  4. 4. PepsiCo Introduction Pepsi was first introduced as "Brad's Drink", in New Bern, North Carolina, United States, In 1893 the pharmacy of Caleb Bradham, who made it at his drugstore where the drink was sold. It was later labeled Pepsi Cola, named after the digestive enzyme pepsin and kola nuts used in the recipe. Bradham sought to create a fountain drink that was delicious and would aid in digestion and boost energy. ( In 1903, Bradham moved the bottling of Pepsi-Cola from his drugstore to a rented warehouse. That year, Bradham sold 7,968 gallons of syrup. The next year, Pepsi was sold in six-ounce bottles, and sales increased to 19,848 gallons. In 1909, automobile race pioneer Barney Oldfield was the first celebrity to endorse Pepsi-Cola, describing it as "A bully drink...refreshing, invigorating, a fine bracer before a race." The advertising theme "Delicious and Healthful" was then used over the next two decades. In 1926, Pepsi received its first logo redesign since the original design of 1905. In 1929, the logo was changed again. In 1931, at the depth of the Great Depression, the Pepsi-Cola Company entered bankruptcy – in large part due to financial losses incurred by speculating on wildly fluctuating sugar prices as a result of World War I. Assets were sold and Roy C. Mega gel bought the Pepsi trademark. (Soda Museum) Mega gel was unsuccessful, and soon Pepsi's assets were purchased by Charles Guth, the President of Loft, Inc. Loft was a candy manufacturer with retail stores that contained soda fountains. He sought to replace Coca-Cola at his stores' fountains after Coke refused to give him a discount on syrup. Guth then had Loft's chemists reformulate the Pepsi-Cola syrup formula. On three separate occasions between 1922 and 1933, The Coca-Cola Company was offered the opportunity to purchase the Pepsi-Cola company, and it declined on each occasion. ( Mark Pendergrast 2000). From the 1930s through the late 1950s, "Pepsi-Cola Hits the Spot" was the most commonly used slogan in the days of old radio, classic motion pictures, and later television. Its jingle (conceived Prepared By: AbdulHadi 4
  5. 5. PepsiCo in the days when Pepsi cost only five cents) was used in many different forms with different lyrics. With the rise of radio, Pepsi utilized the services of a young, up-and-coming actress named Polly Bergen to promote products, oftentimes lending her singing talents to the classic "...Hits The Spot" jingle. Film actress Joan Crawford, after marrying then Pepsi-Cola President Alfred N. Steele became a spokesperson for Pepsi, appearing in commercials, television specials and televised beauty pageants on behalf of the company. Crawford also had images of the soft drink placed prominently in several of her later films. When Steele died in 1959 Crawford was appointed to the Board of Directors of Pepsi-Cola, a position she held until 1973, although she was not a board member of the larger PepsiCo, created in 1965. (Crawford,J 1959-05-07). The Buffalo Bisons, an American Hockey League team, were sponsored by Pepsi-Cola in its later years; the team adopted the beverage's red, white and blue color scheme along with a modification of the Pepsi logo (with the word "Buffalo" in place of the Pepsi-Cola wordmark). The Bisons ceased operations in 1970 (making way for the Buffalo Sabres). Through the intervening decades, there have been many different Pepsi theme songs sung on television by a variety of artists, from Joanie Summers tothe Jacksons to Britney Spears. (See Slogans) In 1975, Pepsi introduced the Pepsi Challenge marketing campaign where PepsiCo set up a blind tasting between Pepsi-Cola and rival Coca-Cola. During these blind taste tests the majority of participants picked Pepsi as the better tasting of the two soft drinks. PepsiCo took great advantage of the campaign with television commercials reporting the results to the public. ( In 1996, PepsiCo launched the highly successful Pepsi Stuff marketing strategy. By 2002, the strategy was cited by Promo Magazine as one of 16 "Ageless Wonders" that "helped redefine promotion marketing" In 2007, PepsiCo redesigned its cans for the fourteenth time, and for the first time, included more Prepared By: AbdulHadi 5
