Our tasks:
Given Illycaffe’s move into the United
States coffee market, management as well
as consumers may question Illy’s
positioning versus Starbucks coffee.
Although Illycaffe entered the U.S. market
mainly through B2B ventures while
Starbucks dominates the retail market,
both coffee companies are bound to clash
at some point through exploring each
other’s business segments.

Introduction about
Illy is annoyed when companies like Starbucks call
their drinks espresso, latte, or hybrid Italian names like
frappuccino, and refer to their employees as baristas.

both sides of the Atlantic, and it is companies like

Starbucks’
business structure
CEO~
Starbucks have three kind of business structure in
the global: self-owned, joint ventures,licensing
agreements.
What’s more, Franchising would seem a natural
entry mode for Starbucks, but the chain
sometimes owns the shops even abroad.
For example, in china, Since the beginning of
China's new to the market, so when Starbucks
entered the Chinese to prepare, they chose the
means of franchising.
Franchising would seem a natural
entry mode for Starbucks, but the
chain sometimes owns the shops
even abroad. What could be the
explanation?
• In order to understand why Starbucks
is so successful, we have to perform
internal and external analysises of the
corporation.
• Although the growth on the coffee
market has been slowdown,
competition is still tremendous, and
new firms are trying to enter the low
barrier market constantly . The
corporation is affected by political,
economic, social and technogical
factors within its marcoenvironment
and the competition that already
exists,the power of buyers
andsuppliers play a major role in the
business’ market growth.
• In order for the company to maintain the competitive edge,
it has to remain the innovative skills and continue offering
new differentiated products, investing in its partners and in
its ethical values towards the environment.
Imagine you were Andrea
Illy, what strategic plan
would you develop?
If I were Andrea Illy, I would set up a branch which
is mainly responsible for selling our company’s
products and services in the U.S., enabling it to
supervise the distribution of their firm’s goods and have
easy access to the exporter’s staff to place orders or
seek help and advice. It can also recruit some local staff
who are very familiar with the local condition.
On the one hand, it will be propitious to close
the culture distance. On the other hand, it will be in
favor of understanding the local tastes and market
needs, making the export coffee more suitable for
the local people and offering better services.
Illycaffe entered the U.S. market mainly through
B2B and Starbucks dominates the retail market of
the U.S., so I thinked we could cooperate with
Starbucks.
As Starbucks and us both are with stong
background, cooperation will conquer the
disadvantages of two parties and come into a winwin end.This would let Illycaffe syncretize in the
U.S. more quickly and better.
