From the Paper:

"The product or service in this case is coffee as well as various tea drinks which are to be marketing in a concept for a coffee shop. The restaurant industry is composed of two major segments: the full-service segment and the fast food segment. However, over the past decade a novel concept has quickly been developing into a new segment of its own: the quick-casual segment. Coffee Time has found a niche market product in its mixed coffee/tea products and has planned its menu to include, in addition to fresh breads, such items as: salads, soups, gourmet roast coffees, and other specialty type food and drink items such as teas, chais, and other gourmet style teas. Per the coffee industry, the specialty coffee market is and always has been a fractured market with the exception of Starbucks ("IS"). "
