Caselet 1
DOMINO’S
Organised Pizza business in India is 12 years old. It started when Domino‘s and Pizza Hut, the two
biggest Pizza chains with origins in US entered India and set up stores. Before that the only pizzas
that Indians were used to were from a very few Italian restaurants and chains like Nirula‘s. Pizzas
were also served in 5 star hotels and were considered a very premium food back then. The category
consumers are the young Indians in the age group of 18 to 35 yrs. from SEC A and B. Domino‘s
started its first store in India in 1995. Today, with 576 stores across 123 cities in India (as of 31st
March 2013), Domino‘s is the market leader in the organized Pizza category with 67% market share
and also the largest International QSR chain in the country. The environment is a self-service,
hygienic, air-conditioned environment with cheerful but not decorative interiors, often with seating
for 15 to 40 customers. Our stores are self-service without any cutlery and customers eat out of Pizza
boxes and with their hands.
In the following years, the campaigns were more product / promotion centric. The 30 mins or free
delivery promise became one element of the Ads. The brand positioning continued to be ‗Hungry
Kya?‘ The focus was to position the brand as the makers of great tasting pizzas. This was done
through the launch of many new indulging Pizza products with communication revolving around new
and tasty products & craving for the Domino‘s pizza. The delivery occasion was retained as a context
of all the communication. Some of the successful launches were 3 Cheese Pizza, Double Burst Pizza,
Double Cheese Crunch Pizza, Cheese Burst Pizza, Calzone, and Stuffed Crunch Pizza. However, we
were still seen as an expensive brand and it continued to be an opportunity for further growth. In
2006, we cracked this code as well with the launch of Fun Meal range of pizzas starting at 45/- price
point. In 2008, we launched the Pizza Mania range of Pizzas starting at Rs 35/-, and since then we
have become a mass player in the category straddling the entire spectrum of price points and
consumer requirements. The Pizza Mania launch made us a very accessible brand and we had lot of
new customers coming into our stores who had never tried pizzas before in their lives.
Questions:
1. How do we drive the frequency of our existing consumers and gain more share of eating out /
out-of-home food occasions?
2. How do we remain relevant in our positioning ‗Yeh Hai Rishton ka time‘ & further
impregnate it in consumer minds across 120+ cities in India where we are present and new
cities we are moving into?

breakthrough product was and continues to be the BlackBerry. However, the business faces a number
of strategic challenges. RIM has seen its stock performance stagnate while rivals such
as Apple and Google have performed strongly and started to erode its market dominance.A number of
strategic shifts in the Smartphone market have affected the company adversely. First, Apple has
fundamentally changed the sector with the launch of the iPhone. The device has established a
dominant position, especially in the consumer segment, and is now making inroads in the corporate
market that has traditionally been BlackBerry‘s dominant space. More recently, Apple has entered the
tablet PC market with the iPad. Second, the sharp growth in take-up of smart phones using Google‘s
Android operating system is also eating into BlackBerry‘s market share. These two challenges have
had a double-whammy negative impact on RIM as both volume growth and margins have eroded with
increased competition high quality global journalism requires investment. While some investors and
analysts have called for a dramatic change in RIM‘s operations, others fear that the company will
dilute its core competence by trying to compete with the iPhone and the Android platform. Instead,
RIM has taken a multipronged strategic approach. First, the company has strengthened its presence in
the enterprise market by introducing a number of new BlackBerry models, many of which have
improved touch screens to make the user experience more akin to competitor devices. Second, the
company has made strides in getting its ―App Store‖ off the ground. While it still lags behind the
iPhone and Android app stores, it has reached a critical mass with more than 15,000 apps, which at
least gives it a presence. A number of strategic shifts in the Smartphone market have affected the
company adversely. Second, the sharp growth in take-up of Smartphone using Google‘s Android
operating system is also eating into BlackBerry‘s market share. In recent years, avid BlackBerry users
were tempted by the iPhone. Now, the BlackBerry line has all the multimedia functionality of the
competitors, along with its core strength of security. The company‘s recent marketing strategy
showcasing the multimedia and social networking functionality of devices also suggests that RIM is
serious about expanding its consumer market share.
