Module Projects- The purpose of each project is to provide you with experience in demonstrating your knowledge of how the industry works and your capacity for knowing how to handle an assignment when you are in your working career. For each assignment your objective is to complete the following three sections:

  1. Report: In this section of your work, provide your answer to the project assignment. I am more interested in your questions and a summary of the responses.
  2. Process: Show your thinking about the steps you took to complete the assignment. For instance what steps did you take to prepare your answer? What sources did you use and how did you arrive at your decision?
  3. Evaluation: Evaluate what you learned and what you will improve on the next time you have an assignment like this one. There could be personal statements starting with, “I learned…,” “I surprised myself…”, or “Next time I will definitely…”

Module 3: Interview an owner/manager of a restaurant, who you do not know, about growing sales. As you will learn, customer service and attention to detail are key contributors to the success of a company. The restaurant business is especially competitive for market share. Select a restaurant general manager and interview them about what they do to assure they meet sales goals. Your 3-page report will have three parts: Your answer, how you went about your work, and what you can do to improve the next time you have such an assignment.
