...Introduction Pizza Hut was started in 1958, by two brothers in Wichita, Kansas. Frank and Dan Carney had the idea to open a pizza parlor. They borrowed $600 from their mother, and opened the very first Pizza Hut. In 1959, the first franchise unit opened in Topeka, Kansas. Almost ten years later, Pizza Hut would be serving one million customers a week in their 310 locations. In 1970, Pizza Hut was put on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol PIZ. In 1986, Pizza Hut introduced delivery service, something no other restaurant was doing. By the 1990's Pizza Hut sales had reached $4 billion worldwide. In 1998, Pizza Hut celebrated their 40th anniversary, and launched their famous campaign "The Best Pizzas Under One Roof." In 1996, Pizza Hut sales in the United States were over $5 million. Out of all the existing pizza chains, Pizza Hut had the largest market share, 46.4%. However, Pizza Hut's market share has slowly eroded because of intense competition from their rivals Domino's, Little Caesar's and newcomer Papa John's. Home delivery was a driving force for success, especially for Pizza Hut and Domino's. However, this forced competitors to look for new methods of increasing their customer bases. Many pizza chains decided to diversify and offer new non-pizza items such as buffalo wings, and Italian cheese bread. The current trend in pizza chains today is the same. They all try to come up with some newer, bigger, better, pizza for a low price. Offering special......

As people’s tastes change and new diets become the rage, restaurant chains must decide if and how to respond. This case focuses on the research behind the introduction of Donato’s low-carbohydrate pizza, and how the company collapsed its normal product-development research process to take advantage of a current trend. www.donatos.com >The Scenario Some strategic windows remain open for an extended period of time; other, don’t. One of those slim windows faced Tom Krouse, chief concept officer with Donato’s, an independent premium pizza restaurant chain, headquartered in Columbus (Ohio). Krouse, who is reponsible for new product development, had to answer a question facing many restaurants: Is the low-carb diet a flash fad or a trend—and should we respond? “Restaurants are influenced my many factors: product, message, weather, reputation, and competition, to name a few. But mostly we are influenced by changing eating habits. As a result, we monitor a variety of sources. One of these is syndicated research obtained from The Yankelovich Monitor and NPD Eating Trends. Another is e-mail comments from customers received via our web site.

...staff hence having the right recruitment and selection process is vital in ensuring that the newly acquired or incoming employee becomes effective or valuable in the shortest time possible. The success of an organization relies on having a definite number of employees with precise abilities and skills. Pizza hut being part of these organizations adopted a strategic staffing plan to ensure that it remains as much effective, profitable and responsible as possible. Pizza hut has formulated a strategy with an expression of its overall mission or purpose, and established broad objectives and goals which will guide it towards the fulfillment of its mission. Underlying these goals are certain assumptions regarding the types and size of workforces which are required to be recruited, inducted, managed rewarded and retained. The HR strategy for Pizza hut represents how these workforce conventions will be undertaken. This strategy does not only flow from the overall strategy but also contribute directly in the formulation of the overall strategy of pizza hut (Pizza hut, 2007). The HR strategy seeks to align the recruitment, selection of work force with the overall strategy of pizza hut through the staffing strategy. The staffing strategy in the real sense is an outgrowth of the overall strategy and the HR strategy. The staffing strategy is informed through the following steps of recruitment process.

...SCM Term Paper In the term paper, I would like to further discuss the ZARA case. My reasons are as followed. To begin with, ZARA has become a most popular fashion collection retailer in Taiwan, so it is interesting and instructive to understand how it can attain such success. Moreover, since I am an “IT” person, I would also like to figure out whether the information system plays an important role in ZARA’s supply chain. To start with my paper, I will first introduce some properties or concepts that had been discussed in class and were pertinent to ZARA. * Distribution Center: Distribution of both outsourced and in-house manufactured garments was centralized at Zara’s 500,000 square meter distribution center in La Coruna. Hanging garments were arranged on coded bars that sorted automatically by style within the distribution center; stock-picking of hanging garments was done manually. Folded garments were sorted on a carousel, with each garment dropped down a chute toward a box for its destination store based on its bar code. Shipments were made out of the distribution center twice a week. Local stores received goods within 24-36 hours of shipment in Europe and within 1-2 days outside Europe. No inventory was held centrally, and there was almost no inventory at the stores that was not on the selling floor. * Integral Process: Zara is a great example of applying vertical integration in supply chain. Zara’s products are designed at the Inditex headquarters in La......

