Hotel living – a dream come true! But what would a good hotel be without top-notch restaurant service? We’ll explain the benefits and how to create one that’s just right for you.

1. For your customers

For many people, staying in a hotel is synonymous with absolute relaxation. And relaxation means no worries about laundry, housework or meals. So the first benefit for your customers is to relax as much as possible. With breakfast on site and the possibility of returning late in the evening, after exploring the surrounding area, and getting your feet under the table before returning to your room, your stay becomes magical!

Offering a catering service in the evening is also one less thing for your customers to worry about: no need for money, everything is put on the bill, no need to look for a restaurant on the other side of town, the opportunity to rest a little more…

At last, it’s an added pleasure for them! Not only will they enjoy a few nights at your place, but you’ll also be offering them the best your culinary territory has to offer – what more could you ask for?

2. For you

The advantages for hotels of having an efficient and tasty catering service are many:
– You get more visibility: on
for example
– You earn more money because your customers buy from you
– Customers can come to your hotel for a meal and discover your hotel and stay there.
Last but not least, there’s the advantage of reputation: if you have a nose for good food and find a talented chef, your hotel is bound to win! Le

Of course, you don’t have to start with a top chef right away, but you can be sure that good food will be the talk of the town!

3. Where to start

First, ask yourself a few simple questions:
– What is my target audience?
– What do I want to offer: breakfast, lunch, dinner?
How? In the bedroom and the lounge, or just one of them?
– What type of kitchen? Terroir or international?
Once you’ve got these answers, start looking for a chef and a brigade. This search is based on the type of kitchen you want. If your customers are looking forauthenticity, go for a seasonal, local cuisine. If you have lots of children and families, go for something international.
You can even offer several menus! For example, an“on the go” menu at lunchtime, and a more gastronomic, regional menu in the evening. In this way, you can satisfy the needs of your resident customers, as well as those of external customers.

What about you? What catering services do you offer? If you also have questions about the type of furniture to buy,
