Motorcafe: Scaling Up
Manpreet Singh, chief executive officer of the Bosch multi-brand car service provider Motorcafe, wanted to scale up his business, which he established in 2010 in Mohali, India. The multi-brand car service sector promised huge market potential for Singh, but he faced some challenges: Bosch had failed to provide the expected support; the brand was being diluted by poor services offered by other service providers in neighbouring areas; competition from other multi-brand players in the Indian market was ever-growing; original equipment manufacturer workshops were renewing their competitive efforts; and customer needs were rapidly changing. How should Singh scale up his venture in the face of changing market dynamics and implement Motorcafe's innovative value proposition for Indian car owners?
