Marketing research is defined as “a process of defining a market problem and opportunity, systematically collecting and analyzing information and recommend actions” (Armstrong & Kotler,p. 199, 2009). The goal of marketing research is to reduce risk and uncertainty. Organizations use the five- step marketing research approach to recommend to the organization what is needed, what will sell what the consumer wants, and knowing competitive intelligence.
The marketing strategy will present consumers with a line of fine quality imported or domestic foods or products. The marketing strategy will also include the introduction of a loyalty program in which will reward consumers with perks and savings for their continued support. In order to create such a program that will become popular with consumers, data will need to be collected and analyzed. This is where the marketing department will be spending a lot of time on. The expansion of the company will require additional market research in interested regions.
