Fabletics-Moving Forward

In a market where Amazon dominates 20% of the market, Fabletics has managed to become a $250 million dollar company that continues to expand by 35% every year. Fabletics has become successful for many reasons. They offer a service that can be personalized to suit the needs and wants of their customers and they also offer a very convenient way to shop.

 

Fabletics has taken the time to grow and has gotten to know their markets through events and activities in communities. They have not been affected by people shopping online and then buying their items at a lower price because they already offer a low price and purchases made in-store or online both count towards their shopping cart purchases. They also get customers (30-50% to be exact) that come in their stores that are already members and another 25% that become members in-store. When a new member signs up with Fabletics, they are encouraged to take a Lifestyle Quiz that helps the company to match them up with the perfect outfit options. It also gives valuable information to the company so that they know what is in demand and what will be a good new design choice.

 

Kate Hudson keeps an eye on what is happening with her company and if an item doesn’t sell she will pull it from her collection to make room for items that will sell better. Hudson has also recently expanded her sizes to include XXS to 3X. Hudson wants to encourage everyone to become more active and to live a healthier lifestyle. Hudson is continuously adding new collections and she is staying very hands-on. The data collected from the Lifestyle Quizzes helps tremendously in determining what to design and what is just not going to be very popular. She builds on that in order to keep t=her clothing fresh and trendy.

 

Hudson gets a lot of her inspiration form her mom, Goldie Hawn, and is part of her Hawn Foundation, which helps to teach mindfulness to children. Hudson believes that it is important to follow your passion and to make the most of life. She also believes that it is important to take risks and to stay connected. Hudson wants to keep her company alive and exciting and feels that her brand is unlike other companies in many ways because she’s connected and is striving to give her customers what they want.

OSI Group Continues Its Expansion

One of their latest acquisition is the Baho Foods. In the last 50 years of their existence, the OSI Group under the leadership of Sheldon Lavin has managed to grow through the acquisitions of other companies. Where this technique cannot work, the OSI Group usually results to mergers. Baho Foods is a European food company operating in Netherlands and Germany.

The OSI Group is known for refusing to disclose the financial details of this acquisition, but it’s estimated to be worth hundreds of millions as Baho Foods had established their roots in Europe through five subsidiaries. These subsidiaries are now owned by the OSI Group, and they include Henri van de Bilt, Q Smart Life as well as Gelderland Frischwaren. The other two subsidiaries are Bakx Foods and Vital Convenience. Asked about the fate of employees from this company, the chief executive officer of OSI Group said that they would retain their jobs. As for the managing executives, they would integrate with new managers that will be sent from the USA.

When it comes to the food industry, success hinges on one thing which is how well a company understands the local culture. This may perhaps be the reason why the OSI Group prefers maintaining local employees and management. Having been operational since 1909, the OSI Group has built a reputation for offering the best meat products across the globe. Their products are sold in more than 17 countries that include Germany, Netherlands, Japan, United States and Canada. Their products are also sold in China, United Kingdom, France, and Italy. These products include the likes of vegetable products, beef products, dough products and not forgetting poultry products.

OSI Group is owned by Sheldon Lavin who acquired this company in the late 1970s. Sheldon Lavin was a banker before venturing into the food industry. Up to date, he has managed to employ around 20,000 people across the globe. A recent report by the Forbes magazine revealed that the OSI Group had an annual revenue of around $6 billion making it the 58th largest privately owned company in the world. Aurora, Illinois houses the headquarters of this great company.
