6. Market research

Bake and beans is focuses on New Zealand’s customers to attract to the Indian Taste in bakery and as the business is unique in New Zealand hence the Market research of the study is divided into two segments of service business analysis.

Bakery: Any bakery offering bakery products.

Pie: Any Pies in the market including which is sold in super markets.

Competition and buying patterns.

Although the bakery business is growing popularity amongst the new customers and increase in demand of vegetarian cakes the customers are noted in purchasing the cakes and bakery items from their local super markets, the reason of purchasing it from the super markets would be the easy availability of the products while they shop for normal items or the special deals provided by the companies timely. To match up with that we need to compete against the idea of customers and promote the quality assurance and freshness of the products we sell.

While the taste may be the factor for the customer which is the normal taste for the Kiwi’s and they not willing to pay more than what they see in the super market. We believe that they will be willing to spend more if they will came to awareness of the differences between the freshly made bakery products against the product sold in supermarket with preservatives.
