  2. 2. Chai Point Background  Amuleek Singh Bijral founder of the Chai Point. He‟s a graduate of the Harvard Business School. Mr Singh said that the idea of becoming an entrepreneur hit him while pursuing MBA at Harvard University. However, he made his decision to open outlets that served “chai” in a pristine clean environment, after he returned to India and this decision was based on facts.  He said “India runs and lives on tea and it is second to China in terms of production and the consumption is overreaching production and yet, there was no brand around „chai'. This really surprised me and I saw a business opportunity here. So, I decided to build one (brand in chai),”

  10. 10. Problem Statement  Gap Analysis between goal and achievement: - Tea‟s popularity in Indian homes, in fact, acts against its image. - - - Coffee is considered a lifestyle statement, while tea is ordinary. It‟s easy to convince a consumer to spend upward of Rs80 for a cup of coffee. However, even Rs30-40 for a cup of tea is considered expensive. On the same years other competitors are also emerging. India's third largest packaged teamaker, Wagh Bakri opened its tea lounge in suburban Mumbai. "The response we have received is fantastic,“ Goodricke too has invested in tea bars. “They have opened tea bars in Bhopal and Jaipur recently. Earlier this year Starbucks paid $650 mn to take over the tea company, Teavana. Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz announced that apart from introducing Teavana products at their own outlets, the company would open standalone Teavana stores to “do for tea what it [Starbucks] did for coffee”.
  11. 11. Problem Statement  Primary Problem: There are several reasons for this image. " At one level, tea is something you drink daily at home. At the same time, it's also a seen as a connoisseur drink," says the marketing head of a multinational foods company. Moreover, unlike coffee, there are very few tea lounges or bars that are devoted to a culture of tea.  Secondary Problem: As of today, there are over 1,870 cafes in the country. In comparison, there are just 41 tea lounges cha bars in India, pointing out that the likes of Barista, Cafe Coffee Day have done a great job of popularising coffee consumption in India. Now, Starbucks is coming.
  12. 12. Problem Solutions  Primary Solution : Nobody in office takes a cappuccino break. They take a chai break. Office-goers are not looking for a lounge,” s “outlets should be in areas with lots of offices colleges around.  Alternative Solution : Introducing new flavours required
  13. 13. Conclusion It's ironic that a good cup of coffee is easier to find than a good cup of chai in a tea-drinking nation like India. Tea chains attract a miniscule crowd compared to coffee chains.
  14. 14. Recommendations  Decision : The chai Point innovation is what drives them forward. The decision to new plans should be taken carefully which should not affect negative to the current growth.  Action Plan for Implementation: They must first to introduce customers to various kinds of teas. Depends on the area the tea rates must be different. Example If it is near colleges the rates must be less. If the surrounding of the outlet requires internet. There must be wifi or café should be introduced. More quality snacks or wraps should be introduced.
