Charlemagne was crowned by the Pope and pronounced him as the successor to Constantine. The scenario was the first attempt to establish the Holy Roman Empire. • Charlemagne’s death caused Europe to break into small units isolated from each other and from the world. • Moslem controlled the Mediterranean and the Vikings, still pagans, conquered the northern seas.

Early Middle Ages

• Life was relatively simple. • Feudalistic patterns were fully established. ➢ Manor (large estate)- headed by a noble man, assumed absolute authority over the peasants who worked his land collectively. ➢ Vassals – supplies the lords a specified number of knights upon demand and the lords in return were bound to protect their vassals.

The Theater (500- 900 AD)

...QUALITATIVE - OBSERVATION - RECOMMENDATIONS Store Inside/ Outside From the outside, the store is very attractive because it displays its cakes and pastries which look very delicious. And when you enter, inside the store is clean but the space is limited. You have to fall in line when choosing what to buy, then you have to fall in line again to pay for your order, it is because of the limited space. Even the tables and chairs are placed close to each other. If expanding the store is inconvenient, then maximizing the space and organizing the store should be their priority. Order-Taking In taking our orders, the crews of Goldilocks are not that accommodating. They are snob because they did not even ask us what we would like to order as an additional to our prior order. They simply input what we order then that’s it. They are very mechanical. Even the security guard, he looks so tired of what he does. Another thing is that they have a lot of counters but only one counter is open. They must manifest some hospitality as what the Filipinos are best known. They must also hire more people to satisfy or serve their customer properly and for them to always have open counters especially during peak hours. Dining Experience Because of the limited space, it makes difficult for us to sit and place all our orders on our table, not because we ordered a lot but because the table was small. But the overall dining experience was good. The service personnel are all helpful. One......

...CRISIS-MANAGEMENT PRACTICES OF MANAGERS OF SMALL- SCALE FOOD SERVICE ESTABLISHMENTS IN LEGAZPI CITY A Research Proposal Presented to the Faculty of Divine Word College of Legazpi Graduate School, Legazpi City In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements of the Course, Research Methods GEM BARRAMEDA MBA Student March, 2013 Chapter I The Problem and Its Setting Introduction Crisis management is the process by which an organization deals with a major event that threatens to harm the organization, its stakeholders, or the general public. The study of crisis management originated with the large scale industrial and environmental disasters in 1980s. Three elements are common to most definitions of crisis: (a) a threat to the organization, (b) the element of surprise, and (c) a short decision time. Venette argues that "crisis is a process of transformation where the old system can no longer be maintained." Therefore the fourth defining quality is the need for change. If change is not needed, the event could more accurately be described as a failure or incident (Success Hints and Tips: Don Miller & Associates, Healthcare Food Service Directors Adjust Their Management Style in Order To Win, 2005). In contrast to risk management, which involves assessing potential threats and finding the best......

Goldilocks History

...Goldilocks was first opened in 1966 as a family business and started in a one-door apartment of a two-story structure on Pasong Tamo Street, Makati City. It has established 192 branches throughout the islands. Two young women, sisters Milagros Leelin Yee and Clarita Leelin Go, now affectionately known by everyone else in the business as "The Two Moms", started the original Filipino Goldilocks, buoyed by the compliments they received on their home baking, particularly the fabulous cakes they took to their friends and relatives on every occasion. Along with their sister-in-law, Doris, started this team long before there was a bakeshop. They decided to open a small bakeshop along to the Pasong Tamo Street, Makati. The sisters have already been dabbling in the business for some time ---Milagros, by supplying chiffon slices to a number of Manila’s canteens, and Clarita, by baking and decorating cakes during special occasions in Bicol --- when they decided to take their hobby one step further. They began in the family kitchen, with their family as their first "customer." And when they decided to open a full-fledged bakeshop, another sister suggested the name Goldilocks. The fairy tale character, they agreed, seemed to suggest luck. On the first day of operation, all Goldilocks products were sold out. It had a little to do with luck, of course, Goldilocks' brazo de mercedes, sansrival, marble and butter slices, among other bestseller goodies, were sold just as fast they could bake...

...I. SUMMARY Goldilocks Bakeshop, Inc. started as a family business and has been experiencing great success since starting in 1966 by expanding by over 60 outlets by 1997. As Goldilocks grew, the family realized that its management ability would be limited. In 1995, the company hired ex–San Miguel executive, Mr. Winston Marbella, to professionalized the company and bring it to market leadership. For Goldilocks, product development had become an important feature of the company. The company had over 800 products and its business could be classified into two major categories: The Bakeshop, offering cakes, pastries, breads, and native delicacies; and The Food shop, serving Filipino main food fare and desserts. Goldilocks is dominating the bakeshop industry by having a huge market share of about 70% while its closest competitor Red Ribbon was a distant second with about a 14% market share. Expansion and marketing strategy for the future was on the minds of Goldilocks management like increasing retail outlets and opening stores outside of Metro Manila. Goldilocks did not just stop there, but they set a goal to at least get 30% revenue growth every year for the next three years which could be difficult considering the economic environment after the recent Asian regional crisis.

