Brand extension, influential factors on it and the manner in which brand extension affects the consumer’s attitude toward the parent brand are the main subjects of this article with traditional brands, marketers have spent many dollars and many years to establish brand awareness and build equity. Building and managing strong brands is considered to be one of the key drivers of success in the hospitality industry.
