Target Market Analysis: Your manager, Francis Del Corral, has asked you to conduct a target market analysis. Using your analysis, you will recommend a target market for the new pet food line and determine the desired customer experience. Francis wants you to clearly demonstrate how your recommendations align to the companys overall marketing strategy in a written report supported by evidence from research.

Note: If this project would be appropriate for a company you work for, you may use that company instead of the one provided in the scenario. If you choose a different company, you must provide a 1-page summary with background information about the company, their overall marketing strategy, and a new product line. Present your summary in the last section of your written report. For an example of how to present this information, review the Target Market Analysis: SNHU Pet Supply Case Study.
