What Is Hospitality?

  • It is how an individual makes other people feel

  • It can be positive and good. It can be negative and bad. Or it could be nothing at all

  • It is how an individual or group of individuals are treated in a culture or community

  • It must be consistent and constant. It must never waver

  • It is how we personally engage & interact with each other

  • Service is not hospitality.  Service is just the mechanical systematic process, while hospitality is the soul & the spirit of your operation

  • Service without hospitality is merely just a transaction in a cold building.

  • It is the humanity that brings us all together

  • Service is what we do FOR our guests while hospitality is what we do WITH our guests

  • It is the smallest moments in time & the smallest things that people do

  • We forget great service but we always remember hospitality, good or bad

Our Process For A Winning Successful Operation:

1. Hire The Right People

Hire Only Those People That Possess Authentic Positive Hospitality.

2. Treat Those Employees With Authentic Positive Hospitality

When looking to survive, fixing hospitality has the greatest impact and difference compared to fixing your food, ameneities, cleanliness, facilities & even services. Plus, it dosen’t cost you anything to do it.

What Is This Notion Of Positive & Authentic Hospitality?

  • Positive Hospitality:

    • It makes one feel good

    • Kindness, love, peace, respect, happiness, friendship, good-will

    • It is the act of caring & welcoming of a visitor, guest or stranger

    • It gives us the feeling of belonging

    • It is always generous & thoughtful

    • It is only achieved by serving with all of your heart & soul

    • This happens very seldom even in the ‘hospitality’ industry, almost becoming extinct

    • It must always be provided to all employees & guests to guarantee their respectful retention

    • The authenticity of positive hospitality is only found in the feelings of the recipient.  If you fake it, they’ll see right through your act

  • Negative Hospitality: (also know as: Hostility)

    • It makes one feel bad

    • Wrath, anger, ill-will, hatred, war, antipathy

    • Un-trained employees sticking to the ‘rules’ can be a great source of negative hospitality.  For example:

      • A busboy yelling at you because you’re not wearing a mask

      • Being arrested on a golf course because you’re not wearing a collared shirt

      • Not allowing you to check-in because you aren’t vaccinated against covid-19

      • Rude comments, dirty looks, bad attitudes

    • It Is always authentic, you can never fake being mean to someone else

    • This happens far more than people like, even in the ‘hospitality’ industry

    • You will remember negative hospitality far longer than positive hospitality

    • It will keep you up at night, replaying in your mind 

  • Zero Hospitality:

    • It makes one feel nothing at all

    • It Is like dealing with a robot

    • This happens a majority of the time even in the ‘hospitality’ industry due to desire for higher profits and a result of over-bearing procedures

    • You won’t remember your experience tomorrow
