Mc Donald Marketing Channel


McDonald's is constantly striving to add value to the firm for their customers The firm has created efficiency in getting the products to the customers quickly and as fresh as possible Always looking for ways to improve because of the continuous updates on equipment, improvement on serving time thus making McDonald's a more efficient business.

Cont..
Many of McDonalds restaurants are open 24 hours a day So in order to meet demand consistently, Mc D practice a distribution strategy called "intensive distribution", means marking the product available for sale through all possible channels of distribution Intensive distribution is stocking the product in as many outlets as possible

Cont..
McDonald's value chain is unique because of the rare need to depend upon other companies for supplies The firm owns nearly every portion of the value chain including warehouses, delivery trucks, and the real estate where their restaurants built McDonald's established warehouses within a reasonable proximity to all of their restaurants to solve some of the logistical problems it had experienced This, along with owning the warehouses allows the restaurants to get all of the needs met in one shipment and not deal with multiple suppliers

Cont..
The firm's mutual effort with suppliers to develop and improve products and production techniques enables McDonald's to meet the high quality standards The elimination of too many intermediaries, has allowed McDonald's to pass that value along to the customer. Every dollar spent in getting the goods to the customer causes prices to rise (Ferrel et al., 2005)
