Extracts from this document...

Introduction

P1 Tuesday, 25 June 2002 Sam George Types of Ownership The Odeon Cinemas i. The Odeon cinemas are all over the country they are involved in the showing of films and have been sold and bought many times, they sell food and drink in all of the cinemas and they are very popular. They are continually increasing their sale price. The company is a private limited company; the advantage of this is that they area able to sell shares to friends families or people that they want to sell the shares to, although they do not sell their shares on the stock exchange.

P4 The Odeon cinemas are all located in busy town centres this is so that they can attract more customers, mainly teenagers. This is because teenagers go in to town often and they will discover the cinema. The Odeon influences on this location is that it is right in the centre of town so it is easy for the general public to, there is also no other competition in Maidstone so they know that they will survive. Johnson's chose their locations, (which are all over the U.K) because they are always people in a town that need a certain item of clothes specially cleaned, and there are not many other businesses that offer a dry clean service. There is not much competition as not many dry cleaning companies are in the U.k. P5 The stakeholders of each business are ...read more.
