Fast Food Chains That Are Struggling To Stay In Business

Even though we seem to have an endless amount of choices when it comes to our fast food dollars, it's hard to ignore the fact that some fast food chains are struggling to stay in business. It might be a big misconception that fast food restaurants rake in the big bucks with all of their offerings that are designed to entice hungry folk into gobbling up their tasty offerings, but the sad reality is that a lot of them are working hard to figure out how to stay afloat. Fast food companies try everything from appealing to meme-loving audiences on social media to promoting free product days to entice hungry customers to come for a freebie and stay for a meal. But which of these promotions actually work? And how many of these promotions are actually getting people to come back after the deals have expired?

It might surprise you to learn that it's not just the smaller guys that are struggling in this economy and that major names like Burger King, Subway, and Papa Johns are racking their brains to find out ways to retain their customer bases. You might have seen some of these companies doing more and more outlandish things in the name of drumming up more business for themselves, only to end up damaging their own brands or just falling flat on their fast food franchise faces. Let's line up and take a look at why some of these famous fast food joints are facing big problems and how they're trying to solve them.

The Real Reason Subway Is Disappearing Across The Country

If you're new, Subscribe! →

When is the last time you stopped at a Subway? If it's been a while, you might not be surprised to learn that 2017 was not a good time for the chain that's been banking on their Eat fresh image to get customers through the door. It was only in late 2017 that franchisees found out that business had fallen 25 percent since 2012, and stores were shutting their doors. CNN reported that in 2016, Subway closed 359 locations, and 2017 was even worse. According to Business Insider, that year saw Subway closing another 909 stores across the US, which accounts for about three percent of their domestic footprint. So, it's not entirely surprising there's a lot going on behind the scenes at Subway, and their problems are way more complicated than you might think. So, why did your neighborhood Subway close?

The Rise And Fall Of Hooters Air

You might not remember it, but at one point Hooters had an airline. Hooters Air launched in 2003, but closed about three years later. The company cited a number of reasons for the airline's failure, including a $40 million loss. But in the short time that Hooters Air existed, it made a major economic impact on one city in particular — Myrtle Beach, South Carolina — that's where the airline was headquartered, and where it brought thousands of tourists every week.

We talked to people who worked for Hooters Air — flight attendants and one pilot (who asked to remain anonymous). They told us what it was really like to work for the airline (which featured two Hooters Girls on every flight) and dispelled some common misperceptions about what it was like to fly it. Hooters declined to comment for this story.

The Rise And Fall Of Forever 21

At its peak, Forever 21 made $4.4 billion in revenue and was one of the fastest-growing fast fashion empires. Now, the retailer is preparing to file for bankruptcy after alienating its core customers and struggling to keep up with the rise of e-commerce. As one of the largest tenants of American malls, a large-scale shutdown of Forever 21's stores could exacerbate the ongoing retail apocalypse.

Little Caesars - The Rise and Fall...And Rise Again

Little Caesars is traditionally one of the four largest pizza chains and in my opinion, they do a good job in separating themselves from the others. They're the cheapest AND the fastest, which is especially important for a fast food chain. But from the early 1990's to the mid 2000's, they had some major troubles. This video profiles their rise to popularity, their decline during those years, and how they brought it all back.

How Starbucks Became An $80B Business

In its 47-year history, Starbucks has transformed from a single coffee bean store in Seattle to a 30,000 cafe international coffee power house. But massive expansion hasn't come without growing pains.

It's no secret that Starbucks has been struggling to get U.S. customers to frequent its cafes more often. While sales have been positive, the number of customer visits continues to stagnate.

Same-store sales, a key metric in the restaurant industry, have dwindled over the last 12 months as competition heated up and customers were uninspired by some of Starbucks' limited-time offerings. While comparable-store sales exceeded expectations in the fourth quarter that ended Sept. 30, rising 4 percent, much of that was due Starbucks charging more for its lattes.

Under the careful watch of Howard Schultz, Starbucks pursued a strategy of aggressive expansion in the late '80s and early '90s. By the time the company went public in 1992, it had 165 stores.

Four years later, Starbucks opened its 1,000th location, including international cafes in Japan and Singapore. Growth was so rapid that, just two years later, Starbucks opened its 2,000th cafe.

While unit expansion helped boost sales throughout the last two decades — Starbucks has had positive same-store sales growth since 2010 — the company has now spread itself too thin.

With more than 14,000 locations in the United States alone today, Starbucks has cannibalized its own sales. The company is regrouping and rethinking its expansion. It is expected to shutter 150 underperforming locations in 2019, three times the amount it typically does.

Compounding its problems are changing consumer preferences, an issue CEO Kevin Johnson has addressed with investors. People are shying away from sugar-laden calorie bombs, which happen to be one of Starbucks' staples. In 2015, sales of Frappuccinos were 14 percent of Starbucks revenue. However, in the first half of 2018, Frappucino sales were down 3 percent — and accounted for only about 11 percent of the company's revenue.

Making matters worse, Frappuccino sales also were hurt by a lack of innovation, analysts said.

The Rise And Fall Of Macy's

Macy’s was once the largest department store in the world. But its size is now a burden. It’s closing stores and rethinking its strategy going into its most critical period of the year.

