What Is Hospitality?

Hospitality has to do with providing the best service possible to people who are eating out, traveling, touring, visiting parks, taking cruises, going to meetings and conventions, and staying in hotels. Tens of thousands of people in this country are involved in the hospitality industry doing all kinds of different things at various levels. Maybe you’ve even been a server at a local restaurant while you’re in school.

If you see the value of good service for yourself and others and like working with people, the hospitality field offers many varied opportunities.  Some of these careers include a restaurant manager, a chef, a meeting or convention planner, a wedding consultant, and a travel agent.
