How to build a winning range! “It’s our choices, Harry, that show who we truly are…” JK Rowling
The ‘6 immutable laws of ranging’ • Less is More • Consumers on average look at 5-6 brands before making up their mind • Ranges are independent • Most consumers have already decided on the format of drink wanted and so will not consider other formats. Dual stock brands if they brand merit consideration in both draught and packaged • Consumers can be tempted • Less than half consumers have pre-determined brand choices and so can be tempted to trade up if interesting options are available • Width not depth • With only 5-6 brands to range a bar needs to appeal to a wide selection of occasions and consumer needs. • Don’t range multiple brands that have heavily overlapping brand profile • Balance in everything • While low awareness brands deliver excitement for some, they deliver fear for others and all consumers look for the comfort of familiarity at some occasions • A place for everything and everything in its place • Consider your range on a holistic basis – don’t include brands which jar with everything else or consumers will wonder why they are included • Source: TNS Magasin, On Trade Research, May 2010, Cardinal Research, On Trade Ranging, March 2011
A question: How important is getting the range right? • When going into an outlet… • 19% • were open to influence – e.g. Any drink • 48% • of consumers knew the exact drink they wanted – e.g. Pint of Peroni • 33% • knew the type/format of drink they wanted – e.g. Bottled Lager • …and 97% of people got the type of drink they wanted. • So 52% are open to influence from the range • Source: TNS Magasin May 2010
Less is More • In our sample, the bars averaged 15lager founts available • Consumers looked at an average of 6 before making their decision! • Outlets have to ensure an acceptable offering in just 6 brands! • Source: TNS Magasin, On Trade Research, May 2010
Ranges are independent • When entering an outlet,… • 48% • of consumers knew the exact drink they wanted – e.g. Pint of Peroni • 33% • knew the type/format of drink they wanted – e.g. Bottled Lager • 19% • were open to influence – e.g. Any drink • Over 80% of consumers have pre-chosen the format of drink before entering a bar and so will not look at other ranges – • Dual Stock brands which deliver in both formats • Source: TNS Magasin, On Trade Research, May 2010
Balance in everythingWe asked consumers to look at different ranges • Regular, familiar and big selling major brands • Well known big brands, but width more width • Some smaller brands brought in and standard lager removed • Some well known premium brands, allied to less known • Low awareness smaller interesting brands • Source: Cardinal – May 2011
Width not depth • Offer your consumers a ranges of different choices, instead of brands that play similar roles. • Try to offer brands from as many different groupings as relevant • Offer consumers width not depth of choice

PERONI NASTRO AZZURRO and CLOC London Team Meeting 14th October 2013
THE TRUTH ABOUT WHY THEY DRINK PERONI: URBANITES SAY THEY DRINK PERONI BECAUSE OF THE TASTE, BUT IN REALITY CONSIDERATION IS LARGELY DRIVEN BY DELIVERY, WHERE IT IS STOCKED AND WHO IS SEEN DRINKING IT Distribution Delivery I didn’t drink it when I was younger. It was when I started working, and going to nicer places that I started to see it in cool bars and classy restaurants Bristol, Boys The label is really sophisticated and it comes in a cool glass. That’s really important to me, If ever they give me Peroni in a generic pint glass, I die a little bit inside London, Boys Targeting Advertising I see quite a lot of advertising for Peroni on the tube recently. It’s a woman with sunglasses on in front of a white background. It’s very classy London, Girls The thing with Peroni is that you only see young, trendy professionals drinking it. That’s what makes it a cool choice Edinburgh, Boys CLOC is ensures 2 of the key drivers behind consumption of Peroni
