Results of "
McDonald's and Starbucks' exceeded expectations


Higher than expected quarterly results reported leaders in selling fast food and coffee - McDonalds and Starbucks, as a result of recovery of global consumption, reported Bloomberg.

"
Households are beginning to make the costs more easily, leading to growth in sales,"
said Troy Alsted, chief financial officer of Starbucks. According to McDonald's only concern for the recovery of U.S. economy are high unemployment rates, but the company claims that there has been progress in increasing its market share in the U.S. and abroad, says the Wall Street Journal.

For the period January - March 2010 profits of McDonald's rose 11% to 1.09 billion dollars compared to 979.5 million dollars for the same quarter in 2009, while revenues were 10% higher.

"
We will maintain growth in April, at least as it is in the first quarter,"
said CEO Jim Skinner told the Wall Street Journal. Among the factors for good results, highlighting the company, are offering new products in U.S. and upgrade of the restaurants in France, Russia and Britain.

Having also observed a significant increase in profit for the period, the largest retailer of coffee Starbucks improve its forecast for annual profit by 14 cents more per share. More than eight-fold increased net profit of the company for one year - from 25 million to 217.3 million

The growth in revenue is 8.6 percent more because of the loyalty program of the company and improved customer satisfaction. Sales of coffee Via and distribution agreements with food chains, Subway and Burger King will increase profits further, the company forecast.

For the next quarter (which is the third year of the "
Starbucks"
), the company plans to increase advertising of its most profitable products in the amount of 2-3% of sales.

Analysts say competition between the two companies is growing more and more, writes Reuters. Besides that unit sales of coffee McDonalds - Makkafe has a major role in the strong quarterly results, the products that it offers, with up to $ 1 cheaper than the Starbucks.

The largest restaurant chain also plans to expand its product range of drinks with competing products on the successful line of Starbucks - Frappuccino. The good results of companies led to increased their shares by 13% for McDonald's and 10% for Starbucks this year.

4th Starbucks Coffee Shop Opens Doors in Bulgaria

The coffee chain Starbucks opened its fourth location in Bulgaria Tuesday, inside the recently inaugurated shopping center in Sofia – The Mall.

Starbucks came to Bulgaria two years ago. The other three coffee shops are located in the capital and the Black Sea city of Burgas – 2 separate facilities in downtown Sofia and one at Burgas Plaza Mall.

Starbucks entered Bulgaria's market through the Greek Marinopoulos Coffee Company, which also holds the rights on Greece, Cyprus and Romania.

Starbucks - A better class of coffee?

The enduring popularity of Starbucks is perhaps puzzling, particularly considering the prices in what is, after all, a self-service cafe. And then there's the concerted campaign by those who consider it elitist and are forever foaming about how a concoction of similar ingredients should be a quarter of the price.

Drinks are expensive, of course. Let's look at the so-called tall version of certain cold drinks, since it's summer. The "
tall"
drink is actually a middle-sized dose between "
short"
and "
grande"
. Iced signature chocolate is 4.50 leva, iced shaken coffee is three leva, iced cafe latte is 3.50 leva, chocolate cream is 4.90 leva, lemon green tea is 4.80 leva and caramel frapuccino, (particularly refreshing on a hot day) is 5.40 leva.

Starbucks seems to be a venue for expats and well-heeled Bulgarians. So customers try to make their purchases last, extending conversation long beyond the final sip. If alone, people tend to gaze into their laptops for inordinately long periods.

A point in Starbucks' favour is that you are not pressurised to leave – either directly or in subtle ways – once you have drained your mug. Other plus points are the smoking ban – although you can smoke outside and on the forecourt of one of the new Starbucks outlets in The Arena Mall – the loyalty card entitling you to a free drink after your fifth, and the freebies they sometimes offer to lure you back.

Personally, I've never had a sandwich at Starbucks but, for the record, here are some of the offers. Ham and cheese (3.50 leva for 190g), low fat turkey fillet (3.90 leva for 185g) and caesar chicken bacon and emmental cheese ciabatta (4.90 leva for 210g). You can certainly get similar types of sandwiches elsewhere at much cheaper prices.

Desserts at Starbucks are of better value than the drinks. The marble chocolate cheesecake (5.90 leva for 172g), carrot cake with cheese cream (5.90 leva for 210g) and raspberry white cheesecake (5.90 leva for 176g) are all good. The best, however, is the apple caramel cheesecake, (5.90 leva for 140g), definitely up to the standard of home-made.

Bulgaria's first Starbucks opened in 2008 on the corner of Vasil Levski Blvd and Gurko Blvd and has a small outdoor seating area. This remains the most spacious outlet with plenty of comfortable sofas. Others are on the corner of Vassil Levski Blvd and Frityof Nansen (pictured), which now has a large outside area, and the recently inaugurated Arena Mall in Tsarigradsko Blvd, actually on two separate floors.

All Starbucks outlets are definitely a notch above their rivals, but it's probably best to avoid a full "
meal"
here as that does get expensive.

Starbucks raises prices

The largest chain of coffee establishments "
Starbucks"
(Starbucks) will increase prices of most of its products, announced in April

Appreciation is necessary because of higher prices of raw coffee and affect mainly coffee specialities. The company however did not specify which ones to drink involved and what will be projected appreciation.

Prices of mainstream beverages will not be changed, including that of espresso.

According to the official release of the company's appreciation will affect packaged coffee which is available at the sites of the chain.

Other major coffee chains have taken steps to increase prices of their products. These include Folgers, Dunking 'Doughnuts and Millstone. Plans for the 10-15% price increase announced chain Green Mountain Coffee Roasters.
