2.0 SWOT of Pizza Hut

After Few day research and observation. Let’s talk about their strength .pizza hut own a strong strength because pizza hut have built a very big and strong dynasty. Pizza hut had start their business in long time ago.it already brings into the history. Majority of the consumer know pizza hut. Because pizza hut is very popular and famous even a 3 year old buy also know pizza hut. This can know that pizza hut had built their emperior. Majority of consumer will take a burger meal in McDonald, if they want to eat fried chicken they will go to KFC. If they want to eat pizza hut they will choose to take their meal at pizza hut. They will not choose papa john or domino because they are still new for Malaysia. They are still new for our area. Because pizza hut give confidence to the consumer. The management department are making improve based on their food, price, and services. Pizza hut also have the among of customers because some customer are long term customer .Although pizza market is very large but they are still a lot of customer a loyal to pizza hut because their price are far. Pizza hut also have a good reputation among customer. This is the reason that they can survive until this day. A business not only need to have good service, far prices and good quality of food, it also need to have a good reputation so that consumer will come back again.

Next, let’s talk about their weaknesses. KFC have a lot of strength but their weakness also not less. The serious weakness of pizza hut is the consumer are very confuses about pizza hut is a fast food restaurant, western restaurant, or a Japanese restaurant. Because fast food defines as prepare quickly and easily that are sold by restaurant. You can finish you meal in short time. Everyone knows pizza hut are selling pizza even a kid also know this fact but in the true story pizza hut are not only selling pizza. They also sell tempura this is a Japanese food, they going to come out a thai tuna roll this is a food from Thailand. They also selling steak or lamb chop that are from western country and lastly the new menu are appear rice, and this rice are not made with cheese it made assam. As a consumer they are really confuse to know that this is a remix restaurant or western restaurant or pizza restaurant. Because they keep come some product that is not related to pizza. I can sure in few year time it will come out burger.it will be a very scary phenomena because how could a restaurant that are name pizza hut but can come out the product that are not related to pizza hut. Pizza hut are afraid of their market sharewill decrease so that they keep come out some product that are no related to pizza. Every restaurant have their specific food. Pizza hut are good in pizza, they can’t good in fried chicken or burger. pizza hut R&D department have to think and do research for pizza only. If they do research to fried chicken or burger. I think majority of the consumer need pizza hut change their company to remix restaurant. Second weaknesses of this restaurant are their delivery service. We know to be punctual since standard one but pizza hut delivery service are not punctual at all. Because of this situation it will bring down the image and less people will choose pizza hut. The consumer will prefer call domino pizza. Because if they are late for the delivery their company will give some free coupon to you. Pizza hut should think back and correct their mistake so that their market share won’t decrease.

Third.Opportunities. They has lot opportunities. Pizza hut are mostly supply or sell their product to teenager or young boy. Because most of the young man and ladies like fast food the most.so pizza hut can give some reward or bonus to them long term support consumer.so that they will come back again. Pizza hut also can target to old man. Because most of them will bring their grandchildren to pizza hut. Most of the kid will call their grandparent to bring them to fast food restaurant.

Consumer need are can’t fulfil, so pizza hut management should come out more product to attract consumer.so that they can fulfil customer demand. Because of good reputation pizza hut already have around 34,000 branch of restaurant. This result is from reputation. Pizza hut also have to buy or get new technology so that they can use this technology to made and produce more pizza to supply to the consumer it can fulfil their demand and needs.in 2000 century technology bring a lot of convenience to human. Pizza hut should use this technology to make nice pizza to consumer. Although now pizza huts is the 1st place in market share but other pizza company also improving. Pizza hut should improve more if not they will be forfeit by the market.

Forth, threat. In Ipoh have a lot of fast food restaurant. That not only has pizza hut .that also have McDonald, KFC, Domino pizza, papa john, Kenny Roggers and etc. Although the market is very large but the economy is very low so that so everyone can afford to get a meal from fast food restaurant.one set of pizza hut meal cost RM 10++ for a person. Majority of them choose to cook at home because the cost is very low. Second threat to pizza hut is set up a new regulation. If the pizza hut management set up a policy that set up a new price, decrease the size of the food.it also will affect pizza hut. Third threat of pizza hut is shifts in consumer taste away from the firm’s product. A long term consumer will shift their taste if a new pizza company had set up. Because will may be bored pizza hut they will try to eat other company pizza hut.

Conclusion of the question:

Lastly, although pizza hut have a lot competitor but they still can be the leader of pizza. Because pizza huts have a lot of advantages. Pizza hut always provide service that other pizza company that can do it. pizza hut should correct their weakness and keep improve their strength so that they can always be the leader of the pizza and get 1st in market share This is the reason why pizza hut are the 1st place among other pizza company. Because they have a good reputation, long history for their background and good brand name.it will bring a lot of profit to pizza hut because this company had given a lot good work.

Market share

In my area market share of this pizza hut restaurant is occupied 30% between Domino pizza, McDonald, KFC, and Burger King. Because most of the consumer like to eat pizza hut. Everyday pizza hut also have among of customer. They have really big market share in my area. Because they always produce a lot of new product to fulfil different consumer demand. If the market share increase so that they can earn more and can open my restaurant all around the world. Pizza hut restaurant are the top brand fast food restaurant among all that other pizza hut company.
