Today we went on three different company visits. First we went to the TEDA cardiovascular hosptial, then the noodle company, and last the shanghai pudong bank. I was more impressed with the noodle company then I thought I would be. I had never toured a company like that before and I thought it was interesting to see how everything was made. As a marketing major I thought this was a really good way to market their brand. People can come in and see exactly how the food is made and packaged and even get to taste the product at the end of the tour. The tour guide also told us that Master Kong has branched out and expanded their business to restaurants as well. A group of us actually went to out to the Master Kong's restaurant and it was extremely good. The price was very reasonable for the amount of food you received. The bowl of soup I ordered had very tender meat and fresh vegetables. I thought the restaurant was a lot better than the noodles we tried at the factory, but I did expect it to be a little bit better than the instant noodle containers. I asked the lady if they sell these in the United States and she told me that they only distribute them in China. I thought this was interesting because I feel that most companies that make packaged foods want to be as global as possible. I'm not sure if all Chinese company want to stay in China but I thought that this was very interesting that the noodle factory only distributes to China. Being college students that eat Ramen a lot I feel that Master Kong's instant noodles would be very popular in the United States.
