The buffet is a popular and profitable form of food presentation found in nearly every kind of food service operation.There are at least three reasons for this popularity:
1. Visual appeal.
An attractive presentation of foods has the effect of lavishness and ample quantity, and careful arrangement and garnish suggest quality as well.
The buffet allows the restaurant to serve a large number of people in a short time with relatively few service personnel.
Buffet service is adaptable to nearly every kind of food (except items that must be cooked to order, like broiled and deep-fried foods) and to all price ranges, occasions, restaurant styles, and local food customs.
