Why Banquets Can Be Profitable • Banquet meals are often priced higher than regular restaurant meals. • All guests select from a relatively limited number of menu items; this eases food production requirements and reduces waste. • The number of attendees at the meal event is guaranteed; the number of service staff required is known in advance. • There are often additional guest charges for setting up the room and for other related expenses. • Mandatory service charges help to ensure that the best of the hotel’s servers work banquet events, and these workers are scheduled only for as long as they are needed.
