David McDonald pointed out that it’s a weakness to have denial for the changes. He stated that their future is guaranteed by their ability to adapt to the changes. By their ability to quickly adapt to the changes, they manage to gain more success over their weak opponents who don’t have the capability to an instant adaptation of changes. Some of the changes might be brought about by the consumers’ change in tastes and preferences. They develop different needs, and they start preferring different things depending on time and cultures. He also noted that adaptation is not enough since they have to come up with different solutions to fully meet their consumers’ tastes and preferences.
OSI Group has been able to establish two Culinary Innovation Centers in the past few years. The first one is based in Aurora, Illinois while the second one is based in Shanghai, China.
