To add value to McCafe, takeover Dunking Donuts to compete with Starbucks

Dunkin’ Donuts is an international doughnut and coffee retailer founded in 1950 by William Rosenberg in Quincy, Massachusetts;[1] it is now headquartered in Canton. While the company originally focused on doughnuts and other baked goods, over half of its business today is in coffee sales, making it more of a competitor to Starbucks than to more traditional competitors such as Krispy Kreme.[3]
The company has opened more than 10,000 locations in 32 countries worldwide [3], which include more than 6,700 Dunkin’ Donuts locations throughout the United States and more than 3000 international locations.[4] This figure compares with the 17,009 stores of coffee chain Starbucks, whose baked goods are usually prepared out of shop. Nearly all of Dunkin’ Donuts locations are franchisee owned and operated.[5] Only 75 franchisees exist west of the Mississippi River, mostly in Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, and Texas.[6] Within their Northeast home base, however, Dunkin’ Donuts is particularly dominant and can be found in many gas stations, supermarkets, mall and airport food courts, and Walmart stores across the region.
Dunkin’ Donuts, along with Baskin-Robbins, is co-owned by Dunkin’ Brands Inc. (previously known as Allied Domecq Quick Service Restaurants, when it was a part of Allied Domecq). Dunkin’ Brands used to own the Togo’s chain, but sold this in late 2007 to a private equity firm. Dunkin’ Brands was owned by French beverage company Pernod Ricard S.A. after it purchased Allied Domecq. They reached an agreement in December 2005 to sell the brand to a consortium of three private-equity firms, Bain Capital Partners, the Carlyle Group and Thomas H. Lee Partners.

In the United States, Dunkin’ Donuts is sometimes paired with Baskin-Robbins ice cream shops. While such locations usually have two counters set up for each chain (much like the Wendy’s/Tim Hortons co-branded locations), depending on business that day, both products can be bought at the same counter (usually the Dunkin’ counter), much like the Yum! Brands stores.
The company’s largest competitors include Krispy Kreme donuts and Starbucks, as well as small locally owned donut shops. In Canada and parts of the northern United States, Tim Hortons is a major competitor. In Colombia Donut Factory had been its local rival, although Dunkin’ still is preferred and has encouraged this desire by adapting their donut selection to local tastes.[7] Mister Donut had been its largest competitor in the United States before the company was bought by Dunkin’ Donuts’ parent company. The Mister Donut stores were rebranded as Dunkin’ Donuts. Dunkin still controls the trademark rights to the Mister Donut trademark through various new and amended older trademark registrations with the USPTO.
————————————————————————
First advantage, ready market worldwide, second, branding where McCafe can be side by side Dunking Donut, extended markets for both products where automatically I can list McCafe with as big a capitalisation as Starbucks after that. Whatever ROI you invest will be doubled. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity where the returns are guaranteed, you will not lose money.
You make money then you want you can reward me, I actually do not need anything in return. Once I complete my own projects I will worth more than Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook combined.

MacDonald’s US sales falter but Asia increases rapidly, a change of President

McDonald’s Corp. (MCD), the world’s largest restaurant company by sales, replaced the president of its U.S. division amid falling same-store sales.

Jan Fields, once considered a potential chief executive, is leaving after spending 35 of her 57 years at McDonald’s. Jeff Stratton, 57, now global chief restaurant officer, takes responsibility for the division’s 14,000 locations from Fields on Dec. 1, the Oak Brook, Illinois-based company said today in a statement.

Jeff Stratton, global chief restaurant Officer of McDonald’s Corp. will succeed Jan Fields as president of McDonald’s USA, effective Dec. 1. Source: McDonald’s Corp. via BloombergFields’s abrupt departure comes as McDonald’s struggles in its home market, which generates almost a third of global revenue. Last month sales at U.S. restaurants sank 2.2 percent, driving the first monthly worldwide sales drop in nine years. Fields has tried to attract more diners as rivals step up promotions and introduce new menu items. McDonald’s hasn’t had a big hit since McCafe smoothies and frappes debuted in 2010.

Fields’s departure may be linked to Don Thompson’s ascension as CEO in July, said John Gordon, the principal at restaurant adviser Pacific Management Consulting Group inSan Diego. “For a company as inbred as McDonald’s, the changeover of CEOs is a big deal.”

Given Thompson’s engineering background, he may be more involved in the details, he said. Jim Skinner, the previous McDonald’s CEO, “may have been a little more hands off.”

Burger King

As McDonald’s faltered, Burger King Worldwide Inc. (BKW)stepped up its game by selling its own versions of McDonald’s favorites — smoothies, salads, snack wraps and soft-serve ice cream. The Miami-based chain has even introduced gingerbread flavored shakes and sundaes for the holidays.Yum! Brands Inc. (YUM)’s Taco Bell restaurant has recently started selling Doritos Locos tacos and more expensive items under its Cantina Bell line, which are expected to help 2013 same-stores sales, Chief Financial Officer Pat Grismer said in October.

“McDonald’s is in a little bit of a new product lull,” Gordon said. “Everybody is kind of nipping at their heels.”

Fields was promoted to president of the U.S. division from operations chief in January 2010. During her tenure she called for improved food and product safety, posted calorie counts on menu boards, revamped Happy Meals for kids and tested healthier items, such as egg-white breakfast sandwiches. McDonald’s also began running ads touting the provenance of its beef and potatoes.