  6. 6. PepsiCo than thirty different backgrounds on each can, introducing a new background every three weeks. ( One of its background designs includes a string of repetitive numbers, "73774". This is a numerical expression from a telephone keypad of the word "Pepsi". In late 2008, Pepsi overhauled its entire brand, simultaneously introducing a new logo and a minimalist label design. The redesign was comparable to Coca-Cola's earlier simplification of its can and bottle designs. Pepsi also teamed up with YouTube to produce its first daily entertainment show called Pop tub. This show deals with pop culture, internet viral videos, and celebrity gossip. In 2009, "Bring Home the Cup" changed to "Team Up and Bring Home the Cup". The new installment of the campaign asks for team involvement and an advocate to submit content on behalf of their team for the chance to have the Stanley Cup delivered to the team's hometown by Mark Messier. Pepsi has official sponsorship deals with three of the four major North American professional sports leagues: the National Football League, National Hockey League and Major League Baseball. Pepsi also sponsors Major League Soccer. It also has the naming rights to Pepsi Center, an indoor sports facility in Denver, Colorado. In 1997, after his sponsorship with Coca-Cola ended, NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon signed a long term contract with Pepsi, and he drives with the Pepsi logos on his car with various paint schemes for about 2 races each year, usually a darker paint scheme during nighttime races. Pepsi has remained as one of his sponsors ever since. Pepsi has also sponsored the NFL Rookie of the Year award since 2002. ( Pepsi also has sponsorship deals in international cricket teams. The Pakistan cricket team is one of the teams that the brand sponsors. The team wears the Pepsi logo on the front of their test and ODI test match clothing. In July 2009, Pepsi started marketing itself as Pepsi in Argentina in response to its name being mispronounced by 25% of the population and as a way to connect more with all of the Prepared By: AbdulHadi 6
  7. 7. PepsiCo population. (Valentina.V July 15, 2009). In October 2008, Pepsi announced that it would be redesigning its logo and re-branding many of its products by early 2009. In 2009, Pepsi, Pepsi and Pepsi Max began using all lower-case fonts for name brands, and Diet Pepsi Max was re-branded as Pepsi Max. The brand's blue and red globe trademark became a series of "smiles", with the central white band arcing at different angles depending on the product until 2010. Pepsi released this logo in U.S. in late 2008, and later it was released in 2009 in Canada (the first country outside of the United States for Pepsi's new logo), Brazil, Bolivia, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador, Colombia, Argentina, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Panama, Chile, Dominican Republic, the Philippines and Australia. In the rest of the world the new logo has been released in 2010. The old logo is still used in several markets internationally, and has been phased out most recently in France and Mexico. The UK started to use the new Pepsi logo on cans in an order different from the US can. Starting in mid2010, all Pepsi variants, regular, diet, and Pepsi Max, have started using only the medium-sized "smile" Pepsi Globe. Pepsi and Pepsi Max cans and bottles in Australia now carry the localized version of the new Pepsi Logo. The word Pepsi and the logo are in the new style, while the word "Max" is still in the previous style. Pepsi Wild Cherry finally received the 2008 Pepsi design in March 2010. In 2011, for New York Fashion Week, Diet Pepsi introduced a "skinny" can that is taller and has been described as a "sassier" version of the traditional can that Pepsi says was made in "celebration of beautiful, confident women". The company's equating of "skinny" and "beautiful" and "confident" is drawing criticism from brand critics, consumers who do not back the "skinny is better" ethos, and the National Eating Disorders Association, which said that it takes offense to the can and the company's "thoughtless and irresponsible" comments. PepsiCo Inc. is a Fashion Week sponsor. This new can was made available to consumers nationwide in March. In April 2011, Pepsi announced that customers will be able to buy a complete stranger a soda at a new "social" vending machine, and even record a video that the stranger would see when they pick up the gift. In March 2012, Pepsi introduced Pepsi Next, a cola with half the calories of regular Pepsi. Prepared By: AbdulHadi 7