Domino should maintain low-cost or focusing more health conscious approach which leads to higher price. 2. How can the company maintain efficiency in this high competitive environment which most of the firms provide almost the same product as now Domino is number two in the market. Analysis Five Forces Model Bargaining power of suppliers is low due to undifferentiated product from suppliers, low switching cost and easy to switch, and also lots of substitute of supply. Bargaining power of customers is low as the customers do not buy large volumes, no concentration of buyers. Threat of new entrances is high due to high capital requirement to set up the chain, product differentiation expense required and cost disadvantage from similarity in product offering. Threat of substitutes is high due to lots of substitute and low switching cost. Competitive rivalry is high due to there are many company offer the same product and compete in the saturate market.

Pizza

...Pizza Pizza is a popular commodity, acclaimed by people with its rich sauces, succulent cheeses, and delicious meats. Pizza began its significance; back in B.C. as a flavored flatbread in the Mediterranean region of Italy. It was believed that poor ancient Greeks only made pizza because it was affordable. Pizzerias subsequently began to spread internationally by the turn of the nineteenth century, especially in the United States alone. Currently, pizza is one of the world’s most favorite necessities, due to its different styles, mouth-watering dishes, and countless ingredients. Primarily, pizza is known for its different styles being produced in the United States, for example New-York style, Chicago-style, and Detroit-style. Inspired by the Mediterranean influence, each style of pizza contains herbs, spices, and cooking oils. New-York style pizzas are known for their thin, buttery crusts and are usually served folded. Pizza chains, Sbarro and Dominoes advertise and dominate the northern styles, because of Italian influence. When Italian immigrants came to New York, they spread their influence of pizza to the city; therefore Italian-Americans own pizza shops all over the city. Chicago is known for there deep dish style, a popular pizza with a thick crust, garlic butter, layers of meats, and mozzarella cheeses. Second, pizza can be made into several dishes. Different countries have made similar dishes of pizza, for example manakish, pitas, and calzones. Manakish is an......

Pizzas

...History Main article: History of pizza The Ancient Greeks covered their bread with oils, herbs and cheese. The Romans developed placenta, a sheet of flour topped with cheese and honey and flavored with bay leaves. Modern pizza originated in Italy as the Neapolitan pie with tomato. In 1889 cheese was added.[2] King Ferdinand I (1751–1825) is said to have disguised himself as a commoner and, in clandestine fashion, visited a poor neighborhood in Naples. One story has it that he wanted to sink his teeth into a food that the queen had banned from the royal court—pizza.[3] In 1889, during a visit in Naples, Queen Margherita of Savoy was served a pizza resembling the colors of the Italian flag, red (tomato), white (mozzarella) and green (basil). This kind of pizza has been named after the Queen as Pizza Margherita. Base and baking methods Pizzas in a traditional wood-fired brick oven The bottom of the pizza, called the "crust", may vary widely according to style—thin as in a typical hand-tossed pizza or Roman pizza, or thick as in a typical pan pizza or Chicago-style pizza. It is traditionally plain, but may also be seasoned with garlic, or herbs, or stuffed with cheese. In restaurants, pizza can be baked in an oven with stone bricks above the heat source, an electric deck oven, a conveyor belt oven or, in the case of more expensive restaurants, a wood- or coal-fired brick oven. On deck ovens, the pizza can be slid into the oven on a long paddle, called a peel, and baked......

