Title: Hospitality

  • Answer book

Local Economy
  • State 2 ways in which a new hotel may benefit
    (help) the local economy (2 marks)
  • Employs local people
  • Uses local businesses
  • Brings in tourists
  • Tourists spend money in local shops
  • Local produce can be served in the restaurant
  • Describe why is it important to help the local
    economy? (4 marks)
  • It is important to help the local economy to
    encourage tourists into the area. It will also
    help to give local people jobs and therefore stop
    them moving away from the area. Local businesses
    will be able to expand by working within local
    establishments. If we dont help the local
    economy then businesses will not prosper and will
    have to lay staff off and possibly close down.

Describe the following types of menus.
  • A set menu for a function (2 marks)
  • This is a menu with a set amount of courses and
    limited choices, usually two or three choices for
    each course. There will be one price for the
    complete meal or buffet.
  • Take away menu (2 marks)
  • This is a menu of foods that can be similar, e.g.
    pizzas. Each dish has a set price and the food
    can be delivered or picked up. The foods are
    usually fairly cheap and they may also do meal
  • A la carte (2 marks)
  • This is a menu with a wide range of dishes for
    each course. Usually starter, fish, main and
    dessert. The food is cooked to order and can be
  • Table dhote ( daily menu) (2 marks)
  • This is a menu with a small choice of dishes at a
    set price. It can be two or three courses and
    will often have a special dish included.
  • Fast food menu (e.g. McDonalds) (2 marks)
  • This is similar to a take away menu. It usually
    consists of a range of dishes made from one type
    of food, e.g. chicken or burgers. It is usually
    cheap and may have meal deals. Can be eaten in or

Menu Planning
  • As part of the grand re-opening, the hotel is
    going to provide a special meal. Plan a suitable
    a la carte menu for the occasion, giving reasons
    for your choice (8 marks)
  • Colour, flavour, texture, time of year, lots of
    choices, individual prices, nutrition, dietary
  • When planning the meal I would choose the
  • Starters. Tomato and Basil soup, pate and melba
    toast, crab cakes, mushroom tartlets.
  • Main course. Chicken in rum and orange sauce.
    Pork loin with wild mushroom sauce. Spinach and
    ricotta lasagne
  • Fish course. Pan fried sea bass with chilli
    dressing. Plaice with lemon and dill sauce.
    Grilled turbot with sautéed leeks.
  • Desserts. Summer fruit gateau. Raspberry pavlova.
    Chocolate mousse with tuielle biscuit. Selection
    of cheese and biscuits.
  • I have chosen these dishes as they have a range
    of colours, flavours and textures. They will suit
    customers of all ages and the soup and mushroom
    tartlets and lasagne are suitable for vegetarian
    diets. They have a range of ingredients and most
    are available all year round. The desserts are
    quite light and refreshing to eat after the
    previous course. I would also offer a sorbet
    between the starter and second course to refresh
    the palate. The dishes can be cooked to order and
    will show the skills of the chef while offering a
    good nutritious meal.

Menu Planning
  • Analyse the main points that Judy and Jack have
    to consider when planning the menu for a
    childrens meal.
  • Age, skills of chef, colour, flavour, texture,
    nothing too strong in flavour, nutrition, time of
    year, cost
  • When planning the childrens meal Judy and Jack
    will have to consider the age of the children. Is
    the menu for toddlers or for older children. If
    it is for toddlers they will have to think about
    choking hazards like nuts. They will also have to
    consider the skills of the chef and what they are
    capable of making. They will also have to think
    about the time of year and what foods are readily
    available to keep the costs down. The meal should
    have a range of colours, flavours and textures to
    make the meal more appealing to the children. It
    is also important to think about nutrition and to
    ensure the meals are well balanced, they should
    have carbohydrates but not too much. They should
    also contain protein foods such as chicken, fish
    and meat. They should include fruit and
    vegetables for vitamins and as the menu is for
    children they should include calcium rich foods
    like milk and cheese for growth . Children do not
    like strong tasting foods such as chilli and
    curry so they will also need to consider this
    when planning the menu.

