How is KPMG helping an international food retailer expand their footprint?

A UK-based company in the retail sector, with presence in 350 locations, came to KPMG for assistance on site selection during its ambitious expansion program. Aggressive timelines for international expansion made the need for intelligent site selection critical. To further complicate the challenge, new stores were being planned in unfamiliar new geographies and locations where the company lacked firsthand business experience.

By looking across more than 6,500 different data ‘signals’ – including local demand drivers and sales indicators – the company was able to create accurate estimates of customer demand. Based on this data, the KPMG team was able to provide an exceptionally clear picture of how any potential location will perform - from start-up to any timeframe of days, weeks and months over a three-year period.

The client selected KPMG for our deep experience in the market. We were able to demonstrate an understanding and practical application of sophisticated analytics techniques such as Advanced Clustering Algorithms.

Supported by KPMG in the UK’s ‘Always-On’ solutions (which listen to internal and external signals that can be translated into new insights on local markets and people), the organisation recognised that KPMG’s approach would allow them to rigorously test new locations before investing significant capital.

Ultimately, the retailer was able to improve the return on their new store investments. In the future, they will have the capability to develop a new, improved and highly accurate forecasting, replenishment ordering and labour scheduling system.
