...products 2.0 CASE SUMMARY The case is about three companies with 90% of the market share control the carbonated soft drink industry in the United States. These companies include in order of market share size, Coca-Cola, Pepsi Co, and Dr. Pepper/7Up. These three companies also represent the top ten selling brands in the United States market. In the United States, people consume more carbonated drinks than tap water. Research has shown that the average American drinks about 53 gallons of soft drinks per year. However, soft drink consumption has declined over the past few years (Kerin & Peterson, 2004). The soft drink industry has three major participants in the production and distribution; concentrate producers, bottlers, and retail outlets. Concentrate producers are responsible for consumer advertising and promotion programs, product development and planning and market research. The bottler’s responsibility is to set up local and retail trade promotions. Among this is selling and servicing retail outlets, placements and maintenance of advertisements, and the restocking of retailer’s shelves and vending machines. Competition in the soft drink industry is mostly relevant among the top three companies; Coca-cola, Pepsi-Cola, and Dr. Pepper/Seven Up. Each of these companies offers a product similar to Squirt, but each has their own variation. 3.0 PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION 3.1 Primary The market targeting and product positioning......

...Snapple Melissa Wells Rasmussen College Customer Service Snapple The company I chose for my project is the Dr Pepper Snapple Group but more specifically the Snapple division. The entire company has over 19,000 employees across North America. They have more than 50 brands and hundreds of different flavors. On May 07, 2008 DPS became a stand-alone company. They make several popular name brands. Some include: Country Time Lemonade, Crush, Deja Blue water, Diet Rite, Hawaiian Punch, 7up, Canada Dry, and A&W Rootbeer. The soda known as Dr Pepper was invented in 1885 by Charles Alderton, a young pharmacist (Dr Pepper Snapple Group [DPS], 2012). (I thought this was awesome when I read it!!) I chose Snapple because I really enjoy their products and wanted to learn more about them. The Snapple Company started in Greenwich Village, New York in 1972. Long-time friends Leonard Marsh, Hyman Golden and Arnold Greenburg started the company together. They first began by selling fruit drinks to stores under the name Unadulterated Food Corporation. The later came up with the name Snapple from an apple soda that was part of the original product line. They believed the soda had a great snappy apple taste. In 1987, the first Snapple tea was created. Presently, Snapple makes more than 50 varieties of drinks. When most people think of Snapple, they think of children’s’ drinks. This is not true. Snapple makes a wide variety of drinks that can be suited to anyone’s desires. Their......

...BUAD 6300 University of Toledo Dr. Michael L. Mallin Spring 2011 Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Inc Energy Beverages Meagan Frances Ayers Strategic Issues Currently, energy beverages (excluding coffee) in 2006 were the fourth largest nonalcoholic beverage category in the United States after soft drinks, sports drinks, and bottled water. While Dr Pepper Snapple is a major competitor within the flavored carbonated soft drink (CSD) market as well as the non-CSD market, they are only taking part in a small segment of the non-CSD market. The company currently sells ready-to-drink tea, juice, juice drinks, and mixer categories. However, none of these segments are of the top four categories specified above. Therefore, they are missing out on a huge market/profit opportunity. It would be in Dr Pepper Snapple’s best interest to expand their portfolio to energy beverages which are the fourth largest nonalcoholic beverage market. Analysis and Evaluation of Entering the Energy Beverage Market Nature of the Industry, Market, and Buyer Behavior The energy beverage market is expected to grow through 2011.

Dr. Pepper

...“Friendly Pepper Upper”, “Always One of a Kind”, and “Just What the Doctor Ordered”. Being the oldest major manufactured soft drink in America (History of Dr Pepper), Dr Pepper is all of those past slogans, and more. It's the greatest soft drink on the planet, and it will stand the test of time. Dr Pepper has come a long way from Morrison's Old Corner Drug Store in Waco, Texas back in 1885. According to the Dr Pepper Museum website, under “History of Dr Pepper”, the inventor was Charles Alderton, who was a young pharmacist working in the drug store. In his spare time, he had a hobby of mixing carbonated beverages for customers. Apparently, he loved the smell of the drug store so much, with all the fruit flavored smells in the air, that he wanted to create a carbonated drink that captured the scent of the store. After a few tests, Alderton finally became satisfied with his flavor, and offered a sample to his boss, Wade Morrison, who loved it. Alderton soon became confident enough to offer his new drink to his customers, who, in return, offered positive feedback. Dr Pepper officially became a soft drink on December 1, 1885 (History of Dr Pepper). While Morrison is credited as given Dr Pepper the name, the meaning behind the name remains a mystery with a lot of theories. One theory is that Morrison named the drink after his friend, Dr. Charles T. Pepper. There is a legend that Morrison was in love with Pepper's daughter, and that Morrison named the beverage after......

