Conclusion

The main purpose of having this is so that people are able to buy the things they need all from one store and not go to others to buy different types as it would be much harder if everything was separate. It also supplies different ethic foods depending on the area that they are situated in. Tesco is also in the Growth sector and it is still growing, this is because many people to there to buy there goods that they will never run out of money. Tesco is an international company that is situated in many parts of the world allowing other people to shop at there store. This is making them much more popular in name and attracting more other people to buy goods from them. Tesco also has 205+ people working for them which means it is a large company. More jobs are invented everyday to make life easier at Tesco therefore it is still growing due to this situation. However they both do have some similarities such as; they are both in growth and still growing and they provide the public with goods. Another similarity Is that Tesco is a Public Limited Company and the Cadbury Farm is also one. This means that they are the largest type of business and they don't close down until they have no money left to keep the company going as it is stably. ?? ?? ?? ??
