Question 7.3
a) As per the given scenario, it can be determined that H&H is a small pizza shop located in a place which is su
ounded by a couple of colleges. In such a situation, the company should opt the following business strategy in order to strengthen the business model.
Pricing strategy: As the company is located in an area which is su
ounded by colleges, therefore, there must be other pizza shops. In such a situation, the company must use a competitive pricing strategy so that customers prefer H&H over any other pizza shops.
Product strategy: Product differentiation strategy must be used by the company in order to maintain uniqueness of the Pizza shop.
