New Product Development
Case Synopsis -
Mobtown plans to release a new product in early 2018 called Cafe Matcha. A Matcha is a cold tea beverage that's different from their original core kombucha product. Mobtown is looking to analyze their competitors, identifying ideal customer segments and distribution strategies, and assess ways to launch their new product within the most ideal markets. Unlike their Kombucha, this product will not require refrigeration since it's not a probiotic. It's a caffeinated alternative to sugary coffee-based drinks like the Starbucks Latte you can buy off the shelf. With this product, the company is much more flexible with distribution, though they certainly want to leverage their existing distribution network and relationships as they think through their strategy.
