    The Goldilocks Fairytale

    Once upon a time in 1966, two sisters, Milagros and Clarita and their sister-in-law Doris, decided to open a small bakeshop along Pasong Tamo 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”: though hard work, dedication, and an uncompromising commitment to total customer satisfaction, Goldilocks is now the largest Filipino-owned bakeshop chain in the world. As a true global brand, it has expanded to more than 420 stores in the Philippines and overseas markets, and now employs a workforce of over 2,000 people. Likewise, the opening day total sales of P574 back in 1966 has multiplied thousands of times over.

    Perhaps more impressively, generations of Filipinos consider Goldilocks not only as a brand, but a time-honored family tradition. Now celebrating its 47th year, Goldilocks continues to strengthen its position as a genuine Filipino Icon.

    Chapter 5
    RECOMMENDED/PROPOSED MARKETING STRATEGY/STRATEGIES USING MARKETING MIX SALES ANALYSIS:

    Regulators use fiscal and monetary policy tools to try to create an economy with these conditions. Economic conditions abroad, and regulators’ reactions to them, also influence whether an economy can achieve a Goldilocks state. This state is ideal for investing, because as companies grow, stocks perform well, and in the absence of inflation, bonds will hold their value. If GDP grows too quickly and inflation creeps up too quickly, however, the economy can overheat and a bust can result. While business cycles vary in intensity and duration, the U.S. economy typically goes through five phases as part of the business cycle: growth/expansion, peak, recession/contraction, trough and recovery. A Goldilocks economy may occur during the recovery and/or growth phases. The U.S. economy of the mid- to late-1990s was considered a Goldilocks economy because it was “not too hot, not too cold, but just right.” This term has also been used to describe the economy as it recovered from the tech bubble burst in 2003–2004 and as it expanded in 2013 after the housing bubble burst in 2008. Because we have business cycles, a Goldilocks economy should be considered a temporary state.

    CONCLUSION/ACTION PLAN

    Among the leading bakeshops in the Philippines, Goldilocks owned about 70 percent market share. The largest segment of the business-cakes-attained an all-time high of 74 percent market share. Red Ribbon was Goldilocks’ closest competitor with a 14 percent market share. Red Ribbon also had a bakeshop and a foodshop line parallel to Goldilocks. Red Ribbon has a 15 percent price premium over Goldilocks cakes. In 1995, Goldilocks sought its customers and asked them about images and memories of Goldilocks in focused group discussions (FGDs). According to research, an important Filipino value that typifies Goldilocks’ customers, that of being maalalahanin (thoughtful). Maalalahanin goes beyond the literal translation of being thoughtful. It could be understood as: to remember, to go out of one’s way, to be close and intimate, to be a close friend. Goldilocks understood that it was not enough to offer good tasting products to become a successful bakeshop. There was a need to develop relationships between buyers of Goldilocks’ product and the intended statement, “How thoughtful. How Goldilocks.” This has become associated with the Goldilocks name and logo.