  8. 8. PepsiCo ( Candice.C 2012-02-23) In March 2013, Pepsi for the first time in 17 years reshaped its 20-ounce bottle, In November 2013, Pepsi issued an apology on their official Swedish Facebook page for using pictures of Cristiano Ronaldo as a voodoo doll in various scenes before the Sweden v Portugal 2014 FIFA World Cup playoff game. (Yahoo. 2013-11-21). (Facebook. 2013-11-21). PepsiCo announces plans to invest US $1 billion in China over the next four years as part of the strategy to expand in emerging markets and broaden the portfolio of locally relevant products. The original trademark application for Pepsi-Cola was filed on September 23, 1902 with registration approved on June 16, 1903. In the application's statement, Caleb Bradham describes the trademark as an "arbitrary hyphenated word "PEPSI-COLA", and indicated that the mark was in continuous use for his business since August 1, 1901. The Pepsi-Cola's description is a flavoring-syrup for soda water. The trademark expired on April 15, 1904. A second Pepsi-Cola trademark is on record with the USPTO. The application date submitted by Caleb Bradham for the second trademark is Saturday, April 15, 1905 with the successful registration date of April 15, 1906, over three years after the original date. Curiously, in this application, Caleb Bradham states that the trademark had been continuously used in his business "and those from whom title is derived since in the 1905 application the description submitted to the USPTO was for a tonic beverage. The federal status for the 1905 trademark is registered and renewed and is owned by PepsiCo, Inc. of Purchase, New York. Prepared By: AbdulHadi 8
  9. 9. PepsiCo PepsiCo Headquarters The PepsiCo headquarters are located in the neighborhood of Purchase New York, in the town of Harrison, New York. It was one of the last architectural works by Edward Durell Stone. It consists of seven three-story buildings. Each building is connected to its neighbor through a corner. The property includes the Donald M. Kendall Sculpture Gardens with 45 contemporary sculptures open to the public. Works include those of Alexander Calder, Henry Moore, and Auguste Rodin. Westchester Magazine stated "The buildings’ square blocks rise from the ground into low, inverted ziggurats, with each of the three floors having strips of dark windows; patterned pre-cast concrete panels add texture to the exterior surfaces." In 2010 the magazine ranked the building as one of the ten most beautiful buildings in Westchester County. At one time PepsiCo had its headquarters in 500 Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. In 1956 Pepsico paid $2 million for the original building. PepsiCo built the new 500 Park Avenue in 1960.[54] In 1966, Mayor of New York City John Lindsay started a private campaign to convince PepsiCo to remain in New York City. Six months later, the company announced that it was moving to 112 acres (45 ha) of the Blind Brook Polo Club in Westchester County. After PepsiCo left the Manhattan building, it became known as the Olivetti Building. Prepared By: AbdulHadi 9

  15. 15. PepsiCo Marketing Strategy STRATEGY Inside PepsiCo’s ―One For All, All For One‖ Sponsorship Strategy PepsiCo activates the New York Giants across Pepsi, Tostitos and other brands. The company this year rolled out Tostitos-branded Mexican food carts in MetLife Stadium. Food and beverage giant gains economies of scale by activating ties across multiple brands. October 21, 2013 With a portfolio that includes the NFL, MLB, the International Cricket Council and other domestic and international properties, PepsiCo, Inc. is one of the world’s top sponsors in terms of annual spending. And the food and beverage giant is placing more focus on leveraging its vast sponsorship portfolio across multiple brands. PepsiCo in 2011 added the Quaker and Tropicana brands as part of its ten-year renewal with the National Football League. The company this year added Sabra hummus and Aquafina water to the decades-old partnership. In addition, PepsiCo for the first time is activating the NFL across its full line of Pepsi products: Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Pepsi Max and Pepsi Next. PepsiCo is applying the strategy to other properties as well. The company last year added Quaker Oats and the breakfast food category to its partnership with Major League Soccer.

