While plenty of people will be enjoying an Easter egg or two (hundred) this weekend, the holiday period is also a great time for investors to catch their breath and assess companies without the distraction of the market for a few days.

The assessing of companies can take many forms. For example, it’s amazing what knowledge you can garner about a company by talking to its suppliers, employees and the like. Over the holidays if you find yourself at a family gathering or BBQ chances are there is someone there with information useful to you.

The Easter break can also provide the opportunity to observe and sample first-hand the products and services of a company. Here are five tasty businesses that you may get the opportunity to research over the weekend.

Domino’s Pizza Enterprises Ltd. (ASX: DMP) operates a pizza chain spread across five countries and three continents. The company has had impressive growth and been quick to adapt to change, including utilising online ordering systems.

Coca-Cola Amatil Ltd (ASX: CCL) has slumped 22.5% this calendar year after management downgraded earnings guidance. There is a concern that customers are becoming both more health conscious and more price sensitive.

Retail Food Group Limited (ASX: RFG) recently purchased the Crust Gourmet Pizza franchise to add to its stable of food retailing businesses which include Brumby’s Bakery and Donut King.

For those partial to a healthier option, shareholders in Freedom Foods Group Ltd (ASX: FNP) have enjoyed a 171% gain in their share price in the past 12 months. Freedom is well positioned to continue to gain from its niche product lines.

Of course Easter wouldn’t be complete without chocolate. Yowie Group Ltd (ASX: YOW) has huge plans for its patented chocolate treat. Whether it proves to be successful or not, it is too early to say but it offers some tasty research for investors over the weekend.
