It is the world's largest fast food chain, selling primarily hamburgers, chicken, French fries and carbonated drinks. It was later modified and expanded by their business partner, Ray Kroc who later bought out the business of the McDonald brothers and went on and found McDonald's Corporation. Advertising has always played a key role in the development of the McDonald's Corporation. Indeed, McDonald's ads have been some of the most identifiable over the years. In 1962, McDonald's introduced its now worldfamous Golden Arches logo. A year later, the company sold its billionth hamburger and introduced Ronald McDonald, a red-haired clown designed to appeal to children.

  20. 20. The report has been designed to study the consumer behaviour with respect to McDonalds and KFC. A questionnaire was designed in order to understand the reasons of the consumer perception towards the two food giants. Our method of going about the study at hand involved the basic survey method, whereby we put forward questions to individuals. This was carried out by a survey comprising of two questionnaires, one aimed at the customers at either of the two food joints and the other for the employees employed at the food joints. Our questions were designed to capture the market trends, the grounds behind such a trend, the peripherals related to the functioning of the food joint, key marketing strategies adopted and finally aimed at drawing the inferences and conclusions for the same
  21. 21. Question 1.Which age group do you belong to? The first question was essentially designed to throw light on the age group of people visiting/dining at the food joints. This gave us an idea of the preference of a particular food brand among a given age group if any. For e.g. the HAPPY MEAL available at McDonalds attracted the major portion of the younger crowd. As a matter of fact as shown in the following questions, this particular strategy drained almost the entire young consumer segment. Of the individuals surveyed a majority of the individuals belonged to the 18-25 yr age group both voted for McDonald’s as well as KFC.
  22. 22. Question 2. What is your profession? This question was essential in calculating the trend of the customers who visit these food joints i.e. The working class of the people visiting the respective places. The survey revealed that the majority of people visiting both the places i.e. 46% for KFC and 55% for McDonalds were students. This thus lays direct stress on the strategies adopted by both the joints resulting in a heavy demand among the student group.
  23. 23. Question 3.Are you a vegetarian/non-vegetarian? This was essentially designed to demarcate the groups according to whether they were vegetarians or otherwise. It was a preconceived idea that the vegetarians preferred McDonalds of the two while KFC proved to be a nonvegetarian paradise. This thus showed a balanced market for McDonalds where as a strong shift for KFC towards the non-vegetarian section
  24. 24. Question 4.What is your saying on the pricing of the joint? In KFC 31% found the food priced nominally and an equal amount of people surveyed i.e. 31% found inexpensive. Hence it was concluded that it dropped down to the individual in the case of KFC and there was no clear market trend. In McDonalds 46% found it nominally priced as well as value for money while just 8% found it expensive. Hence in terms of comparative study it was concluded that McDonalds was optimally priced although KFC wasn't overpriced either.
  25. 25. Question 5.How much do spend on an average per visit? This question again was concerned with the pricing as well as spending capability of the people. The results indicated that a major section, i.e. around 52% voted for KFC and 42% for McDonalds.
  26. 26. Question 6.Do you get drawn in by the television commercials of the food items? This question was designed to get an idea about the publicity/advertising strategy of the food brands. This particular question analyzes the potency of the advertising strategies used by the food brands in attracting or influencing the customers.
  27. 27. In India fast food market is strongly dominated by these 2 brands. But when it comes to comparing these two brands the following study brings us to a conclusion that as far as market presence and brand value is concerned McDonalds has definitely proved a point for themselves. But KFC who re-entered in 2003 has shown a rapid progress and no wonder if in the coming years KFC overtakes McDonald’s in the Indian market share. Both the foodgiants have given each other immense competition in terms of customer satisfaction and promotional strategies.
  28. 28. The range of products and offers offered by each is remarkable in every context. Although McDonalds has an upper hand with the vegetarian crowd because of its exclusive products, KFC is slowly catching up to the challenge. KFC provides vegetarian alternatives with an added advantage of a complete meal including rice and desert. Where McDonalds fall into the snack option KFC had covered the meal area .Thus it is not quite evident which one can be termed as better than the other.
  29. 29.     KFC needs to re-vamp its vegetarian menu and add more options to it. The fried chicken category already has more options and varieties as compared to the vegetarian section. McDonalds could try to enter the meals category into its menu Both companies need to work on their logistics and inventory management (as discussed with Branch managers) Need to train their staff better in handling of the cooked food
