Introduction:
Coffee occupies the third slot after tea and milk in the domestic market. Non-drinkers and occasional coffee drinkers, who account for 78% of the country's populace, are the prime target for the Coffee Board and retail chains for promoting consumption.

According to the study done by the Gallup and Coffee Board, the top of mind recall for teas in the country is 66% as against 22% for coffee. Speaking on opportunities for coffee retailing in India, the country's coffee consumption topped 85,000 tonnes in 2006. Though coffee has been in a commanding position in the southern states, tea also has an equal share. There is a great scope for increasing coffee consumption amongst occasional drinkers and non-drinkers. Coffee has to compete with other beverages to get its share of throat. Marketers have to target younger consumer, and come with new and appealing patterns. Coffee can be easily associated with wellness, health and youth. The market potential is $100 million. INDIA -- Domestic consumption of coffee shows a steady increase. This fact is happening in the same time with the fast food segment growing at the rate of 40% every year. In the next couple of years, coffee chains in India are expected to grow at an annual rate over 30%. From being a traditional beverage consumed mainly in South India, coffee now has a national presence, consumed in several forms and retail formats. The results have been dramatic: domestic consumption of coffee last year increased by nearly one-third, from 60,000 to 80,000 tons.

According to a research report by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation, India's coffee consumption has been chugging along at 2.2 per cent per annum. With consumption pegged at 70,000 tonnes, branded coffee accounts for 53 per cent, unbranded 40 per cent, with cafes constituting 7 per cent.

The Coffee Caf Industry


The Coffee Caf industry is currently one of the biggest and fastest growing sectors in business. The industry consists of a mix of individual cafs, hotel cafs and retail caf chains. India has always been predominantly a Chai (Tea) drinking nation. India is famous for drinking tea .people in India irrespective of the Class, religion and place are fan of tea. Coffee remain in a distinct position compared to tea. However in these days coffee consumption is increasing in India. Indian coffee Board is promoting coffee and it seems that their promotional activities are yielding good result. Coffee has been only moderately popular in some southern states, other than that it has been Chai (Hindi term for Tea), Chahaa (Marathi term for Tea), cutting (Mumbai term for half tea cup), maramari (another popular term from western India for tea) all the way! However, there has been a sudden change in this trend with coffee becoming more and more popular in recent times especially among the younger population. The roadside Chai (Tea) thelas (shops) outside colleges and offices have been replaced by hip coffee joints like Barista and Caf Coffee Day. The Chai (tea) that used to cost couple of rupees (5 cents) is replaced by coffee costing something like Rs. 100 ($2.50). The organized coffee retail business in India is over Rs.8 billion ($17 million), and the potential for coffee retail outlets are nearly 3,000.

A lot can happen over coffee With the Indian middle class consumer ready to spend more and be a part of global lifestyle and culture, coffee parlours in the country are on an expansion spree. From small-sized coffee parlours to classy coffee lounges leading coffee retailers such as Caf Coffee Day, Barista, Costa Coffee and Coffee World have all been fighting hard to lure Indias growing middle class. Individual Cafs: The main bulk of revenue is earned by small, individual cafs, run mostly by families and friends. It is a relatively unorganized sector. There are millions of such cafs around the world, and they provide customers with a homely, casual experience. The bulk of these cafs are mainly in Europe, where every little town or village has local cafs, where people gather together for a conversation over coffee, or just to be alone with their thoughts. These cafs have been the birthplace and sanctuary for various creative minds, revolutionaries and thinkers of our time. The most recent example is the author J.K. Rowling, who has written most of the Harry Potter series of books, sitting at her local caf. These cafs set themselves apart from retail chain cafs and hotel cafs because they provide customers with a homely, classic appeal, which cannot be emulated.

Hotel Cafs: Ever since the popularization of coffee, hotels all over the world started opening 24-hour coffee

These coffeehouses are extremely important, because they provide international visitors to the hotel with a universal drink- coffee. Any customer can walk into any major hotel in the world, and enter the coffeehouse, and know what to expect. These cafs are not really major players in the coffee caf industry, but rather provide supplementary services to the hotel industry. Retail Caf Chains: The last, and the most organized sector in the coffee caf industry, is the retail caf chain. Off late, these chains have become extremely popular and are growing at an ever-increasing pace. These retail chains have work with an organized structure of man, material and money. The work on developing a recognized brand consistent to all their outlets, which customers can easily relate to, wherever they go. They provide customers with a standardized level of service and quality at each of their outlets. Tiff in also. The vintage location of the mess attracts huge crowds even today early in the mornings, Coffee however was not the only item on the menu. These places also served food and other drinks to their customers.

