In normal hotel setting, providing quality meals to esteemed customers is one the basic elements of success. An assessment of Betty’s food and beverages menu reveals that the hotel provides meals that meet the nutritional requirements required of any diet. This is shown by a number of factors, such as, the combination of food items served during major meal times like breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This combination entails composes of fruits, vegetables, proteins, and adequate carbohydrates. As a result, customers get nutritionally enriched whenever they buy a meal in any of the hotel’s branches, which makes them better than other hotel chains in the area. On the other hand, the hotel management fails to provide a clear monitoring of the nutrition standards during preparation through provision of an inventory.

As a result, Betty’s chain of restaurants enjoys a huge following of customers who come from diverse economic and social backgrounds. Additionally, the hotel has a well established feedback system, which it uses to monitor customer experience to admirable standards. On the other hand, the hotel management fails to provide an efficient mechanism for ensuring that delivery of foods to homes for local deliveries is running smoothly.
The local public health authority of Stone Valley community is responsible for ascertaining the standards in the hotel industry. This is carried out through regular inspections of the premises to ensure that all the required parameters are being met. The parameters include: existence of a proper waste disposal mechanism, rodent management, hygiene in food preparation, and provision of sanitation facilities. In this regard, Betty’s chain of hotels meets the standards of rodent management and hygienic food preparation. However, they fail to meet the required standards of waste disposal. This is shown by the lack of an efficient waste collection system that is efficiently operational. For example, the public health report shows that there are instances when the hotel fails to deliver their garbage disposal bins to the designated area by the council. As a result, this exposes customers to public health menace.

Indeed, Betty’s hotel chain is attempting to bring into focus the main aspects of the hotel industry in order to withstand competition.
