Furthermore, we also wanted to observe that what problems have been faced by both the companies as well as the customers once they changed their names. Another aim of this research was to identify the reasons behind the separation of the bakeries. Our research was a qualitative research in which we have done non probability sampling and we used convenience sampling technique. Population was the customers of Tehzeeb and Rahat in Rawalpindi and sample size was 60. Data was collected through questionnaires and analyzed through Miles & Huberman’s method.

PROBLEM STATEMENT
COMPARISON OF STRENGTHS, WEAKNESSES AND CUSTOMERS LOYALTY & SATISFACTION OF TEHZEEB & RAHAT
TEHZEEB BAKERS:
It’s been 75 years of Tehzeeb Bakers in the business of Bakery. Its origin is the famous historic place Shimla which was considered as the summer capital of sub-continent. Their chain starts with Chaudhry Hakeem Uddin Noon, who started baking at Roti Godown in Shimla. Chaudhry Hakeem Uddin Noon opened the most popular bakery of the region by the name of “Shimla Bakery” which made him the symbol of quality and hospitality. After partition it became the most popular household brand of Rawalpindi cantonment. With the next generation in business, the heritage of Shimla was conferred upon Rahat Bakery which was run by the sons of Chaudhry Hakeem Uddin. They are following their promise of uncompromising quality and unparalleled standards through ages. They become synonym of quality and standard in bakery and baked food products.
In north and south of Pakistan, its fame was spreading as fragrance. Because of the success of Rawalpindi branch, they opened another branch in blue area, Islamabad.
With the tradition of this running business, their third generation also came up with this bakery business. They now proudly represent their bakery business as Tehzeeb Bakers by gradually evolving and transforming into better quality and improved standards. They are successful in running their inherent business and are able to maintain their culture and heritage.

RAHAT BAKERS:
It’s been a half century of Rahat Bakers in the bakery business. Rahat bakers have been able to give good quality, better taste of baked food items in Lahore that people can eat and enjoy without the fear of germs or bad health effects. Its founders were Chaudhary Ghulam Nabi & Chaudhary Rehmatullah who had greatly missed quality and hygienic baked products on the market, so they decided to start his own bakery business.

This successful chain business was only possible through the combines efforts and team work of these brothers and they were able to run such an amazing business.
FROM RAHAT TO TEHZEEB
SEPARATION
FROM RAHAT TO TEHZEEB:
The branches of Rahat bakers, owned by Khalil Noon in Islamabad and Rawalpindi, had changed their names from Rahat to Tehzeeb bakers. This bakery was established by noon family before the partition. It was known as Shimla Bakery at that time. In 60’s it was renamed as Rahat Bakers. As it was a family business, it was owned by several family members coming one after another, it leads to some unconnected operations of the bakery and it leads to separation. The customers were complaining about the confusion and inconsistencies of the operations. It leads to the need of distinguishing them, resulting in changing the name of both bakeries.. According to Zahid Khan, Creative Consultant, Orange Advertising (the creative and media agency for Tehzeeb Bakers), “It was a difficult decision as it meant giving up the decades long brand equity associated with the name Rahat, but we felt it was necessary.” TV advertisements have been used to communicate this decision to the customers.

DATA ANALYSIS
QUALITATIVE DATA ANALYSIS
Miles and Huberman
For Qualitative data analysis, Miles and Huberman had devised a method in 1994 by the name of Content Analysis. It consists if following three steps:
1. Data reduction. It refers to the process of reducing and organizing a very large amount of data that has been obtained and collected. It involves coding, writing summaries, discarding irrelevant data and so on.
The first step is to try and discard all irrelevant information, but do ensure that it can be accessed later if required, as unexpected findings may require you to re-examine the data which was previously considered unnecessary.
2. Data display. In this step, the organized and reduced data is displayed in the form of graphs, tables, pie charts, bar charts etc.
3. Conclusion drawing/verification. Finally, the organized and displayed data is used to draw out conclusions. These initial conclusions can then be verified. Their validity is examined by comparing them to the existing field notes or further data collection.
