The past, present and perhaps the future of the hospitality industry are closely linked. Today's lodgings are a result of many centuries of social and cultural evolution. Comfortable, sanitary and lodging once was considered the exclusive privilege of the wealthy, but with the rise of industry and the spread of democracy, hospitality became available to the common citizens. Advances in transportation enabled more people to travel to greater distances at less cost, spreading tourism across the globe.

There are different reasons why people spend their time away from home, like work or for business purpose; to go to school or college, to go for shopping, for leisure or recreational purposes, to go into hospital or prison, etc. In all these situations they will require either accommodation or food and drink or even both.

The house keeping department organizes maintenance orders for the engineering to attend to fused bulbs, broken furniture, plumbing disorders , a/c disorders etc front office can sell only properly functioning items, so to prevent revenue loss a close a coordination between engineering and maintenance and house keeping is necessary . [...]

[...] An excellent kitchen with supervisor and food handling techniques is unlikely to be appreciated if the serving area and dining room are carelessly maintained; it is obvious therefore that the condition of maintenance of all areas of food service establishments are a part of food sanitation program. DEFINTION: SANITATION: It is the creation and maintenance of hygienic and healthy condition; effective sanitation refers to the ways or mechanism, which helps to perform prevention of food spoilage by micro organism; the word sanitation is derived from the Latin word ?SANITAS? meaning ?HEALTH?.
