the other hand, it is cheaper and easier for campus can afford for their students. When there is no fantastic event going on weekend, there are not many students living on campus. This also leads that it might be easier to pay the food products. The both of the cafeteria are doing fine so far. Student have their own food to feed themselves.

    He also states that "small proportions of students report that the most important reason (they do not eat the food) is because they are not hungry, they thought the meal was too expensive, they did not realize they could eat a school lunch, or they had other reasons" (217S). The school lunch meal was considered expensive according to a student. But, what if these student 's don 't want to eat school lunches and they don 't want snacks from the vending machine? Well, some schools give the option for their students to have off-campus lunch. Off-campus lunch allows students to go eat at restaurants, fast food places, or even at home.…

    I started this food diary during the beginning of Fall Semester, so I was busy preparing for school and getting organized in all my classes. I failed to take time going to the grocery store and stock up on food and instead would go every other day to get what I felt like eating that day. Due to this, I ate out at fast food more frequently than normal because it was convenient to my schedule. That being said, I would skip a meal or not snack at all because of my schedule, when on a normal week I cherish breakfast, lunch and dinner time. Meal planning was the least of my concern this week so that hindered my eating pattern significantly.…

    To obtain this information, I created a survey and shared it over Twitter. Of the 66 students, that responded, 80.5% said they wished that they could have better access to this food. Now it is true that the ability to cook may have hindered the sales of food to college students, only 12% said that they cooked daily. But 47% of people said that a fast food restaurant was closer (0-1 miles) than a grocery store (1-2 miles). The fact that people are not cooking is not attributed to a lack of ability, but rather a lack of availability.…

    Chartwells Case Study

    Therefore, if a restaurant is considered undesirable (e.g. high price, low quality of food), there is likely a low demand for its products due to the large number of substitutes (high PED). However, it has been noticed that despite many students complaining about the quality and price of Chartwells lunches, the lack of options, and long waiting lines, the majority continue to buy lunch from Chartwells daily. Hence it is hypothesised that this is due to Chartwells’ ability to gain monopoly power and operate as a monopoly within the sector of catering lunch to AISHK students. Since this monopoly power is not gained by most other firms in the food industry, Chartwells’ sources of monopoly power are unique, and likely come from the agreements between AISHK and Chartwells.…

    Like any art, some people excel and others have no talent whatsoever. I’m not saying I’m the Monet of culinary arts, probably closer to Picasso, but some foods can be fairly easy. Still, some families may not have the time to go shopping and cook a fresh meal. According to the article, “Home Cooked Meals vs. Fast Food Meals,” by Joseph Pritchard, “Despite the health risks that come with fast food consumption, people continue to eat it because many people have no time to select and prepare food at home.” Though there are health risks, many families have no other choice. With other families, the problem may be money.…

    Clearly, that is not enough to feed a pregnant mother. By eating healthy, the school lunches should consist of lean meats, vegetables, and plenty of options (Kosar). It is also not fair because the teachers can get however much food as they want. Some high school students are as big as the teachers and would also like to eat more but they are stuck with the small servings given in student lunches. Some people might claim that bigger portions of food are the reason for child obesity, therefore, the children should adapt to healthier habits and need to take the time to get used to small portions.…
