The study tried to develop a product‐market structure of the fast‐food restaurants in the Philippines. Using the concept of hierarchical clustering based on substitution‐in‐use, the influence of three categories of situational influence were used to modify the original choice‐market mix relationship at every clustering stage. Changes in the importance of the individual components of the product‐service mix served as the basis of the link‐up among competing fast‐food restaurants.