Recognition

...Recognition-based awards are given when employees go above and beyond. Employees are usually given plaques, trophies, certificates, small gifts, vacations, and dinners with company officials as a way to recognize their achievements. Cash awards are sometimes also given. Some examples of awards are outstanding achievement, excellent customer service, and length of service award. Awards are also given out to say “thank you”, “job well done”, and “you are valued as an employee”. When managers decide to give out recognition awards they have to have some guidelines that they need to follow. They need to first make sure that they have a clearly defined purpose for the award and that all team members know what it is. They also have to determine the type of award, who is eligible, and what criteria needs to be meet. Lastly they will need to decide if there is going to be award money, how it is going to funded and paid out and how the award is going to be given. Having a purpose for awards helps employees know why and how the award is going not only benefit themselves but the company as a whole. By informing employees about the purpose of the award all helps to encourage the behavior that is being awarded. Managers also need to make sure that eligibility is very clear. They need to make sure that all employees understand who is and who isn’t eligible without any room for misunderstanding.

Pizza Hut

...Pizza Hut Scenario Pizza Hut has built an outstanding reputation for service that has earned the respect of the customer. Building a leading pizza company requires continuous innovation, commitment to quality and dedication to customer service and value. One of Pizza Hut's target audiences is on-the-go-moms. Busy moms want to be guilt-free of their busy lifestyle and still want to provide good satisfying meals in a hurry. Pizza Hut offers both value and convenience. Great options are the Skinny Pizzas, which have fewer calories that the health-conscious mom can appreciate. An insightful way to reach out to these moms could be advertising in the periodicals that they read. Busy moms are always looking for useful tips and ideas from such publications as Ladies Home Journal, Woman's Day, and Redbook. Another target group is young adult males. Pizza is so versatile; it easily fits into young men's active lifestyle. It is no muss, no fuss that makes it super convenient, and cold pizza out of the fridge the next morning is a champ's breakfast. A good way to reach out to this group is through media campaigns that incorporate sports. Super Bowl, Sunday night football, March Madness are just some examples. Pizza Hut engages the customers that visit their website through personal interaction. Customers can pick and choose endless combinations of crust, sauce, and toppings. Who doesn't want it their way? Express Checkout is offered to repeat customers so that they ......

...choice though, in within the people of the world, the people in America. Should the government really tell us what to eat? There are already so many laws on many of other things. Is it right for them to let us bear arms, but control the things we eat? There should be no such thing. The government shouldn’t have to worry about what people make with their own decision. Government shouldn’t have control over what we eat or what we drink. Why is it okay for some people to carry a gun, but we have to worry about if we’re going to have a salad with a side of apples or oranges? It is not okay. Yes, the obesity rate has sky rocketed through the roof, but that is people’s own personal choice. They’re not harming anyone else with eating a slice of pizza with a side of French fries. I understand that, that may not be the healthiest thing for them to consume but that is their own decision, they are the ones getting hurt, not anyone around them. Whereas if someone had the rights to carry a gun, there are risks to the point where someone else could also get hurt. Not one person being harmed, more like another and a possibility of multiple people being in danger of that. Being healthy is a huge part of life. Yet if someone wants to be happy and eat unhealthy they have the choice to. The government should not take over what is served in restaurants, cafeterias, museums, or WCU. Although this could help many people with their obesity, some people like the way they are, they’re happy......

Pizza

...My Favorite Food Background I love pizza since I was a kid. I remember my first experience when I ate pizza. My mother brought me a slice of Pizza when she got home from grocery. At that time I wondered about the pizza because it has triangle shape and like having a rubber on it. Soon after I ate pizza and tasted it I became love it. Here are some other reasons why I choose pizza for my favorite food: • First, Pizza is all season food. I can have it anytime I want whether in winter or summer and I do not have to wait for special event. When I get exhausted after back from work and need to find my dinner I just simply call the room service to ask for pizza or call pizza to be delivered. • Second, Pizza has many varieties. I can never get bored with pizza because I can have thousands of varieties of pizza and put anything I want on it. • Finally, Pizza is affordable for me because the price is not expensive and it can fit with my budget. Why I Love Pizza As I mention before, I love pizza because I have several reasons to support it. And now I would like to discuss it a little bit more so that you can understand why I love pizza. 1. All Season food I can always eat Pizza regardless the season I have, not like ice cream which is too cold to eat in winter or grilled turkey where you can only have it in Thanksgiving. Furthermore my job requires me to travel to many cities in Indonesia and also to other countries. When I cannot figure out what food I want to eat for my...
