More About This Textbook

Overview

Organized around the well-proven foodservice systems model, FOOD SERVICE ORGANIZATIONS: A MANAGERIAL AND SYSTEMS APPROACH, 8/e provides detailed and current information on how managers can optimally transform human, material, facility, and operational inputs into outputs of meals, customer satisfaction, employee satisfaction, and financial accountability.