...What is the definition of a crisis? According to a crisis would be a sequence of events at which the trend of all future events, especially for better or for worse, is determined; turning point (crisis, n.d.). A crisis can hit a company anytime and it does not discriminate because of size or notoriety. The best thing a company should have is a plan of action prepared in an advance, a crisis management plan. The Triad Group apparently did not have a crisis management plan in place as the problems started to sneak up, the company felt pressured and fell apart. According to Rick Amme, who heads the crisis and media relations firm Amme & Associates, Inc., there are five stages of scandal. The Triad Group went through all five stages until the United States Marshals, arrived at the door to seize the products and shut them down (Amme, 2004). Could have The Triad Group avoided such a big scandal? Maybe not as the problems had started awhile back but what if the company had followed protocols. The first stage was no comment. Throughout the recalls and seizing of the products the Triad executives and spokesperson would decline to comment on the situation. Although the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) commented that the seizing of the products was to prevent the company from distributing any more products, Triad did not come forward. The best thing that the company could have done was to communicate throughout the crisis. Johnson and Johnson is such company after......

Goldilocks & the Three Bears: Summary

...Goldilocks & The Three Bears: Summary The adapted version of Goldilocks and The Three Bears by Heidi Anne Heiner takes place in the middle of the woods where three bears live. The story starts off by introducing the bears as the protagonist characters by describing them as “good Bears — a little rough or so, as the manner of Bears is, but for all that very good-natured and hospitable” (Heiner). One day they decided to make porridge and go out for a walk to give it time to cool. As they are gone, Goldilocks, a naughty little girl, enters the bears’ home. Goldilocks then goes on to try each one of the three bears’ porridge. She ends up finishing all of the littlest bears porridge because it is not to hot or cold, but “just right”. Next she sees the bears’ chairs and decides to try out each one of their chairs. She ends up liking the littlest bear’s chair the best, but unfortunately ends up breaking it. She finally feels tired and then goes upstairs to lie down. She tries each bed and ends up falling asleep in the littlest bear’s bed. The bears come back and find that their house has been tampered with. They go through each item and talk about how there is something wrong with their stuff. Then once they reach the beds, the littlest bear finds Goldilocks in his bed and Goldilocks wakes up to quickly run out the window. The author does not explain exactly what happens to Goldilocks after this, but she is never seen or heard from again. Authentic Variant......

Goldilocks Bakeshop, Inc.

...Street in Makati. A third sister, Maria Flor, suggested that they name the enterprise “Goldilocks“, after the character in a fairy tale. The intention was to make it easier for children and their mothers to remember the bakeshop’s name, and also because it suggested luck and prosperity. Little did the founders know that this “Once Upon a Time” would flourish into a real-life “Happily Ever After”: through hard work, dedication, and an uncompromising commitment to total customer satisfaction, Goldilocks is now the largest Filipino-owned bakeshop chain in the world. Being the leading Quick Service Restaurant in the Filipino Food Category as well, the company has expanded to more than 350 stores in the Philippines, with nine manufacturing plants strategically located across the country. Consequently, the opening day total sales of P574 back in 1966 has multiplied thousands of times over, reaching system-wide sales of over P6 billion as of latest financial records. Perhaps more impressively, generations of Filipinos consider Goldilocks not only as a brand, but a time-honored family tradition. Now approaching its 50th year, Goldilocks continues to strengthen its position as a genuine Filipino Icon. Indeed, with each product you buy, you are not merely getting a delicious slice of cake or a scrumptious dish – you get a taste of something truly Pinoy. And while it is clear that Goldilocks has transcendent brand value in the Philippines, this same value is easily communicated...

Environmental Concerns of Goldilocks

...and Background Most Filipinos consider Goldilocks not only a brand, but also a Filipino Institution. In fact its popular tagline, "How thoughtful, how Goldilocks" has evolved over the years into "How thoughtful, how Pinoy (colloquial for 'Filipino')", and later to "Ang sarap magmahal ng Pinoy!” embracing a culture and tradition that goes beyond the name. Now, on its 47th year, Goldilocks further highlights its position as the leading bakeshop brand in the Philippines with its new tagline, "You're the 1, Goldilocks!” Goldilocks traces its roots to the collaboration and complementary talents of the women, whose collective love for good food fueled what has been transformed into the global enterprise today. Their love of food, two sisters, Milagros and Clarita and their sister-in-law Doris, gave birth to Goldilocks in the year 1996, when they decided to open a small bakeshop along Pasong Tamo Street in Makati. Maria Flor, a third sister, later suggested that they name the enterprise "Goldilocks", after the character in a fairy tale. The intention was to make it easier for children and their mothers to remember the bakeshop's name, and also because it suggested luck and prosperity.  Now on its 47th year, Goldilocks remains that company and more.
