...Hospitality Management Vietnam is ranked as one of the rising destination for Bristish tourists and has recently been listed at No.7 in the top 10 countries that British tourists are likely to travel to in 2013 (Tuyen Phuong, 2013).

...Hotel management Introduction The article kicks off by quoting Slim Foster, the Vice President of Denihan hospitality group in New York. In his own words, “we were in a position where we were having great losses on an annual basis.” However, this trend of revenues evidently changed when the group partnered with Goeffrey Zacharian, a celebrity chef who now runs The National, a restaurant which partially belongs to Denihan. Foster goes into the details to announce that The National, under Zacharian, is producing three times the revenue that the previous one used to make. However, partnering with celebrity chefs isn’t exclusive to Denihan and neither is it new. Hotels have discovered that partnering with big name chefs is a valid strategy for revitalizing the food and beverage functions and so it is gaining ground as is evident in the increasing number of hotels and restaurants which are subscribing to the strategy. One may hence wonder what benefits the hotels reap from these partnerships. Among others, below are some of the benefits. Partnering with star chefs, according to the article, creates a halo effect and drives diners to the hotels’ restaurants in relatively higher numbers says Peter Karpinski, founder of Sage Restaurant Group. In addition to that, having a celebrity chef in the food and beverage department motivates all the others in the restaurant to work hard and offer their best, in addition to obtaining prestigious training. Considerations According to......

...Institute and State University in partial fulfillment of the requirement for the degree of Master of Science In Hospitality and Tourism Management Suzanne K. Murrmann, Chair BeomCheol (Peter) Kim Manisha Singal July 9, 2012 Blacksburg, Virginia Keywords: Service Quality, Restaurant Cleanliness, Culture Customer Perceptions of Restaurant Cleanliness: A Cross Cultural Study Seung Ah Yoo (ABSTRACT) What is a clean restaurant in customers’ viewpoints? Restaurant cleanliness is considered one of the most significant conditions when customers evaluate overall restaurant quality or decide their levels of satisfaction. However, there have been few studies of perceptions of restaurant cleanliness in customers’ eyes. Previous studies were found to use inconsistent concepts of restaurant cleanliness when evaluating restaurant cleanliness. For example, some measurement scale of restaurant quality or customer satisfaction includes only items related to a restaurant’s interior appearance to measure the restaurant cleanliness. Some researchers have also included items related to server’s appearance. In other studies, overall images of a restaurant were used to evaluate its cleanliness. This study attempts to investigate the customers’ perceptions of restaurant cleanliness. Understanding what customers consider when they evaluate a restaurant’s cleanliness can be beneficial for hospitality managers who can use the information to increase their restaurant’s quality and to satisfy their......

...Week 3 Intro to Hospitality Management I read an article on in regard to eating meat “MEAT’S IMPACT” And found that the article can potentially impact the restaurant industry if every person that frequents restaurants reads the article, and makes a conscious decision to better their health. The chance of this is likely less than a 2% chance, but if people as a group decide that they wish to benefit from changing their eating habits based on this article then it is likely that there will be a great reduction in the amount of meat that is consumed on a regular basis. The article indicates that there are many adverse effects that occur from the consumption of meat, anywhere from heart attack, cardiovascular disease to stroke, and colon cancer. So in most cases people will initially swear off the meat, but then remember meat is tasty. As with any food that is good to the palette, it is a double edged sword that shows us the product is very desirable, but we just need to remember that moderation is important to maintain a diet that will not end our lives in one way, or another. The article also mention other incentives to reduce the intake of meat such as, the amount of water it takes to produce the product, and the emissions of greenhouse gas caused from the production as well. Now, the last thing people are thinking when they are viewing a menu are things like how much water is required for this...

One should be able to monitor all the critical information about the store from individual transactions to purchases. This will make the ordering from vendors easy & the inventory manager would not waste time calculating the re-order level. * Fast checkout: A retail POS software should be able to simplify the checkout process. This means that it should not take the sales team’s much manual effort to complete a transaction. If there is still a manual process that the team has to go through, then the POS software needs a replacement. * Customer Data: A good POS can help convert the data on customer’s profile into information.

On the other hand there is a greater fear caused by the global economic instability, with price increases and a equal or less salary for each one. This leads to a greater efforts on both sides.
