30 Porter 5 Force Model Rivalry Among Competing Firms: (high) Entry of New Competitors: (low)Potential Development of Substitute Products: (medium)Bargaining Power of Suppliers: (medium)Bargaining Power of Consumers: (high)
31 Rivalry Among Competing Firms: (high) This is usually the most powerful of the 5 competitive forcesRivals (Direct Competitors)Moe’s Southwest Grill and Qdoba Mexican Grill are both widely known and similar fast casual dining establishments They create a threat to Chipotle because they serve the same kind of productsSubstitutes (Indirect Competitors)Other fast food companies (MCD, YUM, WEN)
32 Entry of New Competitors: (low) Hard to successfully enter the industry (very high failure rate)Already fierce competitionVery difficult to compete with such big companies (Chipotle, MCD, Wendys/Arbys, Yum Brands)
33 Potential Development of Substitute Products: (medium) Rather than eating at Chipotle, one could opt to:Stay home and make a burrito or taco Go to another fast-food restaurant Substitutes are not limited to our rival competitors of places such as Moe’s, Taco Bell and Qdoba but also include other fast food chains such as McDonalds, and Wendy’s/Arby’s Group. Seek a more “authentic” Mexican experience(example: Allegany’s Don Luchos)
34 Bargaining Power of Suppliers: (medium) The ingredients that they use for their products is not low in supply (chicken, pork)However since Chipotle uses the best raw materials, they often have to pay a premium to stay consistent with their "Food with Integrity" missionAdditionally, there are fewer farms that Chipotle views as acceptable for their purchasing needs Chipotle products also require a large amount of fresh produce, which are all seasonal products (tomatoes, onions, lettuce, etc). As a result the prices for these products may be higher due to seasonality factorsRising prices in oil also affect Chipotle
35 Bargaining Power of Consumers (high) This force will be high because the consumers are what runs Chipotle’s businessIf people do not enjoy the service and products that the business is producing, Chipotle's profits will decline and may lead to eventual closing of locations Chipotle will need to ensure that there prices remain competitive to their competitors within the market placeWe believe this is a place where Chipotle will need to seek improvement as their prices are currently higher than their competitors on average
40 Core CompetenceSome of the value chain activities that Chipotle performs especially well are:High quality products with the best raw materials(naturally raised beef, pork and chicken)Healthy ingredientsGood, clean and friendly environment(decor, music)Provide customers with a fast-casual dining experience at an affordable priceFast-serviceServe alcohol

43 Value Chain Analysis Inbound Logistics: (high) Their high quality raw materials add a lot of value to the final productThey use naturally raised animals for almost all their meatBetter vegetables than competitorsOperations: (low)This stage doesn't add that much value to the product compared to their competitorsA lot of competitors use a similar type assembly line to make their productsThey are considered a fast-casual restaurant rather than traditional fast food so they are not known for their speediness
44 Value Chain Analysis (cont.) Distribution: (very low)Chipotle's distribution is inexistent They do not deliver their products.Sales and Marketing: (low)Chipotle spends 1% of their total revenues on ads compared to their larger rivals that spend 4% or more. They spend less in a year than MCD in 48 hours. They need to increase their market campaigns in order to compete with their larger competitors.Advertise with Billboards and radio adsTake advantage of word of mouths campaignsGive-a-waysThey sponsor teams (cycling)
45 Value Chain Analysis (cont.) Service: (Medium)They rank among the top in fast food customer services based on price, environment, meal, and service.`Conclusion:Most value is added in the raw materials stage by getting the best ingredients available. Additional value is added during the actual process of making the burrito delicious (and fast).The Finally value is added with great service in a well kept, and highly enjoyable store.
