Topic
Your client Dorothy Oz is concerned about the growing obesity rates in Australia and the impact that consumption of fast food has on it.
Dorothy would like to explore establishing a new fast food chain in Australia, but one that focuses on providing ONLY healthy, natural and chemical free food. She would also like her business to be social responsible, and is interested in any opportunities that you see in this area for her to take up. She wants her chain to be seen as a viable alternative to ‘unhealthy’ KFC, McDonalds and similar chains that have multiple outlets.HND Assignment Help

1. Discuss the buyer behavior associated with fast food consumption.
2. Analyse the Microenvironment. Who are relevant publics? Who are suppliers? Identify who the competitors would be – Briefly summarise the likely competitors, what they offer and who they seem to target.
3. Analyse the Macroenvironment. What are the society-wide influences on fast food? Are there demographic, economic, natural, technological, political, or cultural trends that have, or will, affect fast food consumption?
Hint: The three topics above need you to do some market analysis, using secondary sources. Take the time to find good sources.

• Your recommended target market. Don’t forget to describe how you segmented the market and how you selected the target market