Menu Planning.
  • Discuss the main factors that the chef should
    consider when planning a new menu.
  • Cost, skills of chef, nutrition, special diets,
    time of year, customer preference, trends, size
    of kitchen and storage area.
  • When planning a new menu the chef will need to
    think about the cost of the ingredients to make
    the dishes, they should range in price but not be
    too expensive as customers may not buy them. They
    will also need to think about what they are
    capable of making for example its no good putting
    soufflé on the menu if every time they are made
    they fail. The meals will need to be
    nutritionally balanced as more people are looking
    at what they eat and are trying to eat healthily.
    The menu must also include foods suitable for
    people with special dietary needs such as
    vegetarian. The dishes on the menu will vary
    according to the time of year, for example you
    wont want things like soups and stews in the
    summer but you would want them in the winter.
    Also you wouldnt include things like
    strawberries in winter as they are expensive to
    purchase and this will put prices up and mean
    less profit.. It is also important to think about
    food trends and what the customer usually eats.
    Lastly you would need to think about the size of
    the kitchen and the storage area available for
    the food, you cant have an extensive menu if you
    dont have mush room to prepare and cook the food
    or to store the ingredients to make the dishes.

Menu Planning
  • As a functions manager in a local hotel Jane has
    a special responsibility for planning childrens
    parties. This week she has taken a booking for 20
    children aged 5 7. Discuss the choice of menu.
  • As the food is for children aged 5 to 7 I think
    typical party finger food would be suitable. I
    say finger food so that the children can choose
    what they want to eat and it will not be too
    messy. Also finger foods can be served cold so
    there will be no risk of small children burning
    themselves. I would include foods like egg
    sandwiches as they are popular. Maybe cheese
    sandwiches but with cheese spread rather than
    grated cheese as it is less messy and will stay
    in the sandwich when picked up. I would also
    include mini sausages, or sausage rolls. These
    are popular with children and are easy to prepare
    and serve. I would also offer things like carrot
    sticks and grapes as these are healthy and form
    one of the five a day. I would also include a
    range of fairy cakes and maybe some wafer
    biscuits but not too many as they are quite
    sweet. For drinks I would suggest fruit juice as
    it is a healthy option and better than fizzy
    drinks which are high in sugar.

  • Describe why teamwork is important in the
    hospitality industry.
  • Faster, easy, help, share ideas, on time, happy
    customers, know what to be done.
  • Teamwork is important in the hospitality industry
    as it helps to get things done quicker when you
    work as a team. If you work together it is easier
    to get things done and you can help each other,
    for example if you have finished you can help
    someone else and share the workload. You can
    share ideas and ensure you get things done on
    time. If things are done on time then the
    customers will be happy with the service. Also if
    you work as s team and someone os off you will
    know what needs to be done and someone can take
    on the role of the person who is away.

  • What qualities do you need to be a team leader?
  • Communication, time keeping, organisation,
    helpful, knowledgeable, training, confident.
  • The qualities needed to be a good team leader
    are good communication skills so that you can
    relay information to the rest of the team. You
    should also have good time keeping and be
    flexible as you may have to work long hours and
    at short notice. You should be organised and know
    what is expected from you this will help to
    ensure the work is done on time. You should be
    helpful and able to advise others when they are
    unsure of what to do. You should have a good
    knowledge of the job and be able to train others.
    You will also need to be confident as you will
    have to speak to all members of the team.

  • What information would you need when taking a
    booking for a conference (meeting)? ( 4 marks)
  • Name, address, credit card details, special
    requirements, number of delegates, layout of
    room, meals required, accommodation, equipment
  • Evaluate the role of the conference manager on
    the day of the conference (meeting) (6 marks)
  • The role of the conference manager on the day is
    to ensure firstly that the room is set up as
    required. They will brief the staff involved to
    ensure they know what they have to do during the
    day and when to serve the refreshments. They will
    also speak to the chef to ensure he is aware of
    the number of guests expected and check dietary
    needs and what time the food will be ready to be
    served. When the organiser arrives they will meet
    and greet them and check they are aware of fire
    procedures and where the toilets are. They will
    check they have everything they need and tell
    them the meal a times. They will check throughout
    the day that everything is ok and may ask the
    organiser to complete an evaluation form in at
    the end of the day. They will also ask if
    everything was ok and if anything could be done
    to improve their service.
  • What equipment might you need for a conference
    (meeting)? (4 marks)
  • Pen, paper, food, refreshments, OHP, white board,
    ICT facilities

