This data is unreliable because it comes straight from the customers some can just be an opinion rather than a concrete data.
Statistics – KPI analysis – It shows in the financial data that from 2011 – 2016 the net profit/loss is increasing regardless of the effort done in the company.
Both sources are reliable and important for the company. One was external and one was internal data (Hall, 2017).
Statistics and data – formal
Both formal and informal networks are good source to analyze business problem. Statistic proves the problem and survey and feedback explain the problem (Aithal, 2017).
Productivity has increased after all the trainings made the staff more efficient but the sales trend is still not reaching the projected level. On 2014, there is also a decreasing trend of on sales but on the other hand expenses are decreasing too giving a profit loss having decreasing trends too. On 2015, the sales have been catching up and have an upward trend on sales however the expenses catches up too giving the profit loss high by the end of the year. From financial year 2011-2016, we can see that there is a decreasing sales and an increasing of net profit loss. With all the survey, feedback and statistic we could conclude that 2/3 of the population have been to Coffeeville but they don’t consider Coffeeville as their primary source of it because of its price.

Decision / Issue Name
This report of decision analysis is intended to help address some of the problems that should be addressed in order for companies to resume sales and ensure progressive and good quality indicators to increase their revenue.
Here are a few:
The business needs to reconsider its marketing plan for Coffeeville because the target market should be re-established, it is being proposed due to the current trends around the place and the goal is to take better measures to avoid loss reduction business.
In the last 12 months, the company has seen a decline in revenue from outdoor catering, especially in context to the month of November and month of December. The prices of materials and products like rent, food and wages are rising. As a result, revenue has declined.
In consideration to all the three options, it has decided that the most excellent way to act is through option number 3 (special home packaged and meal delivery system). In this case it is for the most part viable opportunity to solve the issues in the business. The stores are very close to public transport, which may allow people to take away the food before they head home and it is also a considerable option to reduce food wastage and increase the incomes. A marketing plan is necessary to implement this action. It aims to target market, either the office workers or residents of the area.
The first 2 options are not as suitable; they might solve some issues but in less percentage.
