Foodservice Systems

You read about the different foodservice systems. In the Learning Activity you practiced with some of these foodservice system concepts to get the broad perspective of how and why entities choose certain food systems and why. In this assignment you will apply what you learned to various fictitious scenarios.

Your submission must be original as it will be submitted to Turnitin.com.
