The shares in the company have increased drastically since it is among the most popular soft drinks in America.

The company is rooted to the media as the primary basis of reaching its target market. The company advertises on popular TV shows and health magazines.

The company slogan will be “Energize Me, With You Every Step of the Way.”

The company will introduce an umbrella extension called “Energize Me Umbarelo” to help popularize the brand during rainy seasons and to offer shades in outdoor events and retailing.

Feasibility Study

Research shows that soft drinks are increasingly in demand across the world. The fact that the drinks are carbonated hence can stay for long without getting bad is an added advantage to soft drinks. More sales are projected in the near future due to the shortage of supply. Producers of soft drinks are fewer than can meet global demand. However, new entrants will appear in the future to fill the gap currently witnessed. These market studies only point towards the growth of soft drinks. There is little fear that the market for soft drinks will decline. Energize Me, therefore, has a huge potential to exploit the market at least for now that the supply is low.