Health and Safety

    e.g. Function or meeting, health and Safety is
  • Describe how you would ensure the room is safe
    for the customers.
  • Trips, spills, decorations, fire, first aid,
    wheelchair, signage, sharp objects, lighting,
    damaged equipment
  • When planning a room for any event it is
    important to ensure it is safe for all the
    customers. There should not be anything that can
    cause people to trip like table clothes hanging
    on the floor or bags and coats in the alleyways
    between tables. It is important that there is
    room for everyone to get between the tables and
    this includes wheelchair access. If anything is
    spilt on the floor it should be cleaned up and a
    wet floor sign put up so that there is less risk
    of staff or customers slipping. Fire exits
    should be well sign posted and clear to enable a
    fast exit in the event of a fire. Relevant fire
    extinguishers should be in place and staff should
    be briefed on fore safety and how to get
    customers out quickly and safely. There must also
    be a qualified first aider and staff should be
    aware of who this is. Any decorations that have
    been out up should be secure and away from any
    source of heat. Warning signs should be in place
    for things like hot counters where food is served
    and staff can tell customers that plates are hot.
    All sharp object should be kept away from the
    edges of tables and broken glass cleaned up
    immediately. Rooms should have good lighting and
    be free from any damage like torn carpets that
    can cause tripping hazards. One way to ensure the
    room is safe is to complete a risk assessment
    before the event to make sure everything is safe
    and ready.

Record Keeping
  • State three ways information can be kept in a
  • Computer, paper, booking register. Spread sheet
  • When booking a room for a conference what
    information would you need to give?
  • Name, address, contact details, credit card
    details, date, number of days, number of guests,
    special requirements
  • Why do hotels keep records of rooms booked?
  • To ensure that rooms are not double booked.
  • So that staff are aware of what rooms are still
    available for hire
  • So that any queries can be checked against the

Profit making
  • What is meant by overheads when working out
    the cost of a meal? (2 marks)
  • Over heads cover things like rent, mortgages,
    gas, electricity, loans and repairs and are
    included in the selling price.
  • What is VAT? (2 marks)
  • VAT stands for value added tax, it is set by the
    government and is currently 20
  • What do labour costs cover? (2 marks)
  • Labour costs cover the cost of staff wages both
    permanent and agency.
  • Why is it important to make a profit? ( 4 marks)
  • If you dont make a profit then you cant afford
    to improve the building, repair anything that is
    broken. This will mean that you will eventually
    have to lay staff off because you cant afford to
    pay them, no staff will mean poor customer care
    and then you will lose customers and eventually
    have to close down.
  • How can you improve things if you don't make a
    profit? ( 4 marks)

Profit making
  • How can you improve things if you don't make a
    profit? ( 4 marks)
  • Decorate, training, menu, special offers,
  • If you are not making a profit there are several
    things you can do. You could re decorate to give
    the establishment a new image, this would
    encourage customers to come in and see how it has
    changed. You could also retrain the staff on
    customer care and customer service, they would
    then know that the customer comes first and would
    give a better service, this would mean that
    customers would tell their friends and you would
    get more customers. You could reduce the menu and
    change it so that you do not have as much food
    waste, you could include special meal deals such
    as 2 for 10. Lastly you could advertise on local
    radio, or by posting flyers through doors and by
    putting an advert in the local paper showing the
    special deals you are offereing.

