Our client, a global manufacturer of branded consumer foods, wanted to test a Mexican food kit that offered a fresh spin on the traditional market offering. They needed to better understand whether customers at a big box retailer would find this new idea enticing. The main research questions included:

  • What specifically do customers like or dislike about the kit?

The GroupSolver® team had 24 hours to answer these questions and provide actionable insights in time for the meeting with the buyer.
