Five Guys Burgers and Fries Analysis Vernell Burnett BUS 330 Principles of Marketing Instructor Tracy Foote July 24, 2017 Fries Guys Marketing Brand Five Guys have been voted best burger and fries in the U.S. Five Guys now have over 1,500 restaurants around the world and still counting. There are over 250.000 thousand ways to order a burger (Burke, M. 2012). Five Guys is fundamental in the 1980’s only selling burgers and fries. They started adding more items to their menu like grill cheese, veggie sandwiches, and Hebrew Hot Dogs. Their location has no drive-thru with their kitchen is open to the public to watch while cooking is in the process (Burke, M. 2012). Five Guys opened their first location in Arlington VA in 1986. The started off with just Jerry the dad and his five son’s Jim, Matt, Chad, and Tyler. In 2001 they finally perused the Murrell to invest their business with franchisees. The first location open in the United Kingdom in 2012 afterward they open another in Berkshire England. They rapidly expanded their operation across U.S. with Canada by opening over 1000 location. Revenue over 12.3 million dollars with over 259 thousand plus employee and growing working to improve the operation. The main office is in Arlington VA which overlooking the Occoquan and Potomac Rivers they represent the corporate brand. The brand was design without marketing to bring customers in by word of mouth and employee uniforms that describes the company name (Vein, J. 2014, May 19). The operation was design as a fine casual dine-in not a fast food restaurants. Five design their establishment so that it would be separated from Smash Burger and In and Out burgers, which have similar characters that are also known for their burgers and fries. SWOT Analysis: Strengths Strengths: 1. Over 1500 hundred location in Canada, France, Ireland, Kuwait, Saudi Arabas, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and the United States reaching an revenue of 244.4 million. Society has proven that the establishment is something worth working for. 2. Five Guys peanuts are given out freely to all customer that eat in the establishment 3. Focus on customer feedback with survey and 3rd party inspection auditor for up keep of brand standard. 4. Give employee ownership and room for advancement with ongoing training. Weakness: 1. Menu is limited to only a few item to choose from. 2. The oil Five Guys uses peanut oil which can cause an allergic allergy for the public. 3. Five Guys need add healthier sandwiches to their menu to increase more traffic to the operation. Opportunities: 1. Five Guys need add more activities for children of all ages. 2. Using Uber drivers to deliver to the home. 3. Catering to business, after school function, and churches. 4. Investing in a different cooking oil instead of peanut oil. Threats: 1. Five Guys Burgers are not healthy for society. 2. Competition: Water burger, Smash burger, and In-N-Out 3. Society economy growth 4. Cross contamination of the cattle can become a problem with the beef. Based on the SWOT analysis seems like the marking is the biggest opportunity. All four analysis if carefully thought out can bring more revenue to the bottom line and grow the business at the same time. Five Guys decided not to market in society they rather spend that budget on their employees and management team. Been able to sell a minimum of items on their menu can be a benefit and a blockage with competitors that sales the same item to society this can become a threat. Having a third party involve keep structure with the brand and helps promote safety for society with protecting the brand. Given employee the ownership and offer advancement is the way to show that it’s not all about the revenue but what helps push more revenue. Opening more stores in U.S and out of states help promote the brand and support more traffic from the society (Management Insight, 2010). Reference Burke, M. (2012).

BUS 330 Principles of Marketing
Institution name

The Passy Foundation
The best entertainment company: The Passy Foundation
Company Description
This is an entertainment company that I built to offer entertainment to our students. I am
currently a student and as we all know with age comes great anxiety and the urge to have fun. I,
therefore, sat down and realized that we are students are being exploited by this big company
which takes advantage of our innocence. That made me comes up with my own entertainment
company which will offer the same services as the big companies but at a cheap and affordable
price to the students. Since my market was ready, this business was going to be a success.
Core Products

never stopped.
Key Current Competitors
In business, it is advisable that you always know your competitors. I was not left behind.
I researched on who may run me out of business and came up with the success companies and
groups such as May Bach Music, YMCMB and the rest who are well established in the market

The Passy Foundation