Dealing with complaints
  • How would you deal with a complaint about poor
  • Apologise, details, team leader, solve, free,
  • The first thing you would do is apologise to the
    customer. Take the details of the complaint and
    the customers name, then if you are not a team
    leader you would refer the issue to your team
    leader who may then take over. You would ensure
    the problem is resolved and the team leader might
    offer them something free such as a free meal or
    free bottle of wine. You would then apologise to
    the customer again.
  • Why is it important to deal with complaints
  • It is important to deal with complaints quickly
    so that the customer feels valued. They will then
    pass on this to their friends and family and then
    you will get more customers. If you dont deal
    with complaints quickly this will have the
    opposite effect and they will tell people about
    the poor service and then others wont come to the

Customer Care
  • Define the term customer care.
  • Customer care means putting the customer first
    and making them feel valued and happy with the
    service t you provide.
  • Describe the effects poor customer care will have
    on a business.
  • Tell friends, few customers, food waste,, lay off
    staff, loss of profit, close down.
  • If you have poor customer care the customers will
    not be happy. When they go home they will tell
    their friends and family and word will get round.
    This will then mean that fewer customers will
    come to the establishment and food that has been
    bought in will be wasted because no one has come
    in to eat. You will eventually have to lay staff
    off as you will have more staff than customers
    and you cant afford to pay the wages if you dont
    have money coming in. This means you will not be
    making a profit and cant pay any bills so you
    will have to close down.

Customer Care
  • Describe how you can ensure your staff have good
    customer care skills.
  • Training, feedback, evaluation, comment cards
  • To ensure your staff have good customer care
    skills they should be trained regularly. Training
    can be done in house, that is at work, you can
    get someone to come in and do some training or
    the staff can go to a training day held
    elsewhere. You will know if your staff need
    training because you can look at the customer
    feedback they may have given on your website or
    on evaluation forms after a conference for
    example. You can also ask customers to fill our a
    comment card before they leave and you can look
    to see what needs improving. All staff should be
    trained regularly and those with good customer
    care skills could show others at these training
    sessions. Staff can also share ideas on how to
    ensure they have good customer care and talk
    about what they have done well in the past.

Customer service
  • How can you make sure customers are happy with
    the service?
  • Feedback, evaluations comment cards
  • You can check your customers are happy with the
    service they receive by looking at their feedback
    on your website or feedback they give you when
    they leave. The receptionist should ask if
    everything is ok and take notes if there is
    anything wrong. You can also ask people at
    conferences to fill out an evaluation form at
    the end of the day or meeting. You can leave
    customer comment cards in the rooms for people to
    fill in. You can then evaluate all of these and
    make changes where necessary.
  • Discuss how you can present a positive image in
    the hotel and in the staff and why it is
    important ( 8 marks)

Customer service.
  • Discuss how you can present a positive image in
    the hotel and in the staff and why it is
  • Hotel décor, furnishings, repair
  • Staff dress, uniform, manners, customer care
  • Why more customers, more profit, expand
  • You can present a positive image in the hotel by
    making sure the décor is clean and is not looking
    old and shabby. Furniture should be fit for
    purpose and in good repair. For example when you
    walk into reception it should be warm and
    welcoming and inviting as this is the first
    place you will see. Staff can present a positive
    image by the way they dress, corporate uniforms
    will help customers identify who is staff and
    which area they work in. Staff should be clean
    and smartly dressed, they should be polite at all
    times and remember the customer comes first. They
    should make the customers feel welcome and safe.
  • It is important to present a positive image
    in both the hotel and the staff so that customers
    are happy and will come back, this will mean you
    make more profit and may be able to expand.

  • It is important to have regular staff training
    to keep up to date with new legislation that may

    and safety matters. All staff should be trained
    in this so they know what to do in the event of
    a fire and to ensure customers are safe at all
    times. Staff can be trained on sire and
    specialist people will come in and do the
    training. For example the fire brigade may come

    that are set of by sensors so they only come on
    when someone is actually in the corridor. They
    can only put the heating on when it is cold and
    only use the air conditioning when needed. They
    can use energy saving lighbulbs in all rooms and
    advise guests to turn things like televisions off
    when they are not in use. The heating can also be
    thermostatically controlled so that is cuts off
    when the room reached temperature. They can save
    water by asking guests to use towels more than
    once and to take showers rather than baths as it
    uses less water. They can have dual flush toilets
    or put hippo bricks on them to save water. They
    can have taps that only set out small jets of
    water when washing hands. They can only serve
    water on tables when customers ask for it and
    lastly they can re use washing up water to water
    the gardens or use economy wash cycles for
    bedding and towels.
