Restaurants are one of the most common places all over the world. The restaurant business has grown rapidly in twenty first century because of the fact that almost every day there are thousands of people going to restaurant. There are many reasons for people dining in at a restaurant. People dine in at the restaurant because of the busy schedule, to socialize, to eat varieties of food, and many more. What is a restaurant? According to oxford dictionary, “Restaurant is a place where people pay to sit and utilize the service along with the food and drinks.” Looking at the current context of restaurant, the meaning of restaurant has changed widely. According to Prof. and author John R. Walker, “Delmonico’s, located in New York City, is thought to be the first restaurant in America and Delmonico’s opened its door to the public in 1827” (John, 2008 (fifth edition)).
There used to be times when people used to cook at homes which changed drastically and nine out of ten people would visit restaurant on a daily basis at least 2-3 times a day. Cooking have faded away in American because people are working more than what they used to work 10 years ago. This is one of the reasons that gave birth to restaurants and became a huge success in the twenty-first century. According to Lorri Mealey, “ By the seventeenth century, while full meals were typically eaten at home, moderately well-to-do people would hire a trattatorie(caterer) or take their meals in private salon, rather than in the main dining room of a public house”(Mealey). When did the ancient restaurant started? According to Prof. Nicholas M. Kiefer from Cornell University, “Revolutionary Paris is often cited as the birthplace of the modern-day restaurant, but restaurant existed long before the French Revolution in other locations when economics and social mores made them feasible”(KIEFER, August 2002).

Restaurant Methodology

...Introduction Restaurants are a notoriously difficult business to own or operate. Not only is it a relatively capital and employee-intensive business, restaurants are also highly regulated, low margin and in most cases have a plethora of competition to deal with. A successful restaurant can make a lot of money for the owner and a lot of prestige comes with being associated with a popular restaurant. While the food and atmosphere of a restaurant are obviously critical factors--for all segments with the possible exception of fine dining--the presentation of the menu, pricing points and other marketing considerations are equally important. One of the main objectives of a restaurant is to ensure customer satisfaction and build a repeat-customer base. According to research by the National Restaurant Association, more than half of American adults (52 percent) said they would be more likely to patronize the same restaurant if it offered a customer loyalty and reward program. Other goals of this objective include enticing regular customers to come back more often as well as introducing the restaurant to new customers. Restaurants that give frequent diner cards (such as buy 10 meals and receive the 11th meal free) typically incorporate this objective in their overall marketing plans. Objective of the study This research was done mainly to enhance the restaurant promotion and branding. Restaurant marketing is both an art and a science that is shrouded in mystery for far too many......

Types of Restaurants

...Types of Restaurants Definitions and Examples of Restaurant Concepts By Lorri Mealey, Guide Today there are many different types of restaurants, from fast food to family casual. Here is a brief overview of some of the more popular restaurant concepts. Fast Food Restaurant 
Fast food is the most familiar restaurant to most people. Chains like McDonalds and Burger King became popular in the 1950s, and helped spawn countless other concepts like Taco Bell, KFC and In&Out Burger. Fast food service attracted customers for its speed and convenience. Fast food restaurants are typically chains. If you are thinking of opening a fast food franchise, keep in mind that the initial costs of franchising are more expensive than opening an independent restaurant. Fast Casual Dining
This is one of the biggest trends right now. Fast casual is slightly more upscale than fast food. Fast casual restaurants offer disposable dishes and flatware, but their food tends to be presented as more upscale, such as gourmet breads and organic ingredients. Open kitchens are popular with fast casual chains, where customers can see their food being prepared. Boston Market is classified as fast casual. Café
A café is a restaurant that does not offer table service. Customers order their food from a counter and serve themselves. A café menu traditionally offers things such as coffee, espresso, pastries and sandwiches. Cafes originated in Europe and are strongly associated with France. They are known......