The drink also became famous and as a result even five star hotels began cashing in on it. Several hotels all over the country started opening coffee- shops that catered to high- end customers. This showed the popularization of coffee cafs, to all sections of society. The drink has now become more of a concept than merely a drink itself. The last decade

CAF COFFEE DAY


Caf Coffee Day (CCD) pioneered the caf concept in India in 1996 by opening its first caf at Brigade Road in Bangalore. Till about the late 1990s coffee drinking in India was restricted to the intellectual, the South Indian traditionalist and the five star coffee shop visitor. As the pure (as opposed to instant coffee) coffee caf culture in neighbouring international markets grew, the need for a relaxed and fun hangout for the emerging urban youth in the country was clearly seen. Caf Coffee Day is a division of India's largest coffee conglomerate, Amalgamated Bean Coffee Trading Company Ltd. (ABCTCL), popularly known as Coffee Day, a Rs. 300 crore ISO 9002 certified company. Coffee Day sources coffee from 5000 acres of coffee estates, the 2nd largest in Asia, that is owned by a sister concern and from 11,000 small growers. It is one of Indias leading coffee exporters with clients across USA, Europe & Japan. Recognizing the potential that lay ahead on the horizon, Caf Coffee Day embarked on a dynamic journey to become a large organized retail caf chain with a distinct brand identity of its own. From a handful of cafs in six cites in the first 5 years, CCD has become Indias largest and premier retail chain of cafes with 552 cafes in 90 cities around the country. With its roots in the golden soil of Chickmaglur, the home of some of the best Indiann Coffees and with the vision of a true entrepreneur nurturing it, Coffee Day has its business spanning the entire value chain of coffee consumption in India.

Strategy Caf Coffee Day was among the first coffee cafs to start operations in India in 1996, but was the last to go national (end-2001). Today, with 400 cafs in 75 cities, Caf Coffee Day is the largest chain in the country. Main strategy is combination of affordable prices and product attention to customer needs a strong back-end support system.

India is largely a tea-drinking nation, and coffee has always been a fringe player. While coffee cafs have existed in Europe since the 15th century, in India coffee drinking was restricted to niche segments like intellectuals, the south Indian traditionalist and the five-star coffee shop visitors till the late-1990s. This started

changing slowly after 2000 and not because there were many caf players in India by then.

The direct causes for this change were probably the increasing spending power among urban youth and the increasing exposure to global trends. Hence, even as the first caf was set up in Bangalore in 1996 an idea that struck our chairman V G Siddhartha, while on a visit to a coffee shop in Singapore it proved to be an idea whose time came only by the turn of the century. By then, most other players had joined the bandwagon. They have seen the hard days when every customer had to have every item on the menu explained. Thats one reason they waited until 2000-01 to start expanding nationally. Supply chain Another reason was that they wanted to put the back-end systems in place. Transporting fresh roasted coffee from their own estates in Chikmagalur to faraway places like Mussourie in the north and Jamshedpur in the east they are the only national player present in both cities was a logistical nightmare If, in the thirst for growth, company did not pay attention to this aspect. Believed in being more sure-footed. From bean to cup company is into the coffee estate business for the past 125 years: which means they do not look at the coffee chain business as a short-term business. Company invested approximately Rs 1. 2 crore in r supply chain and chalked out what is called a B2C (bean to cup) supply chain strategy. The supply chain had to support the expansion plans of adding four to six new cafs every month, which led us to adopt industry best practices and, in some cases, develop our own modules. Company went in for a decentralized distribution strategy instead of a hub-and-spoke model, and set up regional hubs in Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata. These cities then linked to the towns in their neighborhood.

The sourcing policy at these hubs included both local and centralized sourcing, based on the volume lead time and value of the materials. We followed a continuous replenishment policy by integrating vendors upstream. For items that had fluctuating demand and large volumes, the inventory was managed by vendors.

By implementing a web-based ordering and electronic order processing system, we cut order-to-delivery lead-time considerably. Online inventory tracking process operated with the use of two supply chain modules: one at the caf level called the POS (point of sales) module and another at the distribution centre level. This was developed internally.

Whats on the menu Menu includes over 250 customised food and beverage offerings to cater to different geographic and demographic segments. At cafs, every coffee menu is combined with the right kind of eats, whether a dessert or a snack. Menu changes occur once in four months to prevent food fatigue. Company believes in regular customer feedback and research so as to determine changing tastes and preferences.

An important decision company took in their outlets was to provide table service and not enforce self-service. The finding was that customers did not want their names to be shouted out when their orders were ready. Another advantage of table service is that they can engage customers in conversation and persuade them to try more dishes on the menu. This is something that cannot be done in a self-service set-up, when there are people queueing up, waiting to be served. Putting consumers first Customers are the best consultants we have. CCD has redesigned its logo, look, and feel of the caf, as well as our brand positioning according to the customers.

