And so people with similar socio economic characteristics may cluster together. Second they have similar transport and shopping options. It is easily advertised in those areas. In the case of restaurants these are most population of upper class, and mostly the workers of different organizations visit the restaurant that’s why restaurants sought in the commercial areas. Business men segment the fast food restaurant in the posh and commercial areas because upper class usually visits the fast food restaurants there.
Consumer can be grouped on the basis of characteristics such as age of household composition. This is easy to do and reach such segments by media. But age and other demographics are only closely related to behavior. Usually teenagers are fond of fast food. If you visit KFC and McDonald’s you can easily observe that the majority of customers are teenagers.
Personality, attitudes , Opinions and life styles are often used for segmentation basis. These characteristics have some relationship to behavior and provide insight into how to communicate with chosen segments. Commonly the people who having soft attitude want fun every time, so they tend to visit fast food restaurants.
