Using supermarket survey data that include a store’s adoption of a new fresh irradiated ground beef product, this paper investigates whether the adoption decision-making process differs depending on whether adoption would make the store a leader or a follower. We model the adoption decision in two ways that take the leader-follower decision into account. Our results show only limited differences in store attributes across groups classified as leaders, followers, or non-adopters. More significantly, however, the results show that store attributes such as proximity to competitors and store size, among others, play separate roles in the decision to lead or follow.
