Abstract:

The hospitality industry is generally referred to as businesses that provide accommodation and foodservice. Traditionally an entrepreneurial business, it now includes organizations ranging from small independent cafes to large multinational corporations. Businesses in the hospitality industry have many organizational structures to include whole ownership, franchising, consortia, and management contracts as key configurations. Affected by capital investment, travel and tourism trends, threats and opportunities, the hospitality industry has proved resilient.
