1. The Full Cycle of Event Planning in a Hotel
Planning an event, like a wedding or a conference, in a hotel can be very involved. In this lesson, we will break the process down into the major points, like the role of sales and marketing, planning, budgeting, and the execution of the event.
2. Restaurant Bookkeeping: Accounting & Reporting
Running a restaurant is more than just dishing out tasty food. Understanding prime cost, cost of goods, and revenues and expenses - and how they all relate to industry standards - is equally critical to a restaurant's success.
3. How To Serve Alcohol Responsibly
In this lesson, we'll briefly review the steps a food and beverage establishment can take to serve alcohol responsibly by ensuring that customers are of legal drinking age and are not served while intoxicated.
4. Restaurant Liability with Alcohol Sales
Opting to include bar operations or alcohol sales in your restaurant establishment can bring business, but also increased liabilities. In this lesson, you'll learn more about a restaurant's responsibilities with alcohol sales.
5. Food Handler Requirements in Prime Resort Areas
