I received this book in almost pristine condition. I am very pleased with my purchase and shipping arrangements
Great intro to running a restaurant or multiple restaurants. I use this text to teach restaurant consultants, but it is also great for operators!
This is a textbook I will definitely keep for reference even after I finish the class!!!