Dr. Pepper Snapple Group

...Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, Inc.-Energy Beverages Teshia McSwain Columbia Southern Introduction Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, Inc.-Energy Beverages initiated its triumph in business back in 1983 offering some of the most well-known beverages. Like any other businesses, this company has extreme competitors including Coca Cola and Pepsi, among others. However, the company faces challenges with an absence for energy drinks among its products (Hitt et al. 2013). Not only does Dr. Pepper Snapple Group not offer any energy drinks in their product offering; but they are a late adopter into the business. In addition, some of the other challenges Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, Inc. face include competition by major companies like Redbull, Coca Cola’s “Full Throttle”, and Pepsi’s “Amp Energy” among others. Another major threat is the pricing competition that tends to lower the company’s profits. Brand loyalty may be a major hindrance for this company, although their strategy in market entrance will determine their success. Another factor that will hinder Dr. Pepper Snapple group is the lack of as global presence like its competitors. A study by Smith (2013) asserts that the energy beverage market is a growing market because it is the 4th largest nonalcoholic beverage category and the fastest growing one after the carbonated soft drinks and sports drinks among others. Further study shows that 2001-2006 the total energy beverage retail sales increased to 42.5% annual rate with a......

...Pepper Seed DNA Extraction Biochem lab: CHE 452L marisol gomez Pepper Seed DNA Extraction Biochem lab: CHE 452L marisol gomez 2015 2015 INTRODUCTION The jalapeno is a member of the capsicum family, along with many other peppers. The usual methods for characterization of different pepper species are based on their morphological and physiological traits, however this many not always be enough. For peppers, their traits are influenced by things like their genotype or their specific environment. Genomic markers can allow for a more direct comparison of closely related individuals (Ansari and Khan, 2012). In our case we focus on DNA extraction. The two basic parts of a DNA extraction procedure include the breaking of the cell walls to expose the DNA and the use of enzymes to remove contaminants. The DNA is analyzed for purity by taking the absorbance. The pure DNA is then visualized by gel electrophoresis. The DNA extraction of plant seeds is difficult because of their cell wall. The method used to break the cell wall includes grinding the seeds with liquid nitrogen. The addition of DNAzol is used to isolate genomic DNA (Chomczynski et al. 1997). Restriction enzymes are necessary to fragment patterns of the DNA and in turn making it easier to analyze the DNA through gel electrophoresis. BACKGROUND The purpose of our experiment is to extract the DNA from pepper seeds to be able to compare and contrast the similarities in their DNA. The extraction of DNA from a plant...

...Dr pepper/Seven Up, Inc. Jeonghwan Bae D10372714 1. Nowadays, the soft drink is highly important part of people’s beverage. I think that I can characterize the carbonated soft drink like this, most innovate beverage until now. Also the carbonated soft drinks have incredibly addictive like drugs or cigarette. I also love coke and always drink when I eat the food. The three companies; Coca-Cola, Pepsi-Cola, Dr Pepper/Seven Up companies hold most of percentage which people drink carbonated soft beverage. Coca-Cola is most famous and favorite company with 44.1% market share and Pepsi-Cola have 31.4%, Dr Pepper/Seven Up Company have 14.7% in 2000. 2. The Squirt brand don’t have many market share percent in U.S. Because Coca-Cola and Pepsi-Cola or other big companies have more customer preferences. However, relate with fruits carbonated drinks, the Squirt company is number 1 brand in the U.S. Squirt have high market share with carbonated grapefruit soft drink brand. 3. The pros of continuing the present market targeting and positioning is that people might think like “this company have consistency”. The Squirt don’t have bad image from customers, so it would be fine. The cons of continuing the present strategy is that company can’t grow up in the future, because it doesn’t have any change or developing for customer and it will make the same market share.
