A1 was located in Poyle 14 Ind Est/Newlands Dr, Slough SL30DX. The similarities of the twolocations are that they both use up high amount of space of land due to their sizes. As cocacola factory is huge it needs a lot of land in order to build itself properly. In contrast to Tesco,as Tesco is a superstore it obviously needs a lot of space for land due to the fact that it willprovide the maximum facilities any Tesco format would provide. Thus is it important that bothcompanies have a lot of space of land – which they do.However, coming to the differences, there are many differences in their location. As we knowthat Tesco is a tertiary business and needs to be located in a populated area where there arecustomers who want to shop at Tesco, thus it will need to choose a location where there ispopulation however it will also need to consider other factors such as accessibility (whetherthere are transport links to access Tesco). This is because if Tesco is not accessible then itwon’t get many customers and suppliers will have difficulty in delivering the products aswell.However, Tesco chose their location effectively as the area they have based their store at ispopulated and is easily accessible due to the motorway of A40, and the bus stops and thePerivale train station. This location seems like a perfect location for Tesco to be based at. In comparison to Coca Cola, as they are a factory and come under the secondary business,they will need a more isolated place where there is not much population due to the fact thatfactory works causes a lot of air pollution and noise pollution thus there is a very high chanceof getting complaints from people around who live nearby. To avoid these complaints cocacola is influenced to choose a location which is not populated however it does have roadtransport to deliver products. However, Coca cola chose the correct location for themselveswhich is not populated and has a road transport link. They will not distract anyone or causethem any problem thus this location is very effective for them.Overall Tesco has chosen the correct location for themselves which has easy accessibility bytrain, bus, car and trucks. Also the area is populated so customers can be expected,however more customers can be expected from the A40 motorway. Also the land is large soApplied Business Double Award: Unit 1 Section A

To conclude I would say that thislocation of Tesco brings them many benefits thus there could not have been a better locationfor it. Similarly to coca cola, they have chosen themselves the correct location aswell whichis less populated, has road transport link, and is large in terms of land. Thus this location ofCoca Cola brings them benefits aswell. Ownership of Tesco and Coca ColaTesco and coca cola are both a PLC, they both started off as a sole trader, then theybecame a private limited company, and then they both became a public limited company.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
