Name An Event: Eagles Game
Name A Supply Chain For This Event: Food and Beverage – Aramark
Name A Way The Supply Chain Could Be Negatively Affected: The food and beverage supply chain could potentially be negatively affected at an Eagles game due to food shortage along with spike of prices at the stadium.
If This Supply Chain Were To Be Affected, How Could You Overcome The Situation? If the food and beverage supply chain at an Eagles game was affected negatively, for the future, Aramark could potentially look into where there seem to be delays and shortages. In order to “be proactive and avoid the threat to a successful [event]” the food and beverage supply chain must know in advance where they tend to find themselves lacking in order to avoid negative affects. If the supplier (Aramark in this case) knows exactly what food there would be shortages on at around what time, the margin for error will decrease. In order to overcome a food shortage situation, back up options that are available should headline. For example, if old bay fries are out of stock, you could offer cheese fries with free extra cheese or a hot dog with a free small fry in order to make a profit and make the customers happy.
Taste of Chicago is a popular event that shuts down the streets of Chicago to display and serve some of the most popular Chicago foods. Taste of Chicago is supplied by food trucks and food tents. Taste of Chicago relies on the supply chain of transportation of raw materials. The supply chain of transportation could include trucks, airplanes, boats, trains, etc. These transportation methods are responsible for delivering the food trucks the raw materials needed to make the food they serve at the event. If this supply chain was negatively affected and transportation came to a halt, the food trucks would not be able to receive the raw materials needed to make food for the event. To overcome this challenge, the food trucks could get raw materials from the grocery store or other local vendors instead of their usual providers. Although this would not be cost effective or in bulk, it would save the event from being without food.
Name An Event: Wawa’s Hoagiefest
Name A Supply Chain For This Event: Deli meat
Name A Way The Supply Chain Could Be Negatively Affected: Meat is notorious for being recalled and having issues with bacteria, as we have seen with Chipotle and how they’ve had e.coli outbreaks with their ground beef. Although Wawa uses deli meats, there is always the risk that the meat can become contaminated in the packaging plants before they’re even sliced at the deli. Deli meats are also something that pregnant women are told to avoid or limit their intake, so if there is an e.coli outbreak for example, then it gives pregnant women more of an incentive to avoid deli meats all together. Deli meats are also the star of Wawa’s Hoagiefest, so with no meats, there’s a big part of Hoagiefest out of commission.
If This Supply Chain Were To Be Affected, How Could You Overcome The Situation?: I would overcome this situation by advertising the other products that Wawa has to offer. Wawa has a plethora of other food options such as quesadillas, soups, macaroni and cheese, and even burrito bowls. If it’s before Hoagiefest were to start, the discussion of possibly holding off on Hoagiefest could be brought up. Sure, the advertisements have been made, but people would rather wait for safe food to eat rather than run the risk of becoming sick. If the recall on certain deli meats were to occur DURING Hoagiefest, we could push the other hoagies that don’t contain deli meat. Wawa has tuna and chicken salad as well as a veggie option for Hoagies. They also have chicken tenders if someone wanted some form of meat. There are multiple other hoagie options to combat the sudden recall of deli meat, which is what makes Wawa so flexible and able to please customers when there’s an issue.
Name An Event: A concert at the Lincoln Financial Field
Name A Supply Chain For This Event: A supply chain for this event is “Philadelphia Cheesesteak”.
Name A Way The Supply Chain Could Be Negatively Affected: This supply chain could be negatively affected if there is a recall on the meat they serve because of an outbreak such as E. Coli. This would cause them to not be able to serve any of their meat products.
If This Supply Chain Were To Be Affected, How Could You Overcome The Situation?: They could overcome this situation by making sure to be staying up to date on the global news so that they are informed about the outbreak as soon as possible and can make accommodations, such as using a different brand of meat for the time being. It would be beneficial to also post a flyer for all of the customers to see that explains the situation so that they can either decide to still purchase the product or go somewhere else. This would save the supplier from an excess of customer complaints if it does not taste the same as usual. It might also be beneficial to offer a special deal to customers for the inconvenience.
