SpendEdge’s Cost Analysis Strategies Helped a Gourmet Food Store Improve Business Efficiency by 20%

Nov 8, 2018

Need for a Cost Analysis Template

A cost analysis template is the most fundamental tool for conducting a cost analysis on the potential business decisions. By following suitable cost analysis methods, an organization will be in a healthier position to avoid potential biases that lead to faulty business decisions. However, the use of a flawed model can prove to be an expensive misstep in any industry. A cost analysis template can help examine both direct and indirect spend categories, including tax, facility expansion costs, outsourcing fee, annual recurring cost, and related expenses.

Gourmet Food Industry Overview

Over the past few years, the type of foods consumed by the global population has undergone a massive transformation. The rising demand for gourmet foods, urbanization, increasing disposable income, and a surge in economic growth have greatly impacted the maturity of the gourmet food market. However, certain challenges are sure to affect the profit margins of every gourmet food store and they will have to be wary of such developments to stay a step ahead of their peers. With that being said, let’s look at a couple of challenges that gourmet food stores face:

  • Doorstep services – The rising popularity of new community-sourced and ready-to-eat meal solutions poses a huge challenge for traditional gourmet food stores.
  • Increasing health awareness: Customers across countries are now focused on improving health and wellness, and as a result, they are increasingly leveraging gourmet food to effectively manage and avoid health issues. This has both positively and negatively impacted the gourmet food segment by paving the way for new opportunities as well as challenges.
