VIDEO CASE: WHERE TO PLACE HARD ROCK’S NEXT CAFE

We suggest you follow these steps:

1. Read the case study that follows.

2. View the video tour of Hard Rock that addresses this issue.

3. If you wish to have further background, reread the material in this chapter of the
text.

4. Answer the questions about the case, and if your instructor wishes, e-mail your
answers to him or her.

Some people would say that Oliver Munday, Hard Rock’s vice president for cafe
development, has the best job in the world. Travel the world to pick a country for Hard
Rock’s next cafe, select a city, and find the ideal site. It’s true that selecting a site
involves lots of incognito walking around, visiting nice restaurants, and drinking in
bars. But that is not where Mr. Munday’s work begins, nor where it ends. At the front
end, selecting the country and city first involves a great deal of research. At the back
end, Munday not only picks the final site and negotiates the deal, but then works with
architects and planners and stays with the project through the opening and first year’s
sales.

Munday is currently looking heavily into global expansion in Europe, Latin America,
and Asia. “We’ve got to look at political risk, currency, and social norms—how does
our brand fit into the country,” he says. Once the country is selected, Munday focuses
on the region and city. His research checklist is extensive.

Hard Rock’s Standard Market Report (for off-shore sites)

A. Demographics (local, city, region, SMSA), with trend analysis

 1. Population of area

 2. Economic indicators

B. Visitor market, with trend analysis

 1. Tourists/business visitors

 2. Hotels

 3. Convention center

 4. Entertainment

 5. Sports
6. Retail

C. Transportation

 1. Airport

   (a) age of airport,

   (b) no. of passengers

   (c) airlines

   (d) direct flights

   (e) hubs

 2. Rail

 3. Road

 4. Sea/river

D. Restaurants and nightclubs (a selection in key target market areas)

E. Political risk

F. Real estate market

G. Hard Rock Cafe comparable market analysis

Site location now tends to focus on the tremendous resurgence of “city centers,”
where nightlife tends to concentrate. That’s what Munday selected in Moscow and
Bogota, although in both locations he chose to find a local partner and franchise the
operation. In these two political environments, “Hard Rock wouldn’t dream of
operating by ourselves,” says Munday. The location decision also is at least a10-to-15-
year commitment by Hard Rock, which employs tools such as break-even analysis to
help decide whether to purchase land and build, or to remodel an existing facility.
Discussion Questions

1. From Munday’s standard market report checklist, select any other four categories,
such as population (A1), hotels (B2), or restaurants/nightclubs (D), and provide three
subcategories that should be evaluated. (See item C1 (airport) for a guide.)

2. Which is the highest rated of the four European cities under consideration, using the
table above?

3. Why does Hard Rock put such serious effort into its location analysis?

4. Under what conditions do you think Hard Rock prefers to franchise a cafe?

Video Case 4

  • 1. VIDEO CASE: WHERE TO PLACE HARD ROCK’S NEXT CAFE We suggest you follow these steps: 1. Read the case study that follows. 2. View the video tour of Hard Rock that addresses this issue. 3. If you wish to have further background, reread the material in this chapter of the text. 4. Answer the questions about the case, and if your instructor wishes, e-mail your answers to him or her. Some people would say that Oliver Munday, Hard Rock’s vice president for cafe development, has the best job in the world. Travel the world to pick a country for Hard Rock’s next cafe, select a city, and find the ideal site. It’s true that selecting a site involves lots of incognito walking around, visiting nice restaurants, and drinking in bars. But that is not where Mr. Munday’s work begins, nor where it ends. At the front end, selecting the country and city first involves a great deal of research. At the back end, Munday not only picks the final site and negotiates the deal, but then works with architects and planners and stays with the project through the opening and first year’s sales. Munday is currently looking heavily into global expansion in Europe, Latin America, and Asia. “We’ve got to look at political risk, currency, and social norms—how does our brand fit into the country,” he says. Once the country is selected, Munday focuses on the region and city. His research checklist is extensive. Hard Rock’s Standard Market Report (for off-shore sites) A. Demographics (local, city, region, SMSA), with trend analysis 1. Population of area 2. Economic indicators B. Visitor market, with trend analysis 1. Tourists/business visitors 2. Hotels 3. Convention center 4. Entertainment 5. Sports
  • 2. 6. Retail C. Transportation 1. Airport (a) age of airport, (b) no. of passengers (c) airlines (d) direct flights (e) hubs 2. Rail 3. Road 4. Sea/river D. Restaurants and nightclubs (a selection in key target market areas) E. Political risk F. Real estate market G. Hard Rock Cafe comparable market analysis Site location now tends to focus on the tremendous resurgence of “city centers,” where nightlife tends to concentrate. That’s what Munday selected in Moscow and Bogota, although in both locations he chose to find a local partner and franchise the operation. In these two political environments, “Hard Rock wouldn’t dream of operating by ourselves,” says Munday. The location decision also is at least a10-to-15- year commitment by Hard Rock, which employs tools such as break-even analysis to help decide whether to purchase land and build, or to remodel an existing facility.
  • 3. Discussion Questions 1. From Munday’s standard market report checklist, select any other four categories, such as population (A1), hotels (B2), or restaurants/nightclubs (D), and provide three subcategories that should be evaluated. (See item C1 (airport) for a guide.) 2. Which is the highest rated of the four European cities under consideration, using the table above? 3. Why does Hard Rock put such serious effort into its location analysis? 4. Under what conditions do you think Hard Rock prefers to franchise a cafe?
