The Food Price Conundrum Reset for 2012

The food price value equilibrium continues resetting in Restaurants, Grocery stores and Convenience stores, where is the bottom?  We won’t know until the consumer stands still.  Retail foodservice consumer discontinuity is the only constant.  Consumers are looking for “better for you” products at a better for you price. 

What is the price of breakfast?  McDonalds is putting the US on notice that it does not plan any capitulation of breakfast market share! There is no greater gift than customers that love your food, and will pay for it-but at what price?   Here is my formula for establishing customer focused price in 2012:

Price + Quality + Service + Portability = Value 

Incremental Value = Constantly Changing Menu (Seasonally / Sustainability with creditability).
