As a requirement for the partial fulfillment for the course of Bachelors in Business Administration from Christ University, Bangalore, I under took a project in the area of ‘Marketing’ under India’s premier market leader in the Café segment, Café Coffee Day, for a period of 45 days during April-May. Guided by Mr. Ashish Sehgal, a highly talented and creative Area Manager at the head office in Chandigarh, this project, “Increasing The ASPD of Loss making Cafés’ ensured I get hands on experience in the area of marketing and market research through the high level of field work and complexity it involved.
Starting on the 14th of April, the internship required me to report at the Regional Head Office in Delhi office for 3 days in order to gain through knowledge of the processes and requirements of the project that I was assigned. After which, I set off to start my on-site work at the loss making units in Chandigarh and Panchkula. Set amidst busy markets of Chandigarh and Panchkula are two Cafés of Café Coffee Day that in spite of the strategic location and promotion activities fail to give the desired outputs that were expected of them. This project thus involves conducting through market survey in order to draw conclusions regarding the reason(s) behind the slacking, conducting research on customer behavior and devising techniques to help increase the ASPD (Average Sales per Day) of these losses making Cafés through repair of the existing potholes or execution of new promotional activities.

Keeping in mind this project, we will consider primary sources as the main method of data collection since this project is done through complete observation and field work. Secondary sources have also been used in many places with internet being the main source.
