This paper notes that the hospitality industry, which includes travel, businesses, hotels, restaurants, and theme parks among other businesses, operates on a relatively small margin in most cases and can be adversely affected by economic changes and by customer dissatisfaction that then translates into bad word of mouth. Businesses like hotels and restaurants thus have to set and meet quality standards that contribute to customer satisfaction and also must provide customer service. At the same time, such businesses have to try to keep down labor costs in order to stay within the small profit margin they usually face. This paper discusses some of these issues by examining the way that the Four Seasons Hotel chain has managed costs and quality in recent years. The Four Seasons Hotel Chain is a Canadian-based company that began with one hotel in Toronto.