That includes Gatorade’s longrunning support of athletes, Quaker’s involvement with youth sports and Pepsi and Frito-Lay enhancing the fan experience through sweepstakes and other promotions that bring consumers closer to the game. ―We want to maximize our partnerships to the fullest, and the best way to do that is to bring our brands more closely together in the sports space,‖ said Jennifer Storms, PepsiCo’s senior vice president of global sports marketing. As part of the strategy, PepsiCo looks to leverage sponsorship with activation programs that support its own marketing objectives as well as those of its partners. ―We are the ultimate partner for a league, team or athlete. They have a need for partners that can help enhance the fan experience, support youth programs and other initiatives, and we can do all of that.‖ The key to the success: collaborative relationships. PepsiCo looks for properties that take a vested interest in a partnership’s success by keeping the company up to speed on new marketing initiatives and other programs where there may be a brand fit. ―It’s about sitting down with our partners, talking about where our brands authentically align and figuring out how we can create the best engagement platforms that align with each other’s goals,‖ said Storms. Brian Rolapp, COO of NFL Media, echoes that sentiment. ―As we work together we organically look to expand the relationship and bring in additional brands. That’s how sponsorship should work—you need to go in with the view of how to accomplish each other’s goals.‖ Rolapp points to Pepsi’s sponsorship of the Super Bowl half time show as an example. The sponsorship supports Pepsi’s music platform while helping the NFL extend the reach of the show. Prepared By: AbdulHadi 16
  17. 17. PepsiCo ―The half time show use to be a big platform for 12 minutes in the middle of the Super Bowl. Pepsi has made it a bigger platform that begins in September and goes past the Super Bowl.‖ PepsiCo leverages the NFL and other partnerships across three primary platforms: 360-degree consumer touch points. PepsiCo is placing more focus on engaging consumers through multiple touch points. That includes the field of play, in-stadium messaging and in-store promotions. A visual of how PepsiCo activates the NFL at retail. ―We want to reach more consumers in more places at more times than anyone else,‖ said Storms. Local market activation. Whether it’s a national, regional or local property, the ultimate goal for PepsiCo is to gain local activation platforms. That includes retail promotions and other programs tailored to the local market. ―We want to work with our retailers to create uber local programs that bring our partnerships to life and drive purchase decisions.‖ Sustainable activation platforms. PepsiCo looks for partnerships that can be activated throughout the year or season across multiple brands. For example, the company activates the NFL across the combine, draft, training camp, kickoff, playoffs and Super Bowl. ―We’re not in the business of partnering with one-time sporting events. We partner with sports leagues, teams and athletes to drive sales every day of the year.‖ Prepared By: AbdulHadi 17
  18. 18. PepsiCo The Pepsi “Are You Fan Enough? Lounge Where The Rubber Meets The Road: Local Market Activation PepsiCo uses 20-plus team deals to support national NFL marketing campaigns at the local level. For example, the beverage giant is leveraging the NFL New York Giants to support Pepsi’s new ―Are You Fan Enough?‖ national campaign. The company today will roll out the ―Are You Fan Enough?‖ mobile trailer at the Giants home game against the Minnesota Vikings. The trailer features interactive games (Pepsi pong, Prepared By: AbdulHadi 18

The trailer will remain at MetLife Stadium through the 2014 Super Bowl. PepsiCo also activates league and team deals with localized in-store promotions. The promotions can be sizable in terms of size and scope: PepsiCo last year activated the Giants with a multibrand promotion that spanned an entire supermarket wall. Like its league partnership, PepsiCo has broadened its Giants sponsorship over the past few years. The company this year rolled out a Tostitos-branded Mexican food cart in MetLife Stadium. ―PepsiCo has worked with us on the customer experience from upper deck concessions down to a premium spaces and clubs. They have worked with us not just on the experience but the product presentation as part of that experience,‖ said Mike Stevens, SVP and CMO with the New York Giants. Pepsi is one of MetLife Stadium’s four cornerstone partners. In Boston, PepsiCo is supporting the ―Are You Fan Enough‖ national promotion with a localized campaign around the NFL New England Patriots. The ―Wicked Good‖ campaign includes the ―Get A Wicked Good View‖ sweeps that dangles the chance to watch player introductions from the tunnel in Gillette Stadium. PepsiCo promotes the sweeps through in-store displays. PepsiCo also touts the campaign and team affiliation on delivery trucks throughout the Northeastern U.S. ―PepsiCo understands the importance of local activation under the NFL platform better than any other partner we work with,‖ said Jonathan Kraft, president of the New England Patriots. PepsiCo also uses Gillette Stadium for meetings with trade partners. For example, the company recently hosted executives from BJ’s Wholesale Club for a 2014 planning meeting.

