3. Solve the Dilemma: Planning for Pizza

McKing Corporation operates fast food restaurants in 50 states. It wanted to diversify into selling pizzas. After six months of testing, it introduced three 16-inch pizzas; cheese, pepperoni and deluxe. After all the time and money spent planning, advertising and training employees, one problem arose. The drive-thru windows were not wide enough to allow a 16-inch pizza box to pass through.

  • What mistake did McKing make in approaching the introduction of pizza?
  • How could this product introduction have been coordinated to avoid the problems that were encountered?
