Can Starbucks still be Seattle's best if it grows by hyping Seattle's Best? – 05/25/10
From the article: Starbucks' move is a familiar one in the consumer world. In fashion, there's Gap with its Old Navy and Banana Republic brands, or take Ralph Lauren's American Living line for J.C. Penney. Williams-Sonoma has Pottery Barn and West Elm. Marriott has the Fairfield Inn, and the list goes on. Companies do it because it's a classic, proven way to grow a business. "It gives you the opportunity to reach a different group of customers without extending your core brand too far," says Tim Calkins at Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management.... But developing another line is never a guaranteed slam-dunk. The biggest hurdle for companies is figuring out how to keep brands distinct. "The challenge to Starbucks is what is Seattle's Best brand going to stand for really," Calkins says. "Is it just coffee that isn't quite as good as Starbucks?" The more overlap between the brands, the more cannibalization and customer confusion.
