Feasibility Study - Expanding U.S. Company to India

Please help prepare a feasibility study concerning what a company (Papa John's Pizza Company headquartered in USA) will need to know to market its products and to manage employment relations as effectively as possible for expansion in another country (India). This venture must not use the help of another business that is already there, only Papa John's.

As I indicated above, I am required to prepare this study for expansion of Papa John's Pizza Company headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, USA into India. As it stands right now, Papa John's does not have any locations in India, but they do have some in Asia. Further, one of Papa John's biggest competitors, Domino's Pizza, is very successful in India already. I am hoping to leverage some of Domino's successes in India.
