Question 7.3
a) H&H pizza being a small pizza centre in the midst of the couple of colleges, it needed to implement some of the strategies in order to make its sales shine. First, Peter needed to look into the matter of the latest choices and the liking of the college students and then make its production of the pizza suiting to their tastes. Second, upgrade dating the technologies. In order to handle the rush of the order of the pizza of the college students, Peter needed to a
ange some of the machines, which can do the heating, baking and boiling at high speed (Kahre et al., 2017). Third is a

It may be an appreciable factor, but every time low costs can stand to lose credibility among consumers, or everyday low prices are not comparable to the pricing found on the Internet (Buvik & Andersen, 2016). Companies may not have the sufficient margins of the profit to the offer of occasional promotional discounts. Sales may go down, as the customers will believe that the products will not ca
