Buffalo Wild Wings, Inc. Strategic Plan Case Solution

Case Solution

An increased competition in the restaurant industry in the upcoming year would be the main factor for small companies to merge. Acquisition can also be an option for small companies that would aim at growing by an increase in the company’s size. These greater than before consolidations have another reason. This reason is the decline in profit margins of companies due to the increased competition. The increase in the demand for low-cost food would pressurize the companies to decrease their expenses and costs. The restaurants have one option for allowing this decrease and that is through the economies of scale concept, which reinforces further acquisitions and mergers to increase in size.
