Model Summary: There are multiple primary drivers controlling this model, in each geographic region (Americas, CAP, and EMEA). The primary drivers are net new company operated stores added, comp store sales, and the ratio of operating expenses (excluding depreciation) as a percentage of revenue. This model assumes that the CAP segment will face increased competition from companies such as Luckin, who has a better delivery and mobile app presence in the region. The model also assumes that the U.S. segment will have improved results because of new beverage offerings and beneficial changes to the customer loyalty program, and the European segment will be facing economic downturn. These assumptions have led me to forecast growth in U.S. operating margin and revenue, as well as a decline in CAP operating margin and revenue growth rate.
