If this Continues, Starbucks may lose out completely in the Hands of Competitors

Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, made a quirky proclamation last year that Starbuck’s huge lifespan is a 20 chapter book and they are still on chapter 4 or 5. Howard used this metaphor to throw light on coffee-shop’s bright future and the best coffee service provider worldwide but one has to tell Mr. Schultz that it the chapter 5, where the twist and turns begin.

If this was all true (as said by Mr CEO) then how to justify the closing of 600 stores worldwide? The reason given was that Starbucks wanted to put breaks on the exponential growth strategy. Isn’t that weird?  What about the decline in market share to 11 % (which is indeed a huge figure) as tracked by xAd Inc.? Let’s go deeper and find out Why Starbucks is losing out on customers? And if this continues then I am afraid to say the company may have a dark future.

Reason 1: Highly Priced

The dissatisfaction is been increasing day by day even among the loyal customers. The items like sandwiches and salads are priced very high as compared to other chains. The pretzel ham and cheese which was quite reasonable, was called off by some Chief financial officer due to lesser profits it was offering. It seems Starbucks is now running some bureaucratic culture. The actual Starbucks experience has been lost somewhere.

Reason 2: Quality is getting de-graded

Starbucks is losing control of its brand due to ubiquity. Starbucks is available almost at every airport, hospital and numerous corporate cafeterias. Managing out on quality at such places is difficult. The good Starbucks memories are turning pale and sour with this kind of culture where at every nick and corner you find a small Starbuck café.

Reason 3: High attrition rate among employees

Poor staff morale is reflected on their faces. The staff members are prefer going to the competitors like Barista, McDonald’s. It has also been noticed that from the past few years the either the staff is not well trained or they lack technical knowledge about coffee.

Reason 4: No lucrative offers and Mobile ordering delays

Starbucks Corp is facing heavy competition in the market. Locational survey suggests that a huge drift has been noticed towards other chains. Delays on mobile ordering are creating hiccups for the company. They even don’t offer any free service or offers to attract the customers. People prefer a place where they get free/ unlimited Wi-Fi signals or some free cups to relish. They lack in this and if all this continues, there will be a future without Starbucks.

There are lot more other reasons like they have replaced the comfortable chairs and wooden tables with the stainless steel ones. The impact is more of an Office than a café.

FUNDAMENTALS TO OPEN A COFFEE SHOP

The idea of starting a business is a wonderful one.  If the decision is taken with confidence, it is the stepping stone of one’s success.  Mere having confidence is not enough.  There are some basic fundamentals to be followed to open a coffee shop.

coffeeshop

You want to open a coffee shop, you should first like the taste of coffee.  It is not that someone wanting to do business for instance, liquor should have the habit of drinking it.  No….. I feel Coffee is one such beverage that can be had by anyone (of course avoid giving it to children).

Being a coffee lover myself, I feel coffee is a good refreshing beverage. Coffee can be bifurcated as caffeine and decaffeine. Normally, Coffee consists of a substance called caffeine which is not good for people with health complications.  On the other hand, decaffeine coffee comes without the caffeine content. Nowadays, decaffeine coffee is available in market.  This sort of coffee is suitable for people who are health conscious.

You want to open a coffee shop, there are some basic fundamentals you need to study and take appropriate action.

 

  • Open a coffee shop of your own: Opening your own coffee shop means you are the boss. You need to work from the scratch i.e., investing, developing the business etc. As long as the business is legal, you are not bound to any obligations.

decaf__Cat__prod__pg_

  • Become a Coffee Shop Franchisee: Becoming a Coffee Shop Franchisee means you are the boss but you will working for a coffee brand as the company will provide you the raw material, knowhow and other support. Your only job is to manage the show. You will become part of the brand progress and hence will be bound to follow the rules and regulations of the parent unit.

 

  • Certifications from concerned Health Departments: This is very important point to the taken care of. No matter you open your own shop or take a franchise, proper and appropriate certification from health department is a must.

  • Investment: This again depends on whether you want to open your own coffee shop or become franchisee.  In case you opt for opening your own shop, then based on your financial level, you can start with a small amount and gradually improve your business.

In case of becoming franchisee, then also you will have to invest but this will be limited to shop premises and other expenses.  The basic raw materials will be supplied by the parent unit.

  • Publicity of your coffee shop: You want to succeed in coffee business, then study the market perfectly. You should be aware of the coffee related products, the promotions given by competitors, new innovations in coffee preparations etc.  I don’t say you should imply everything into your business, but awareness is always good. It always helps you to take necessary actions.  Developing a good social network is always the first priority.

The New Trend: Online Coffee Shopping

Nowadays, people are more inclined towards online shopping. And why not, when you can get anything you want right at your fingertips from the comfort of your home, then why undergo the hassle of driving to the nearest store (which might not be near) and getting the thing.

People are very comfortable shopping various things online but when it comes to coffee, they are still skeptical about the idea. They are often concerned about the quality of the product they’ll get online. Believe me, it’s amusing!

After roasting, coffee beans start to lose their freshness, aroma, and flavor. And the coffee you buy from the supermarkets just sits there for weeks before you buy it. So just imagine the kind of coffee you’re getting from those supermarkets. Buying coffee online provides both the buyer and the seller with great flexibility and a superior edge over the traditional stores.

Why should you consider buying Coffee Online?

Firstly, the online stores have a coven of buyers from around the world which makes it easier for the buyer to compare various products before buying the one that best suits his needs.

Secondly, the coffee you buy online doesn’t sit idle on a shelf for weeks before getting to you thus making sure that you always get the best quality product.

Not sure about a seller or a store? Check the reviews online. It will let you know what other people think about the seller or store and their services.

Online stores make it possible to get all sorts of coffee beans with different degree of roasting at a single place thus helping you get the perfect taste for your taste buds.

Moreover, as the online stores deliver the product at your doorstep right from the sellers, which cuts-off any middle man thus reducing the cost of the product.

Summarizing all the above points, I’d say that online stores allow you get the best quality products from around the world at a much cheaper price right at your fingertips from the comfort of your home. I can’t think of a single supermarket that can provide you with all these benefits.
