Gatorade G0 will incorporate both vitamins and caffeine.
The amount of caffeine will be adjusted so that it only provides a small boost to the consumer.
The name, Gatorade G0, comes very naturally because people already associate Gatorade to the letter G.
The "0" part of G0 is familiar with customers as well because it represents zero sugars or artificial sweeteners.
Although the drink has caffeine and vitamins in it, the Gatorade flavors will not be sacrificed.

Potential Benefits for Gatorade
Entering a market with an increasing demand because energy drinks are becoming more popular than coffee.
The consumer trust in the Gatorade brand will almost guarantee success
Potential Costs for Gatorade
Potential for problems with FDA because Gatorade G0 contains caffeine, however, the amount will be small enough for no potential scrutiny.
Consumers may associate the drink with sports, but Gatorade G0 is a caffeinated drink, which is not good before heavy exercise .
The consumers Gatorade G0 will be targeting are athletes, students, teens diabetics, and people on diets.
The added caffeine gives the customer a small "wake-up", which gives it appeal among busy consumers.
Gatorade is known for being a tasty drink for any time, and G0 is no exception as it can provide a satisfying boost any time the customer desires.
The target age group is 18 to 35 and through diverse advertising, G0 will expand revenue for Gatorade.
Gatorade G0 Vitamins will be supplied by Natures Products Inc to assure the best quality vitamins on the market.
The fusion of caffeine and vitamins will allow for an increase of ideas as both partners collaborate.
