Learners will be virtually immersed into a peaceful beach in Zanzibar with white sand, clear turquoise waters, and a variety of exotic juice bars. But how do customers choose which bar to approach? They are situated close to one another, look the same and sell similar products.
Participants will meet two business owners - Gabriella at Bravocado, and Robert at Zanzi-Bar - and gather details in order to figure out their different business outlooks and competitive advantage. Based on their acquired knowledge, participants will also have an opportunity to consult Gabriella and give her some strategic advice on how to expand her avocado shake business. What would be her optimal option to support sustainable growth?
