NO CHANGES CAN BE MADE TO CASE WITHOUT COMPANY APPROVALIn this, the second of a two-part case series, the SVEDKA founder assesses which initial decisions were most critical in the launch of his now-successful product. He also explores the new choices he faces, including changes to the distribution channels and additions to the product line. Suitable for both MBA- and undergraduate-level courses such as integrated marketing communications, the case presents opportunities to discuss pricing, target, distribution, branding, and promotion.
