6a01310f54565d970c01b8d05c9866970c-800wiWith Elizabeth Friend - Consumer Foodservice Analyst

Burger King recently announced they will purchase Tim Hortons for eleven billion dollars and move its headquarters to Canada. The new company will own about 23.5 billion in terms of annual revenue, putting them behind McDonald’s and Yum! Brands as the third largest consumer foodservice operator in the world. This merger gives Tim Hortons an opportunity to aggressively expand in new markets and gives Burger King a way to compete in the breakfast and coffee segments.

Shake Shack IPO Rumors and the Better Burgers Trend

6a01310f54565d970c01b8d05c9866970c-800wiWith Elizabeth Friend - Consumer Foodservice Analyst

US-based burger chain Shake Shack is reportedly seeking an IPO, which would make it one of the first ‘better burger’ chains behind Five Guys to pursue a national expansion. Typically, many major restaurant trends have a well-defined boom and bust lifecycle, but the better burgers trend is extending far beyond the normal lifestyle-driven trend. Although Shake Shack is a regional chain with a long road ahead to becoming national, its design and appeal give it a good chance to come out on top among the competition.

Kraft Licenses Coffee Brands for use in Green Mountain's Keurig

6a01310fa9a669970c01a511f73ed7970c-800wi 6a01310f54565d970c01a3fce3cf1a970b-800wiWith Jonas Feliciano, Beverages Industry Analyst and Dana LaMendola, Beverages Industry Analyst



The recent deal between Kraft and Green Mountain gives liscensing rights to Green Mountain to distribute Kraft's brand of products in pod form for use in Keurig machines. Kraft's brands are a large gain for Green Mountain, who's main strategy is to obtain liscenses from large coffee players. Kraft's Maxwell House brand is the second largest coffee brand in the US, and given the success of Starbucks and Folger's pods, Kraft's larger-known brands are expected to perform well in pod format.

Scotts Acquires Solus Brands

EURO_NT_Jack.Skelly_LThumbWith Jack Skelly, Research Analyst

Scotts Miracle-Gro’s UK subsidiary, The Scotts Company, recently purchased the Solus brands which includes Yeoman hand tools.  Although Scott’s is the leading garden care company in the world, it lacks a competitive hand tools brand. Yeoman will fill a gap in Scott’s brand portfolio in the UK, and if this move is successful, Scott’s can adapt the strategy worldwide.

With Coca-Cola’s Distribution, Monster’s Innovations Can Shine on International Stage

On the heels of Coca-Cola’s 16.7% acquisition of Monster Energy, speculation regarding the potential for Monster’s international expansion is high. In the agreement, Coke traded its energy brands (and markets) for Monster’s non-energy brands. Monster also agreed to make Coca-Cola is preferred global distribution partner, while Coca Cola agreed to let Monster operate as its only energy play. Global off-trade value sales of energy drinks have slowed in recent years, but the category’s forecast US$12 billion absolute off-trade value growth from 2013-2018 bodes well for both parties. Furthermore, the expansion of energy functionality into categories such as RTD tea, juice, carbonates, and bottled water favours manufacturers able to reliably generate new flavours and formulations. As Monster begins its international expansion in earnest, the combination of Coca-Cola’s speed to market and Monster’s knack for new products could play well in a global landscape where product lifecycles are becoming shorter all the time.

Yesterday’s dismal eurozone Q2 GDP results appear to show the fragile recovery derailed. Real GDP growth for the bloc was flat at 0.0% quarter-on-quarter. The most notable results were the negative growth in the eurozone’s largest economy – Germany – and also it’s third largest Italy – which is now in the midst of a triple dip recession. Meanwhile, France – the second largest economy – saw flat growth.

Consumers are slowly adopting pre-recession spending habits in all aspects of their lives, and vacations and holidays are no different. In 2014, consumers aren’t restricting themselves to “staycations”, although they remain budget-conscious when travelling.  Many consumers are taking camping holidays, family trips and staying with friends in order to leave their dwellings but stay within their budgets.

Procter and Gamble to Divest 100 Brands

Procter and Gamble announced they would divest 100 brands over the next two years, a move in line with the company’s ongoing restructuring process. One of the challenges that P&G faces is that the company does not have sufficient coverage across the pricing spectrum in comparison to its rivals, and by freeing up resources by divesting brands P&G may attempt to broaden its presence in both premium and value products.
