FUNCTIONAL AREA INTERRELATIONSHIPS 2 Functional Area Interrelationships For an organization to stay competitive and grow it must create an organizational structure that fosters excellent functional area interrelationships. Within any organization collaboration among functional areas must be employed to achieve organizational goals. Kudler Fine Foods (Kudler Foods) is no exception and relies heavily on its stakeholders to carry out their roles and work collaboratively to achieve the company’s goals. Kudler Fine Foods’ Primary Reason for Existence Kathy Kudler was the Vice President of a Marketing firm but was getting tired of the constant traveling. She loved to cook gourmet foods and soon realized that gourmet cooking was not available in her location, so she decided to create a business plan. She opened her first Kudler Foods on June 18, 1998 and within nine months was profitable. Kathy Kudler worked hard to have a successful business and over the years two more shops opened. The reason organizations like Kudler Foods have mission, vision, values, and goals are to set a foundation for the business. A mission statement and a vision statement do two different jobs for companies.

Kudler Foods’ vision statement is “Kudler Fine Foods will be the premiere gourmet grocery store for those savvy shoppers who are searching for the finest meats, produce, cheeses, and wine” (Apollo Group, Inc., 2009). Mission and vision statements inspire employees to provide the best products and services to their customers. Kathy Kudler’s goals and values were passed on to her organization and are present in the company’s mission and vision statements to provide a unique shopping experience for her customers who love gourmet cooking as much as she does.
