Abstract

This paper provides an overview of the application of microeconomic theories in fast food marketing. The aim is to bring out the interrelationship between marketing and microeconomics with respect to the fast food industry. The paper examines some conceptual and theoretical tools that will enhance the marketing practices of managers in the fast food industry. Hence, the marketing aspects of international fast food firms are analyzed within the framework of the concept of consumer behaviour and monopolistic market structures. The paper further analyzes the market structures and its implications on the profit, cost and revenue of fast food firms. The concluding part of this paper brings out the marketing implications of the theory of consumer behaviour and market structures and also describes the strategies that firms in a monopolistic market can use to increase their bottom line, become competitive and increase their market share.
