PepsiCo, Inc. was founded by Donald M. Kendall, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pepsi-Cola and Herman W. Lay, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Frito-Lay, through the merger of the two companies in 1965.
In 1966 Pepsi enters Japan and Eastern Europe. Also the slogan becomes, “Come alive! You’re in the Pepsi generation.”
PepsiCo sales pass the $1 billion mark in 1973. PepsiCo moves from New York City to new world headquarters in Purchase, New York.
Foods International, later called PepsiCo Foods International (PFI) and subsequently named Frito-Lay International, is established to market snack foods around the world in 1976.
The Pepsi Challenge, introduced in Dallas, Texas in 1975, becomes a national campaign. Around the nation, consumers select Pepsi-Cola as the best tasting cola. PepsiCo adopts Code of Worldwide Business Conduct.
PepsiCo acquires Pizza Hut, Inc. Also acquire Taco Bell. PepsiCo stock splits three-for- one.
In 1984 PepsiCo is restructured to focus on its three core businesses: soft drinks, snack foods and restaurants. Transportation and sporting goods businesses are sold.
By 1985 PepsiCo is now the largest company in the beverage industry. The company has revenues of more than $7.5 billion, more than 137,000 employees. Pepsi-Cola products are available in nearly 150 countries and territories around the world. Snack food operations are in 10 international markets.
Pepsi reaches all time highs in all categories of the business. The ever growing PepsiCo takes on numerous drinks, snacks, and business to add to it’s growing empire.
In the year 2012, Pepsi has over 285,000 employees. Pepsi is the world leader in convenient snacks, food, and beverages with revenue over $60 billion.

Today’s Price: $66.21 Historical High: In 2007 stock prices got to $78.26 per share. Historical Low: In 1990 the stock price was $13.31 Dividend Amount: 3.11%
From what I have seen and read I have come to the conclusion of what dividends are. I now see that the earnings of a company must be distributed to the stockholders. When a company is doing well, the people who have stock in that company also receive a financial gain. When the company is doing bad, the stockholders take a financial loss.
“S”, stands for strengths of the company. “W”, stands for weaknesses in the company. “O”, stands for opportunities for future growth or areas that have not been explored. “T”, stands for threats to the profitability and growth of the business.
Three strengths of Pepsi are: 1. Brand strength 2. Effective stride in new markets 3. Strong existing distribution channels
1. Pepsi has brand strength due to the vast amount of products they have. They sell snacks, beverages, and merchandise with their logo on it. 2. Pepsi has a effective stride in new business because of the empire they have built. 3. Pepsi has strong distribution channels because they have a trusted name that has been around for a long time.
Three weaknesses of Pepsi are: 1. Reliant upon carbonated drinks 2. Entrance into difficult non care categories 3. Pepsi can cause health problems
1. Pepsi’s business is reliant upon carbonated drinks. If those drinks go bad, they must be thrown out and that is a financial loss. 2. Pepsi sometimes makes bad business decisions and invests into products that do not make it. 3. If a person drinks Pepsi every day for a long time they can develop serious health conditions.
Three opportunities for Pepsi are: 1. New product introductions 2. Brand is attractive to global partners 3. With growing business comes jobs
1. Pepsi is a ever growing company that will always be inventing and investing in new products. 2. The brand is well known and attractive to global partners which will increase revenue. 3. Pepsi’s growing business will always need people to fill job positions.
Three threats of Pepsi are: 1. Strong competition 2. Potential health issues 3. Free trade
1. Pepsi is a major company with many competitors. In a field where there is many competitors there will always be high competition. 2. Drinking Pepsi on a regular basis for several years can cause health issues. 3. Free trade is a problem among Pepsi products because they are shipped all around the world and are at risk of being unprotected.
In my opinion I would not buy stock right now in PepsiCo. The price per share is high right now and it is steadily going up. I would defiantly recommend waiting for the stock price to come down and then buy. But, if you have the money to spend now on the shares, I would buy because it appears that the stock of Pepsi is rising.
