  • Staging

    • Expansion speed reflects the speed of sales, with joint ventures and licensing as a potential accelerant

    • Sequence impacted by likely strong markets (urban areas) and geography

  • Economic Logic

    • Premium prices compared to major computer lines due to unmatched features

    • Lower cost compared to other premium Home Theater PC developers

  • Most people are already familiar with McDonald’s Arenas, Differentiations, and Staging.

  • McDonald’s has made money by using the other two elements to their maximum advantage: Vehicles and Economic Logic.

  • One word: FRANCHISING

  • Franchising is a highly adaptable method for rapid expansion.

  • A Franchisor creates a system, which they sell to a Franchisee for a Franchise Fee and a percentage of operating profits.

  • This model differs many start up costs to the Franchisee.

  • By finding many Franchisees, a Franchisor can roll their system out into many markets simultaneously with a minimal cost.

McDonald’s Economic Logic

  • Economies of Scale play into profit.

  • The key, however, is the vehicle.

  • Franchisors make money through attracting the most Franchisees and giving them a successful system.

  • McDonald’s made the most of franchising to expand as fast a possible, and because the system was solid, the franchises made money.