Fundamental Shift

“Our ultimate success will require a fundamental shift in how we approach brand trust and how we incorporate these efforts in to everything we do,” Fields wrote in an e-mail to store owners last year.

Fields earned $2.15 million last year at McDonald’s, which included a base salary of about $593,000. In 2010, she also made about $2.15 million.

Stratton’s career at McDonald’s spans more than 40 years. He started as a restaurant crew member in Detroit and became president of the company’s west division in 2001. As president of McDonald’s USA, he will report to Chief Operating Officer Tim Fenton.

U.S. revenue growth has for the past two years lagged that of its international segments. In 2011, domestic revenue increased 5.1 percent, compared with 14 percent in Europe and 19 percent in Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

“The obvious difference between now and 12 or 15 months ago is the U.S. business is a lot less dominant,” Sara Senatore, an analyst with Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. in New York, said today in a telephone interview. “The U.S. has to work in order for McDonald’s to work because it is still the single biggest contributor to the profit pool.”

McDonald’s fell 0.7 percent to $84.05 at the close in New York. The shares have slid 16 percent this year.

Double digit growth projections for Asia from 19 percent to 38 percent within a span of two years, who is afraid of competition? I will find the niche and will stay away from destructive competition, increasing QC and control over supply chains with innovations, technology with the best service. A non-disclosure agreement is all I ask as no-one has access to my trade secrets. I can easily transfer knowledge how to run a Macdonald’s restuarant perfectly for the highest ROI, marketing skills are only reserved for top management, please do not ask me about my inventions, everybody knows my ultimate goals. I control all information and will only train everyone and release everything when I get where I need to go. Can you read between the lines? Profits is eroded from writeoff from property development charges…..

SINGAPORE – Fraser and Neave (F&N) has posted a 12 per cent decline in revenue to $5.57 billion for the year ending September 30.

Net profit fell 6.9 per cent to $835.6 million year-on-year.

When fair value adjustment and exceptionals are excluded, net profit saw a drop of 26.5 per cent to $472.3 million.

Lower profit was attributed to lower recognition of development property earnings as a result of a change in accounting standards and one-off gains in the financial year of 2011 not repeated this year.

Boosted by higher fair value gains from year-end revaluation of investment properties, profit after tax for the full year stood at $1.01 billion, surpassing the billion-dollar mark for the second year in a row.

Directors have recommended a final dividend of 12 cents per share. Together with the interim dividend of six cents, this brings the total dividend for the year to 18 cents, which is the same as last year.

Following the divestment of APB/APIPL interests, the Board is exploring all options available to it to distribute a portion of the sale proceeds to Shareholders, after F&N is no longer the subject of a takeover offer.

This final dividend, if approved by shareholders, will be paid on 21 February next year.

MacDonalds here I come

How I will takeover MacDonalds
1)TCC assets + Kirin =100% control of F & N
2)Merge with Lifestyle Brands(Franchise) easily worth more than $20 per share
3)Next target MacDonald’s South East Asia taking control almost 40% of the entire US shares.
4)Spinoff McCafe to take total control of 100% MacDonald’s shares.
 
With Lifestyle Brands I would have great synergies with McDonalds and with different restuarants concepts I could interchange and blend and maximise profits in anyway I want. I can easily takeover Dunking Donuts and Hotel81/Frangrance Hotel later. I have no interest in owning any shares in MacDonalds, just to create jobs for many people as this is a good investment with long term profit goals, and to prove to everyone what I am capable of.

Kirin to sell entire stake in Singapore’s F&N

Japanese beverage giant Kirin said Friday it will sell its entire 15 percent stake in Singapore’s Fraser and Neave (F&N) to a Thai tycoon on the verge of taking full control of the conglomerate.
Tokyo-based Kirin said in a statement on its website it will earn Sg$2.03 billion ($1.64 billion) from the sale of its 14.76 percent F&N stake to TCC Assets, a firm controlled by Thai billionaire Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi.
TCC Assets emerged the sole bidder for F&N after its Indonesian rival, Overseas Union Enterprise (OUE), last month pulled out of a rare auction called to resolve a protracted battle for the Singapore firm.
Kirin had backed OUE’s offer with an eye on acquiring F&N’s food and beverage business if the Indonesian bid had been successful.
“With the recent major change in F&N’s ownership structure, weighted heavily to TCC, Kirin has determined that it would be difficult to implement its integrated beverages strategy in Southeast Asia with F&N as Kirin’s core partner,” the statement read.
“Accordingly (Kirin) has decided to sell Kirin’s shares in F&N,” it added.
With the sale, Charoen will move closer to taking full control of beverage, property and publishing conglomerate F&N after gaining majority ownership of over 50 percent on Wednesday.
The sale is expected to be completed “no later than February 14,” Kirin said in its statement.
TCC Assets, which has been steadily snapping up F&N shares at the final offer price of Sg$9.55 apiece, currently owns 54.01 percent of the company without the Kirin stake.
The rest of F&N’s shareholders have until February 18 to accept the offer from TCC Assets.
Singapore’s Straits Times newspaper has said TCC’s takeover, if successful, will be the biggest in the city-state’s corporate history.
F&N became a takeover target after it sold off its most prized asset, Tiger Beer maker Asia Pacific Breweries, to Dutch giant Heineken in September.
It still has lucrative beverage, property and publishing operations.
