Food, housekeeping and laundry service are the elements that help in maintaining excellent standards of service in hotels, resorts, motels, and dining facilities. These are not just important for maintaining good standards of service, but also for increasing sales. A major trend is sweeping across the hospitality business and that is the outsourcing of laundry. Earlier most hotels and other hospitality establishments used to have on premise laundry service, but now a majority of them are outsourcing this department.
