Choose two countries (not Turkey or Sweden) in which the company does business and research target markets. Consider if there are culturally prescribed dietary restrictions (such as dairy products, red meat, shellfish, or pork).
Research traditional menu choices in the country (this may be accomplished by an internet search).
Provide rationale for at least three regional menu items per country.
Information for this section should come from a reputable source. The World Factbook https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/ (maintained by the CIA) is a good place to start. Another government site, U.S. Department of State’s country information, also links to embassies. The use of government-maintained websites adds to the credibility of the information presented https://www.state.gov/countries-visited-and-mileage-2018/. Supplement the government research with articles from the library’s full-text databases. Steer away from reference books like encyclopedias or dictionaries and focus on information from periodicals. Do not copy and paste tables from sources.
Since you are engaging in research, be sure to cite and reference your sources in APA format. Your paper should be written in the third person; this means words like “I,” “we,” and “you” are not appropriate. For more information, see Differences Between First and Third Person. NOTE: failure to use the specific, required research with accompanying citations will result in reduced scoring (no higher than 75%) for all components of the grading rubric.
