Caffe Umbria’s ideology is to provide its target market with high quality but mid-priced coffee on the go and in bagged blends to make and serve at home. By providing a cheaper alternative to places like Starbucks and other name brand expensive coffee shops, Caffe Umbria must make many smart choices when it comes to planning pricing, packaging and distribution.

In order to ensure the respondents accurately represented the SFU student body, we attempted to choose participants who were diverse in gender, faculty, nationality and year of study. This proved to be highly beneficial to the discussion, as it stimulated the exploration of ideas and topics that we had initially overlooked.

The model addresses buyer power, supplier power, threat of substitutes, threat of new entrants, and rivalry among existing competitors. The Model shows that the Buyer Power in the coffee/sandwich shop industry is slightly high because although we’re not offering anything new or revolutionary and we don’t have a lot of competition to contend with, that is until Starbucks moves in. As mentioned in the Business Dilemma, one of the ways we would gain a competitive advantage and become more attractive, which will ultimately reduce buyer power, we would offer free samples, expand the menu, and employ a simple loyalty program using a credit card sized cardboard “café card” that we stamp every time a customer a particular item. Once a customer receives a certain number of stamps, they would be eligible for discounts on café items of their choice. This type of loyalty program wouldn’t call for a sophisticated or expensive IT infrastructure.
