4. BUFFET BREAKFAST:

Of all hotel meals, it is often the service of breakfasts which seems to give the management the most headaches, generally because the majority of guests arrive for breakfasts within a very few minutes of each other, all requiring fast service.

However well planned the service may be, this sudden influx of customers can cause havoc, which may be further aggravated by staff shortages. To overcome these problems and to meet the needs of their guests, some hotels have in recent years introduced a self-service breakfast buffet, which successfully provides a fast break-fast service.
