McCaysville GA (hospitalitybusinessnews.com) April 22,2015 – Every hotel or restaurant has check lists. These check lists come in many different forms but at the end of the day they have one goal. That goal is to ensure that your business is conforming to set standards and procedures.
In order to ensure that everything is being done, according to the plan, Managers perform audits of their areas to ensure compliance with the standards.