  23. 23. PepsiCo has 25 years marketing experience working for organisations such as Telstra and St George Bank. During his distinguished corporate career, he has worked hands-on in most specialty areas of marketing, as well as holding senior strategic roles. He has also held several adjunct teaching appointments since 1988, with the Australian Institute of Management, the University of Sydney Centre for Continuing Education and the Business School. I've just finished writing a case study for the recent launch of Pepsi Next into Australia in September 2012. No doubt you've probably been touched by some aspect of their Australian launch, ranging from guitar-playing babies with inept parents, to taste-test challenges across 300 outdoor locations, to heavy in-store promotion and discounting. By way of background, Pepsi Next is best described as a mid-calorie cola beverage, consisting of a half sugar and a half artificial sweetener formula. Upon first consideration you would think that this new product would find itself in no-man's land as it violates the first rule of modern marketing; appeal to a target market. And at first glance, the Pepsi Next product appears to be a good 'bad example' of how not to do this, by offering a product mid-way between the needs of two segments and probably appealing to neither very effectively. However, my first glance at the product wasn't quite accurate. According to PepsiCo, this new product has a very defined target market - lapsed cola drinkers. Since 2005 in the US, the soft drink market has been in early decline with unit volumes slightly decreasing each year. Research has identified that sales are being predominately lost to bottled water and, to a much lesser extent, to energy drinks, sports drinks and juices and teas. This shift in consumer drinking preferences isn't too much of a concern for PepsiCo across the board, being the second largest food and beverage firm in the world (behind Nestle) and boasting 22 brands that each generate over $1 billion in sales per year, including non-soft drinks brands such as Gatorade and Tropicana. However, the concern at PepsiCo is more related to their flagship brand, Pepsi itself. Only last year it lost its long-term second place in the US market, with Diet Coke sales now exceeding Pepsi. In fact, Pepsi has lost about four market share points in the last ten years in the now declining US carbonated soft drink market. Prepared By: AbdulHadi 23
  24. 24. PepsiCo Pepsi Vs. Coke: An analysis The use of soft drinks has risen manifold in the recent years, from your favorite actor to your beloved cricketer, you can see them all sporting and endorsing a soft-drink. Though we know that soft-drinks are not that good for health, still most of us take soft-drinks without any fuss. When we are talking of soft-drinks, how can not Pepsi and Coke be reminded of; Pepsi and Coca Cola are two international soft-drink giants which control most of the soft-drinks beverage business in the world. Pepsi has the following brands under its umbrella: Pepsi, Diet - Pepsi, Pepsi Max, Kurkure, Tropicana, Gatorade, Mountain Dew, Slice, Quaker, Aliva, Aquafina, Nimbooz, 7Up, Lays, Uncle Chips etc. Coke on the other hand has the following brands: Coca Cola, Coke light, Diet - coke, Kinley water, Kinley Soda, Scheweppes, Minute Maid, Maaza, Limca, Fanta, Sprite, Thums Up, Mountain Dew etc. Pepsi and Coke command over 95% of the soft-drink market in India. However Coke continues to outsell Pepsi most areas of the world but in India and Pakistan and some other other countries, PepsiCo fares far better than coke. Still, both the companies are highly profitable in their Indian business. PepsiCo is the second-largest beverage business in the world after Coca Cola Ltd. More than 45 percent of the revenue of PepsiCo comes from outside the United States, with approximately 30 percent coming from emerging and developing markets. Coke has around 43% US beverage market share, PepsiCo has the figure at around 31%, Cadbury Scheweppes has a share of around 18%. .The article lays stress on the Marketing ideology of Pepsi and Coke