Macy's is testing smaller stores to slash expenses on staffing and inventory. Currently, the department store chain is trying the idea at four locations, including at Stamford Town Center in Connecticut, to cut its real estate by as much as a fifth there and turn those shops into neighborhood stores. It mimics similar initiatives already taken by rivals Kohl's and Nordstrom. Kohl's is dividing some of its bigger stores to allow room for new tenants like grocer Aldi, while Nordstrom is trying a small-shop concept known as Nordstrom Local in Los Angeles. Even mall operators like Macerich are looking at store space in a new way, rolling out stores that showcase a number of brands for a short period.

If your store is too big and your dollars per square feet are too low and you can't lease the space to someone else, then you've got to hive off a floor, Macy's CEO Jeff Gennette told the Journal in an interview. If we were building stores today, we'd build them smaller.

Not needing so many locations — and with some being unprofitable — Macy's in early 2017 shut 100 stores as it's been working to whittle down its real estate. It's also been working with Brookfield Asset Management to allow the real estate firm to redevelop all or part of 50 select properties. Macy's had roughly 690 locations, including those under the Bloomingdale's banner, still open as of the latest quarter.

Macy's neighborhood stores will reportedly have more self-service options and an area dedicated to picking up online orders. It's unclear what Macy's will do with the space leftover after the store shrinks in size. A spokeswoman didn't immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment.

Macy's, meanwhile, has set aside about 350 of its more productive stores to get a facelift, including expanded merchandise, remodeled dressing rooms, Starbucks coffee shops, couches for lounging and more, Gennette told the Journal. He said sales at these newly renovated magnet stores are surpassing expectations already.

Macy's is set to report fiscal third-quarter earnings before the bell on Wednesday, when it is planning to discuss its real estate strategy in greater detail.

The Rise And Fall Of Barnes & Noble

Before Amazon challenged Barnes & Noble the brick-and-mortar bookseller was one of the most prolific American chains during the twentieth century.

This holiday season could be the most crucial one of Barnes & Noble's history.

Its sales have been in a decline for six years as the bookseller cedes market share to Amazon and consumers turn to their phones or portable tablets instead of books. There's been a revolving door in the retailer's C-suite, and activist investors have piled on. Now, Barnes & Noble is considering a sale of its business after receiving interest from a handful of parties, including its so-called modern-day founder and executive chairman, Leonard Riggio, and reportedly, U.K. retailer W.H. Smith.

Barnes & Noble must prove it can deliver sales growth in its core book business this holiday season. The retail industry as a whole is expected to benefit from strong consumer spending, with the average American household expected to spend $1,536 through the holidays, according to a survey by Deloitte. That's up 25 percent from a year ago. If Barnes & Noble can't grow sales against such a healthy, economic backdrop, the company could ultimately head down the same path as its former rival Borders, or shuttered Toys R Us or Sears, which is in bankruptcy court.

All things considered, Barnes & Noble is feeling highly anxious and somewhat paranoid this holiday season, Riggio told CNBC.

We've done a lot of things this year to try to put ourselves on the right track and to get our comp-store sales number to head in the positive direction, ... and we are hoping that that comes — we are planning for it to come — during this holiday season.

The company will report its fiscal second-quarter earnings on Nov. 20, where it could say more about expectations for its holiday quarter. In September, without giving a specific range, Barnes & Noble said it expected improving sales trends, positive comps during the holiday period, better gross margins, and continued expense reductions for the remainder of the year. Analysts surveyed by Refinitiv predict same-store sales for fiscal second quarter will be down 1.75 percent, but then moderate in the holiday quarter, its fiscal third quarter ending Jan. 19, to drop only 0.25 percent.

Last holiday season, the bookseller's sales tumbled more than 6 percent, with e-commerce sales also in the red. After the dismal results, the company slashed its staff.

The Rise And Fall of Gap

In late February 2019, Gap Inc. announced plans to split into two separate publicly traded companies, sending its stock soaring on the hopes the new structure will help sharpen its focus and boost sales.

The retailer said it would spin off its most successful brand, Old Navy, into a separate, publicly-traded company. With its inexpensive basics, Old Navy has consistently accounted for more than 40 percent of the company’s total annual sales. Its other brands, Gap and Banana Republic, will join much its smaller brands, Intermix, Athleta, and Hill City, to form an as-yet unnamed company. Gap also plans to buy high-end children’s clothing line Janie and Jack and fold that into the new company.

Despite the sharp spike on the announcement, Gap shares, which have a market value of just under $10 billion, are up less than 1 percent since the start of the year, and have fallen 20 percent over the past year.

Gap CEO Art Peck, who will remain with the executive of “NewCo,” said both companies should benefit from “a sharpened strategic focus and tailored operating structure.”

A Gap spokesperson wasn’t immediately available for comment.

The Rise And Fall Of Sega

In the early '90s, Nintendo dominated the video game industry, holding over 90% of the market. It would be foolish to challenge that dominance, but that’s exactly what Sega did. With an aggressive marketing campaign and a new star in Sonic the Hedgehog, Sega solidified itself as a top contender in the industry and a force to be reckoned with. However, its reign at the top was short-lived, as it eventually caused its own downfall with a series of tragic mistakes. Here’s how Sega rose to the top and then plummeted to the bottom.
