Scenario with following Script:

Dalman: That was a great meeting Lei.

Lei: Thanks Dalman. By the way, I wanted to ask you something. Have you noticed the two new franchise operations that offer food and beverages similar to that of Sandwich Blitz? These companies may not have entered the market yet, but, I am sure it is only a matter of time.

Lei: You know we have the resources to open two additional locations if good places can be found. The recent economic downturn has adversely affected the occupancy rates in the larger office parks that have historically been good locations for their shops. We could always look at other cities but we have never considered this.

Dalman: Lei, do you really think we should expand again? If we do, should it be a small expansion or should they try something on a larger scale.

After listening to Lei and Dalman talk, and also including the information from your readings in the text for Unit 3, what do you think are the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) that the business faces if Dalman and Lei commit to a large-scale expansion of their business? Be sure to identify at least one strength, one weakness, one opportunity, and one threat that apply to the scenario.
