Hypermarket and Supermarket

“I was introduced to Appleton Greene by a friend and colleague who was already a Certified Learning Provider. I found the program very well structured and a great deal of thought had been put into every aspect of it. The attention to detail was apparent throughout and this theme was also reflected in the way that support was provided. I had access to a team of professional mentors, rather than just one and although they worked within very structured guidelines, they each had individual perspectives, which made the program all the more enjoyable and rewarding. I loved the fact that specialist consultants were also involved and that clients took an active interest too. I remember when I was doing my MBA, the most exciting days, when I was the most switched on, were when we had guest speakers or workshop managers who had commercial experience and were invited to do a presentation or take part in some of our workshops. This was far more engaging and rewarding than the academic process. This theme is embraced wholeheartedly by Appleton Greene as you have access to a wide variety of specialist consultants, located all over the world, all with different service and industry experience and it is invaluable to be able to use these resources when facilitating the implementation of your programs with clients.”

Hypermarkets & Supermarkets

Global supermarket food products sales are predicted to generate revenue in excess of $1.70 trillion, according to research from Global Industry Analysts. Market growth has been driven by the rising importance of consumerism. Since supermarkets first appeared in the US, they have been rolled out all over the globe, with supermarket chains securing their place at the top of the world’s retail chain. Due to the effects of the economic recession, the number of consumer visits to supermarkets has fallen over recent years. However, average spends-per-visit have risen due to a trend that has seen consumers shy away from dining out in restaurants in favor of purchasing prepared food in supermarkets to eat at home. The global hypermarket industry has witnessed changes in recent years. Faced with the obstacle of stricter legislation on expansion, superstore retailers have sought different formats, using in-store services, downsizing stores, and promoting click and collect services. This has lead to a new approach to large format grocery stores, encouraging business to diversifying in terms of the services offered to consumers, reports Verdict. While the traditional hypermarket format is losing popularity in established markets, the big-box format has yet to reach its growth potential in emerging markets.

“With any consultancy or training service, the first thing that I always look for is key performance indicators. This provides me with the comfort of knowing that what I am purchasing is worthwhile. The attractive thing about Appleton Greene’s programs and services is that KPIs are an integral part of service delivery. This enables you to see precisely what will be achieved during each module and upon completion. It takes the decision-making process out of the decision.”
