Benchmarking Against the High StreetWritten by Shamari Steele
We’re delighted to announce that we are updating the 2016 research which benchmarked our members’ selling prices against the high street. The survey will look at universities and colleges where the catering and retails services are in-house and outsourced across a range of outlets and will take into consideration the size and type of university and college.
Our research provider, The Litmus Partnership, will compare this information to members, high street chains and independent outlets in different parts of the UK. A relational database will be created to store the information which will allow members to interrogate the data using live tables with the ability to update and maintain the information and create bespoke reports.
Last year we had over 50 members complete the survey which provided a very robust sample and it would be great to meet or exceed this. As an incentive, members who complete the survey will automatically be entered into a competition to win an iPad mini. The winner will be selected at random when the survey closes.
The survey is now open and will close on 24th February 2017 at 1700 hours.
