Task 2

Literature Review: This research is trying to empathies the excitement of the consumers regarding the opening of new Romanian Restaurant in Manor Park. As for the settlement of the restaurant, many factors are waiting to criticize it. While settling the restaurant, environment surrounding may be polluted and rival restaurants may create issue regarding this. Management of the Restaurant should take special care regarding this matter. Administration should also take the responsibility of the grounding staff and the cleaning arrangements provided by them (Bredillet, 2007). While above are the criticism, there are some support towards the opening of the restaurant. The residents of Manor Park will get new kind of rich dishes of Romania. Natives of there will get benefited by the opening of new Romanian Restaurant at Manor Park (Prager, 2002).

Around the world, among all kind of dishes, Romanian dishes has its own and different image. Romanian cuisine has a diverse blend of dissimilar dishes from numerous traditions whichever it has come into contact, but it also uphold its own nature. Romanian dishes are greatly influenced by Ottoman cuisine. It also gets influenced by from the neighbouring cuisines such as Germans, Serbs Hungarians and Bulgarians (Lauta and Brigdale, 2010). Wedding feasts are the most famous dish of Romania as it includes kegs of wine and tunic and a massive round loaf of beard shared by husband and wife (Chamberlain and Davies, 2007). As Romania is an agricultural and industrial country, major of the population loves to have meat (Horowitz, 2006). But here, we are not talking just about the Romanian people, but also the people of London who live in Manor park area. This paper would like to find out about how these people think of the Romanian food. the management of the Romanian Restaurant about the excitement of the customers towards them.   

It is evident that the Romanian dishes themselves have their great image in the world, but the major issue in this report is that, whether the restaurant will be able to maintain the reputation. Past experiences has cautioned the owners as general losses are a common things in the business and any research done must be progressive in nature (Chamberlain and Davies, 2007). Previous researches had flows as it only took the view of the owners and customers, but not of the external factors such as creditors, lenders, government, environment etc. Thus, any further research must incorporate their role in opening a restaurant.

In doing this research, several forms of data collection methods have been utilised but some of the most important ones is secondary data collection such as magazines, financial records, newspaper, web, etc. All these sources are a necessary source to collate information and have a necessary base for opening a restaurant. From the above analysis, the researcher concludes that there will be high chance of gaining the goodwill and reputation by setting up the new Romanian restaurant at Manor Park in London. By launching a new Romanian restaurant, the Romanian cuisines will be accepted and preferred by the people of Manor Park. As there are few Romanian cuisine restaurants so, it will be beneficial and profitable by the opening of new Romanian restaurant.

Matching the Resources: Various studies had been conducted in order to determine the factors which are essential for the success of food restaurants. As per the article which has been published by Dennis McCurley, 2011, the major factor for the success of the food restaurants is revolves around the ownership of the restaurants rather than visitor-ship. The major detailed factors which are stated by him are the quality services in relation to food, beverages, variety of the alcohol, etc. All this factors comprehensively helps in success of the restaurants.

In the same way, Geoff Wilson had also provided a list which consists of 20 factors which act as a backbone for the success of restaurants, but he has also included some other crucial factors which Denis McCurley has omitted in his study. Geoff Wilson states that there are some essential factors such as demographic location, differentiated brand image, feedback of the customers, attaining the positive attitude of the staffs and customers as well. The essential factors which are mandatory for the restaurants in order to have substantial growth and development are described below:

Concept of the Restaurants: This is the main factors which is aimed and reviewed by several authors including Bill Ryan and Michael Kreisler, 2003. It is the foremost factors which act as a pillar in the success of the restaurants. The restaurants owners must thoroughly considered this factor before commencing of restaurants. Thinking the concept of restaurants includes decoration, lighting, catalogue of foods and menu booklet, pricing, location, food preparation and presentation, size of operation, etc.

Food: Spyridon Mamalis states that the food is the second most important ingredients in the successful establishment of the restaurants. Many times it is observed that customers go for the quality of product rather than quantity of the products. Hence, food preparation and presentation must be done in such a manner so that the reputation of the restaurants can be enhanced. Thus it is very necessary to have a market research in respect of taste and preferences of the customers, before establishing a restaurant.

Management of Restaurants: A detailed research has been conducted by Keith H. Mandabach, Mohammad Ashar Siddiqui, Gregory F. Blanch and Dawn M. Vanleeuwen, in 2011 stated that the management of the restaurant is one of the essential ingredients which play a vital role in the success of the restaurants.  The success of the restaurants depends on the management of the staffs and employees internally then tackling the external environments. There should be a balance in the management of both internal and external environment so as to avoid the hurdles in the path of the success of the restaurants. 

Target Market and its Marketing: Determining the target market and its marketing is another important factors in the success of any restaurants. The management must identify the prospective customers and the market as well so that the restaurants can have a smooth function in its operations. In this respect it is essential to observe the trends, life style, preferences, food categories, etc.  Once the target market is done, next comes the marketing and its process. Marketing is nothing but a process through the organization retains its customers and creates the customers as well. It is executed with the help of marketing mix which generally comprises of product, price, promotion, and place.

Location: Last but the least, location of the restaurants have a major impact on the success of the restaurants. The location of the restaurants must be such so that the restaurants can have more numbers of the customers. Location must be selected by considering the fact it can be successful in identifying the prospective customers.

Methodology:

Research Philosophy: In a research project, the main motive is to fetch out the required research methodologies which are implied for this research project.

On the other hand the researcher goes for Deductive approach when all the necessary information is undertaken by him, which will eventually scrutinize the data to analyze an effective conclusion.

The traditional Romanian cuisines include various kinds of cheese, vegetable spreads as well as cold cuts that are appetizer (Ciurtin, 2001). The major ingredients used by the chefs i.e. meats like beef, pork, fish, lamb, dairy products, fruits and vegetables. Romanian restaurant is famous for their cuisines in all overthe world. Hence, the researcher is making projects regarding the new Romanian restaurant in Manor Park, London. With the help of this research the taste and preference of the customers in London can be known and whether the customers are excited about the new Romanian restaurant or not and also for knowing the exceptions and needs of the customers (Horowitz, 2006).

The customers want the modern mixer kinds of foods they don’t want simple or homey types of foods as people always wants change in their tastes and preferences.  It is known from the survey that, the people in London mainly demand and go for the crafted, innovative kinds of foods and atmosphere. They will pay for the tastes of the cuisines but as well as by seeing the decoration and dedication of the restaurant. From the sample age group have been surveyed it is analyzed that form thirteen age to the younger age will prefer the Romanian cuisine as because in London the teen are busy in their academic so they don’t get the time to join their family for lunch or breakfast and same as the younger or businessmen face this, so by launching Romanian cuisines it will help them to enjoy the most trendy foods (Chamberlain and Davies, 2007). People of London always like to enjoy rich and delicious dishes so it will be beneficial for the enterprise by providing Romanian cuisines to the customers as it known that Romanian cuisines is the tool of rich food.

So, the company will not have to face any problem relating to the visit of the customers, as people there enjoy Romanian dishes. Romanian cuisines are greatly enjoyed by the people of London, so the Management of the Restaurant will have to give much attention regarding the quality standard of the food (Lauta and Brigdale, 2010).  Management should make their customers aware about the offers of the restaurant so that they can establish their image in the area and can establish themselves in the long run. Moreover, the research has also helps to find out the necessity and requirements of the customers relating to Romanian cuisines.
