Brand Extension Marketing Plan for Snyder’s-Lance Inc.
1. Executive Summary
The following marketing plan forms the basis for the introduction of an innovative new product by Snyder’s-Lance Inc. This analysis allows me to outline the best strategies to follow for the achievement of the company’s strategic goals. “Pretzel Abobodas” will be marketed as a unique flavored pretzel that targets the Hispanic consumer, while striving to reinforce the company’s focus on wanting to penetrate the Hispanic market. The marketing strategies will hopefully enable our company to reach a market size of an estimated 2,000,000 Hispanic Consumers (targeted) with forecasted sales growth prospects of 5% over the next 3 years ($450,000 profits), while satisfying the needs if the unserved market of consumers. Success will be reflected by a sizeable capture of market shares within this market, while strategically positioning the company as a market leader in the salty snacks segments of the industry.