specially in Indian markets. Lets first have a brief look at the history of introduction of Coke and Pepsi in India: Coke was the leading Indian soft-drink brand in 1977 when a government regulation to share the Coke's secret formula forced Coca Cola to exit India. Coke re-entered India in 1993 after the policies were relaxed a bit. Coke acquired local Indian brands like Thums Up, Limca, Maaza, Citra and Gold Spot and made a strong come back into the Indian Markets.PepsiCo entered India in 1989 with a joint venture with Parle Agro and Voltas India Ltd. In 1995, Coke had 52 % of the Indian soft-drink market share and Pepsi had around 42% market share. Since then Pepsi has had a really strong growth in India and has comprehensively pushed aside Coke sales in India. In Prepared By: AbdulHadi 24

More than 13% of PepsiCo business revenues come from Wal-Mart store chain. Wal-Mart has a significant buyer power and can easily dictate prices over PepsiCo leaving it with very small margins. In addition, if PepsiCo would lose Wal-Mart it would lose 13% of its revenue and competitive advantage. 2. Low pricing. PepsiCo usually prices its products lower than its competitors. Low price is associated with low quality and PepsiCo products are usually perceived as ones. 3. Questionable practices. PepsiCo is using and selling tap water but places view of mountains on its water bottle labels, thus deceiving people that it is mountain spring water when it is not. PepsiCo has also been criticized for using water in India with higher than allowed amount of pesticides in it. 4. Weak brand awareness.

  29. 29. PepsiCo Opportunities 1. Growing beverages and snacks consumption in emerging markets. PepsiCo has made large investments in BRIC countries to expand its market share as these countries represent the fastest growing food and beverages markets in the world. If PepsiCo is successful it will increase its revenues and global market share significantly. In addition, it will be able to rely less on US market. 2. Increasing demand for healthy food and beverages. Due to many programs to fight obesity, demand for healthy food and beverages has increased drastically. PepsiCo has an opportunity to further expand its product range with beverages and snacks that have low amount of sugar and calories. 3. Further expansion through acquisitions. So far, PepsiCo has been successful in acquiring other companies and adding new growing brands to its portfolio. 4. Bottled water consumption growth. Consumption of bottled water is expected to grow both in US (PepsiCo’s largest bottled water market) and the rest of the world. 5. Savory snacks consumption growth. The same opportunity PepsiCo has in growing its revenue selling snacks as this market is also expected to grow. Threats 1. Changes in consumer tastes. Consumers around the world become more health conscious and reduce their consumption of carbonated drinks, drinks that have large amounts of sugar, calories and fat. 2. Water scarcity. Water is becoming scarcer around the world and increases in both cost and criticism for PepsiCo over the large amounts of water used for production. 3. Decreasing gross profit margin. PepsiCo’s gross profit margin was decreasing over the past few years and may continue to decrease due to higher water and other raw material costs. 4. Strong dollar. More than 50% of PepsiCo’s income is from outside US. Due to strong dollar performance against other currencies PepsiCo’s income should fall. 5. Increased competition from Snyder’s. Snyder’s increase its US savory snacks market share by 1.6% and almost all of it was taken from PepsiCo. (Jurevicius,O) Prepared By: AbdulHadi 29

Mostly, the social implications are seen in advertising campaigns like some countries have religious festivals, so Pepsi has to keep in line with all these festivals and design advertising campaign accordingly to cash upon the opportunity to the fullest. Also the solid waste management program affects the operations at PepsiCo. PepsiCo has to be extra careful when it comes to waste disposable in order to maintain its image of a socially responsible firm.
