C 40 300
D 30 400

A cursory look at the table will reveal that location D is performing the best, followed by A, C and B.  

Since the data has been normalized, scaled and factorized, brand can further correlate with their distribution network and on ground presence to identity where marketing is required and that brings us to the marketing plan in itself.