We also give out customer feedback forms along with the bills. The filled forms are collected from all regions and sent to the headquarters on a regular basis, to be read and analyzed in detail. These forms also have an email id. Customers who mail in with serious complaints receive a reply within 24 hours.

The price of a cup Main strategy has always been to provide the best coffee experience at an affordable price. For this they need to keep operating costs low. In fact, a large part of our success is due to stringent cost controls. We get coffee beans cheap because we source from our own estates. Most IT solutions were also designed in-house to keep costs low. Company is extremely cost conscious, which they try to inculcate in their employees as well. Traveling expenses and the use of cars and telephones is kept to a minimum. And in many outlets, employees who serve customers do the housekeeping as well, so that they need not need hire extra employees for that task. They try to cut costs at every stage, without cutting corners. For instance, instead of three hinges for the caf doors, we use only two; and, instead of six screws in the hinges, we use only four. They also keep our costs low by sourcing furniture from overseas compared to India, east Asian countries and China are far ahead in terms of low-cost, quality furniture. Imported furniture is about 25 per cent cheaper than Indian, custom-made furniture. Its not just furniture. Bangladesh and Sri Lanka produce better quality crockery at similar prices.

Caf Coffee Day has different food suppliers for different locations. Within one region, we may have as many as three suppliers if there are 40 or 50 cafs. That way, one supplier can serve 15 to 20 cafs. It is too risky to depend on one supplier if something goes wrong, the food supply to all the cafs in a city can be affected. Full of beans Caf Coffee Day generally believes in having clusters of cafs. Within the Mumbai suburb of Bandra, for instance, we have six outlets. At another location, too, CCD has six cafs within a span of half-a-kilometre. This does

result in a little cannibalization, but it also means that we blanket that area. Importantly, none of these outlets is a franchise. A crucial part of the strategy is that all outlets are company-owned. Even though self-owned cafs are more expensive in the short term, a too-hasty switch to the franchisee model may cost the brand value. Besides, self-owned cafs mean greater control on product quality, service and training, which is critical for a relatively-young brand such as ours. Another policy is that CCD do not advertise. They believe that they are not yet big enough to justify mass advertising on-site promotions and localised marketing initiatives still do the trick for CCD. It is found that 85 per cent of the customers are through word-of-mouth. And even without advertising, last year 30 million people visited our cafs. This year, weve hiked that target to 40 million. Then, employee incentives at the cafs depend not only on sales, but also the profits. Also, if a caf does not deliver profits within six months of starting operations, they close it. Over the years, we have closed 14 Caf Coffee Days, while 153 are in operation. CCD is in the process of revamping our loyalty programme to make it dynamic and attractive. Previously customers could get 10 per cent discount on purchases made at our outlet and the points accumulated could be encashed for prizes.

Caf Coffee Day gives the market what it wants, not what it is good at.

Business association:
CCD has emerged as an interactive alternative media for brands to communicate with the young at heart. Other media, such as electronic, print and outdoor, offer brand communication through visual and audio modes to a large section of the populace, both relevant and irrelevant. Caf Coffee Day offers a much more interactive, targeted communication, sometimes adding even a taste dimension to a brand idea! Various in-caf collaterals used to impart visibility to a brand inside a caf or to add the element of interactivity to a campaign are Posters, Tent Cards, Danglers, Leaflets, Brochures, Coasters, Drop boxes, Contest Forms, Stirrers, Standees etc. Over the years, CCD has successfully promoted a number of brands/products/events through various innovative tactics and promo ideas. Cashing in on its mass captive audience, we at CCD have entered into tie-ups and promotions which are well knit with our brand promise and which can be creatively used to woo the Indian Youth. Corporate Social Responsibility Despite achieving tremendous growth, the company has counted it of utmost priority to contribute success back to our society. Of our many corporate social responsibilities our main attempt has been to create exciting and valuable employment opportunities for the less fortunate and make them as independent as possible.

Our understanding with a known NGO Enable India gives us the opportunity to employee hearing & speech impaired people. The company has also initiated a VOCATIONAL TRAINING COLLEGE that recruits individuals from the less fortunate, remote parts of the state and trains them in a state-of-the-art facility at Chickmaglur. Here they learn about operations & customer service. The training also includes on-the-job training after which the students are provided with full time employment opportunities with Caf Coffee Day.

Conclusi on

Conclusion
The study helped me gain valuable insight in understanding how Customer Relation Management can help in increase sales .The project Customer Relationship Management initiatives to increase sales at Caf Coffee Day has been a knowledge gaining experience. I have been able to understand that designing of promotional activity is an art and it help the company to increase the sales. Awareness about promotional activity is less .Though it has not been advertised at a large on television , still has long way to go before it can catch up with its competitors. I hope my work becomes useful for company.
